Taking time to greet awaiting fans , Scarlett Johansson left the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where she's starring in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," in New York City on Friday (December 28).

The "Avengers" actress was bundled up for the chilly Big Apple weather in a black puffy coat, black winter, hat, and blue jeans.

After its first seven preview performances, the revival is off to a good start, grossing $843,215 - more than any of the last three Broadway revivals of the play made in a week.

However, fans hoping for a super seductive Maggie the Cat might be disappointed. The 28-year-old actress says, "I think her sexuality is often overplayed and over-appreciated. It’s such an unimportant part of this story. I mean, it comes with the circumstance, of course, and the settling and the words — that’s already there. There’s no need to drape yourself all over the stage and roll around in a satin sheet.”
