Johansson bored by British press

Hollywood beauty Scarlett Johansson labelled the British press "dumb" after attending the London premiere of her new movie Match Point on Sunday.

The Lost In Translation star was full of smiles as she posed for photos and gave interviews, but a microphone at a press conference on Monday picked up a private conversation Johansson had with her co-star Matthew Goode.

British newspaper The Independent reports she said: "Oh my God, I didn't see you at all last night. What did you think? I thought the whole thing was awful.

"None of the British journalists had seen the movie and they were all asking me the dumbest questions."

And she was less than impressed by the after-screening party: "It was so stiff, I left really early."
