Johansson Blames Del Toro Reports On Sarcastic Comments

LATEST: Actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON blames her own sarcasm for the false reports which linked her to BENICIO DEL TORO.

The LOST IN TRANSLATION beauty, 20, recently denied a heavily circulated story that she and the Puerto Rican actor enjoyed a liaison in an elevator after last year's (FEB04) ACADEMY AWARDS. And she admits that while the reports were definitely false, her own offhand comments could well have been to blame.

She tells TEEN VOGUE, "It's annoying to read things about yourself like, 'She's a slut.' I don't want to censor myself - I don't believe in censoring myself - but when I talk too much about who I'm dating, about that aspect of my life, it can backfire terribly."

And Johansson, currently dating JARED LETO, also has a few things to say about reports she has a particular liking for older men.

She adds, "I like all kinds of people, regardless of what year they were born."
