‘The Spirit’ Premieres: ScarJo Is A Lover, Not A Fighter

Scarlett Johansson, one of the cadre of curvaceous female co-stars in Frank Miller’s The Spirit chatted on the red carpet about her real-life grappling abilities and whether or not she co-star or Eva Mendes would win in a fight against one another.

Johansson told Entertainment Tonight, “Probably Eva. I might slice her with my verbal kung fu though.” Ha! She just called Eva dumb. Oh, I’m just trying to start some shit to see if we can’t get these ladies to fight for real. Imagine how much money we could get for selling a tissue used to clean their bloody noses?

But what I’d really love is a showdown with Suri “Switchblade” Cruise and ScarJo. Suri’s got a black belt in cutting a bitch down with her words. Every day, I try to learn a little bit from her teachings.

Oh yes, and did we mention that Luke Skywalker was at the Hollywood premiere for The Spirit? That’s right, Mark Hamill showed up looking for work with his laser sword in his back pocket, no doubt. Quentin Tarantino needs to help a brother out with a comeback.

Featured in the gallery: Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Paz Vega, Jacinda Barrett, Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Amanda Peet, Mark Hamill, Sarah Paulson, Jamie King, Eric Balfour, Frank Miller and Stana Katic.
