"Behind the mask" of the world's great actors

Text size Aa Aa

“Behind The Mask” is a new exhibition featuring portraits of 100 top actors who have won or been nominated for a BAFTA (British Academy Film Awards) since 1954.

Among the list of cinema stars are Keira Knightley and Scarlett Johansson. Photographer Andy Gotts had a secret weapon for the photo shoot with Johansson.

“I made her drink champagne very quickly – a couple of glasses, and I said ‘OK, I want you to pull 20 of your best faces.’ She started pulling all these faces and half way through I started barking things at her, saying ‘do this, do that,’ and she relished it and she was pulling faces and messing about and laughing. So I was very, very fortunate to get her on a really good day and I got some great shots,”

Other A-listers included in the exhibition are Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Kevin Spacey and George Clooney.

“Behind the Mask” is showing at London’s Somerset House until February 7th.
