Watch: Scarlett Johansson & Colin Jost's Road to Marriage

Scarlett Johansson's daughter wasn't exactly thirsty for more after seeing her mom appear in a movie that most people probably don't even realize is on the film star's resume. 

During her visit to Late Night on Monday, July 12, Scarlett told host Seth Meyers that she recently watched Home Alone 3 with 6-year-old daughter Rose, who she shares with ex-husband Romain Dauriac. Much to the 36-year-old Black Widow actress' chagrin, Rose wasn't particularly taken aback to learn that Scarlett has a role in the oft-forgotten 1997 sequel film. 

When asked about having recently showed Rose one of her formative projects, Scarlett explained, "I guess it wasn't intentional. We went through the series—we did Indiana Jones. Then we watched Back to the Future. And then, of course, naturally we did Home Alone. And I happened to be in the third Home Alone movie, and so I didn't say anything to her because I thought she would make a big deal out of it."

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Home Alone

Scarlett continued, "Not surprisingly, she didn't pick up on it right away. I had to really, like—'See who that is?' She's like, 'Whatever. Is that you?' I was like, 'It's me, your momma.' And she was like, 'Oh, OK. Whatever.'"

The Oscar nominee, who wed Colin Jost in October, went on to admit that Home Alone 3's "plot is a little thin," leading Seth to quip, "I feel like critics have always said the third is the best of the Home Alone movies." Indeed, the third film was the first in the franchise to not include the original core cast members, such as Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci and Catherine O'Hara

Scarlett then joined in on the self-deprecating fun by adding, "They often say that the third of every installment is the best one."
