Scarlett Johansson talked about portraying Black Widow while pregnant in The ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron” and got a surprised by her costar Chris Evans during in a lively appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The video (below) of her reaction is priceless!
The 30-year-old actress reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff a.k.a. Black Widow in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ to the delight of fans all over the world. She joins costars Robert Downey Jr. (Ironman), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk), and Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) who are all pitted against the titular arch villain Ultron, whom James Spader voices.
But since the release of the previous iteration of the hugely popular franchise, Scarlett Johansson has taken on a new role, as a first-time mother to her baby daughter Rose Dorothy, with husband Romain Dauriac, a French journalist.
And, what’s also notable is that she was pregnant during the filming of the movie, which, of course, sees her in her signature skin-tight black catsuit. We can only assume body doubles and CGI wizardry must somehow be involved. She said, “I was really happy to be working. I never thought I would be working in that condition. I was pretty big.”
Asked about how they were able to hide it, she said, “It just magically went away.” She went on to say, “I was super happy to be working. And everybody had to be nice to me which was cool.”
Asked what it was like being on set with a nearly all-male cast, she first noted the new female cast members, Cobie Smulders and Elizabeth Olsen. She went on to say, “I surround myself with like an army of women to kind of protect me against all the testosterone. We’re talking about actors, they’re very delicate.” Speaking of her costar, Chris Hemsworth, she added, “Hemsworth hair takes much longer than me, for sure.”
And, building up to the surprise, Ellen DeGeneres asked her about the other Chris in the movie, Chris Evans, noting that she has worked with him in numerous movies. Johansson chimed in, saying, “We’ve been working together since, I don’t know, like 17, I think. I know him very well. Too well I’m sure.”
With that cue, along came the man himself to surprise her, and the reaction is priceless; it’s no wonder the video has gone viral.
