Scarlett Johansson realised how unfit she was after she got injured on the set of her latest movie.
The stunning actress suffered from painful shin-splints while filming 'The Island' because her legs couldn't cope with the demanding physical work that was required of her.
The 20-year-old beauty, who had to shoot several scenes which required her to sprint for survival, told Britain's Empire magazine: "It's certainly been more demanding than 'Girl With A Pearl Earring'. Early on, I was coming home with shin-splints, saying: 'Okay, I've got to start working out more!'"
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed Scarlett is being lined up for the next 'Indiana Jones' movie after being handpicked by Tom Cruise.
The beautiful starlet is set to play Harrison Ford's sexy sidekick, after Cruise pleaded her case to legendary director Steven Spielberg on the set of 'War Of The Worlds'.
A source revealed at the time: "Steven was discussing how there are not many young actresses who can carry off such a strong role.
"He considered Natalie Portman but she's too associated with 'Star Wars'. So Tom suggested Scarlett who he has been working with on 'Mission Impossible 3' .She is said to be really interested, but nothing has been decided yet."
