Scarlett Johansson missed out on meeting David Bowie when he headed into the studio to record backing vocals for her debut album – because she was busy filming a Woody Allen.
The 24-year-old was in Spain filming scenes for Vicky Cristina Barcelona when Bowie dropped by the studio to lay down his vocals on two tracks for her 2008 LP Anywhere I Lay My Head – and Johansson was gutted she missed out on the opportunity to see him.
She told Glamour magazine, “Unfortunately, I was in Spain shooting when he came in. I said to Woody: ‘If you knew what I sacrificed to be on this set.’”
The actress is close to Allen, who has cast her in three films – but insists she doesn’t try and impose her musical tastes on the director.
Johansson added: “One day, I said something about Neil Young, and he was like ‘Neil Young… Neil Young… who’s Neil Young?’ I was like ‘Who’s Neil Young?!’ It’s impossible. He won’t even eat a new kind of sandwich.”
