Scarlett Johansson by Brandon Hurst (Artnik)
I first wrote about this unofficial biography about a year ago. It looks like it has finally been published after some delay. Check out Amazon.co.uk to order your copy.

Scarlett Johansson: Portrait of a Rising Star by Chris Roberts (Carlton Books)
This biography, also unofficial, will be released September 3, 2007 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Check out the pretty cover on the right. Here is its description:

Born in 1985 in New York, young Scarlett Marie Johansson has already achieved a cinematic career of stellar proportion, swiftly becoming an icon to both genders. Ubiquitous as the face of Calvin Klein, L’Oreal and Reebok, and described as the new Marilyn Monroe by Vogue magazine, she’s also proved her mettle as a quality thespian, starring in movies as diverse as literary, intelligent Woody Allen features, gung-ho action romps like Michael Bay’s The Island, and of course, alternative, hip fare like the film which made her name known the world over, Sofia Coppola’s much-lauded Lost in Translation. Searching for the essence of her luminous star quality, this book takes a critical look at her work, and traces her transformation from talented child actress to Hollywood icon.

    Scarlett T. Johansson is listed in the facts so is there any truth to ‘Scarlett Marie Johansson’. Wonder where that came from anyways.

    Hehe, the eternal middle name mystery continues. 😉

    Yes, the Lost in Translation credits name her “Scarlett T. Johansson” so I consider that a more reliable source than the internet gossip.

    “marie” came from wikipedia – there’s some guy on therewho likes to sneak around adding Marie as a middle name for young actresses…

    Maybe we’ll all be better informed by waiting for an “authorized” biography. The description of Chris Robert’s book indicates Scarlett was born in 1985, but anyone who visits this site with any regularity certainly knows Scarlett and her twin brother were born in November 1984.

    What is that “T” of the middle name ?
    PS: Sara is right!!

    One more thing: what about Scarlett “Johanssen”?
    I see that in many places too.

    unofficial biographies of some one who protects her privacyas much as scarlett does? these will probably be filled with info the authors just picked up surfing the web. both will probably be filled with inacuracies and baseless gossip.

    I’m with econchino.
    These books (well at least one of them) willl probably be cut and paste jobs. Full of tabloid scraps and (yawn!) the recent Timberlake nonsense. She was born in 1985 and her middle name is Marie? That’s two inaccuarracies to start with….

    I remember being told/hearing/reading that her middle name is Ingrid. So – assuming that she has no other middle names – she’d be Scarlett Ingrid Johansson.
    Ignoring that Ingrid is kind of icky, it has a very old-Hollywood-1920’s glamour, no?
