Scarlett’s 21st Birthday Was An Utter Disaster


Actress Scarlett Johansson has every reason to hate surprises since her 21st birthday surprise party thrown by her family and friends was a disaster.

She was hoping to have a small celebration for her 21st birthday, when she is eligible to drink in America. The star was looking for a massive traditional alcohol-fuelled party, but a small intimate dinner with her loved ones.

She said to Queen Latifah on her talk show on Tuesday, April 1st,

“I don’t like jokes, I don’t like surprises. I’ve had bad experiences. The last time I had something like that, it was my 21st birthday and I had to get up at 5:30 AM the next day to work.”

“I went out to dinner with my family, we’re driving home and my friend Sarah had a party at a nightclub every Thursday night and my mum said, ‘Oh, you gonna go to your friend’s nightclub? It’s a Thursday night.’ And I said, ‘No way, I gotta get up at 5:30 AM. She was like, ‘You should go, you should go out drinking with your friends!”

“We got into this huge fight, which ended with my step-father pushing me out of the car, into a nightclub – I had a bleeding fingernail from it.”

“I knew what awaited me. It was lots of love and presents and I hated it. I hated every minute of it. I just get so embarrassed. It was awful. I went into the party, went straight to the bar – drank like mummy told me to – stayed until 2:00 AM and went to work.”
