Johansson: 'I'm not like Monroe'
Johansson was likened to Monroe after an advertising campaign for Dolce & Gabbana was revealed last month (Jan09), in which the actress poses seductively across silk bedsheets wearing just a corset.
But the Lost In Translation star is adamant she wasn't trying to channel Monroe in the shots.
She explains, "We really weren't trying to recreate any particular image. It was just their idea of the iconic blonde, and naturally people think that's Marilyn Monroe.
"Having said that, I love Marilyn. I think she was incredibly beautiful and a very underrated actress. I am a curvy woman who is blonde, and perhaps we are both comfortable in our femininity, but I think that is as far as the comparison goes."
