Joaquin Phoenix was ‘so upset’ by Scarlett Johansson scene


Joaquin Phoenix was ‘so upset’ by Scarlett Johansson scene


The Hollywood actress, Scarlett Johansson, has shared that Joaquin Phoenix was so uncomfortable during the filming of her fake 0rgasm scene for the movie Her that he had to leave the set.

The 2014 movie Her follows the story of a man named Theodore Twombly, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who falls in love with Samantha, an artificially intelligent virtual assistant personified through a female voice, played by Scarlett Johansson.

During her appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, Johansson, aged 37, spoke about the scene in the film, where her character was required to record herself having an 0rgasm.

She revealed that Phoenix was so uncomfortable that he had to leave the set.

“We tried to get through one take, and he was, like, losing it,” Johansson said.

“I was fine. Joaquin was not – he was so upset about it.


“He left the studio, and now I’m in this box by myself, and I’m like, ‘I can’t do it alone.

“I need him to come back.’ He needed a break; he took a break, and he came back in.”
Johansson also revealed her experience of being “hypersexualised” in the earlier years of her career.

She reflected on her experience of being “objectified” in Hollywood.

“I kind of became objectified and pigeonholed in this way where I felt like I wasn’t getting offers for work for things that I wanted to do,” she said.

But she also noted that things have changed, and while the #MeToo movement has seen improvement in working conditions for young women actors, there is still a lot of work to be done.

She said: “I’ve come to this realisation that it’s important to understand progress and change when it’s really meaningful – it takes two steps forward and two steps back, and then it gets better and then it gets worse.”

During the podcast, Johansson also talked about the challenges of recording a fake 0rgasm, saying, “You don’t want to hear your voice ever.

“You definitely don’t want to hear what you sound like having an 0rgasm.

“Ew. It’s so gross. It was so bizarre.”

Johansson has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is an A-list actress in Hollywood.

She has received critical acclaim for her performances in movies like Lost in Translation, Her and Marriage Story.

The actress also shared her experience of getting over the “imposter syndrome” feeling, which is common among actors.

She said, “I think that’s a natural feeling for people that are in creative fields.

“There’s always a sense of imposter syndrome.

“But I think the more you work and the more you put yourself out there, the more you realise that you’re here for a reason.”

Johansson also talked about her work with various charities, including Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter.

She has been an active supporter of these organisations and has been vocal about her support for women’s rights and racial equality.

Regarding her future plans, Johansson will reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow in the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Widow, which is scheduled to release in July 2021.

She has also been cast in the upcoming Wes Anderson film, The French Dispatch, and will voice a character in the upcoming animated movie, Sing 2.

Johansson has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards and two Academy Awards, and has won a Tony Award for her work on Broadway.

In 2018, she was the highest-paid actress in the world, according to Forbes.

Johansson has acted in movies for over two decades now and has been a part of various critically acclaimed movies in Hollywood.
