MCU Star Scarlett Johansson Made Fun of Thor 2 Star During Their Time in Together in $30M Indie Film: “For every one of his steps, I took like four”

Scarlett Johansson’s filmography boasts of a wide array of eclectic and memorable characters. Debuting as a child star, her breakthrough role as Charlotte in Lost in Translation made her a recognizable talent in Hollywood. With films like Vicky Christina Barcelona, Match Point, and her successful MCU stint as Black Widow, Johansson cemented her place in the big leagues.

Her latest project saw the celebrity playing a 1950s star in Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed independent film Asteroid City which opened at the Cannes film festival. Apart from Scarlett Johansson, the film had a huge ensemble cast of glittering big names including Tom Hanks, Jason Schwartzman, Margot Robbie, Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Steve Carell, and Matt Dillon to name a few. Veteran actor and Thor 2 star Jeff Goldblum rounded up the impressive cast and was part of a funny memory on the sets for Scarlett Johansson.

Scarlett Johansson Couldn’t Keep Up With Jeff Goldblum

Scarlett Johansson played a small but significant role in Wes Anderson’s recent release Asteroid City. The Marvel star and her co-actor Jason Schwartzman spoke about the memorable experiences working with Wes Anderson and the impressive bunch of superstars who were also part of the film. Johansson recalled many unforgettable moments on set including sharing workout schedules with Jurassic Park star Jeff Goldblum which turned out to be extremely interesting given their difference in physical stature.

“It was inpiring. For every one of his steps, I took like four. He was just slowly walking”

Johansson further added that her short time on the set felt like an extensive period of wonderful experiences that she will cherish forever thanks to director Wes Anderson’s unique cinematic sensibilities and her rapport with her co-stars.

Scarlett Johansson’s Hope For Asteroid City

Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City which premiered in May, deals with world-changing supernatural events that spectacularly disrupt the itinerary of a Junior Stargazer/Space Cadet convention in an American desert town in the 1950s. Scarlett Johansson plays a 50s movie star who forms a bond with a widower and his child played by Jason Schwartzman. Speaking of her takeaways from the film, Johansson said,

“I think the film has an existential quality to it. I think just being able to sit and let the movie wash over you and also take from it in return – living with those characters and these vulnerabilities that are exposed as they encounter one another which ends up telling you a lot about themselves”.

The Black Widow star believed that the film succeeded in allowing audiences to reflect on their lives through these characters while the subtle storytelling ensured that the message was seamlessly delivered as opposed to forcibly drilled in.
