Scarlett Johansson cried after digging deep into a lost family tragedy

When Scarlett Johansson appeared on Finding Your Roots, the actress was brought to tears by what she discovered about her family.

Scarlett Johannson took part in the ancestry TV series Finding Your Roots in 2017, and she was brought to tears by what she learned about her great-grandfather’s brother during the Nazi occupation in Poland and their fates. Her grandfather had moved to New York and become a grocer.
Scarlett Johansson upset by family tragedy
Reading about her great-uncle’s circumstances, the Hollywood actress finds out that he lived in “a 1.3-square mile area sealed off from the rest of the city” where Jewish people were forced to live.

“Losing each other and everything. I mean, you hear stories about men and women and children all being separated and that was it,” said Scarlett,

“You know, [you would] never see the other person again. I can not imagine what you must be feeling just…hell. It must’ve been hell.”

According to the show, where her great-uncle lived “more than 400,000 Jews were crammed into the ghetto, living in squalid conditions with insufficient food rations. No more than 20,000 of them survived the Holocaust.”

Reading her family’s document, Scarlett Johansson says: “Wow, that’s sad” before becoming emotional.


“I mean, you really couldn’t imagine the horror. It’s just so crazy to imagine. … It’s crazy to imagine that Saul would be on the other side selling bananas on Ludlow Street,” the Hollywood star says.

“And how different it would be being in America at that time. The fate of one brother versus the other.”

Although she said she “didn’t expect to” she “felt more deeply connected” to that side of her family.

Bill Murray was “hard” to work with
The 39-year-old has also opened up about working with Bill Murray on the 2003 movie Lost in Translation and said that the experience was “hard” as it was long days and he “has a lot of energy.” However, she said that she was “so excited’ to work with him.

“It was such a strange space that we were in… we made that film in something crazy like 27 days. It was a hard shoot for me. I felt sort of out of the loop. I was 17 years old when I made that movie,” she said (per Far Out).



“He’s a comedian. He’s quirky. He had a lot of ups and downs. He had a lot of energy. He was really always on. And I was a 17-year-old, and I was more introspective.”

She said during the interview with DJ Howard Stern that she felt “intimidated” by his presence and found it “hard to relate to” the now 73-year-old.

“Yeah, it was hard for me. That’s what was kinda isolating about it – everybody was so deferential.” However the two celebrities “worked really well together.”

A return to the MCU?
After her incarnation of Black Widow died while sacrificing herself in Avengers Endgame, the actress was recently asked on the Today show if there was any chance of a return. She remained fairly тιԍнт-lipped on the matter saying: “Like a loophole? I feel like that’s kind of the end, right? Like can you come back? Could it be a vampire version of the character? Cause I’m here for that, like a zombie version, maybe.”
