The war of words between Siri and Scarlett Johansson is heating up. Last week, Buzzfeed discovered that if if you ask Siri if she is her (a reference to the Siri-like artificial intelligence in the Spike Jonze film Her), she'll respond with a rather snarky dismissal of Johansson's work. Vanity Fair was conducting an interview with the actress and happened to bring up Siri's diss, and Johansson played along. "I feel like I've been betrayed," she joked. "The other day I asked Siri how I looked and she said, 'You're the fairest of them all.' So she's obviously playing both sides. What the hell? What a backstabber, man."

Siri's not the only one poking fun at Johansson turn in Her — the actress just announced that she would become a brand ambassador for SodaStream, and executives at the company made a little joke at her expense. "Why don't you make a SodaStream machine that speaks and use her voice," creative executive Alex Bogusky reportedly asked SodaStream's executives. If we end up with talking seltzer-makers in the not-too-distant future, you know who to blame.
