Johansson confesses to having stage fright

London, Sep 6 (IANS) Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has confessed that she dreads heading out on musical tours because she suffers from stage fright.
The actress-singer has recorded a new album with music collaborator Pete Yorn, called “Break Up”, and she fears success will lead to a series of live shows she’d rather not think about, reports Star Magazine UK.

“I have terrible stage fright. I’ve never had to sing in front of a live audience, other than some back-up vocals,” she said.

“It seems incredibly revealing, very different from making a red-carpet appearance, where the glitz and glamour of movie stardom… can mask any sort of insecurity,” she added.

If pushed, Johansson says she might consider dressing up for a concert: “I’d dress like a character from The Dark Crystal.”

“Break Up” isn’t Johansson’s first musical effort - she released an album of Tom Waits songs, called “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, in 2008.
