Scarlett Johansson appears totally bare for the first time on-screen in her new movie “Under the Skin.” It’s about an alien who lures men to their deaths with her seeming innocence and sexual desire.
She draws them into her dark lair by disrobing.
Needless to say, the part called for an actress who was willing to pose in front of the cameras, and the 29-year-old actress agreed.
“I’m not a provocative person,” she said at a news conference in New York City last month. Indeed, she’s never posed that way before.
But after discussing the part with Director Jonathan Glazer, she said she was convinced that nudity served the story and wasn’t gratuitous.
“You assume its going to be a screenshot for someone. You kind of have to weigh the value of the risk that you’re taking,” she said.
She’s right about that. A screen shot of her from the movie is going viral on the Internet.
Her hair is done in a short black cut with bangs. It’s a wig, but that’s all she wears.
“The first time I saw it I was terrified, partly because of things like the nudity,” she said. “I didn’t know how that was going to be used. I didn’t know how naked my performance would be figuratively.”
“Under the Skin” opened in New York and L.A. on April 4, and began rolling out in select cities on April 11. You can probably catch it on pay-per-view.
Until then, check out her stunning photo, it’s worth the price of admission. Unfortunately, it’s too risque to show on this site, but you can see it here.
