Scarlett is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Time Out New York. I don’t have access to this where I live so if there is anyone willing to donate scans, we’d greatly appreciate it. A preview of the cover and interview are below.
Scarlett, a lot of movie actors who try theater get destroyed by critics. Are you concerned about being raked over the coals?
Johansson: The only thing that worries me about that is that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to work again. I’ve been praised, criticized and dragged through the dirt for 17 years. It would be heartbreaking, but what else can I do? Not go there?
Schreiber: That is really the heart of it. Once you get past all the hurt feelings and the ego, the truth is you just want to keep working.
Johansson: What else do we have? What, would we open a bakery? [Laughs]
Schreiber: It’s like the silly actor games: If you’re not prepared to make a complete jackass of yourself, in front of not only the audience but also the actors, then you’re not worth the money they paid to get into the theater.
