So, do you remember when Isaac Mizrahi groped Scarlett Johansson's breast at the Golden Globes? Well, it seems that Scarlett Johansson wasn't exactly happy about the whole incident. And even though it's nearly two months later, Scarlett is finally saying something about the incident to the LA Times.
"It was definitely in poor taste," said Johansson, speaking about her reaction publicly for the first time.
"I'd been prepping for two hours with hair and makeup and getting dressed. And the first interview I do, someone who I have never met before fondles me for his own satisfaction."
"Mostly, I was thinking, 'Oh, my god. This is happening on live TV.' I don't think he got a huge thrill out it. He was making some shocking show or whatever for his channel and wanted to be different and racy and all of those things," she said.
"When it happened, I think I actually said, 'What the heck is going on?' At the same time, people made a huge deal out of something that, in the moment, was not as exciting as it seemed afterward."
"I'm not mad at him," she said. "I think he's a guy that's starting his TV career and he's making a bit of an exciting moment for himself. I can't be angry at him. Surely he is thrilled with the press and the attention it's getting."
Well, it's good to know that she can forgive and forget. Though I guess she hasn't really forgotten yet. It definitely made for some great television, and great blogging for that matter. And just in case you need a little jog of the old memory machine, here's that video once again.
And here are a some more pictures of Scarlett Johansson in that amazing red dress, that haven't been posted here yet. More pictures after the jump.
