Johansson Liked ‘getting tough’

SCARLETT Johansson got to throw a punch in new movie Iron Man 2 — and she loved it!

The movie beauty — who plays the role of the black widow in the eagerly-awaited flick — hates playing weak female parts and reveled in the chance to be the tough girl for once.
“Well obviously I don’t do damsel in distress very well,” she says. “The essence of this character is that she throws a punch like it’s going to go through you. For me that was an exciting challenge. I’d never done anything like that before — especially this physical aspect of the stunt work and all that.
“I’d never been able to challenge myself in that way so that was exciting. Something new. And it used up aggression too.”
Johansson (24) recently revealed that she dyed her hair red to impress Iron Man director Jon Favreau. –– Showbiznews.
