Scarlett Johansson and the new meeting with Bill Murray: “It was a little therapeutic”

Soon in Asteroid City Of Wes Anderson (from 23 June in the hall, the usual presence of Bill Murray is not confirmed) Scarlett Johansson she recounted how she stumbled upon her partner by pure chance some time ago Lost In Translation (2003), just Bill. It’s a delicate and affectionate episode, in a rather black period for Murray, ousted from a set for “inappropriate behavior” and accused by many of having proved intractable in his career. Scarlett, however, has woven a little smiling memory.

I hadn’t seen him in like ten years, a long time. I walk into a bar with my ex-boyfriend from a long time ago… e there was only one person. It was Bill Murray. He was so curious. I entered, I saw him sitting there, without anyone else, I went: “My God!” (…) I decided: “Okay, now I have to understand what is being said.” It was like a dream he too was surprised. To be honest, it’s been a while therapeutic. We talked about that period. (…) I think that film was tough for him too, because there were several things at stake, in his family and in his marriage. Even he admitted that he didn’t understand what we were doing in Tokyo during those weeks. In my opinion, his way of dealing with everything was a bit bipolar. I don’t know, but we had a cathartic experience in that absurd bar.
