Scarlett Johansson is set to travel to Iraq to visit US servicemen later this year.
She said: "I get letters from soldiers my age and younger. I wanted to go to Iraq in October, but it may be a little later.
"I don't know if I will sing for them. I'll probably just take to the stage and ooze sex appeal and hang around."
Scarlett, who has been compared to Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe by director Woody Allen, often feels she was born in the wrong decade.
The 22-year-old actress explained: "Maybe Woody is just blinded by my shock of platinum hair, or maybe it's my body type. Honestly, I've never really understood the comparison. I absolutely love Marilyn Monroe, but I don't see it.
"A lot of times I feel like I was born in the wrong era. It was a very glamorous time from the 30s to the 60s, a really exciting time to be alive. You had Elizabeth Taylor, Dylan Thomas, artists, Lee Strasberg, studio heads - creative people. They worked in a different way then. Actors really homed in on their craft, bonding and living an artist's life. I wish I could have experienced that."
Meanwhile the blond star also revealed she wants to adopt a child.
'The Nanny Diaries' star can't wait to settle down and start a family and is planning to open her home to an underprivileged child.
Scarlett told USA Today newspaper: "I would love to have kids. I haven't really figured it out yet. I can see having a kid or two. And I would like to adopt children. I think I'm tender with children. I got along really well with them. They make me feel young, like you're nine-years-old again."
The 22-year-old actress, who has been linked to a series of young
heartthrobs including Josh Harnett and Jared Leto, dotes on her 71-year-old
'Match Point' director.
She told Vogue magazine: "I'd sew the hems of his pants if he asked me to."
Woody recently admitted he finds Scarlett "criminally sexy". Praising his
current movie muse, he said: "She is unlike anyone who has come before her,
and while she is a much stronger actress in every way, there is a tiny bit
of Marilyn Monroe in her."
Scarlett also denied rumours she is dating pop heartthrob Justin Timberlake.
The actress, who plays his love interest in the video for his new single
'What Comes Around', insisted: "Of course it's not true. We had fun
together, but it's not like the first time I've ever hung out with him. I
think this happens because we're both single and in the spotlight."

jeans, and starred in 'Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult'.

She was working as the spokesmodel for diet pill Trimspa when she died.
CEO of Trimspa, Alex Goen, said: "Today, Anna Nicole Smith's grief-stricken
and tumultuous personal life came to an end. Anna came to our company as a
customer, but she departs it as a friend. Anna knew both the joy of giving

Anna Nicole also did a lot of work for animal rights group PETA.
PETA released a statement saying: "PETA is extremely upset by the news of
Anna Nicole Smith's untimely death. She was a great friend to animals and
used every opportunity to speak out against senseless cruelty. We always
thought Anna Nicole was a perfect fit for PETA because, just like us, she
not only hated cruelty to animals and loved her dog. It is a tragedy when
anyone passes away before their time, but with Anna Nicole, animals have
lost a true hero and PETA has lost a good friend. We will miss her."

Elvis Presley bedded Marilyn Monroe within minutes of meeting her, it has
The late rocker's former agent, Byron Raphael, kept details of the secret
one-night stand quiet for 50 years, but has now revealed all in a US
He claims bosses at the William Morris Agency wanted Presley and Monroe to
date for a publicity stunt in 1956, but the actress refused.
Raphael said: "He was very embarrassed, but I think she turned him down
because she felt it was too public."
However, Presley refused to "give up" and two weeks later he asked Raphael
to "pick up Marilyn" and bring her to his room at the Beverly Wilshire
Raphael added to the New York Post newspaper: "When he saw her, they came
together and, without saying a word, started kissing. I was in shock and I
didn't know what to do. Then Marilyn, who was 10 years older, said, 'You're
pretty good for a guitar player.'
"After two minutes, they went into the bedroom and I didn't know if I was
supposed to leave, or stay and wait for them, so I just dozed off. The next
thing I knew I was startled awake by the door opening and I dove behind the
bar. And they both walked out stark naked."
The agent says he initially kept quiet about the rendezvous because he knew
it was the "sort of thing that could ruin their careers" and Monroe was also
still married to Arthur Miller.
