London (ANI): Starlet Scarlett Johansson not only resembles actress Marilyn Monroe in looks, but she is also following in the late fifties screen siren"s footsteps by performing for the U.S. troops. The Hollywood starlet is set to fly to Iraq to perform for US troops, like Marilyn once did in Korea in 1954 during her honeymoon with hubby Joe DiMaggio, to cheer up American servicemen. The 22-year-old has signed up for her morale-boosting mission and will visit soldiers in Iraq this autumn.

The Lost in Translation actress insisted that she feels 'lucky" to be able to do something for the soldiers. “I"m so lucky that I have an opportunity to make some sort of difference," the Daily Express quoted Johansson, as saying. It seems that the actress who will be given high-level security for her trip will put up a good show for the soldiers. “I"ll probably just take the stage, hang around and ooze sex appeal," she said.
