Actor Michael Douglas was left astounded upon discovering a surprising familial connection with his Marvel colleague Scarlett Johansson.

The revelation took place during his recent appearance on the renowned PBS series "Finding Your Roots," hosted by Henry Louis Gates Jr., where celebrity ancestral histories are scrutinized.

During the episode, Gates unveiled the unexpected link between the two actors, stating, “Ah! You’re kidding,” as Douglas reacted with disbelief. Gates disclosed that Douglas and Johansson are distant cousins, sharing genetic similarities on four different chromosomes. The connection was traced back to Scarlett’s maternal lineage, leading to Jewish communities in eastern Europe, a fact that Douglas found truly remarkable.

Expressing his astonishment, Douglas exclaimed, “Are you kidding? Oh, that’s amazing. All right. This is cool. This is so cool.” Despite not sharing screen time in the film, both actors appeared in the 2019 blockbuster "Avengers: Endgame," with Johansson reprising her role as Black Widow and Douglas returning as Hank Pym.


Following this revelation, Douglas eagerly anticipates reuniting with Johansson, expressing his excitement by saying, “I look forward to seeing Scarlett next time.” The newfound familial bond has added an extra layer of enthusiasm for the actors as they continue their professional collaboration within the Marvel universe.
