Jonathan Glazer, who directed the movie Under the Skin, once comforted Scarlett Johansson after the film was initially booed. Glazer predicted that the movie would eventually gain popularity, and he was correct. The film has since developed a devoted following. The story revolves around Johansson’s character, an alien who must assimilate into human culture while also hunting men in Glasgow. Some scenes were created on the spot by Johansson using a hidden camera and unsuspecting members of the public. Johansson recalled feeling bewildered when the audience first reacted negatively to the film during its debut in 2014.

On the other hand, her director Jonathan, who was thrilled with the audience’s response, was overjoyed. While Johansson found the experience strange, Jonathan considered it the best reaction and most amazing sound he had ever heard.
