Scarlett Johansson Plays Maggie In ‘Cat On A Hot Tin Roof’ [PHOTOS]

Stepping into a role immortalized by Elizabeth Taylor and Brenda Walsh, Scarlett Johansson did her best “Maggie The Cat” in preview performaces for Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.

The play, put on at Richard Rogers Theater in New York for 15 weeks only, is not Johansson’s first rodeo on Broadway; She won a Tony back 2010 for A View From The Bridge.

“I think her sexuality is often overplayed and over-appreciated,” Johansson recently told the Huffington Post about playing Maggie.  “It’s such an unimportant part of this story. 

“I mean, it comes with the circumstance, of course, and the settling 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.”

Playah please.  Johansson is a sex symbol, and she knows it.
