Stephen Colbert welcomed Scarlett Johansson to The Late Show Wednesday.

Scarlett was his first female guest since his grand debut Tuesday, and she flew in from Europe just for the occasion. "You jetted in from Paris to New York to do a television show?" Colbert asked. Scarlett said she was excited to back in the Big Apple, though she has a soft spot for the City of Light, where she now lives with her husband, Romain Dauriac, and their 1-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac.

"There's not a day that goes by that I don't walk down the street and go, 'Wow, this is such an incredibly beautiful place,'" the Lucy star said of Paris.

The actress later clarified, "I absolutely love New York. I haven't left."

Scarlett revealed that she has been learning French, although she prefers to speak English because it helps her win arguments with Romain. "When you're in a relationship with somebody you want to speak whatever language is easiest to get your ideas out as quickly as possible, so you can argue your point," she explained.

Stephen said Scarlett is "a movie star, a model, a singer and a superhero," noting that she is "all the things people wanna be when they grow up." After he asked if "there something that you haven't done that you wanna do," the Captain America: Civil War star replied, "I always wanted to be a dermatologist."

Later, Scarlett joined Stephen for "Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars."

The two took turns asking each other the following questions:

• "You think there's a difference between living and being alive?"

• "Would you rather have feet for hands or hands for feet?"

• "What do you think Oprah's doing right now?"

• "What do you want to have happen to your body when you die?"

• "What time is it?"

Watch the video above to see Scarlett and Stephen's surprising responses.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
