It’s kind of hard not to stare at this V cover of Scarlett Johansson. We’ve already marveled at the photographs of her as Janet Leigh in Hitchcock, which is based on the making of Psycho. Having said that, you now know exactly what the cover photograph is about, as it’s so clearly a take on Psycho‘s legendary shower scene. She looks feral and gorgeous and scary all at once making this one of the most arresting covers we’ve seen on the magazine yet. This is also reminiscent of the W magazine goth cover Scarlett did, which was extreme in a similar way. Looks like magazines with initials agree with her! Of filming the actual scene, the actress said, “We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet. They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don’t care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either.” Yeah, we have a feeling plenty of people would be just fine with Scarlett showing up to work and jumping into a shower.
It’s also been interesting to see her without the makeup on in this photo published by Celebuzz of Scarlett’s new tattoo. It’s a horseshoe with the words “Lucky You” inked on her right ribacage. As in, lucky you to see Scarlett’s ribcage? She got it while visiting Paris a week ago, and it was done by the French tattoo artist Fuzi Uvtpk. What do you think of it? It feels a little … country to us, but hey, is she’s happy, we are too.
