Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Scarlett Johansson as Maggie the Cat is supposed to be the main sex symbol in the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams's Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. But she's got her eye on costar Ben Walker – in particular, his butt.
"That is really one of the brighter points of my life," the actress, 28, tells Broadway.com.
Walker, 30, playing Maggie's husband Brick, spends a large chunk of the play wearing nothing but a towel, and sometimes (with his back to the crowd) not even that, giving Johansson – and the audience – an eyeful.
"I have asked Ben at times, when I was having a more difficult day, to just leave it out there for a couple more moments, just to brighten my day a little bit," she says. "I think it adds a little bit of hope in an otherwise dismal situation."
