London (ANI): Actress Scarlett Johansson is set to host the Nobel Peace concert, which will be headlined by Diana Ross. Johansson said that she was 'truly honoured' to have been invited, and paid tribute to the winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize, Martti Ahtisaari.
"Johansson's compassion and influence would help to spread a message of peace," BBC quoted Nobel committee member Geir Lundestad, as telling the Associated Press.
Also on the bill are Canadian musician Feist, US country singer Dierks Bentley and Nigerian performer Seun Kuti. Meanwhile Johansson was also in news for tying the knot with beau Ryan Reynold.
