Renowned Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson along with her
husband, Romain Dauriac, are all set to open a gourmet popcorn shop
in the heart of Paris, this weekend.
The 31-year-old Avengers actress is excited to finally turn her
dream into reality. She said she always wanted to open a food store
in Europe and bring the American delicacies to the people here.
She said that she has chosen the Marais area of the city for
now, to start the chain.
"It has been a dream of mine and my family for several years to
bring our favorite American snack to our favorite European City!" Johansson said in a statement while talking to the press.
"I am so excited to introduce Yummy Pop, a labor of love and
Epicurean enthusiasm. My hope is for Yummy Pop to become a Parisian
snacking staple and a symbol of friendship between my two most
beloved cities, Paris and New York." Johansson added further.
Johansson also added that she has chosen Paris for opening her
popcorn shop mainly because of her journalist husband Romain
Dauriac, is a citizen of Paris.
A source close to Johansson revealed that the Paris popcorn
shopwill however, be closed shortly after the opening so that
"they can fine tune everything with what they learn from customers
before the grand opening, which is likely to be before the end of
