Scarlett Johansson at Iron Man 2 Premiere
Male: How is everything, all right?
Scarlett Johansson: Very well thank you.
Male: This is Katora, I do know that.
Scarlett Johansson: How do you know that?
Male: Because it’s a piece of art that you’re wearing, this is not a dress.
Scarlett Johansson: You do know a lot about fashion. You know I may have guessed that myself. It’s Armani PRIBAY but that was a pretty good guess.
Male: Well you were so convincing as the black widow here in an ass kicking sequence. How physically demanding was it to get ready for that one scene towards the end of the film where you just destroy everything on your site?
Scarlett Johansson: I just came in on the day and just thought of I’d wing it, it was painful but I have to say Tom Harper our stunt coordinator was incredible and he kind of oddly believed that I could do it and so I foolishly believed that I can do it and I did it.
Male: Now I know you love this fashion stuff we were joking before but it must be cool for you to go to work with Gwyneth Paltrow everyday and the conversations and you guys looking through the magazines to be a fly on that wall.
Scarlett Johansson: Wait, what makes you think that we sit around looking at magazines and talking fashion?
Male: Lets get to that because I know you do your philanthropy thing but come on, on the fashion tip Gwyneth is like a muse to all you guys in a way right?
Scarlett Johansson: She always knows how to rock the red carpet. If I had legs as gorgeous as those I would just be pant less.
Male: Let me just let that hang in there for a second. Speaking of Gwyneth Paltrows legs, she swears by Tracy Anderson, that’s like her work out guru, do you have somebody you just go to get in shape in your work out regimen. You have a Tracy Anderson in your life?
Scarlett Johansson: I have a couple of people that I work with and for this film I was trained by an incredible trainer named Bobby Strum. It was amazing and I could have never ever could have done it without him and I never would have showed up unless I knew he was going to be there, so I give him lots of props.
Male: Well very cool for you to join this franchise, when you sign on for Iron Man its not just about the movie, the toys the video games, all those things, do you geek out with all those stuff?
Scarlett Johansson: It’s kind of crazy, I saw my own action figure today which looks remarkably like me except it’s a better version of myself and I’m happy to be buried in the dirt and stuck up noses and float around on the bath tub and fighting my teenage turtles. I’ll take that occupation.
Male: Tell me what’s it like to choke out your director?
Scarlett Johansson: It’s a—I have to say that its more satisfying that I never could have imagined actually. It was actually fun, we kind of bonded over the whole experience and I did almost snap his final chord probably on the third day. So it just goes to show you that size does matter.
Male: Wow, there are so many great sound bites in this interview I hope we run this forever. Scarlett it was nice to see you, appreciate it, and take care.
