Scarlett Johansson Reveals Her SAT Score & Her Secret Weapon In Interview: “By Crying I Get What I Want!”

Scarlett Johansson may be considered one of the biggest names in Hollywood right now, but the Don Jon actress, who is featured on the cover of Interview‘s October 2013 issue, just revealed that she has beauty and brains. In fact, her SAT score was pretty decent.

“I think the way it worked when I took them was that they were out of 1,600, so maybe you’d get a 1,240 if you were a smarty pants,” said Johansson who attended P.S. 41 on 11th St. in Greenwich Village and Professional Children’s School from 8th to 12th Grade. “I got a 1,080, which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn’t answer half of the math questions.”

But while ScarJo is more than just a pretty face, the blonde bombshell admits that she suffered through her fair share of rejection while pursuing a career in acting. “My brother did Little League, and I took acting and singing and tap and all that,” the 28-year-old actress Johansson says of her early acting days as an 8-year-old. “There was someone in my older brother’s class who was doing some commercials and theater, so my mom took me to that kid’s agent because I loved musicals. They didn’t want me, though. I was devastated. I thought it was the end of my career. I was always terrible at commercials because my voice was so deep. At the age of 9, I sounded like a whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking fool. Wasn’t going to sell Jell-O with that voice. And that’s when I realized that by crying I could get whatever I wanted.”

While Scarlett may have conquered Hollywood—she’ll start filming The Avengers sequel in January—the actress admits she still has fears. “I’m terrified to ride a bike in a city—and I grew up riding bikes in the city,” she says. “I’ve just heard enough stories—I have enough friends who’ve been hit by taxicabs and things. Then, you know, there’s also the bike messenger who is definitely riding with a purpose and wants you off his f—— bike path…you have to ride the wave of the fixed gear—you have to just sort of catch that wave and ride it. Otherwise, you wind up riding behind somebody who has no idea how to ride a bike.”

The October issue of Interview featuring Johansson hits newsstands today.
