Scarlett Johansson Channels Janet Leigh for 'V' Magazine

Scarlett Johansson Channels Janet Leigh for 'V' Magazine

Scarlett Johansson recreates the famous Psycho shower scene featuring Janet Leigh in the Winter 2012/2013 issue of V Magazine, on newsstands November 15.

Here is what the 28-year-old Hitchcock actress had to share with the mag:

On shooting the iconic shower scene: “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. 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.”

On her sex appeal: “I think all little girls are aware of their sex appeal, I think probably more so when they’re pubescent. I mean I remember being an extremely flirtatious little girl. I liked boys. I think I was also inspired by certain films I watched when I was a girl. I loved Judy Garland and I loved these Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals and I had this idea of romance—the dream girl getting the dream guy—and all that stuff.”

On living in Paris: “I’m living and vacationing here all at once. Then I go back to New York to start preparation for a play in the fall. But I’m convinced it will be the death of me. So I’m going to spend a couple of months mourning the loss of my existence.”

She is so overrated.

“I think all little girls are aware of their sex appeal,”
what a creepy thing to say.

# 3

Say what you want, I personally ADORE her. And she’s right about girls being aware of their sex appeal….. I know I was. Stop being prude-ish.

# 4

Remaking Psycho … Mistake.
Scarlett Johansson … Big mistake.

# 5

@Daphne: It’s not a remake, idiot.

# 6

Are you sure she has both twins?
It inst uncommon for one twin to come home from hospital before the other, especially when prem and it really looks as if that is only one car seat on her pram?

# 7

# 8

Overrated Jewish scum….

@creed:

PROMOTING PAEDOPHILIA, BRAINWASHED IDIOT SCARLETT WHOREHANSSON….

Omg, people. Don’t you remember when you were younger? And I think for her littler girls are 15-16.
Good she said about it. Nobody wants to even hear about it, but it’s normal, guys. We have to speak about sex, because now, for young people sex is as perverse as Rihanna, when she’s having a fun in a clubs with prostitutes.

@Lou: I am around the same age as Scarlett and I think she meant teenage girls too. A 15-16 year old to me a little girl, still a child. Scarlett is beautiful anyways. Don’t get all th hate for her.
