Scarlett Johansson, the new USD4 million face of cosmetics company L'Oreal, is the latest celebrity who longs to be an archaeologist.
However, if you ever find yourself digging next to the Lost in Translation star, you might want to offer her some discreet advice on artefact identification and which tools she should be using.
In an interview she said: 'If I weren't making movies, I'd be an archaeologist, looking for fossils. I love ancient Egypt. Cut to me in 120- degree heat, picking at a rock with a four- inch needle.'
Have you spotted an interview with a celebrity who says they'd rather be an archaeologist? Write in and let us know. Or are you a digger who would like to swap lives with Scarlett Johansson?
