Scarlett Johansson got her name embroiled in a weird controversy after calling out her Broadway co-star Liev Schreiber for spitting on her face. As awkward as it sounds, the Black Widow fame publicly spoke about this incident which didn’t draw a pleasant reaction from the other end. Schreiber who has been seen in movies like X-Men: Origins and Salt couldn’t take the incident lightly and threatened to expose the Avengers star.
The incident which Scarlett Johansson revealed took place when the actress was seen with Liev Schreiber in the play A View From The Bridge. The Tony Award winner felt the accusations by Johansson as too exaggerated and demeaning for him.

What happened between Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber?
While Scarlett Johansson was performing the 2010 play with Liev Schreiber, an incident occurred during an argument scene. Now although the situation didn’t seem so serious initially, things turned sour as the Fading Gigolo actor couldn’t agree to the statements passed by the Jojo Rabbit actress.
The whole story started when Johansson during an interview shared the whole story of the spitting incident. The 38-year-old actress shared that while filming an argument scene, she felt a huge-sized loogie on her forehead.
“A couple of weeks ago we were doing this scene. He’s right here (in my face) and he’s screaming at me and all of a sudden – it happened almost in slow motion – I saw it. These pearls of spittle. And then this one asteroid of a loogie (landed on my forehead) made that flicking sound.”
The actress then revealed that she didn’t let that incident present any interruption to the performance. So they went on with the sequence and later the mother-to-two described the experience as awful. But a similar reaction wasn’t be seen from Schreiber who simply felt humiliated by that revelation and claimed it to be extremely bloated. The Emmy nominee showed no mercy and even went on to expose her if she continued her behavior.
“If I went around on national television advertising the things she does on stage and in the privacy of her dressing room she wouldn’t be so happy about it. So I think she ought to think twice before she lays into me.”
