Scarlett Johansson and her daughter were "pursued dangerously and stalked" when heading to their hotel after her Jimmy Kimmel Live taping session Monday night.

The actor recounted the incident to USA Today, saying, that her car was followed by "five cars full of men with blacked-out windows who were running red lights and putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk so they could follow me to find out where I was staying and subsequently stalk me and my young daughter for the duration of my stay."

Unfortunately, Scarlett added that, "all of this is perfectly legal."
