Actress Scarlett Johansson performed her own stunt fall while filming her latest movie in Glasgow, the Daily Mail is reporting. Several images of the Avengers co-star striding down the street before falling flat on her face have started making the rounds online. However, do not be alarmed; the Black Widow is reportedly a-okay.
The actress is currently braving the cold winds of Scotland to film director Jonathan Glazer’s science fiction movie Under the Skin, which is based upon author Michel Faber’s novel. Johansson stars as “an alien on Earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman,” the press release explained. “She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality.”
In the aforementioned images, Scarlett Johansson can be see falling to the ground while taking a stroll down a sidewalk in Glasgow. According to The Sun, this her character’s ploy to get men to rush to her assistance at which point she can seduce them and harvest their body parts. The scheme apparently worked; on-lookers who weren’t aware that a movie was being made soon rushed to her assistance. Their reactions to the actress’ tumble will reportedly be used in the completed film.
Before fans will have an opportunity to witness the Lost in Translation star face plant in her new sci-fi movie, Scarlett Johansson can be see portraying Janet Leigh in Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock. The film, which finds Anthony Hopkins tackling the role of the legendary filmmaker, explores the struggles Alfred Hitchcock faced while filming his classic thriller Psycho. The picture is slated for release in the US on November 23.
Johansson is also rumored to reprise her role in no less than two additional Marvel movies. The actress is slated to appear in both Captain America: The Winter Soldier in 2014 and Joss Whedon’s The Avengers 2 in 2015.
