Scarlett Johansson provided a breath of fresh air and a taste of home for about 600 marines stationed in Kuwait on Sunday. Unsurprisingly, the men lined up to catch a glimpse of the actress and were treated to conversation and autographs (a few even walked away with a stamp of red lipstick on their cheeks). Scarlett was happy to provide a bit of eye candy as a distraction from serving our country, saying,
It’s important to give people a piece of home and to boost morale. Everybody out here is risking everything, giving us one of the biggest gifts they can. I want to be out here to support them. It’s nice to give them a smile in the middle of the day. If they are missing home, feeling down or worried, hopefully being here will get their minds off of things.
As for her boyfriend Ryan Reynolds, something tells us he won't be too jealous about Scarlett being the object of affection for hundreds of men. It's still premature, but word on the street is that we can expect to hear engagement news to surface sometime in the near future.
