Johansson, Allen have a professional thing

NEW YORK, March 20 (UPI) -- Actress Scarlett Johansson and fabled U.S. actor-director Woody Allen have a mutual adoration society, the actress said in the April issue of Vogue.

"I'd sew the hems of his pants if he asked me to," Johansson, 22, said in the Vogue interview, USA Today reported Tuesday.


For his part, Allen, 71, called his "Match Point" star "criminally sexy" in an e-mail to Vogue.

"She is unlike anyone who has come before her, and while she is a much stronger actress in every way, there is a tiny bit of Marilyn Monroe in her zaftig humidity," he wrote.

The Johansson-Allen attraction is purely professional, she said, telling told Vogue she works to keep her romantic life private.

But Johansson said reports last month that she and singer Justin Timberlake were an item were "not true" and when asked about "Black Dahlia" co-star Josh Hartnett, she offered, "I'd rather not comment on my personal life in that way."

Johansson's next film, "The Nanny Diaries," opens April 20.
