It is our aim to bring you all the latest news, photos, information and much more on Scarlett's career. We hope you enjoy your stay!

When friends asked Steve and Wish Nails about their attractive guest, they said she was in a band from Sweden. When People magazine called about the same mysterious blonde, the Nails developed sudden amnesia.

But when that house guest is actress Scarlett Johansson, who Esquire Magazine named as the “Sexiest Woman Alive” in 2006, the secret can only last so long.

“The first thing she did was go downtown to a restaurant and she got recognized,” said Wish Nails. “It was a real drag because people were saying stuff to her like, ‘I don’t believe it’s you. Take off your glasses.’
“That was the last time she went out to eat. But the rest of the trips were to Wal-Mart and Albertsons. When I tell you she went to Wal-Mart and Albertsons, she went a lot.”

Wal-Mart, margaritas and music was the life for Johansson, who spent 33 days in Maurice recording here debut CD at Dockside Studio. Owned by Steve and Wish Nails, Dockside is a 12-acre recording complex hidden along the Vermilion River.

Besides local zydeco and Cajun bands, Dockside has recorded B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Irma Thomas, Gatemouth Brown and Mark Knopfler during its 20 years. These stars and Grammy winners chose Dockside for the warm sound created by its vintage, analog recording gear.

Johansson, star of The Horse Whisperer, Girl with a Pearl Earring and other films, worked from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily in the studio with producer Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Celebration also performed on the recordings, which Steve Nails describes as cinematic rock.

“It’s like theater, big screen,” said Nails, who sat in on all the sessions. “Lots of heavy bass tones in it.

“Without a bass guitar, we used all kind of different instruments to create these sounds. It was a great experiment. Very avant garde.”

“She sounds like Marilyn Monroe,” added Nails.

The Nails said besides the early sighting, few people recognized Johansson.

They treated her with crawfish boils, fireworks, bonfires and poolside margarita parties at the studio guest house. Boyfriend Ryan Reynolds visited for two weeks.

Studio manager Korey Richey, who often brought Johansson around town, described her as a down-to-earth “studio mom” as she worked with the musicians.

“She made sure they ate and had their fruit salad,” said Richey. “She thought Soop’s (Restaurant) in Maurice had some of the best food. She had the fried shrimp po-boy and just moaned the whole time.”

Steve Nails predicts her CD will go platinum and win a Grammy, which would be the seventh for Dockside. He looks forward to working with her again.

“She was sweet as cherry pie. She was wonderful. She’s like my stepdaughter.”

    Scarlett is featured on the cover of Issue 15 2019 As If Magazine promoting Avengers: Endgame.
    Are there actors whom you look to as particular models for how you consider the job, consider the profession, or possibly approach your work? Any actors you’ve worked with, or from any other time? We have the whole history of filmed performances available to us now. There were actors during the later Golden Age of Hollywood era that had a certain confidence, which I think was due to the force of this new, naturalistic style of performance. I’m thinking of actors like James Dean, Natalie Wood, and Marlon Brando. These actors were starting a revolution in Hollywood with screen acting. They had a very messy, unpredictable, and thrilling aspect to their performances, and watching them is thrilling because of it.
