Scarlett Johansson - Cat On A Hit Tin Roof Producers Lure In The Public With ‘Scarlett Johansson In Sexy Slip’ Poster

Scarlett Johansson is A Serious Actress. We know this, because she has awards on her mantelpiece for her serious acting. She’s a revered screen star and has also been held in high acclaim for her work on the stage, winning a Tony Award in 2012 for her performance in A View From The Bridge. Regardless of this, much of the attention surrounding her new play, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, which opens on January 17, 2013, has focused on the smouldering poster campaign (pubished here by The Daily Mail) that has been used to promote the Broadway play.

‘Scarlett Johansson in a sexy, plunging slip’ you say? Well, let’s just get ourselves down to the theatre then. That, of course, is the response that is required of the public, with the creation of the black and white posters. And by and large, that’s been the response that most media outlets have provided. That’s despite the actress’ recent assertions that the sexuality of her character is over-played. She recently told Associated Press that Maggie’s sexuality “is often overplayed and over-appreciated. It’s such an unimportant part of this story,” she explained during morning rehearsals recently. “I mean, it comes with the circumstance, of course, and the setting and the words – that's already there. There's no need to drape yourself all over the stage and roll around in a satin sheet.”

Fair enough, but if you wouldn’t mind just draping yourself in a sexy slip and posing for these promo shots, so we can get the crowds in… thanks, darling.
