09:30 12 August 2005
Scarlett Johansson and Ewan McGregor have been slated by the producers of their new movie 'The Island' amid reports it is a box office flop.
Producers Walter Parkes and wife Laurie McDonald have admitted the acting duo - who play lovers in the sci-fi drama - gave a lack-lustre performance.
They wrote on their website: "Listen, those are the superstars of the future, not the superstars of the present."
McDonald went further by writing of stunning Scarlett: "Even lesser television actresses, quite honestly, would have more connection to that audience."
Meanwhile, Scarlett has revealed Ewan kissed like a teenager when they locked lips in the movie.
She revealed: "He kissed me like a 16-year-old schoolboy."
However, Scarlett - who was recently rumoured to be rekindling her romance with handsome actor Jared Leto - admits she did enjoy her love scenes with Ewan.
She said recently: "I get paid to make out with Ewan McGregor and roll around in bed all day. It's a hard job but somebody has to do it."
