'I'm not anything like her...'


The director wanted to get away from “that sexualised thing” for Scarlett Johansson’s character in Marvel Avengers Assemble. They put her in a catsuit. She talks to TARA BRADY

SCARLETT JOHANSSON curls into a ball on the couch and puts her head in her hands. She emits a little rasp in mock anguish. Huzzah.

It’s a bit like hearing Paul Daniels say “Not a lot” or meeting Keith Richards out on the tiles of an evening.

“It was a good premiere last night,” she groans. “But it was a little too good. All that screaming. I felt like Tiffany or something.” Fatigue, however, has not prevented the Marvel Avengers Assemble star from attempting to steal my Lego.

“I have a Lego? Is that my Lego?” she cries, as she cradles my Black Widow action figure: now available as an awesome Lego piece. “Oh my God.”

I’m not crazy about her eyebrows, I say.

“No! No! I don’t know what you’re talking about. She is totally rad. I love Black Widow as a Lego. Look at her curvy waist. It’s drawn on and everything. This is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ve always, always loved Lego.
