Amr Waked Kisses Scarlett Johansson

If you go back far enough, his ancestors were also our ancestors, ergo WE kissed ScarJo! High five! We are all Amr Waked.

Egypt hasn't had much to cheer for of late what with the constant drone of political upheaval and not making it to the World Cup but finally, now, we have something every hot blooded male in the country can cheer and shout "AYWAAAAA!" to. Egyptian actor Amr Waked acts alongside the jaw-droppingly gorgeous superstar actress Scarlett Johansson in the blockbuster film Lucy released last week (basically Limitless but with a woman) and in one scene, the lucky star of salmon fishing fame gets to make out with her. It does not matter that this was fake, he actually got to kiss the voluptuous lips of one of the most beautiful women in the world. He has Egyptian blood and if you go back far enough, his ancestors were also our ancestors, ergo WE kissed ScarJo! High five! We are all Amr Waked. 

And just to boot, it's also a wonderful show of compassion and unity from Waked following the media furor that surrounded Johansson after she featured in an ad that promoted SodaStream - a soft drinks manufacturer with a factory based on illegal Israeli settlement land in the occupied West Bank. Way to take one for the team. Check out the kissing scene and the trailer for Lucy below...
