At one time Scarlett Johansson wouldn’t have hit the red carpet without wearing a figure-hugging dress. But on Monday evening the 29-year-old opted for something decidedly less revealing as she attended the French premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Paris.
The actress, who is expecting her first child, instead wore a sharp red trouser suit with a loose black top which hid her growing baby bump. While just a few days before she had been more than happy to show off the first signs of her bump in a stunning dress, it seems she fancied keeping things hidden this time round.
Her choice of outfit was however still stunning and she wore her blonde hair piled above her head in an elegant up-do. Keeping her look simple she wore an silver and black necklace, a pair of gold peep-toe heels and a fun clutch bag featuring a pair of red lips on them. While Scarlett, who was not joined by her French fiance Romain Dauriac for the occasion, has kept mum about the pregnancy – others haven’t been quite so tight-lipped.
The Marvel Studios President of Production confirmed her maternity in an interview about The Avengers: Age of Ultron‘ script. Kevin Feige told media: ‘Well my first reaction was I was very happy for her and very excited for her. ‘My second reaction was we’ve got to move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise. But we didn’t change the script at all, which is sort of the most important things for us in terms of the storyline.’
Scarlett is believed to be around five months along with her pregnancy and is expected to give birth around August. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the follow up to 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger and sees Scarlett reprised her role as Natasha Romanoff/ the Black Widow.
It takes place two years after the events of the first film, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is trying to adjust to normal society. However, after a S.H.I.E.L.D. compatriot is assailed, Rogers becomes entangled in a mystery that may endanger the globe. Together with Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett) Captain America attempts to uncover the growing machination while fending off hired hit men.
When the entire scheme is discovered, Captain America and the Black Widow must recruit the aid of the Falcon and soon encounter an unanticipated and powerful adversary — the Winter Soldier.
