Scarlett Johansson, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Poster

Hedi Slimane/Richard Rodgers Theatre

Stop with that look, Scarlett Johansson, you know what it does to us.

The sultry actress is giving off some major sex appeal in the latest black-and-white ad for the revival of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize–winning play Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, where the Hitchcock star (who is strutting darker locks) is seen lying on her side while playing with a string from her plunging slip. 

Johansson plays the character Maggie, who has been portrayed by greats such as Elizabeth Taylor, Jessica Lange, Kathleen Turner, Ashley Juddand Anika Noni Rose.

"I think her sexuality is often overplayed and over-appreciated. It's such an unimportant part of this story," she told Huffington Post. "I mean, it comes with the circumstance, of course, and the settling and the words—that's already there. There's no need to drape yourself all over the stage and roll around in a satin sheet."

There's no need, but we wouldn't mind if you do, Scarlett.
