This evening Scarlett Johansson is back on tv with Lucy, the 2014 film directed by Luc Besson in which she plays a woman who acquires extraordinary abilities following the ingestion of a particular drug. However, it seems that the actress has equally developed skills in answering her daughter’s embarrassing questions.
Interviewed by Ellen De Generis the star of Black Widow has revealed that she has serious difficulties in coping with the rather uncomfortable questions of little Rose Dorothy of only 7 years:
“She asked me why my panties always ride up my butt line and I tried to explain to her that it was the natural shape of those panties. I said things like, ‘Because mom doesn’t want my panties to line is visible through the pants.’ To which she, very confused, looked at me and asked me: ‘And why mom?’ And I said to her: ‘Because if the seam is wide it shows through the pants and I don’t want it to show’, and she continued: ‘I don’t understand, but you’re wearing underpants, so it’s normal for them to show’. We went on like this for a while. In the end I gave up”.
Scarlett Johansson has recently become Cosmo’s mother, but her eldest daughter at the moment seems to be the most “problematic” of her children, precisely because of her incurable curiosity: “My daughter asks too many embarrassing questions. She keeps asking me ‘Why do you tweeze your eyebrows? Why do you curl your eyelashes? What is a pad? What is it for?’. I often find myself at a loss and try always find the most suitable answer”.
