Scarlett Johansson took to the shower for the cover of V magazine’s Winter 2012 issue.
The gorgeous actress is currently promoting her role in the upcoming film “Hitchcock.” As she explained to V, “We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet. They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don’t care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either.” Johansson continued, “You have got to be brave, get into the shower, and face Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock jabbing you in the face with a 12-inch kitchen knife.”
Getting into character didn’t take much for Johansson. “As much as Anthony Hopkins is a pussycat, he’s terrifying. Maybe I watched “Silence of the Lambs” too many times when I was a kid. Maybe I was having some flashbacks. So I didn’t need too much preparation for the scene.”
