Scarlett Johansson is glad her much talked about The Avengers catsuit wasn't made out of "patent leather".
The stunning star has been showing off her finely honed curves in a tight-fitting costume as Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow in the Marvel superhero movie. There has been much buzz surrounding Scarlett's figure-hugging attire in the film and the actress has joked about its one saving grace.
"When you're training that much to fight and training that much for strength, the result is, you can fit in a catsuit! When you've had months and months of training, you feel pretty confident I suppose," she told British magazine Closer.
"It was comfortable. Everybody talks about it being so unbelievably revealing, but at least it wasn't made out of patent leather!"
Scarlett's role in The Avengers is a high-octane one. The 27-year-old star has joked that her "sexy" status goes out of the window when it comes to action-packed scenes.
"I totally lose control of my face! When you see a pack of giant 6ft. 7ins. stuntmen coming after you with huge staffs, you're just like, 'Argh!'" she exclaimed.
"There's nothing worse than when you see an action movie and there's a woman who has her lips blown out and her hair in a wind machine!
"I never think about my characters as being sexy. It's not as if I actively look for sexy roles, it's not a requirement that my character be pretty and delicate."
