Scarlett Johansson talks shower scene in 'Hitchcock'

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Scarlett Johansson stars in the upcoming drama-biography, Hitchcock, as Janet Leigh. The beautiful actress opened up about filming the iconic film and the famous shower scene.

USA Today reports that the 27-year-old actress opened up to V Magazine about the film in which she costars with Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren.

The Avengers actress discussed the much-talked about shower scene, admitting, “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.”

She continues, “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, you know…"

After Hitchcock, Johansson is set to star in Under the Skin, Don Jon’s Addiction, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as well as the recently announced The Avengers 2.
