Scarlett Johansson is Officially Running a Popcorn Shop in Paris

Scarlett Johansson—actress, singer, popcorn shop owner?

The 31-year-old actress has officially taken on the food industry with her new Yummy Pop snack shop in Paris, which exclusively sells all things popcorn.

The store, located in the trendy district of Marais, boasts six different gourmet flavors, including salt n’ pepper, chocolate strawberry and (Johansson’s personal favorite) truffle parmesan.

The actress was on hand for the shop’s grand opening, donning a white Yummy Pop apron, manning the counter and sneaking fistfuls of the snack for herself.

Popcorn lovers (or, perhaps more realistically, Johansson fans) crammed in front of the small store front on the day of.

The business venture is a joint effort with her husband, French journalist Romain Dauriac, who was also on hand to help out behind the counter.

“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 said in a statement. “It has been a dream of mine and my family for several years to bring our favorite American snack to our favorite European City!”

We’re sold. One ticket to Paris, please!
