Scarlett Johansson on her love for SodaStream

'Her' Premiere - The 8th Rome Film Festival

Scarlett Johansson likes bubbles — a lot. The actress admitted as much last Friday evening at the launch event announcing her new role as the global brand ambassador for SodaStream, for which she’ll star in a Super Bowl commercial on Feb. 2.

“I grew up drinking carbonated water. My mom used to mix it with fruit juice instead of [buying] soda. When I moved out of the house and started throwing out my own garbage, I realized how many plastic bottles and cans I was wasting,” she says. “I felt really guilty about that, but I still wanted to drink carbonated water.”

Johansson’s guilt-free solution: SodaStream, the DIY soda maker. “I went online and thought, there’s got to be soda makers, we have been drinking soda for centuries,” says the actress. “I bought mine at Williams Sonoma and my love for SodaStream started.”

Why SodaStream?
It really changed my life. Now I don’t feel guilty about enjoying the beverages that I do at home. I love that I can have a party and not have trash bags full of waste. I’ve been pushing it on my friends and family for years and given it as housewarming gifts. I believe so much in [the product’s] environmental values and its health initiatives. It just fits so perfectly to my lifestyle.

What’s your favorite flavor combo to fizz up?
I drink a lot of sparkling water more than anything. I like the diet flavors because they’re made with Stevia and Splenda, so it’s not Aspartame. We did the grapefruit and orange, which was a combination I like, and the Dr. Pete, which is kind of a spicier Dr. Pepper flavor.
Do you spend a lot of time in the kitchen?
I like to cook. I don’t eat red meat, so I make a lot of turkey meatloaf, chicken chili and that kind of stuff. I make a lot of American comfort foods, but the healthy version of them.
