“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,” the Mirror quoted Scarlett Johansson as telling V Magazine. “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 said.
Johansson talked about her body and sexuality, explaining that 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,” she said. She believes she was inspired by certain movies she saw when she 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,” she added.
