“Oh my god. It’s such a distraction,” she quipped to Vogue Australia.
“I was like, guys, you’ve made a huge mistake getting him to do this, because everyone is going to forget everything that happened [in the film] until this point.”
She added: “Chris is going to come onto the screen, and his body is outrageous, it’s unbelievable, like a crazy, crazy thing to look at, and his shirt’s completely unbuttoned.
“No-one on set could pay attention to anything else: it was so shocking, not in a sexual way at all, just, like, scientifically, how is it possible to look like that? Crazy!
“Then he would eat a bowl of Smarties and you’re like: ‘You’re an a**hole, f**k you!’
“I don’t eat anything sweet: I eat green things for three months in order to fit into a pair of jeans.
“And he eats whatever the f**k he wants and looks like he was literally chiselled out of marble – it’s insane.”
Bad Times At The El Royale is one of two fairly tense movies Johnson has in the pipeline between now and the end of the year.
The other is the arthouse horror Suspiria; due for release in November after causing quite a stir in early screenings.
In fact early reviews for it have been decidedly mixed, with some even allegedly walking out well before the end credits.
“It’s a true work of art on [director Luca Guadagnino’s] part,” the star recently told the Inquirer.
“I am thrilled to be a part of it. Of course, it’s nice to be involved in a film where everybody leaves the theatre happy, but then, do they go home and talk about it?”
She continued: “It’s a privilege to be involved in a film where people want to argue about what’s happening, because it’s really time for art to express the things that we need to express.
“People are ready for it. It’s an interesting moment, especially in cinema.
“And the fact that it’s a film with a cast of 40 women, but it is still controversial—perhaps we do need to focus on other things?”
