The 37-year-old former celebrity shared a personal story on TheSkimm’s 9 to 5ish podcast, which continued to stay with her for a long time. She expressed her thoughts on the matter, saying that she found it outrageous and challenging to go through. She couldn’t imagine dealing with the short time frame and all the logistical challenges that come with it.

No more game-playing: Scarlett Johansson, a two-time Oscar nominee, has put an end to an old rumor about her alleged sexual encounter with Avengers co-star Benicio del Toro in an elevator. She has officially denied the rumor.

During TheSkimm’s 9 to 5ish podcast, which streams every Tuesday at 9pm EST, a former child star who is now 37 years old opened up about a longstanding rumor that had followed them for quite some time. The individual expressed outrage over the rumor and stated that they have always been terrified of getting caught doing something that they are not supposed to be doing. The rumor in question involves an elevator encounter between the former child star and Scarlett Johansson at Chateau Marmont, which was reportedly first mentioned in an Esquire interview where the 55-year-old Oscar winner acted coy. When asked about the alleged encounter, the Oscar winner did not confirm or deny it and instead suggested that people should use their imagination.

According to Scarlett, she had reservations about the idea from the start. “I always thought to myself, ‘That would be difficult. It’s a very short period, and the logistics of that don’t appeal to me,'” she revealed on March 16th. As someone who is afraid of getting caught doing something she shouldn’t, the entire concept seemed even more ridiculous.

Scarlett Johansson spoke highly of the beauty industry while promoting her newly founded eco-conscious skincare company, The Outset. She co-founded the brand earlier this year with former beauty and fashion executive Kate Foster Lengyel. Johansson expressed her surprise at how welcoming and transparent the industry has been to her. She found it warm, inviting, and respectful, unlike the cutthroat environment she had anticipated.

Starting on April 26th, customers can purchase The Outset night cream at Sephora stores, with the added bonus of 10% of sales (up to $25K) being donated to aid areas devastated by wildfires in California. Additionally, Scarlett Johansson, a New Yorker, will be co-starring and serving as an executive producer alongside Chris Evans in Jason Bateman’s space race film, Project Artemis, which secured a $100 million distribution deal with AppleTV+. Johansson has also reunited with her Lost in Translation co-star Bill Murray for Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City, which completed filming on November 13th.

Scarlett is thrilled to announce that she will be serving as both the executive producer and co-star alongside Chris Evans, her Avengers co-star, in the upcoming space race film Project Artemis directed by Jason Bateman. The film has secured a $100 million distribution deal with AppleTV+, adding to the excitement.

Johansson recently finished filming Wes Anderson’s new romantic comedy, Asteroid City, in Europe.
