Last Wednesday (08) Mark attended in New York the amfAR Gala. He presented his Avengers co-star Scarlett Johansson with an award for her work on the subject of HIV/AIDS.
Mark praised Scarlett for her dedication to philantropic work.
“Scarlett is no armchair humanitarian, she’s the real deal.It’s probably no surprise to you that we live in turbulent times, but if there are any young men or women out there that are looking for a role model, they need look no further than Scarlett Johansson.”
