Johansson appears on the The Late Show to promote her upcoming movie Avengers: Age Of Ultron. She talks about lover for Letterman and her first appearance on his show as a child.
Dave, I have to say, I am so incredibly honored to be on one of your very last shows…The first time I was on this show I was 13-years old, it was 1998 and I was so, so nervous, because for me -- and still for me -- coming on this show is like you’ve made it when you’re on Dave Letterman. That’s really the truth.
Johansson gives an interview to Harper’s Bazaar Magazine about her role in the film Under The Skin.
I think the film that we made is so different from the book that it probably wouldn’t have made any difference at all if I had read it. And I didn’t want to have any kind of impression of that at all because I had to work from the script. Over a few years that Jonathan Glazer and I were having these conversations and the core of the story became stronger and the purpose was clearer in his mind and the idea of the two of us collaborating became more of a reality. I really wanted to work with Jonathan Glazer and I would give that kind of commitment anyway if I really wanted to work with somebody. When I know I want to do something and I want it, I’ll get it or I’ll at least try. But I think part of that comes from having spent 20 years in the industry and still being that kid that wants the part. To me, I always feel like that if it doesn’t work out and I don’t get the part it’s because the director and I had different ideas and that makes sense to me. Under The Skin was always open and I didn’t have to convince Jonathan.
