Brave Johansson Insists The Show Must Go On Despite Bombings

Actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON is determined not to let London's bombings upset her summer plans in the British capital - in fact she can't wait to get back there.

Currently promoting her new action movie THE ISLAND in her native America, the LOST IN TRANSLATION star is set to return to London, where she is filming WOODY ALLEN's new movie later this week (ends15JUL05) and she has no qualms about her safety.

Like so many London lovers, Johansson was devastated by last Thursday's (07JUL05) terrorist attacks, but she was impressed with the way Londoners came together to help each other in a bid to get back to normal as quickly as possible.

She says, "London is a lovely place to be; it's as safe as any place. The show must go on and everybody is trucking along.

"We're shooting in central London this week and will be for the rest of the film, and I'm staying there. I was here in New York when September 11th (01) happened and it was amazing the unity that people had and how wonderful the police and fire departments were.

"It's the same in London; they were so fast-acting and that alone is enough to make you feel like everything will be OK. That threat is everywhere you go so it's important not to let it change your life."
