Seems Scarlett Johansson was quite happy to be involved in the Woody Allen film Match Point. Was it because he is a great director? No. Was it because of the talented cast? No. Was it because she's lazy? Yes. The Houston Chronicle reports that Johansson was eager to do the film, because Allen's movies are known for their heavy dialogue, rather than action scenes.
"He just really rarely requires that his actors go to the gym, which was a plus for me. And I didn't have to hang from a 50-foot building," Johansson said after earning a Golden Globe supporting actress nomination.
"I think Woody's dialogue helped me to bring out one of the better sides of my acting," she added. "The dialogue is so fantastic, that you think if I screw this up, I'll really be a putz."
Meanwhile, Scarlett is so over the whole paparazzi thing. So much so, that she has even called the police to get them off her back, reports FemaleFirst.
I've called the police several times and said, 'Listen, there are people following me in very big cars. They're surrounding me in these huge vehicles - vehicles nobody should be driving - and I feel unsafe.
But the police can do nothing It's not even the fact of being photographed: that's just an annoyance It's actually scary They're endangering people Not just me, but everybody else driving around me It's horrible.
In fact, the last time Johansson was chased by the paparazzi, she got into a car crash. Okay, maybe this time the argument has some merit.
