Living up to her name: Scarlett Johansson wears red to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier UK premiere

If there’s one colour Scarlett Johansson knows how to wear, it’s the shade she shares her name with.

On Thursday night, she proved that once more by stepping out in a stunning red cocktail dress with matching lipstick and a manicure, to attend the London premiere of Captain America: The Winter soldier.

But there was no sign of the actress’s baby bump just yet having announced this month that she was expecting her first child.

Scarlett is having a baby with her French fiancé Romain Dauriac, but she was flying solo on Thursday to promote the Marvel sequel in which she reprises her role as S.H.I.E.L.D agent Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow.

At a press conference earlier in the day, Scarlett said she felt ‘forever wounded’ after suffering various injuries as a result of her action movie roles.

Having slipped back into a slinky catsuit of Black Widow, for the third time Johansson admitted she has been suffering bumps and bruises ever since her first appearance as the former KGB agent in 2010’s Iron Man 2.

‘I am forever wounded from these movies,’ Scarlett said. ‘I have old injuries from Iron Man 2 and I keep re-injuring them. That’s part of the joy and part of the process, I guess.’

At a London press conference she said that despite the risks, she prefers to do as much of her own stuntwork as possible, and enjoys comparing the “battle wounds” with her male co-stars, who include Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie and Samuel L Jackson.

‘As you sustain more injuries over time, it hurts for longer and things like that, but I guess I like to do as much of the stuntwork as possible and you take a little bit of a risk with that,’ she explained.
