"I remember the scene in The Horse Whisperer when a Mack truck comes and hits me," Scarlett Johansson recalled. "Instead it was Bob [director Robert Redford] going, 'Aaand it comes to you. Closer, and closer, and closer.' And I'm thinking, 'This isn't scary. It's every middle aged woman's dream come true!'"
[Johansson was nominated for a Young Artist award for her work on The Horse Whisperer, and was subsequently inundated with offers to play "horseback champions with fatal diseases."]
