Johansson says her most odd and uncomfortable day on the movie was the time she was “riding Sebastian Stan like a mechanical bull.” “I felt so bad for him — and me! They hoisted me up on poor Sebastian’s shoulders and I was holding on with my legs wrapped around. It was horrible!” Or, as Evans calls out after overhearing her answer: “Sebastian’s best day at work!”
“It was terrible!” Johansson insists. “He was like ‘Ow my hair.’ I’m whipping around him and choking him out. It’s a pretty great Widow move. But that day shooting it, I was looking at the directors going: ‘I hate you…this better look good!’”
I once heard that women dress for women – not for men – and I think that has some truth to it. Men, what do they know? They don’t know if you gain or lose five pounds. They’re oblivious to those kinds of things. A lot of men will say “I like you just as you are.” And you’re like “But I’m bloated!” If they’re attracted to you, they’re attracted to you.
