She may be considered one of the most attractive actresses in showbiz right now, with a body to kill for, but Scarlett Johansson insists she's no different from countless other women out there when it comes to body image.
Soon back on the silver screen as Black Widow in Marvel's “The Avengers,” Scarlett had to put in lots of extra hours at the gym to get in the best shape possible, to be able to wear the leather catsuit she dreads so much, but which fans love.
Her perfect figure might tempt women to assume she has zero body image issues, but she insists it's not so.
“First of all, every woman has body worries. I’m not exempt from that,” the actress reveals in an interview cited by People
“But beyond part of the by-product of spending that much time in the gym is that you can fit into a catsuit,” she adds.
To get the body fans will see in “The Avengers,” Scarlett had to train like never before – not to mention go on a diet to make sure she got all the right nutrients.
“It hurts and it hurts and then suddenly it doesn’t hurt. And you’re getting it right, and it’s a great moment – you feel like you’ve accomplished something big,” the star says of shooting physically challenging action scenes.
Scarlett performed most of her own stunts in the film, mostly thanks to the help she got from stunt double Heidi Moneymaker, who helped her choreograph the most difficult moves.
The other day, in another promo interview for the same film, the stunning actress revealed that she was off the diet
and indulging again in her guilty sin, buffalo wings.
She even joked that, next time fans see her, she would be rolling on the red carpet instead of walking but, obviously, this will probably never happen because she's always led a healthy and acting life, catsuit or no catsuit.
