Kissing Penelope Cruz was not sexy: Scarlett Johansson

Kissing Penelope Cruz was "the least sexy thing you can ever imagine", according to Scarlett Johansson. The blonde beauty, who locks lips with the Spanish siren Cruz in Woody Allen's new movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona, insists despite the hype surrounding the raunchy scene, it did not live up to her expectations.

Johansson said: "There were about 60 crewmen sitting around eating salami sandwiches! It's really the least sexy thing you can ever imagine!"

Scarlett also said the scene will only shock the most conservative viewers, adding: "These characters are in love with each other! Oh my gosh! People are so conservative!"

However Scarlett, who is engaged to Definitely, Maybe star Ryan Reynolds, admits she would love to be nominated in the Best Kiss category at next year's MTV Movie Awards.

"Anytime that my name and best kiss come up, I'm more than inclined to accept the award," she said.

It was Johansson's third time working with Allen, who directed her in Match Point and Scoop. Has she set a date with Reynolds?

“We’re just enjoying our time,” she said. “We’re just recently - very recently - engaged. So, you know, we’re just taking it easy. And no big plan yet. But it’s a good time and we’re just … enjoying our time to be young and engaged.

“I mean, I’m 23. There’s no reason to rush into it. Everything feels very natural and relaxed.”
