Now, years later, Scarlett is finally speaking out to debunk the rumor that she auditioned for Tom after a former Scientology security guard brought it up again on Megyn Kelly Today
"The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning," Scarlett said in a statement provided to E! "I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships. Only a man aka Brendan Tighe would come up with a crazy story like that."
Let Scarlett eat her popcorn in peace from now on, rumor mongers!
