Actress admits going make-up free was terrifying

Scarlett Johansson has admitted that she was nervous about going make-up free for Vanity Fair’s 20th anniversary edition.

Talking to Queen Latifah, the Captain America: The Winter Solider actress admitted to wanting to hide her face behind her hair.  She said: “It seemed so close, move that camera… I want to put my hair in my face and make it messy.”

However, The Avengers star wasn’t alone in going bare-faced as Labour Day actress Kate Winslet also took the plunge.

The photographs were taken by photographer Chuck Close who told Vanity Fair: “’I don’t do glamour shots, and they’re not airbrushed or whatever. So they can be, um…they can be rough.”

It’s not the first time the American actress has gone bare as she had to do a nude scene for her latest film, Under the Skin.

Talking about stripping off for camera, Scarlet said: “It really made me aware of when I was doing it, all the kinds of judgments and all of these things we place on ourselves. How self-conscious you can be about the way you look, your own vanity … It was really challenging but it was interesting.”
