Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson

Liev Schreiber and Scarlett Johansson disgusted theatregoers during a recent performance of their Broadway show A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE after the actor accidentally spit mucus in his co-star's face.

And then this one asteroid of a loogie (landed on my forehead) made that flicking sound

The pair are currently appearing in the Arthur Miller play, in which Johansson portrays a 17-year-old girl in 1950s New York with Schreiber as her uncle.

And a heated scene became all too real when Schreiber's saliva hit Johansson on the forehead.

She says, "We're really close to one another and we have these scenes where he's getting really upset and there's a lot of rage. 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".

But Johansson refused to stop the show after the sticky mishap, and continued to perform with saliva dripping down her face.

She adds, "Any normal person would wipe it away but I felt this show must go on... he saw it, I saw it. It was awful".

Johansson and Schreiber's limited run is scheduled to end on 4 April (10).
