Scarlett Johansson Admits to ‘RHONJ’ Inspiration for ‘Don Jon’ Wardrobe

Scarlett Johansson knew exactly where to turn when in need of some New Jersey-flavored inspiration for romantic comedy Don Jon. Long-running show The Real Housewives of New Jersey had a major influence on Johansson during the production of the film. The MCU star borrowed everything from her wardrobe to character quirks for the role.

After co-starring in the smash hit The Avengers in 2012, Johansson’s career surged to the next level. Around this time, she began production on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s directorial debut, Don Jon. The flick tells the story of a young man (Gordon-Levitt) trying to navigate the confusing world of sex and romance. Johansson co-stars as a love interest who helps point Jon in the right direction. Don Jon needed some local authenticity to bring the New Jersey setting to life to capture the right tone.
