Scarlett Johansson and Benicio del Toro alone in an elevator at the Chateau Marmont hotel? The star responds to rumors that have chased her since 2004.
Rumors have been circulating for years about an alleged sexual encounter between the two Hollywood stars. Years ago, Scarlett Johansson has been the subject of rumors that it would had sex in the elevator with actor Benicio del Toro, after the 2004 Oscars aired, at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles. The 37-year-old actress has now denied these rumors, calling them “Absurd and scandalous”.
The same rumors were fueled by del Toro who, in an interview dating back to 2005, said: “Have I ever had sex with Scarlett Johansson? Well, I don’t know. It could be, let’s leave it to the imagination. I’m sure it has already happened and that it will happen again “. The actress of Black Widow has now addressed the issue, but without naming the colleague: “There was a rumor that had been going around for a long time that I had had sex in an elevator. That was a story that has followed me for a long time. But I always thought it was scandalous. It would be really hard for me to do it in an elevator. The logistics seem so unattractive to me. I am someone who is terrified of being caught doing something they shouldn’t do. This story is so absurd to me “.

Scarlett Johansson’s upcoming film projects include Asteroid City by Wes Anderson and the science fiction drama Bride. Benicio del Toro will play alongside Alicia Silverstone in the crime thriller Reptile.
The actress recently revealed the one thing she hopes her children will never find out about her past: “When I was younger I used to smoke and I’m so ashamed. I don’t want them to think I ever thought it was cool to smoke because I don’t want them to smoke, ever, ever, ever. That’s how it works, you forbid your kids to do things and then they don’t. I just hope they never understand “.
