When I saw “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” I decided that I wanted to be the Black Widow.
Five months later I’m suddenly in fencing, kickboxing, and zumba classes, which are more gym/athletic classes than I’ve taken in nearly five years. And exercising for me is like killing a little piece of my soul, but every time a muscle aches I think “But I will someday be a badass like Natasha. Without doing the crazy Red Room shit.”
"Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don’t understand it, why is it taking so long for this? This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies. Lucy, didn’t it beat Hercules by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she’s a great actress. Under the Skin is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson? To me, it’s a no-brainer. You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in a superhero movie!"
Watching this (and fearing broken ankles with each loop) I can’t helping thinking about that old quote Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, except backwards and in high heels.
But no, if you watch closely you’ll see she doesn’t even step on the last chair. That means she had to trust that fucker to lift her gently to the ground while he was spinning down onto that chair. That takes major guts. I’d be pissing myself and fearing a broken neck if I were in her place. Kudos to her.
I can’t stop watching this.
