Scarlett Johansson looked pretty upset at the time of the funny skit that saw the ‘SNL’ star drop a green goo over her head.
Scarlett Johansson jokingly insulted her husband Colin Jost after he threw a green bowl full of slime over her at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on May 16.
The actress was in the process of receiving her special Generation Award for a pre-taped speech when the moment happened.
The Funny Incident
Clutching her bucket of golden popcorn, the 36-year-old looked glam and poised as she thanked her fans. Just as she was sharing a “sneak peek” of her new movie, her husband walked into the shot, wearing a white T-shirt and holding a red bowl.
The actor and the star of Saturday night played this moment laughing and Scarlett pretended to be shocked, then became very upset as it can be seen in the clip above.
“What f ***?” She asks. “MTV, you got slimed,” he said. “That’s Nickelodeon,” she clapped back, wiping away the green mess as he grabbed a towel. Eventually, after he tried to calm her down by saying that he loves her, Scarlett barked back, “Where did you even get this?”
Scarlett is the latest in an A-list to be awarded the Generation Award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
The mother has been given special recognition, previously given to an impressive galaxy, including Sandra Bullock, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith and Reese Witherspoon.
Scarlett has been a fan favorite for decades. Long before she was seen in Marvel films, she showed her skills in 1998 play The Horse Whisperer. Still in her mid-teens she held her own opposite acting legend Robert Redford.
Scarlett’s been releasing blockbuster performances and indie titles that have been heavily respected since then. Some of the highlights of her career include Lost In Translation and Marriage Story.
