The things that come out of your mouth, ScarJo.
Scarlett Johansson sat down with Vanity Fair to discuss her recent nude photo hacking scandal and her ability to look great naked.
“I know my best angles,” she said. “They were sent to my husband,” now ex-husband Ryan Reynolds. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno … Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
But the really weird thing that the interview unearthed was Johansson’s revelation about how she and Woody Allen, who cast her in “Match Point,” “Scoop,” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” became close: hypochondria and a penchant for Purell.
“He shakes a lot of hands,” Johansson said. “I’ll squirt some [Purell] in my hand and then squirt in his.”
“The only reason why Woody and I are still friends is because I’ve diagnosed all kinds of his skin tags, lesions, ailments,” she added. “I’ve prescribed things for Woody that he’s then asked his doctor to prescribe for him.”
After years of this, apparently Allen’s ready for another actress/nurse friend.
“I have every intention of working with her again, but I just didn’t think it was a great idea for either one of us to work together too intensely, picture after picture,” he told Vanity Fair. “I didn’t want her to be burdened by, ‘Oh, she’s in all the Woody Allen pictures, it’s so predictable,’ and she’s my new muse, and all that silliness.”
Johansson doesn’t see what the big deal is.
“I don’t think anything’s played out,” she said. “I’m waiting for him to write my ‘Citizen Kane.’”
In the meantime, she’s shooting “Under the Skin,” in which she plays an alien sex predator who harvests human body parts.
