Allegations have been alleged that Johansson and Allen are allegedly having an affair. When asked for comment, Woody Allen said, “Scarlett and I have nothing to hide. Scarlett and I have nothing in common.”
Allen’s attorney has also denied the allegations.
told ABC News, “A lot of people believe that Woody Allen is a real person. They don’t believe they will find out anything about it.”
Johansson’s husband, a “comedian” named Colin Jost, believes that Woody Allen IRL is a celebrity who “does nothing but gossip about celebrity heirs, friends, family, work as celebrities. No one really knows. It’s that. It’s just not worth it.”
“I’m sorry there doesn’t have to be an official story,” said Johansson, who was also quoted as saying in an article in the Hollywood Reporter. “The reality is it’s a little hard to believe.”
“That’s because most of this gossip is mostly the gossip writers who are getting a pass at writing and sharing stuff with the media, most famously with Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher. What’s a celebrity family to doing that to a guest producer because the people that make it seem that you’re there are real, true family members, too, that they can relate to and have an understanding about what’s going on.”
Johansson added, “The idea of celebrities who do nothing more than gossip is a ridiculous, false, ridiculous idea.”
The issue also raises the issue of what happens if a company gets hired to produce the show. “As a former journalist who did an enormous amount of interviewing, I’ve noticed that you know the reality is we don’t have a lot left to shoot,” said Johansson. “We don’t have a set schedule, there’ve been too many conflicts between the production companies that they’re producing, and it’s up to us to take that risk, but the reality is that most of this gossip is mostly the gossip writers who are getting a pass at writing and sharing stuff with the media, most famously with Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher.”
The allegations led to the release of an article on BuzzFeed that accused Johansson of being part of a ring of corruption in Sweden.
An investigation with the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter has been launched.
Johansson has never been arrested in sexual assault cases.
Johansson, however, said she would not reveal who exactly she is. Asked what the scandal is, Johansson explained that no one was ready to look for the details.
“Anybody can make a complaint, and it doesn’t help that there are people there who are saying something in Swedish. And then there’s also the fact that there’s nothing there, I don’t know that very well,” she said.
Allen declined to comment when contacted by ABC News.
According to Dagens Nyheter, the police described the ring’s purpose as prostitution and described it as an “adult film theater” that sold condoms and was the most lucrative in the country.
Despite Johansson’s claims of innocence, there seems to be little the Swedish judicial system can do. After all, this is a newspaper investigation launched by Dagens Nyheter.
“They [the authorities] have to find out who else is involved with the investigation, and then they have to go through the full evidence,” Johansson said.
“I’m sure it is completely not possible to just come up with your own theories,” she added. “And let’s say I’m a little bit confused by the whole story.”
