Scarlett Johansson was once questioned in love with Benicio del Toro – the actor who played “Thor: The Dark World” – in 2005.
On the podcast 9 to 5ish with theSkimm, Scarlett Johansson said she haunted rumors of intimacy with Benicio del Toro in the elevator. The person who spread the rumors was called a “liar”.
Johansson understood that when she entered showbiz, she was forced to accept the weaving of tabloids. However, she is still upset because it is easy for the public to believe that young actors, especially women, are often lazy and lewd. She insisted that was not true.
“The rumor stuck with me for a long time, it was outrageous. I always think to myself: I’m in trouble. The gossip could not appeal to me. I’m the type of person who gets scared when caught doing something they shouldn’t. Therefore, the rumor becomes even more absurd to me”, the Black Widow star shared.

According to Fox News, in 2005, the media spread rumors that Johansson and Puerto Rican actor Benicio del Toro were wrapped in the elevator of the Chateau Marmont hotel, Los Angeles.
Johansson responded: “If you’ve ever stood in that elevator, you know that you can only stand, nothing else. Besides, I don’t like working privately in public.”
However, Benicio del Toro does not completely deny this. He hesitated in the interview with Esquire: “Will I have sex with Scarlett after the show? You know, I like that kind of thing. I don’t know, let people speculate.”
Currently, Johansson lives happily with Colin Jost. The actress gave birth to the Saturday Night Live star in August 2021. Deadline confirmed she is about to reunite with her best friend Chris Evans in the Project Artemis work by director Jason Bateman.
