Never mind her enviable bone structure, pouty lips and voluminous hair–or the weeks of hardcore training she endured to get in shape for her role as a catsuit-clad spy in Iron Man 2Scarlett Johansson chalks up her famous good looks to her glam squad. “Working with these incredible hair and makeup teams, you go in looking like a schmoe, and you come out like a movie star,” V magazine‘s June cover star says. The 25-year-old actress, who despite a busy schedule lighting up the Broadway stage and the big screen has found time to appear in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Louis Vuitton, L’Oreal and Mango, says, “You go through the works, and then you’re like this perfectly prepared sausage…no one ever sees what goes in.” Sorry, Scarlett, while we don’t doubt the talent of your stylists and makeup artists, we’d hardly compare you to a link of kielbasa! For the full interview, pick up the June issue of V magazine, on newsstands May 11. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
