Leapin' lizards!

Scarlett Johansson, 28, as famous for her gorgeous, sexy looks as for her movie roles, recently shared a few of her favorite Yuletide memories with Us Weekly.

"The most memorable Christmas present I ever received was when I was 8 years old. I really wanted a pet lizard for Christmas, and my parents said, 'No.' When Christmas Eve came around, my mom and dad led me into their bedroom and the lights were off except a glowing terrarium with my new lizard inside. I was so excited! I had him for eight years," says the actress, who is now the brand ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana makeup and fragrance.

Nowadays, Johansson is into animals that are a bit cuddlier. "I always ask my friends and family to buy a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped," explains the Avengers star, who is also an ambassador for Oxfam. "Purchasing an alpaca or a goat or a farm essentials kit…are totally unique gifts that remind us that giving is receiving."
