Paris's new famous resident the American star Scarlett Johansson says she has experienced Parisian rudeness since moving to the city to be with her boyfriend, French journalist Romain Dauriac. See what she has to say.

Speaking in an interview on The Late Show with David Letterman, Johansson said that “the stardust twinkles” had started to wear off since she moved to the capital.

The star, famous for her roles in the films Girl with the pearl earring and Lost in Translation, recently moved to Paris to be with her French journalist fiancé Romain Dauriac, who is the former editor of the French urban art magazine Clark.

While she describes the city as “great”, she did have a few complaints to share about the behaviour of Parisian residents.

“I was like, 'People aren't rude, they're wonderful!' That was before I was a mainstay there and then people decided that once I wasn't going away, they could just be rude to me!"

During the interview she also complained of Parisians “body-checking” her.

“I've started getting really aggressive with people now,” she joked.
