Scarlett Johansson has revealed that her dream of making an appearance on Broadway will have to be put on hold, as she suffers from ‘crippling’ stage fright.

Surprisingly Johansson, 24, had happily appeared in numerous plays as a child actress, but now she admits that she has to overcome the phobia of performing live first before she gets on stage. “I would love to work on Broadway, but I don’t know that it would manifest itself in musical theatre... I have terrible stage fright that I’d have to get over,” the Daily Star quoted her as telling America’s Glamour magazine.

“[It is] crippling. It came on when I was a teenager, and I think it somehow sticks with you,” she added.
