Throughout her career, Scarlett Johansson hasn’t avoided controversial moments. Given her popularity, it is only normal that she is constantly making headlines. Heck, she once had a dress that almost ruined her reputation in Hollywood given that it was created by Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife.


Credit to Johansson who addressed the news. Throughout her career, she hasn’t been afraid to attend to speculative news. That was also the case with a disturbing story alongside Benicio Del Toro at the Oscars.

We’re going to reveal what was said, and how Del Toro added fuel to the rumor. Ultimately, Johansson finally gave her thoughts years later on what really happened.




He said, “I kind of like, you know, I, well. I don’t know,” he said. “Let’s leave that to somebody’s imagination. Let’s not promote it. I’m sure it has happened before. It might not be the last time either.”

The rumor originated following the Oscars during the early 2000s. It took years for Johansson to finally discuss the matter. As expected, she revealed there was no truth to the absurd story.


“When I was younger it was more acceptable to write really nasty, slutty things about young actresses. That was a story that followed me for a long time. But I always thought that was outrageous. I was always thinking to myself, ‘That would be tough. It’s a very short period, the logistics of that seem so unappealing to me.”

She concludes, “I’m a person who’s terrified of being caught doing something I’m not supposed to be doing. So that made the story even that much more absurd to me.”

Scarlett Johansson was fed up about being asked what she was wearing under her Black Widow costume.
Credit to Johansson for even addressing the question all these years later. In terms of he relationship life, Johansson is loving her current circumstances.

Scarlett Johansson’s Relationship Life Completely Changed When She Met Colin Jost
It is well known by now, Scarlett Johansson had two failed relationships prior to Colin Jost. Scarlett ended her marriage with Ryan Reynolds after three years, while her relationship with Romain Dauriac also terminated three years later as well.



Scarlett remarried in 2020. She revealed the fundamental secret to the success of her marriage to Colin Jost alongside People.

“I didn’t know what I wanted or needed from somebody else. I never realized, ‘Oh, it’s really important for me, I need to be with a compᴀssionate person. That’s a fundamental characteristic that has to be there. And I think that understanding what those fundamental things are that you need in a partner is a must, I think — for longevity, anyway,” she said.

“I think identifying those things was a game-changer for me.”



Credit to Johansson for finding love, and learning from her past. However, the actress is still dealing with the rumor mill today, and given her popularity in Hollywood, that likely won’t come to an end any time soon.

Scarlett Johansson Is Still Shutting Down Rumors Today, Though This Time Regarding Her Career
Scarlett Johansson is still dealing with the rumor mill. This time, it consists of chatter regarding a return to the MCU as Black Widow. The rumors have been surfacing for quite a long time. Credit to Johansson for once again taking the time to answer the rumors, despite her fall out with the MCU.

She said, “I think it might be… I think it was the end, right? I don’t know how you come back from that. […] She did, she did. She pᴀssed. […] I would have… it would be a miracle. It would be real Marvel miracle. It would be a marvel. But, you know, who knows? Eh… I’m not sure.”

Scarlett hasn’t shut the door completely, but it certainly seems less likely. At the moment, the actress has a busy schedule with five upcoming projects. In addition, she appeared in North Star and Asteroid City in 2023. A role in the MCU doesn’t seem to be in the cards, at least for now.
