Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has embraced the English custom of afternoon teas, after filming two back-to-back movies in London.

The LOST IN TRANSLATION star, 21, has decided the British teatime custom is such a good idea she may have to introduce it into her own lifestyle.

She says, "The way the English allocate a certain time of day for tea and sandwiches is wonderful.

"I would use that excuse for anything I could put jam on!"
