Johansson Waits For Waits Approval

Published on May 19, 2008 with No Comments

Actress Scarlett Johansson is desperate to launch her album of Tom Waits covers – because she’s anxious for the singer/songwriter’s approval.

Johansson, 23, will make her album debut with a compilation of The Downtown Train singer’s hits when her record Anywhere I Lay My Head is released in the US next week.

The album will feature vocals from David Bowie – who has praised her musical talents – but Johansson admits she has yet to receive approval from Waits himself.

She told the New York Post: “When I was presented with the idea, the ultimate goal was to not get chased down by Tom Waits and get my ass beat in a bar. I’ve heard from people who are friends with him that he’s very pleased with it. He’s been really supportive – not from the sidelines, but from a far, far distance.”

Johansson added: “It was constantly in the back of my mind that if we did something Tom Waits hated, he’d come at me with a hammer.”
