Hitchcock Heroine: Scarlett Johansson covers V Magazine

Photographed and interviewed by Jean-Paul Goude, actress Scarlett Johansson gives her best impression of actress Janet Leigh in the movie Psycho (1960) for her V Magazine's winter 2012/13 cover.

In V Magazine's Girl Power Issue, Johansson gives details about her upcoming movie Hitchcock (out November 23rd) and her co-star actor Anthony Hopkins -- she said he's gentle yet terrifying.

Hitchcock is a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock (played by Anthony Hopkins) and his wife/partner Alma Reville (played by Helen Mirren). The film takes place during the making of Hitchcock's seminal movie Psycho. Johansson plays Janet Leigh in this Sacha Gervasi directed featured film.

On filming the killer shower scene:

"We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet. They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don't care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either."

On getting into character:

"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."

On taking her co-star seriously:

"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."
