Scarlett Johansson has confessed that she was terrified when filming the iconic shower scene from Psycho for her forthcoming movie Hitchcock.
ScarJo appears as Janet Leigh in the movie, which also stars Sir Anthony Hopkins as legendary movie director Alfred Hitchcock and centres on the making of Psycho.
Speaking about the re-creation of that film's most famous scene, she told V Magazine: "You have got to be brave, get into the shower, and face Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock jabbing you in the face with a 12-inch kitchen knife.
"As much as Anthony Hopkins is a pussycat, he's terrifying. Maybe I watched Silence Of The Lambs too many times when I was a kid. Maybe I was having some flashbacks. So I didn't need too much preparation for the scene."
The movie is set for release on 8 February next year, although US audiences will get to see it later this month.
