Scarlett Johansson Comments on John Travolta Kiss at Oscars 2015

She added, “The image that is circulating is an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was very sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. Yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle. I haven’t seen John in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him.”

    Classy lady.

  • ambistoes

    Sounds like she’s just spouting what the Hollywood machine would want her to say. She allowed another man to grope her on the red carpet as well. Maybe “John” has learned a bit of a lesson here, people think he’s creepy for pawing much younger females.

  • Jo

    Don’t like her, but that was nice of her.
    Don’t understand why its Bash Travolta week in the papers/blogs.

  • cyclesn

    But he still looks like pure wax in those photos. Did he think it was a good way to refute the 3AM Gym stories? He was also groping adzeem nadel’s chin like crazy. Maybe he was “medicated” on the night?

  • cielodrive

    If you’re referring to Isaac Mizrahi touching her breast some years ago, she did not like that. If you saw the actual news clip of Travolta greeting her, it was very quick and no groping was involved. Why would Hollywood pressure her to make such a statement? She has a lot more career clout than he does.

    Scarlett and John Travolta have been friends since they made a movie together called A Love Song for Bobby Long. Sometimes the media invents stories. I’m glad she spoke up.

  • dalovelee

    Uh Scarlett Johansson doesn’t need to spout anything..if she were some newbie to Hollywood yes..But she’s as A List as they come. She doesn’t need to say anything. How would that work anyway…whose career is she trying to save..Travolta’s icon and she’s totally in demand and command of herself and career..I think she’s smart and doesn’t have to kiss anyone’s ass.

  • SaraJ

    And that’s exactly what I thought when I saw it live. People are so mean.

  • Ray

    Oh, please. The moment was totally innocent.

  • suzybel

    I have no idea why this became such a news item. It’s just a little smooch on the cheek. It happens all the time. It seems John Travolta can do nothing right.

  • Kris

    If you see the video you can tell that it was just the wrong shot. Her reaction was actually sweet and what Travolta did was nothing wrong!

  • safari magen

    People are horrible, thank you Scarlet very classy woman.
