Last week, it was announced that Scarlett Johansson, the famous American actress, was going to open a popcorn shop in Le Marais area, on Rue du Roi de Sicile in Paris. Her agent had also mentioned that the actress would personally serve popcorn to customers during the grand opening. This news was hard to believe for many people, but hundreds of curious fans gathered in the street and stood in lines for hours to catch a glimpse of the “Match Point” heroine. The boutique, named Yummy Pop, was supposed to close at around 8 pm, but to everyone’s surprise, Scarlett Johansson arrived around 9:30 pm to serve the most perseverant fans. Those who stayed received autographs and got to take selfies with the actress, who was wearing a striped shirt, perhaps adopting the French look, and a Yummy Pop branded apron. Her French husband, Romain Dauriac, was also behind the counter with her. She enjoyed playing the role of a hostess for a few hours, providing huge publicity for Yummy Pop.
After being in a relationship with Romain Dauriac since 2012 and becoming a mother to little Rose, Scarlett Johansson splits her time between Paris and the United States. However, it’s in the City of Love where the actress has decided to open her popcorn shop, Yummy Pop, bringing an American culinary tradition to France and serving up one of her favorite snacks. If you stop by Yummy Pop, you can indulge in truffle, parmesan, sage, or olive oil flavored popcorn. Although, we can’t promise that Scarlett will be at the cash register when you visit.
