Scarlett Johansson, who played an extraterrestrial in Under the Skin but is almost certainly a human being in real life, says John Travolta did not creep her out at the Oscars. People might think that she looks uncomfortable in the photo above, but people are wrong.
The image that is circulating is an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was very sweet and totally welcome. That still photo does not reflect what preceded and followed if you see the moment live. ... I haven't seen John in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him.
Johansson totally welcomed the live-action encounter. John Travolta said "Hi," like humans do, and she took pleasure in the greeting.
She adds, "There is nothing strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta."
