Scarlett Johansson is the new face of Moet & Chandon’s expensive bubbly.

Frédéric Cumenal, the head of Moet & Chandon, said Johansson was "the obvious choice."

"She, like Moet, has a magical story to tell and makes people dream. "She is a true icon of celebration — refreshingly spontaneous, generous, glamorous, and she lives life to the fullest both on-screen and off."

Scarlett is also taking a page from Angelina Jolie's action-babe career handbook and has just been offered the part of the sexy Black Widow in "Iron Man 2."

According to the Daily Beast, the salary is a bit low, only about $250,000, That's reportedly what Marvel Studios offered Johansson and Mickey Rourke to be in the film. Also starring in "IM2: are Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Samuel L. Jackson and Don Cheadle.

Well, however low the salary is — thanks to the recession and California’s financial problems — even big-name stars aren’t turning up their noses at smaller paychecks.

And Scarlett  — who has never been known as a big gym bunny — is already hitting the iron to get in shape for the demanding role


She was spotted working out this morning at Fitness Factory in West Hollywood with her trainer, Bobby Strom. ScarJo is working out with Bobby three times a week (at least) with a combo of cardio and weights.

“She spent 10 minutes on the Elipticore and was really working up a sweat,” a Dish Rag spy says. "But she already looks amazing, even with her cap on her red hair, in a vintage T and three-quarter-length tights."

Her new husband, Ryan Reynolds (who first trained with Bobby for his role in "Blade Trinity," right) was also there working out. Bobby got Ryan in shape for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" too.

And Ryan may have even advised his gorgeous wife Scarlett on how important it is to get into shape for these action roles. Forget those period bodice-rippers, honey. Go for the big action bucks!

He’s just wrapped "X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and there’s talk about a possible spin-off for Deadpool, his character in the film.

We could totally see this hot couple in a steamy love scene in a big action film.

How about you?
