In a recent podcast interview, Scarlett Johansson opened up about her close friendship with fellow Marvel co-star Chris Evans. Although she’s played the role of Black Widow since 2010, her bond with Captain America dates back even further to when they starred in the movie The Perfect Score together, when Scarlett was just 17 years old. During their time on set, the two spent countless hours discussing relationships and family dynamics. Despite Chris being a couple of years older than her, they share a dynamic similar to that of a big sister and little brother, as Nat and Steve do in the Marvel movies. Scarlett also revealed that her husband Colin Jost refuses to practice scenes with her, leaving her to rely on her trusted friend Chris for acting practice.

'I've been very close with Chris for such a long time', the actress revealed. 'With the first time we worked together, we did a movie called The Perfect Score when I was 17.'

The actress shared that she has had a strong bond with Chris for an extended period. They first collaborated on a film titled The Perfect Score when she was only 17 years old.

The two stars, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans, have maintained a professional relationship after working together in the 2004 teen comedy, The Perfect Score. The movie centered around a group of college-bound students from New Jersey who attempted to steal the answers to the SAT. Several years later, they found themselves as superheroes within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chris played the role of Captain America/Steve Rogers while Scarlett portrayed Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff. Fans are eagerly anticipating Scarlett’s upcoming solo film, Black Widow, which has faced multiple delays due to the pandemic but is finally set to hit theaters soon.

'We could talk for hours, and about all kinds of stuff, in a way the sort of like big sister relationship that Nat has sometimes with Steve – even though Chris is a couple of years older than me – but I think we sort of have that same dynamic,' Scarlett concluded. (seen in 2015)

Scarlett shared that she and Chris have a close relationship akin to that of a big sister and brother, like how Nat sometimes is with Steve. They could chat for hours about various topics and have the same dynamic. In 2015, she made this observation. When it comes to her latest film, Scarlett’s husband Colin Jost is not interested in hearing any spoilers. He refuses to practice scenes with her to avoid having the movie spoiled. Scarlett shared that Colin was in London shooting Tom and Jerry while she was filming her new movie, which worked out well as they were together in the same city for a lengthy period, a rare occurrence. If there were any significant action scenes or sequences being shot, Colin did not want to hear anything about it.

The upcoming film Black Widow is sure to surprise many, including Scarlett Johansson’s husband and SNL star Colin Jost. He refuses to practice scenes with her for fear of spoilers that could ruin the movie. While he is interested in her day-to-day, he draws the line at potentially ruining the movie experience. The film takes place after Captain America: Civil War and before Johansson’s character meets her fate in Avengers: Endgame. As the 24th film in the franchise and the first of phase four in the MCU, Black Widow is set to hit theaters on July 9 and will also be available on Disney+ the same day.
