With her new movie "Hitchcock" set to hit theaters on November 23rd, Scarlett Johansson pitched in on promotions by covering the Winter 2012 "Girl Power Issue" of V magazine.

Wearing nothing but bright red lipstick, the 27-year-old actress posed under pouring water for the front page shot while opening up about filming the iconic "Hitchcock" shower scene and how "terrifying" her co-star Anthony Hopkins can be.

Highlights from Miss Johansson's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to V!

On filming the killer shower scene:
"We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet. They were concerned with modesty and all these things – but I don't care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either."

On getting into character:
"You have got to be brave, get into the shower, and face Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock jabbing you in the face with a 12-inch kitchen knife."

On taking her co-star seriously:
"As much as Anthony Hopkins is a pussycat, he's terrifying. Maybe I watched Silence of the Lambs too many times when I was a kid. Maybe I was having some flashbacks. So I didn't need too much preparation for the scene."
