The gorgeous actress stars in the remake of the 1971 psychological thriller and she tells us she “was in a constant state of anxiety” during shooting!

Kate Bosworth‘s new flick Straw Dogs is really scary — so it’s no wonder why it was intense to film! HollywoodLife.com got a chance to see the upcoming film at the NYC premiere of the film hosted by the Cinema Society and we spoke to Kate about what it was like play a woman who gets stalked and raped by her ex-boyfriend played by Alexander Skarsgård.  

“I felt like I wan in a constant state of anxiety,” she tells HollywoodLife.com. “Of course it’s a brilliant ritual just to constantly make sure the bar is raised and go to work every day and give it your all. The last three weeks of the film [shooting the rape scene] were incredibly demanding both emotionally and physically and we all really hunkered down,” she explained. “To stay in your emotional head space for something like this, it’s almost like training for a marathon. It’s really quite an intense experience. ”

The film is the remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 film of the same name — and we must say director Rod Lurie definitely did the film’s original justice. In case you forgot, Halloween is just next month and this is the perfect film to kick off the slew of horror flicks that will follow.

Check out Straw Dogs when it hits theaters Sept. 16!
