Istanbul, Aug 18 () - American actress Scarlett Johansson and her husband Romain Dauriac have lashed out at reporters in Turkey after their low-key Istanbul vacation was exposed and they became hounded by paparazzi.
Three-time Golden Globe Award-nominee Johansson enjoyed wine by the Bosphorus with her husband Dauriac, a French journalist, in Istanbul’s Ortaköy neighborhood.
Hoping to keep their vacation low-key, the couple politely rejected a number of requests from Johansson’s fans to take pictures.
However, after hearing of the couple’s whereabouts, local tabloid journalists soon arrived at Ortaköy to photograph Johansson and her husband.
Pursued by photographers, the Hollywood actress hid her face under a shawl that she hastily bought from one of the vendors in Ortaköy’s local bazaar, while her husband lashed out at taxi drivers who would not stop to pick them up.
When the couple finally managed to get into a taxi, Dauriac gave a middle-finger gesture to harassing photographers.
Johansson and Dauriac got married in Montana in 2014 and have a baby daughter named Rose Dorothy.
