Scarlett Johansson Has Finally Addressed The Infamous Kiss Photo

The truth behind the awkward.

Posted on

The Oscars were held last Sunday, and amongst many great moments was this red carpet photo of John Travolta planting a kiss on a seemingly unimpressed Scarlett Johansson:

The hand placement, her facial expression... it was all just too much.

Obviously the Internet reacted immediately, creating memes such as this:

Everyone wanted to know what Scarlett was thinking in that moment. And the world can rest easy once more, because Scarlett has spoken:

"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. Yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle. I haven't seen John in some years and it is always a pleasure to be greeted by him."

And there you have it.
