How You May Actually Be Smarter Than Scarlett Johansson
“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. I got a 1,080, which was pretty low,” she mused. “But that was probably because I didn’t answer half of the math questions.”
(As a point of reference, her interviewer scored a 1,360.)
“Well, now I feel like a big dummy with 1,080,” she added, before revealing that her low test score didn’t nab her a spot in one of the nation’s most prestigious schools.
“I didn’t get into NYU’s film school. I still have the rejection letter,” she quipped.
Johansson continued: “I was actually at the inauguration in 2009, and my brother Hunter came with me. He’s involved in city politics, so he knows everyone at the administrative level. Anyhow, we’re there freezing our asses off, and my brother was like, ‘Scarlett, that’s the president of NYU standing right in front of us. Do you want to tell him?’ And I was on the absolute verge of going up to him to tell him. But then I realized that it might prevent me from one day getting one of those degrees they give you.”
“Well, I just want to put that out there—that I’m available,” she added.
