    17 Times Scarlett Johansson And Florence Pugh Proved Their Offscreen Bond Is As Real As It Gets

    Move over, Hiddlesworth and Stackie.

    After much waiting, Black Widow is finally here and has blessed us with yet another iconic MCU duo in Natasha and Yelena.


    Even better, the bond between both ladies exists offscreen as well, since Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh seem to be as close as sisters in real life.

    Here are some of ScarFlo's sweetest BFF moments:

    6. When Scarlett could not stop listing positive adjectives to describe Florence, saying, "[She] is a stick of dynamite. She is so energetic, so fresh, soulful, and mischievous.

    8. When Scarlett said that Florence taught her to be less guarded and easier on herself.

    Scarlett: I was so much more guarded when I was starting in my twenties. She's just like an open book, and I think I learned to be a little easier on myself.

    9. When FloPugh revealed that the best part of working on Black Widow was being stuck to ScarJo for long periods of time.

    She said, "Lots of my downtime was actually spent strapped to Scarlett around my waist or me strapped around her neck in very hilariously risky positions, and we'd just be left up there for 10 minutes, and that was honestly the best time of filming Black Widow."

    10. When she elaborated about one such time during the bike chase scene in Black Widow. They were strapped together for many hours, and Florence enjoyed pulling Scarlett's hair from behind.

    11. When Scarlett revealed that she felt comfortable with Florence really quickly, as evidenced by the fact that she had no problem pointing out when Florence was sweating a lot.

    * They shared a tub of cookies and some garlic gazpacho (courtesy of Scarlett) on the set of Black Widow, and it was so good that Florence was still talking about it nearly two years later.

    * Scarlett was annoyed when she couldn't have ice cream on set, but Florence deeply enjoyed it, saying, "Scarlett's daughter would keep on delivering us ice cream because it was so hot, but Scarlett wouldn't be allowed it because she's not allowed dairy. So she'd be really annoyed that I was eating delicious ice cream right behind her."

    * Scarlett says she would love to guest-star in one of Florence's cooking videos on Instagram, and Florence has in turn requested that Scarlett teach her how to make lasagna. 

    14. When asked to draw each other, they absolutely nailed it.
