In addition, the two actresses starred together in the Woody Allen film “Vicky Christina Barcelona.”

Mango lauded Johansson’s qualities: “extraordinary personality, fun, young” and adding, “She’s Mango’s ideal urban woman, independent and cosmopolitan.” 

Images for the upcoming campaign were shot in Los Angeles by Mario Sorrenti. 

The launch date has yet to be confirmed, according to a Mango spokeswoman.
