Johansson wins at Rome Film Fest

Scarlett Johansson has won the prestigious best actress award at the Rome Film Festival.

The Hollywood star was recognised for her performance in Spike Jonze's film Her - although she doesn't actually appear onscreen.

The 28-year-old actress plays Samantha, the voice of a computer operating system, so she is heard but not actually seen.

Scarlett's Dolce And Gabbana ad co-star Matthew McConaughey, 44, picked up the coveted best actor trophy.

He was honoured for the Dallas Buyers Club, a real life tale which sees the actor play a man who began a drug smuggling operation after being diagnosed with HIV.

Best director went to Kiyoshi Kurosawa for Sebunsu Kodo (Seventh Code) and best film went to Tir by Alberto Fasulo.
