Scarlett Johansson told the world about her celebrity crush this week and while it’s someone you’ve likely heard of, it probably isn’t someone you expected.
The 32-year-old American actress made a guest appearance Monday on The Howard Stern Show to promote her new movie, Ghost in the Shell.
Notorious for his interviewing skills, the radio shock jock asked point blank who Johansson thought was the hottest man in the world right now. Newly single after filing her divorce papers earlier this month, Johansson initially struggled to come up with an answer.
“A physically appealing guy to me? Oh my gosh,” she said.
That’s when Stern decided to turn up the heat the way he normally does with famous people.
“Yeah, is it Brad Pitt?” Stern asked. “Like honestly, if I could put you in a movie with somebody, who would it be?”
Leonardo DiCaprio? George Clooney? Tom Cruise? Those guesses would all be wrong.
“I mean, honestly, I’m like somebody who likes Gordon Ramsay,” Johansson admitted before bursting into laughter.
“Gordon Ramsay you’re attracted to?” a stunned Stern replied. “Maybe I got a shot with you.”
Even Stern’s radio show co-host, Robin Quivers, couldn’t believe what she heard.
“He’s the hottest guy?” she asked, as Johansson kept laughing.
Unfortunately for the Lucy star, the 50-year-old British celebrity chef has been married since 1996, well before he became a well-known television personality for starring in shows such as Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen.
Despite being active on Twitter and rarely shy to speak his mind, Ramsay hasn’t mentioned anything about the revelation on social media.
Earlier this month, the celebrity known as “ScarJo” filed for divorce from her second husband, a Frenchman named Romain Dauriac. The former couple have one child together.
In 2011, Johansson parted ways with her first husband, Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds, who has since gotten married to another Hollywood celebrity, former Gossip Girl star Blake Lively.
