Scarlett Johansson turns popcorn girl in Paris

PARIS (AFP) – Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson swapped the red carpet for a turn behind the counter at her new popcorn shop in Paris on Saturday.

The “Lost in Translation” actress — decked out in a classic French blue and white striped top — dished out the crunchy treat to punters at the launch of the Yummy Pop store she and husband Romain Dauriac have opened in the city s trendy Marais district.

The couple hope their unusual twists on the classic cinema snack — including the 31-year-old “Avengers” star s favourite truffle, parmesan and sage flavour — will wow customers in the gastronomic capital of the world.

Ahead of the launch, Johansson s spokesman in Los Angeles said the she was passionate about popcorn, adding that it was cooked and mixed fresh on the spot with seasonal ingredients.

After Saturday s soft launch, an official grand opening is planned for a later date.
