Scarlett Johansson says she is "flattered" to be the inspiration behind Katy Perry's hit track 'I Kissed a Girl', and jokes she wants a cut of the record's profits
Scarlett Johansson is "flattered" to have inspired Katy Perry's hit track 'I Kissed a Girl'.
The 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' star - who recently married actor Ryan Reynolds - was unaware she had motivated Katy to pen the risque record.
She said: "I had no idea about the song, but I should get a cut! It's really flattering, but my lips are kind of taken."
Scarlett also spoke about her feud with Lindsay Lohan - which started when Lindsay was given the lead role in 1998 movie 'The Parent Trap' over her and escalated when Lindsay allegedly wrote vulgar words about Scarlett on the wall of a New York toilet - insisting Lindsay is a nobody.
She said: "I really don't know that person. I only met her, like, three times."
Speaking about Lindsay's bathroom scrawlings two years ago, Scarlett added to Allure magazine: "That's what I heard. I don't know what the motivation was behind that. I remember it was something really vulgar - I mean, shockingly so, like, 'Whoa, what, who are you?' "
