A SIREN OF THE SILVER SCREEN, SCARLETT JOHANSSON HAS STUNNED SOFIA COPPOLA AND SERVED AS WOODY ALLEN’S MUSE. NOW THE FAMED ACTRESS IS ON A « PSYCHOTIC » QUEST—EMBODYING JANET LEIGH FOR THE FILM HITCHCOCK—AND RETURNING TO THE GREAT WHITE WAY IN CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
JEAN-PAUL GOUDE Did you watch Hitchcock movies when you were growing up?
SCARLETT JOHANSSON I did. My mom was a huge movie buff. We had the whole collection. Of course we watched Psycho, but I was always terrified of it. Strangers on a Train, I loved that one. And Vertigo, which I never understood until I got older. We did, we watched a lot of Hitchcock movies.
JPG How did you prepare for one of the most iconic scenes in movie history?
SJ Hmm, how did I prepare? Well, I just prepared myself to get very, very wet…she says with a glimmer in her eye! 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—
JPG Wow, that sounds dangerous.
SJ But that’s what he does! 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.
JPG What about Hitchcock’s famously lewd behavior with his actresses. Does the film address that?
SJ Oh it does, it goes into the many perversions of Hitchcock. We get to see the mind of Hitchcock. That’s really what the film is about: his struggle at the twilight, or in the autumn, of his career. He had all this success, like North by Northwest, and everybody was looking for him to have another huge hit like that. And he found this pulp novel that kind of allowed him to explore all his perversions. The film is based on many of those. I play Janet Leigh, who we were talking about before, who was married to Tony Curtis with two children. She couldn’t be a victim like some of his other actresses were—like Tippi Hedren and Vera Miles.
