Scarlett Johansson Addresses Rumour She Shagged Benicio Del Toro In An Elevator



I sort of know a bit about seedy celebrity trysts having worked on this website for the past decade, but I gotta say I never heard the one about Scarlet Johansson having sex with Benicio Del Toro in a lift. Must have just missed it.

Apparently it’s a big enough of a deal for Johansson to talk about in a recent interview with TheSkimm’s 9 to 5ish podcast. The pair allegedly met at a party at the 2004 Oscars ceremony – where Johansson was 19 and Del Toro was 37 – and  bumped uglies in a lift as they made her way up to a suite at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles.

Here’s what Johansson had to say about it:

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.’

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.

Hmmm. That all sounds above board or whatever but it’s kinda going against what she told Allure back in 2004:

He’s a fabulous guy.

Apparently there was somebody with us in an elevator, and we were making out or having sex or something, which I think is very unsanitary.

And Benicio Del Toro also said this at the time too:

Did I ever have sex in an elevator with Scarlett Johansson after an awards show? 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.

The Chateau Marmont only has eight floors. I would still be struggling out of my leather jacket by the second floor and wouldn’t even have my shirt off at the seventh.

I guess there’s no such thing as bad publicity and at the time, the two of them thought they might as well dine out on it. Fair play –  they probably would have been cancelled if the same thing happened today due to the age difference between them and the public nature of their entanglement!

Sorta sounds to me that now Scarlet has a husband and a baby (comedian Colin Jost and little boy Cosmo) that she wants to distance herself from her wild teenage behaviour. And that’s perfectly reasonable. Good thing she was fairly coy at the time I suppose. We all know what really happened though.

For more of the same, check out this story about a mother catching her daughter giving a blow job. Awkward.
