IGN recently interviewed Scarlett Johansson, an American actress who has become well-known for her portrayal of Natasha Romanoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The interview was meant to promote Ghost in the Shell, an upcoming action film starring Johansson that is set to launch in March 2017. Ghost in the Shell is based on a popular Japanese manga series, so in that spirit, IGN’s interview included many “nerdy” questions which were mostly based on video games and anime.
At one point in the interview, Johansson was asked to name her favorite video game. She said that Mario Kart was by far her favorite, and that she usually plays as Toad, since he’s “so cute!“
IGN: “What’s your favorite video game?”
Scarlett Johansson: “My favorite video game? Um, probably Mario Kart.”
IGN: “Who do you play as?”
Johansson: “Usually Toad. He’s so cute!”
What do you guys think? Personally, I find this pretty amusing. Of course, it’s disheartening to find out that a fantastic actress like Johansson has such a terrible taste in Mario Kart characters, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
