Dressed inconspicuously with a cap shadowing her face and her hood up, many might mistake her for a regular park jogger.
Yet, the fitting leggings and snug top gave away hints of a celebrity presence.
The 25-year-old Scarlett Johansson was captured leaving her go-to gym in Los Angeles, armed with her iPod and hydration in tow. Just hours later, she re-emerged, all set for her guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
In a playful segment, Johansson got quite the surprise on the show. As she was discussing her role as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, a man dressed as a giant bumblebee startled her, leading to a loud, surprised scream from the actress.
The moment of levity continued when she was in the midst of sharing about her husband, Ryan Reynolds. Unexpectedly, the bumblebee crept up behind her, buzzing into her ear, causing her to exclaim, “You can’t do that on TV!” Clearly shaken, she added, “I’m terrified. What else is going to jump out at me?”
Ellen, with her trademark humor, quipped, “We’re done. The bee was just a distraction; you’re safe now.”
