Scarlett Johansson Had Three Stunt Doubles To Hide Pregnancy In Avengers
The actress gave director Joss Whedon a small problem when it came to wearing her skin-tight bodysuit on set...
Though she won't look it in the movie, Scarlett Johnasson got pregnant just before filming began for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
This meant the Hollywood starlet, who is expecting her first chid with fiancé Romain Dauriac, had three stunt doubles for the action scenes.
"She's not going to spend the whole movie carrying groceries," director Joss Whedon, 50, told Entertainment Weekly'. "We didn't trim any scenes. We're like, 'We'll make it work.'"
The stand-ins for ScarJo wore dotted maps on their faces, which will allow Johanssons face to be grafted on in post-production.
"It's always funny," says Evans, who recently worked with the actress on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "You walk by, 'Hey, Scarlett—oh, weird. You're not Scarlett at all. Sorry.' A lot of fake Scarletts around."
The film plays host to a seriously all-star cast, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson and Elizabeth Olsen, to name but a few.
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK April 2015.
