There’s no denying Scarlett Johansson is sexy — but I bet the last thing she may have wanted is to be used to sell erotic toys and porn.
An adult superstore called VIP — in Calexico, Calif., near the Mexican border — is using a picture of a scantily clad ScarJo on its business cards. TMZ first reported on the story yesterday, and upon asking the store manager about it, he replied, “What does it have to do with the business card? I don’t know who Scarlett Johansson is.” Silly man.
When the manager was properly informed of the actress’ identity, he said, “The owner ordered cards from a company and said we need something with a girl on the card and the company did it.” But rather than go bananas over being some random girl whose pretty pic is helping sell sex toys, lotions and “lubricante,” Johansson is laughing it off, reports E! News.
“I applaud TMZ’s, once again, award-winning investigative journalism for securing the knowledge of my legions of Mexican fans.”
Ha! So I guess Scar isn’t rushing to have her picture be removed from the cards, though I’m sure her publicist might have something to say about that. If this was someone else (ahem, Kim Kardashian), the store owner would have already been sent a letter demanding her image be taken down.
Thankfully, Scarlett is sexy and she knows it. She hasn’t let fame get to her, has kept her sense of humour intact and probably gets a kick out of a shot of her wearing a black bra, white unbuttoned shirt and tiny shorts is selling naughty playthings.
