In addition to being a talented and recognised actor, Scarlett Johansson also has a great sense of humour. The viral footage was shown to the 38-year-old Asteroid City star on Friday, Nov. 17, during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. It included an interview she performed on the 2006 Oscar red carpet, which became viral later on due to circumstances behind her rather than anything the actress did.
Jimmy Fallon issued the following caveat prior to seeing the clip with Johansson: “This is real, take a look at this.” In the video, Johansson is occupied conversing with an interviewer when a tall brunette and a man enter the picture; they move to walk behind the actress to avoid getting in the way of the cameras. The woman vanished from sight as fast as she entered the frame, and the man carried on.
Astonished by what she just saw, Johansson looked at Fallon and said, “Oh my god, that is my mom.”
With his jaw on the floor, Fallon remained silent as Johansson repeated her statement, “That is my mom!”
“Wait, what?” the flustered 49-year-old comedian exclaimed before Johansson replied, “That’s my mom.”
mysteries aside, viewers had nothing but applause for Johansson, calling her a “good sport,” “iconic,” and someone who “understood the assignment.”
