Scarlett Johansson Finally Opens Up About The John Travolta Oscar Kiss Moment

As it appears, Johansson wasn’t as uncomfortable with that little encounter as we all assumed.

Scarlett Johansson has something to say about the brief – yet awkward – moment she shared with John Travolta on Academy Awards red carpet last Sunday.

While Internet has been busy chastising the Grease actor for sneaking up on Scar Jo and planting a kiss on her face while she gave him an uncomfortable side-eye, the actress has come forward saying that Travolta did not overstep any boundaries.

“There is nothing strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta," said Johansson. "He is a true class act and everyone in the business would agree.”

She also criticized the viral image as an unfortunate still-frame that failed to reflect a “totally sweet and totally welcome” encounter between the duo.

“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.”

Both actors have worked together in the 2004 drama "A Love Song for Bobby Long."
