Though she always looks flawless in every outfit we see her in, Scarlett Johansson explained that she’s just like every other woman when it comes to body insecurities.
In an interview with ITV1′s Daybreak morning show in the U.K. earlier this week (April 24), the blonde beauty spoke about her intense workouts to get into her body hugging Black Widow cat suit in “The Avengers,” saying, “First of all, every woman has body worries. I’m not exempt from that, but beyond part of the by-product of spending that much time in the gym is that you can fit into a cat suit.
Although the payoff of fitting into the sexy outfit is reason enough to work out, Johansson explained that the physical activity also helped her in performing her own stunts in the action-packed new film.
The 27-year-old actress said that working with stunt-double Heidi Moneymaker was “a lot of training and dedication,” but it all paid off in the end, expanding, “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 Joss Whedon directed comic book-based film also stars Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgard, Cobie Smulders and Samuel L. Jackson.
While “The Avengers” is set to release on May 4.
