Scarlett Johansson has revealed the ‘logistics’ of the crime don’t appeal to her as she denies the Benicio del Toro rumour
Scarlett Johansson has firmly denied the “absurd” rumor that she once had sex with Benicio del Toro in an elevator.
The 37-year-old actress denied the rumor but didn’t mention her Avengers: Infinity War co-star.
Scarlett said on TheSkimm’s 9 to 5ish podcast on Tuesday: “That was a story that haunted me for a long time.
“But I always thought that was rude. I always thought to myself: “That would be hard. It’s a very short time, the logistics seem so unattractive to me.”
She continued, “I’m a person who’s afraid of being caught doing something I shouldn’t be doing. That made the story even more absurd to me.”
The rumor is said to have originated years earlier when Benicio, 55, reacted shyly when questioned about the allegation.
After repeating the question posed by the interviewer, he said, “I kind of like it, you know, I, well. I do not know. Let’s leave that to someone’s imagination. Let’s not promote it. I’m sure it happened before. It might not be the last time either.”
Scarlett is currently promoting her eco-conscious skincare company called The Outset.
Last month, the actress opened up about how fixing a blemish made her “more confident.”
Speaking to InStyle magazine, she described how her “problem skin” prompted her to fix the beauty world.
She told the publication she had an epiphany when she realized she was putting a lot of harmful things on her face — which were “harmful to me and the planet.”
That led to her creating The Out, focusing on the motto – less is more.
She said: “The beginning means a fresh start, which feels more relevant than ever at a time when we’re all starting over and hitting the reset button.
“It has taken us years to build a brand fueled by quality and purpose and I am thrilled to finally be able to share The Outset with the world.
“It’s an exciting start for me too.”
And she loves how hospitable the industry is.
Speaking on the podcast, she admitted, “It’s actually quite transparent and welcoming and warm and welcoming … And people have a lot of respect for one another. It’s not cutthroat at all. Not in the way I imagined.”
