Johansson eyes music festival debut

Scarlett Johansson would love to display her vocal talents at a music festival - if only she could combat her stage fright.

The actress released her debut album Anywhere I Lay My Head this week - and is so pleased with the disc of Tom Waits covers, she wants the chance to play them live.

But she'd have to conquer her stage fear first.

She says: "It would be sad to not get everybody (band members) together. Whether it's at a festival or somewhere that's kind of fun.

"(But) I have horrible stage fright, so it would have to be overcome. People approach me (about playing live) and my usual answer is, 'Ah, I'll think about that'.

"When I do think about it, I start to get really sweaty and uncomfortable and itchy around the neck."
