That Time Scarlett Johansson Accidentally Flashed Her Private Parts On A Plane

Celebrities might have all the glitz and glamour they could ever ask for, but they're not infallible. They're human, just like you and me, and they are equally prone to embarrassing and humbling situations in their day-to-day lives. Case-in-point: Scarlett Johansson revealed in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that she once accidentally exposed herself to a random passenger on a plane. The fiasco resulted in quite an ordeal for the Avengers: Infinity War star, but at least it produced a funny story for the rest of us.

To promote the humongous superhero crossover blockbusters hitting theaters in just a couple days, Scarlett Johansson, Dave Bautista, Mark Ruffalo, Danai Gurira and Tom Hiddleston were asked to participate in a fun game of "Guess The Avenger", which tested the celebrity contestants to see how well they know their fellow co-stars. Considering the behemoth movie and huge cast, did this group actually get to know each other? As the clip reveals, the first question asked is which Avenger star once gave a complete stranger quite an eyeful when they accidentally flashed them on an airplane, and it turned out to be Scarlett Johansson herself. Here's how the Black Widow actress explained the embarrassing situation on the late night talk show.

It was unintentional... I was using the bathroom in the plane, as one does, and I guess I didn't lock the door. It happens, occasionally. I don't know. I thought I did. I went to grab the toilet paper and my entire vagina was splayed out -- yes, I said vagina! Deal with it! The guy opens the door, he looks down, and he's like, 'Uh...oh! Oh!' I was like, 'Close the goddamn door!'

It was mortifying enough that Scarlett Johansson unwittingly exposed herself to this random passenger, but the A-list actress found herself equally -- if not more -- embarrassed when she had to walk out of the bathroom and revealed herself as the one who screamed inside it only a moment earlier. Here's how Johansson recounted the uncomfortable walk back to her seat.

I had to open the door and walk past the entire cabin of people that all just heard me [scream]. You know? And then they were like, 'Oh, it was Scarlett who was in there. It was her vagina!

An awkward situation like that would make any flight eventful, no matter where you're going. Knowing it was Scarlett Johansson likely made it quite the trip for everyone else involved. Thankfully, Johansson has found the levity in the situation, and she's not afraid to turn her private dilemma into a public source of hilarity. (Side note: Scarlett Johansson humorously has a history of earning red cheeks on late night talk show games.) Check out the funny and revealing talk show clip below.

Avengers: Infinity War storms into theaters April 27th.
