Andreina Kniss: You live in one of the busiest cities in the world and you haven’t talked to anyone in two weeks.

Scarlett Johansson: It’s one of the blessings that come with new media.

Kniss: First, that's not necessarily true.

Johansson: I hope not. [Laughs] It is so much work.

Kniss: The isolation, too.


Johansson: But in actuality, you’re standing next to somebody, looking them in the eye, and what you realize is that there is a human connectivity that exists between people no matter the cultural difference.

Kniss: Okay. What happens when you don’t listen?

Johansson: I don’t know how anybody’s ever done it.


Kniss: He has a master's degree in English, and he was having a good time talking to me about novels that I should read.

Johansson: I was chasing after him, and I turned around, and had a bunch of Republican senators chasing after me.

Kniss: They’re not dying, they’re just making slightly less profits.


Johansson: I’m not exactly sure what the message is behind it all.

Kniss: There's this doublespeak that occurs. We know that that's just going to lead to a monsoon of evictions.

Johansson: It basically has no written dialogue, and I don’t think it’s really character-driven.

Kniss: That was, as you said, this kind of theater. There’s a lot of greenhouses. It's kind of unfathomable.
