A tale I heard
Actor Scarlett Johansson on working on projects that divide opinion:
"I would way rather not have middle ground. I would way rather fail in someone's eyes than be that sort of tepid… that's the worst. I remember going to see Eyes Wide Shut and I saw it like three times in the theatre and the first time I saw it, I hated it. I had a visceral reaction to it I hated it so much. And then I was like, I have to see that movie again, I hated it so much. And then I loved it. I think in some ways I hated the emotional experience, it's like a visceral reaction. There's passion behind it. I can't ever totally fault a film that I absolutely hate."
