High school was half a lifetime ago, but actress Scarlett Johansson, 28, still remembers her SAT score.

The "Don Jon" star sat down for a chat with director Darren Aronofsky for Interview magazine, and the question-and-answer format made her think of that long-ago exam.

She asked Aronofsky for her SAT score, and the director at first said he didn't remember. But Johansson recalled hers, from her days at New York's Professional Children's School.

" I think the way it worked when I took them was that they were out of 1,600, so maybe you'd get a 1,240 if you were a smarty-pants," she said. "I got a 1,080, which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn't answer half of the math questions."

Aronofsky later confessed he did know his SAT score, which was 1,360. "You suck," said Johansson. "Damn it ... Now I feel like a big dummy with 1,080."

In addition to "Don Jon," Johansson can also be heard as the voice of a computer that Joaquin Phoenix falls for in the new movie "Her," which opens in most U.S. markets Dec. 18.
