Sick Scarlett Johansson pulls out of Broadway preview performance


Scarlett Johansson pulled out of a preview performance of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" over the weekend due to illness.

Bing: Katie Holmes' Broadway play closing early

The actress is tackling the role made famous by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1958 film adaptation of Tennessee Williams' acclaimed play, and the production is set to officially open on Broadway on January 13.

Preview shows began last month, but audiences on Sunday missed out on seeing Johansson's turn as Maggie the Cat after she called in sick with flu. A representative for the actress tells the New York Daily News, "Yes, she missed her performance on Sunday due to the flu -- she made it through both performances on Saturday despite being sick."

her politics I think is the underlying source of her illness , She has such talent , but I can't watch her anymore , as far as I'm concerned she has sold herself short , I would have wished that someone who truely cared abourt her career and talent would have guided her , I think that Redford should guide her career but should avoid any contact with her to avoid temptation ,
