Scarlett Johansson – As You’ve Never Seen Her Before

Squealed in slight shock, but I love it. True, I definitely haven’t seen her like this before…

Scarlett Johansson isn’t the most likely person to portray Buster Keaton. But, then, such was the point of this portrait series, captured by Tim Walker and conceived over a boozy dinner in France last year. “We had just shot the Moët & Chandon ad campaign together,” recalls Johansson, “and we were sampling the product—excessively.”
