Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz star in Woody Allen’s new comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona and I don’t know the synopsis or anything, but Scarlett and Penelope have a make-out scene which is more than enough reason to go see it. And since the movie is opening soon, here’s Scarlett promoting it.
When they shot the scene, “there were like 60 crewmen [sitting around] eating salami sandwiches!” Johansson said at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere Monday. “It’s really the least sexy thing you can ever imagine!”
Besides, she added, “these characters are in love with each other! Oh my gosh! People are so conservative!”
Tsk tsk. Those are very poor promotional skills Scarlett. You should have said, “At first I wasn’t into it, but when our pouty lips touched, we felt a surge of excitement rush through our bodies and we just had to stick our tongues down each other’s throats. We couldn’t keep our hands off each other.” You would have had me at pouty. By the time you got to the tongue thing, my boner would have torn through my pants. Alas, you said something about being surrounded by a bunch of men and salami sandwiches, which isn’t that bad since there’s a joke in there somewhere. It’s just… I couldn’t find it and I don’t think I want to.
