At the Cannes Film Festival, Scarlett Johansson opens up about her dreams and connection to acting.
American actress Scarlett Johansson has a special relationship with her dreams. “I also use my dreams for my work,” said the 38-year-old on Wednesday in Cannes. She started doing this a few years ago when she met someone who worked with dream interpretation. “And it was exciting, I liked it.” She has been in the business for so long “that making a film and acting for a film is like an extension of my subconscious, my conscious mind.”
Johansson (“Lost in Translation”, “Lucy”, “Jojo Rabbit”) stars in director Wes Anderson’s new film. The work “Asteroid City” celebrated its premiere at the film festival in Cannes. At a press conference on Wednesday, Anderson asked Johansson if she was good at remembering her dreams during the day. Johansson said yes, saying: “I don’t write them down. I think if you practice remembering your dreams, you get better at it.”
Anderson (54) said: “Sometimes what I have in dreams is the solution to the whole script I’m working on. But most of the time it doesn’t work later on.”
