Scarlett Johansson Talks "Under the Skin"

Posted Thursday April 3, 2014 5:30 PM GMT

Revealing her experiences and struggles while filming her latest sci-fi endeavor, Scarlett Johansson went into several interviews to talk all about "Under the Skin."

Of her scenes shot with unsuspecting citizens, who signed contracts after the cameras stopped rolling, the 29-year-old said, "I had never experienced anything like that, shooting a film that was challenging in ways I never could have predicted."

Saying that she had to overcome her own self-consciousness in order to complete her work on "Under the Skin," the "Captain America" beauty continued, "It was a huge milestone for me creatively, I felt much stronger as an actor coming out of production. I felt like I could really be anything."

"She never wavered," added director Jonathon Glazer. "And I put her in some uncompromising situations." But Johansson said she was also given the tools she needed to create a convincing Black Widow in her recent superhero flicks, thanks to "Under the Skin."

Scarlett also spoke at a press conference in New York about those uncompromising situations on the set of the sci-fi horror, saying, "The first time I saw it I was terrified, partly because of things like the nudity. I didn't know how that was going to be used. I didn't know how naked my performance would be figuratively."

However, thanks to stunning photography and imagery, Scarlett added, "The terror that I had going in [watching it] quickly faded when I became immersed in the visual."

"Under the Skin" hits theaters tomorrow (April 4), so get ready for an exclusive look at the human condition through the eyes of a dark, twisted alien being!
