Scarlett Johansson again named 'sexiest woman alive' by Esquire 

Scarlett Johansson's move to France has made her "aggressive" towards the locals.

The actress - who relocated from the US to Paris with her French fiancé Romain Dauriac last year- is astonished by how "terribly rude" other residents of the city are when it comes to walking through the streets, so she has developed a tough attitude in a bid to stop being "body checked" by passers-by.

During an appearance on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' on Wednesday, Scarlett - who plays Black Widow in 'The Avengers' movies - said: "I live in the left bank; it's close to the Latin Quarter. I like to walk around but it's frustrating because people there don't have ... I mean I'm from New York and I assume that I'm an amazing walker because I'm from New York. It's a wonderful dance on the street ... it's a choreography walking down the street. When I got there I assumed it was this provincial town like they don't know how to walk, people don't walk here.

"They walk everywhere! And the fact they are just body checking me as they come ... So now I just do a stare down from halfway down the block. I've started getting really aggressive with people now. And I don't care! I'm a superhero for Christ sake."

Though the 29-year-old beauty loves living in Paris, she admits some aspects of her life in Europe are "annoying" - particularly the "rude" local residents.

She said: "Of course when I first got there I thought people were not that whole kind of rude Parisian thing. You know, people aren't rude they are wonderful. Well that was before I was a mainstay there and then people decided that once I wasn't going away they could just be really terribly rude to me."

She added: "I decided to take the plunge and move to Paris and it's great, I love it. Some of the stardust twinkles warn off a little bit now and all the things that you thought were charming before are just [annoying]."
