Scarlett Johansson: Nudity is ‘Liberating’

scarlettnakieIn her new thriller, Under the Skin, Scarlett Johansson plays an alien sent to Earth to prey on human males — and the seductress role in the film directed by Jonathan Glazer called for her to be naked. Quite a bit.

Not accustomed to such displays, Johansson had to psyche herself up for it — despite being one of the most beautiful women on Earth. She told Yahoo Movies:

“I’m a pretty private person. It’s not like I want to be displaying myself all over the place. But I think I realized that through the process of just letting go and allowing myself as the character to be totally present in the moment, and making the discovery of my own self, as [my character] does… I realized what kind of judgment I place on myself, and how self-conscious I am about all different kinds of things. That wasn’t just the nudity, but many different situations, where I just had to…. We just couldn’t capture what we needed unless I was totally free of myself. That, in a sense, was very liberating.”

Under the Skin opens this Friday, April 4. (Yes, Scarlett is going up against herself in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.)
