Scarlett Johansson Reveals Her Low SAT Score during a Chat with Darren Aronofsky
Oops! Can't cry over spilt milk!
Scarlett Johansson, the 29-year-old American actress revealed her low SAT score during a conversation with 'Black Swan' director Darren Aronofsky in the October issue of Interview magazine.
When Aronofsky couldn't remember his SAT score, the 'Don Jon' star revealed hers!
According to NY Daily News, Johansson, who went to P.S. 41 on 11th St. in Greenwich Village, and Professional Children's School from 8th grade until she graduated, didn't perform well in her SATs.
" I think the way it worked when I took them was that they were out of 1,600, so maybe you'd get a 1,240 if you were a smarty-pants," the blonde bombshell said (quoted in Huffington Post). "I got a 1,080, which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn't answer half of the math questions."
Johansson would have sat for the SATs around 2002, during which the average score was 1020, making 1,080 slightly above average, the Post reports.
Later, when Aronofsky admitted that he did remember his SAT score, which was 1,360. "You suck," Johansson replied. "Damn it ... Now I feel like a big dummy with 1,080."
While Johansson did pretty badly in her SAT's, she achieved huge commercial success in tinsel town with 1998's 'The Horse Whisperer' and 'Ghost World' (2001). Johansson, who has been in the acting business since age 8, made her film debut in North (1994). She was later nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in Manny & Lo (1996).
Johansson, who also tasted success in films like 'Match Point', 'Iron Man 2' and 'The Avengers', came close to quitting acting.
"I was always terrible at commercials because my voice was so deep. At the age of nine, I sounded like a whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking fool. Wasn't going to sell Jell-O with that voice," Johansson told the Daily Mail UK.
"There was someone in my older brother's class who was doing some commercials so my mom took me to that kid's agent. They didn't want me though, I was devastated. I thought it was the end of my career. And that's when I realised that by crying I could get whatever I wanted."
After 'Don Jon,' Johansson will be busy shooting for 'The Avengers" sequel.
"We'll be shooting that in January," Johansson told the NY Daily news. "I think we're taking it to the streets this time, I think we're going overseas."
