Actress isn’t interested in losing weight

Scarlett Johansson has rubbished rumours she’s on an extreme diet.

US reports allege the actress is resorting to drastic measures to get into shape for her role as Black Widow in the Iron Man sequel.

‘Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met, eating sprouted grains I can’t pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5ft 3in frame,’ says Scarlett.

‘I’m a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I’d have to part with both arms. And a foot.’

Scarlett, 24, reckons the false reports could encourage her fans to starve themselves.

‘I would be absolutely mortified to discover that some 15-year-old girl in Kansas City read one of these “articles” and decided she wasn’t going to eat for a couple of weeks so she too could “crash diet” and look like Scarlett Johansson,’ she tells The Huffington Post.

Iron Man 2 is due for release in May next year.
