Speaking with “Black Swan” director Darren Aronofsky for the October issue of Interview magazine, Scarlett Johansson revealed her self-described "pretty low" SAT score from high school.

Scarlett Johansson on Her SAT Scores: ‘Pretty Low’

She told Aronofsky, "I think the way it worked when I took them was that they were out of 1,600, so maybe you'd get a 1,240 if you were a smarty-pants. I got a 1,080, which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn't answer half the math questions."

Aronofsky confessed later that his SAT score was 1,360. The “Don Jon” actress lamented, "You suck. Damn it... Now I feel like a big dummy with 1,080."

Scarlett also talked about how she got into acting. "I liked to improvise and do weird vocal exercises. I was a major ham -- if you can believe it, Darren... And then puberty hit and I crawled into a dark, cold shell and never left. But I took acting classes. My brother did Little League, and I took acting and singing and tap and all that s--t. Then I got into auditioning."

Success took its time, partly because of Johansson’s deep voice. "I was always terrible at commercials because my voice was so deep. At the age of 9, I sounded like a whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking fool. Wasn't going to sell Jell-O with that voice, you know?"
