Ellen: Scarlett Johansson & Robert Downey Jr

It’s not all embarrassing photos and silly games when you’re in The Ellen DeGeneres Show audience. Sometimes there are other perks as well, like a screening of The Avengers movie. Now that everyone has seen the movie, they should be excited to hear what Robert Downey Jr and Scarlett Johansson have to say about working on it.

Robert Downey Jr even wore a West Coast Avengers T-shirt on the show, as a nod to the new movie. Ellen recalled seeing Scarlett on the set of We Bought A Zoo, which was partly filmed near the farm where Ellen spends weekends counting her money and Fending Off Rattlesnakes.

“That whole experience was so blissful,” Scarlett said. “It was just animals all day and sunshine.”

Is Robert Downey Jr Afraid Of Ellen?

Ellen said it’s been about six years (and countless Ellen haircuts) since Robert’s last visit to the show. That time he was on with Sting, and Ellen said she thinks he must be afraid to come on her show alone. Given Ellen’s track record for scaring and humiliating guests, that’s a totally rational fear.

To put the rumors of fear to rest, Robert Downey Jr offered to sleep over at Ellen’s house this weekend. He has a home not far from Ellen’s Malibu property, where he has horses and recently rescued two kittens.

Their names are D’Artanian and Montgomery, or Dart and Monty for short. He said that, while the cats are cute, he was worried about taking in rescue animals. “They’re all weird and they’re scarred and damaged, like me,” he said. But he fell in love instantly when he saw these two.

Scarlett Johansson said she loves cats, but isn’t sure they’d get along with her Chihuahua. She also thinks she travels too much to give cats the attention they need.

Ellen Scarlett Johansson Vogue

In a photo shoot for Vogue, Scarlett Johansson can be seen posing with a leopard, which looks risky. But the secret is that the leopard was photographed separately and edited into the photo spread, so she was never really in danger.

Robert also has another new addition at home, three month old son Exton Elias, with his wife Susan. He said the child is starting to make sounds, “like a bad date with someone who’s really small.” The baby is even sleeping through the night, and behaving well, “except for when he isn’t.”

Ellen: Scarlett Johansson Hollywood Walk of Fame Star

Scarlett noted that she is not expecting children in her life anytime soon. But she did recently get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star is on Hollywood Boulevard, and it was just installed on the famous street.

As for Robert Downey Jr, he does not yet have a star on the Walk of Fame, but he said he has his hands and footprints immortalized. Ellen wondered why he does not yet have his own star. She and Scarlett agreed that fans should start a campaign to get him a star.
