Scarlett's most extravagant gift wasn't from husband

Friday December 23, 2011

Scarlett Johansson has opened up about the most extravagant present she's ever received - but it wasn't from ex-husband Ryan Reynolds.

The We Bought A Zoo star was given a piece of "lovely" vintage jewellery - once owned by Marilyn Monroe - by a mystery actress.

She explained: "One time there was another lovely actor, I'm a huge fan of hers. I'd never met her before."

She continued: "The next day I came home and there was a box, and it was Marilyn Monroe's Miriam Haskell necklace that she had worn and that this actor had bought at an auction, and she had gifted it to me."

Haskell was a costume jewellery designer whose pieces were owned by the likes of Joan Crawford, Lucille Ball and Wallis Simpson.

Scarlett described the gift as "very extravagant and lovely and thoughtful."
