Scarlett Johansson finally reacts to rumours of having sex with Benicio Del Toro in an elevator


Scarlett Johansson has finally decided it was time to address a bizarre rumour about her that has been doing the rounds of Hollywood for quite a while now.

The rumour goes that a few years ago, Scarlett and actor Benicio Del Toro allegedly had sex in an elevator following an awards show.

The ‘Black Widow’ actor addressed the rumour and spoke about why it was so absurd in a recent interaction with the media.

Apparently, the rumour grew traction after Benicio allegedly gave a rather cryptic response when he was asked a suggestive question during an interview. He was jokingly asked by the interviewer if he ever had sex with Scarlett Johansson in an elevator.

Benicio in response repeated the question and replied, “I kind of like, you know, I, well. I don’t know. Let’s leave that to somebody’s imagination. Let’s not promote it. I’m sure it has happened before. It might not be the last time either.”  This interview was with Esquire Magazine.

His cryptic answer started the strange rumour that has been floating around Hollywood for a few years now. On Tuesday, April 12, while speaking on the podcast, TheSkimm’s 9 to 5ish, Scarlett addressed what she termed an “outrageous” rumour without naming Benicio. She said, “That was a story that followed me for a long time. But I always thought that was outrageous. I was always thinking to myself. That would be tough. It’s a very short period, the logistics of that seem so unappealing to me.”

The Avenger’s star added that she is someone who is scared of being caught doing something wrong which makes this rumour even more absurd. She said, “I’m a person who’s terrified of being caught doing something I’m not supposed to be doing. So that made the story even that much more absurd to me.”

Benicio Del Toro and Scarlett Johansson were both part of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ although they don’t have any scenes with each other. Benicio played ‘The Collector’ while Scarlett reprised her MCU role of Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff. It’s ironic that such a rumour happened as Scarlett and Benicio were never romantically linked in the past. Scarlett is currently married to comedian/writer Colin Jost and two have a son together.
