London, March 5 (ANI): Scarlett Johansson is a bundle of nerves thinking about her role as a gladiatrix in her new film, since she doubts fitting the mould of a warrior woman.

The actress revealed that even though she has previously undergone weapon training for her other roles, she is yet to feel confident about portraying a murderous girl for Amazon.

“I think I”m supposed to be a gladiatrix. These film guys are crazy about gladiatrixes, the Daily Express quoted her as saying,

But do I fit the mould? I”m a Danish/Jewish girl from New York.

“I”ve done weapons training. I”ve fired all kinds of guns; 9mm semi-automatics, machine guns, shotguns. I”ve jumped off a 60-foot building. I learnt to ride for The Horse Whisperer. But I”ve never done a full-on action role.

“I guess I”m still waiting for my Cirque du Soleil moment. It would be fun,” she added. (ANI)
