Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow were the star attractions at the Oscar rehearsals last night.
Paltrow breezed into LA's Dolby Theatre almost 20 minutes early for her rehearsal and walked back out a minute later.
She strode to her mark onstage, read through her lines, snapped a couple of selfies and marched out.
Johansson, on the other hand, took her time in Oscar land, laughing with stage hands and smiling at everyone.
Wearing an ivory blouse over slim black trousers, her blonde crop freshly shaven on one side, she reportedly recited her lines perfectly.
"Wow, that was fantastic," the show director's boomed over a loudspeaker.
Waving and flashing a smile, the actress feigned drama as she said to the audience of show workers: "I guess I'll go now."
