BAFTA winner Scarlett Johansson is so enamoured with Britain - she's considering leaving her native America to move to the UK.

The blonde beauty, who won Best Actress In A Leading Role at the ORANGE BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS last night (15FEB04), spent a lot of time in England during filming of Girl with a Pearl Earring.

Johansson told British reporters at the awards show, "Working on a British production makes you realise what the really important things are and what is just hot air.

"I love it here. When the cheques come in I might by myself a small home here to hide away in.

"I love the way you use humour as a show of affection - when someone makes a joke at your expense it so often means that you are now included as a friend."
