Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have known each other for as long as one can remember. Their first movie together was The Perfect Score in 2004, and their upcoming 2023 movie Ghosted is the latest addition to their roster. The duo has worked together in several movies and mainly with the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Black Widow and Captain America.
Because of all the projects they have done with each other, the two have grown quite close in these long years and their on-screen chemistry has raised many questions for the audience. However, they address it as being friends who know so much about each other over a long period, allowing them to be able to understand each other better.
Chris Evans And Scarlett Johansson’s History
Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson have done a total of eight movies together, with the ninth one on its way to release soon. The two hit it off immediately with their first movie together, meeting as teenagers in The Perfect Score in 2004 and growing together after that. Their latest work Avengers: Endgame was their biggest blockbuster to date.
Having known each other for over a decade, a lot of rumors about Johansson and Evans being involved romantically have sprouted, especially after they played lovers in 2007’s The Nanny Diaries. Their chemistry as the superheroes, Natasha Romanoff and Steve Rogers only fueled the fire amongst fans. These were, however, shut down just as quickly when both their friendship and intimacy as long-term friends became more public.
“It’s really a result of 10 years of knowing somebody and being able to have a kind of intimacy with them that I think you get from just spending a lot of time with somebody and knowing their soft underbelly.”
The two are no strangers to being asked about their connection with each other and are very open about their friendship. Something similar also happened in an old episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The Captain and the Widow in Ellen
In an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host, Ellen, asked the actress how much she knew Evans during the promotion of their fifth movie together, Avengers: Age of Ultron. She claimed that she knew him since they were 17 and focused on the fact that she knew her co-star a little too well.
Much like her usual tricks, DeGeneres then surprised Johansson with Chris Evans bouncing out of a box from right behind her, giving her an unexpected fright. After the adrenaline had settled, she again asked the same question, followed by a game where the host would ask the two a series of questions about each other to test their knowledge.
This led to an unexpected turn as while asking them, photos of Evans were presented to the actress where he was barely wearing anything, proving to be a distraction for the Lucy actress. Whether they were purely there to distract her or not, they did seem to work as she was finding it difficult to answer some of the questions, to which she then proceeded to compliment the actor’s distracting ability.
