Scarlett Johansson: ‘I Can Get Down’

Scarlett Johansson may be an A-List movie star, but she's rarely spotted out at night in Hollywood. Don't mistake her absence on the scene, however, as an indication she's spending evenings at home in her PJs drinking flavored tea.

"I can get down, don't get me wrong," the actress laughed during an interview on Monday with Access Hollywood's Tony Potts to promote her new film, "Iron Man 2."

When Scarlett, who is married to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, does head outdoors, she's not at the bars, but instead, at concert halls.

"I do — I go out occasionally," she explained. "I like to go out. I like to hear music and go out for dinners and stuff like that but I'm not really a party in the club kind of girl."

Scarlett, a singer herself, said she prefers to keep things more low profile in order to keep her personal life, personal.

"You know, it's hard, particularly in this day and age, to kind of surprise your audience because they already know so much about you personally," she told Tony. "So I try to avoid that kind of scene as much as possible."

ScarJo also said she is thrilled for the upcoming May 7 release of "Iron Man 2," which marks her debut as sexy secret agent Natalie Romanova, AKA Black Widow; and she wouldn't mind taking her superhero for a solo trip.

"These movies are very fan driven so if the fans like my interpretation of the character, I would be happy to don the cat suit again and, you know, carry the torch," she said of a possible spin off film. "But there is no plan for anything like that. I know that Marvel is very behind this character so I'm keeping my fingers crossed."

In the meantime, Scarlett is just happy she gets to flex some girl power on the big screen alongside Gwyneth Paltrow in "Iron Man 2."

"These characters are strong, independent women that could function with or without the men in their lives," Scarlett enthused. "They run a smooth, efficient operation and are at the head of their game and I really attribute that to Jon Favreau's appreciation for a strong lady.

"It's very exciting to be that kind of role model for young girls and for women to see that you don't have to be the damsel in distress," she continued. "You can actually kick some a** and look fabulous doing it."
