Scarlett Johansson denies she is Woody Allen's muse.
'The Other Boleyn Girl' actress has played down recent claims she inspires the 'Manhattan' director to make films after appearing in three of his most recent releases.
She said: "I'm not his muse. Every single junket that we've done so far, we always get the muse thing and we always say, 'no', it's not that way.
"Woody and I both appreciate how wonderful it is to work with your friends, and it's fun and we always have a great time when we do it, we entertain each other, we understand each other and we poke each other."
The 23-year-old beauty stars in Allen's upcoming 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' after previously featuring in 2005's 'Match Point' and 'Scoop' in 2006.
Woody recently said he was "totally captivated" by Scarlett when he first met her, but feared she was not old enough for the role in 'Match Point'.
She said: "She was only 19 years old at the time. But I was in a hole, I had to get somebody quickly, and I knew that Scarlett was a great actress and a beauty.
"I hired her and became totally captivated by her. I thought she could simply do anything. She was not only beautiful but also bright, amusing, charming, and gifted."
