Ac­tress spills beans on male co-stars

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Avengers ac­tress Scar­lett Jo­hans­son claims her male Mar­vel co-stars are not very “ma­cho”.

The 31-year-old has por­trayed Black Widow in a num­ber of movies in the fran­chise, in­clud­ing The Avengers, Iron Man and Cap­tain Amer­ica, and has found the likes of Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Mark Ruf­falo (Hulk), and Chris Evans, who por­trays Cap­tain Amer­ica, are much more “fem­i­nine” than peo­ple would think.

She said: “They want me to say they are ma­cho but they’re in touch with their fem­i­nine sides - some of them spend more time in the hair chair than me... Hemsworth.”

Jo­hans­son - who is mar­ried to art dealer Ro­main Dau­riac - shot much of The Avengers: Age of Ul­tron while preg­nant with daugh­ter Rose, now 20 months, and though it was a “sur­real” ex­pe­ri­ence, she in­sists no one on set treated her dif­fer­ently.

She said: “It was so sur­real. But soon af­ter we started shoot­ing, it was lib­er­at­ing.

“I was like, ‘And what? This is how it is’. Maybe I didn’t get thrown around as much but no­body treated me any dif­fer­ently.”

Jo­hans­son, who was pre­vi­ously mar­ried to Ryan Reynolds, is cur­rently train­ing to play a cy­borg cop in sci-fi thriller Ghost in the Shell and is find­ing jug­gling her prepa­ra­tions with or­di­nary home life quite strange.

She told Cos­mopoli­tan mag­a­zine: “I get up, pour the ol’ bowl of Chee­rios, take care of le bebe, make sure she’s all set, then I go fight, kick­box, and do Filipino stick train­ing and tac­ti­cal weapons train­ing.

“I get kicked about and then it’s night time and I go home, make din­ner, wash le bebe, pop her in her lit­tle bed­time place and hit the hay.”

Jo­hans­son’s lat­est Mar­vel movie, Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War, is out now in the cin­ema in the UAE. It in­tro­duces a new char­ac­ter, Black Pan­ther.
