Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she likes to be made-up at all times because she never knows who she might bump into. The We Bought a Zoo actress went make-up free for the movie but said that in real life she always keeps a lipstick to hand. ‘I always like to put a little bit of make-up on,’ she told Style magazine. ‘I’m not the kind of person that just slops around in sweatpants. ‘I like to feel a little more together – you never know who you’re going to see out there!
‘My absolute must-have is a really rich and vibrant red lipstick. She continues: ‘I always keep red lipstick in my bag because I never know when I might show up to an event and be completely under-dressed. ‘I feel like red lipstick is the cure-all for everything.’ Johansson stars in family drama We Bought a Zoo alongside Matt Damon, Thomas Haden Church, Colin Ford, Desi Lydic, Patrick Fugit, and Elle Fanning.
The Cameron Crowe-directed movie is based on the memoir by Benjamin Mee, which chronicles how the author and his family spent their life savings to buy Dartmoor Zoological Park – a rundown zoo in the English countryside which homed 200 exotic animals facing extinction. While it takes inspiration from the British story, the movie is set in Southern California.
