Scarlett Johansson nearly overflowed her stunning Altier Versace gown at the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new idie movie “Under the Skin.” She plays an alien, which may explain why Scarlett looked out of this world.

The 28-year-old actress’s off-the-shoulder black dress recalled Old-Hollywood glamour on the Sala Grande red carpet.

The gown’s fitted bodice and gathered waist accentuated her voluptuous curves, while an equally stunning diamond and topaz Bulgari High Jewelery necklace accentuated her ample cleavage.

Johansson also reignited rumors that she and boyfriend Romain Dauriac are engaged by wearing a huge diamond ring on her left hand. Scarlett, however, has insisted through her reps that she’s “not engaged nor close to being engaged.”

Scarlett posed briefly with Dauriac, 30, formerly editor of French magazine Clark, who now runs a creative agency. They announced they were dating in April.

Afterward, she was spotted with “Under the Skin” Director Jonathan Glazer. He’s best known for directing 2005 film “Birth,” starring Nicole Kidman and 2000 film “Sexy Beast,” which earned star Ben Kingsley an Oscar nomination.

In his latest movie, Johansson plays an alien who lands in Scotland and stalks men as her prey. She leads them to their death and maybe drinks some blood along the way. It’s based on a 2001 novel by by Michel Faber.

She’s seems to have a preference for indie flicks, but is also not averse to big-budget epics. She’s been starring in the Marvel series based on its comic heroes and will reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” next year.

She is starring with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in “Don Jon,” a story about the “bridge-and-tunnel” love set in New York City. He’s a sex addict; she’s a good girl. She’s also appearing in a movie next year called “Chef,” a comedy co-starring Sofía Vergara, Dustin Hoffman and John Leguizamo.
