November 15, 2020  Abby Comments are off Black Widow, Gallery Updates, Magazines

As well as being on the Marie Claire – Winter 2020 cover Scarlett is on the Marie Claire (Australia) – December 2020 cover with new interview but old photos. I have added in the full digital scans to the gallery and you can read the interview below.

Marie Claire – It’s now common cliché to say 2020 has been a bit shit.

But it’s been even more frustrating for people like Scarlett Johansson. Johansson has been working on her upcoming Marvel epic, Black Widow, since 2010 and was gearing up for the long-awaited release this year only for everything to be derailed by the pandemic. We’ve all had plans canned this year, but to have a project that had already been ten years in the making put on hold – again? That’s next level shit.

And in an exclusive chat for marie claire’s December issue (out now), the actor reveals it’s been hard year all-round. “It’s such an uncertain time and there’s a lot of ups and downs – and anxiety – that comes with that,” she said, speaking to Alley Pascoe from her home in New York. “Like so many people, my life came to a screeching halt. It’s been very challenging.”

Disappointment aside, the actor – who recently got married to comedian and SNL cast member Colin Jost – says she has no regrets. “To me, they feel like a waste of time. That doesn’t mean I don’t wish I had acted differently at times, or knew then what I know now, but that’s different than having regret. I try to make active choices and look back with understanding. Regret keeps you stuck in a place as opposed to taking responsibility, understanding and moving on.”

Johansson serves as executive producer on Black Widow in addition to her starring role as Natasha Romanoff, and says one of the highlights was getting to work with Australian director Cate Shortland. “I’m an enormous fan of Cate’s,” Johansson said. “I felt so thankful every single day that we were working together on this. I was relieved to be in her capable hands, because obviously it was hard – after 10 years in the making – to try to imagine who the person would be to have the vision for this movie. Cate was the single person I could think of.”

Despite the film being a about women, having a woman director and comprising a strong cast of women in Johansson and her co-stars Florence Pugh and Rachel Weisz, Johansson confesses the set wasn’t quite the sisterhood you might imagine, noting the near all-male crew. “Cate would talk about it all the time! She was like, ‘Where’s all the ladies on this thing?’” she said. “Because of circumstance, like where we were shooting [Norway, Budapest, Morocco and England], the set was male, which is not uncommon, unfortunately. Things are changing now, but it’s still very imbalanced a lot of the time. [But] our core cast and our director were a tight-knit group of strong women.”

Ultimately, though, she’s proud to be leading a new guard of complex, powerful superheroes creating a new world of possibilities for young women, including her six-year-old daughter, Rose. “When I was growing up there were no female superheroes,” she explained. “The superhero genre has completely opened up in the past decade. It’s wonderful to see your kids empowered and inspired by role models that are more than you could’ve imagined for yourself. These characters are pushing boundaries and making things seem possible that were not possible when I was a kid.”

She added, “It’s progressive – and fun! My daughter’s so small, so she’s peripherally aware, but I think it has even more impact as children get a little bit older. If you asked [Rose] who would win a fight between Black Widow and Captain America, she would definitely say Black Widow, which is super cool [laughs]. She’s probably partial!”

The digital scans for Scarlett’s new magazine cover for Marie Claire – Winter 2020 with her Black Widow co-star Florence Pugh have now been added in to the gallery for you all. There were no new photos but the interview is a great read and I hope to one day get the photoshoot for this for the site.

October 30, 2020  Abby Comments are off Black Widow, Gallery Updates, Interviews, Magazines

Scarlett and Black Widow co-star Florence Pugh are on the cover of Marie Claire – Winter 2020 with a all new amazing photoshoot and interview. I have added in the magazine cover and first set of outtakes from the shoot to the galley. I hope to have the digital scans soon and here is hoping more outtakes.

Marie Claire – The Call Once upon a weekday (or weekend, because what’s time anymore?), there was Scarlett Johansson, sipping, sipping, a margarita.

All good so far, eh? But, alas, like most things in 2020, it just went bad from there.

A call interrupted her cocktail hour. The word: The release of Black Widow, the sure-shot blockbuster starring Johansson and the magnetic Marvel newcomer Florence Pugh and directed by Cate Shortland—three power women collaborating on a power-women film, asserting their ascendance—was being delayed. It was deflating news, Johansson recalls, though not out of the blue.

Another margarita, you say? Yes, please, and thank you.

“I’d been talking to Kevin Feige”—the president of Marvel Studios—“about it, and our fellow producers, just trying to understand what the landscape was,” says Johansson, 36, with a little resignation now in that unmistakable voice but a little pragmatism too. “We’re all eager to get the movie out, but more important than anything, everybody wants the experience to feel safe, to have people be able to really feel confident about sitting in an enclosed theater.”

We’re on a conference call, because that’s what you do these days—no lunch. That or Zoom, which we did a few weeks ago. Pugh, 24, is with us on the line. Also resigned, also pragmatic. She had just flown from London back to L.A., where she lives, when she got the call.

“I think I probably had a hunch,” she says. “It seemed to me all the fun of summer, and everybody being outside and finally having some relaxed rules, caught up with everyone, obviously, because of the virus. I’m sad that people don’t get to watch it for another half year, but I wasn’t majorly upset because it’s important to look after people right now.”

What they’re saying is, the postponement of a superhero film isn’t the apocalypse. Not this abysmal year nor any other. But ain’t it the pits? Who wouldn’t want to be sitting in a darkened theater right now, loaded with a bucket of fake-buttered popcorn, big soda, sinking into a seat as heart-thumping Marvel action unfolds on the screen?

And this, of all movies—one with strong female characters, strong female actors, a strong female director. A movie that’s both fun and important. So what happens now?

The Movie

We first chatted over computer screens. Pugh, after many months grounded by COVID-19, had traveled to London and Zoomed from her office, a dimly lit room with framed art hung high on the walls and opened boxes for a Casio key-board and stand—check her YouTube for her acoustic-guitar performances as Flossie Rose—perched on a cabinet.

Johansson was a few minutes late, on account of picking up her daughter from a rained-out day camp, and joined the call from her New York home. It was evening in London, and Pugh, who wore a white T-shirt that read “Love” and several thin necklaces, had poured herself a generous glass of red wine.

When Scarlett appeared on the call, Pugh yelped, “Oh my goodness, there she is!”

Johansson, dressed in athleisure and fresh faced, smiled back. And for a few minutes, the two stars—one of whom’s $56 million salary last year reportedly made her the highest paid actress in the world—seemed no more than two good friends catching up. They teased each other about their choice of Zoom settings. Johansson chose her bedroom and was backdropped by a tufted suede headboard and wallpaper patterned with birds and leaves.

“I like to switch up. Keep people guessing. Make it look like I’ve gone somewhere,” she said. “When I’ve gone nowhere, obviously.”

And more Black Widow news is coming out at last with one more magazine. Scarlett and her co-star Florence Pugh are in the new Total Film – October 2020 with a new interview, and movie stills. The cover and one movie still have been added to the galley and look out for the Digital scans from the issue when the magazine comes out on Firday.

Total Film – Yes, it’s been a while since we last had a Marvel movie. More than a year ago, Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the third phase of the Cinematic Universe and became the highest-grossing film of all time in the process.

But, the wait is nearly over, and for the first film in Phase 4, Marvel will be jumping back in time (a little) to delve into the backstory of one of its best-loved characters, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow.

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow’s solo movie sees her reuniting with her Russian ‘family’, Yelena (Florence Pugh), Melina (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei (David Harbour), who’s Russia’s answer to Captain America (known by the superhero name Red Guardian).

Also in the mix is mystery villain Taskmaster, a masked baddie who can imitate his opponents’ fighting styles, and who has connections to the Red Room of Natasha’s past.

Above, you can see an exclusive new image of Johansson and Pugh in Black Widow, taken from the upcoming issue of our sister publication, Total Film magazine. You can see two more exclusive images – featuring Taskmaster and Yelena in action, below.

The decision to make Black Widow a family drama came from Marvel producer Kevin Feige. “[That decision] was puzzling to me,” director Cate Shortland tells Total Film. “And then I realised, by the end, that Kevin and I had similar visions. What I really wanted to do was to expose the character and get under her skin. The family created the dynamic with which that would happen. We see a different side of the character, because she’s in scenes with people that know her from when she was a child. She’s not a superhero in those scenes; she’s a daughter or a sister.”

For more – including interviews with Johansson, Pugh, Weisz, Harbour and Shortland – pick up a copy of the new issue of Total Film magazine, when it hits shelves on this Friday, September 18. Black Widow is scheduled to open in the UK on October 28, and in the US on November 6.

Scarlett and her Black Widow co-star Florence Pugh are in the new Empire Magazine October 20202 with a new interview, photoshoot and movie stills. Digital scans from the issue have been added to the galley.

Empireonline – Though Scarlett Johansson first appeared as Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow, in the MCU 10 years ago in Iron Man 2, it’s taken a decade for the character to get her own Marvel movie. The long-awaited Black Widow is set to delve into Romanoff’s past, her non-biological family (including Florence Pugh’s incoming ‘sister’ Yelena Belova) in a film directed by Berlin Syndrome’s Cate Shortland. If the fact it’s been made in 2020 is a sign of Hollywood shifting and finally bankrolling more female-led major action franchise movies, Johansson says the film itself reflects how things have changed within the last 10 years.

Speaking in a lively new joint interview with Florence Pugh about passing the Black Widow baton – which you can read now in the new Dune issue of Empire – Johansson opened up about the film’s feminist themes. “I think this film in particular is very much reflective of what’s going on in regards to the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement,” she says. “It would be such a miss if we didn’t address that stuff, if this film didn’t take that head-on. I think, particularly for Cate, it was so important for her to make a movie about women who are helping other women, who lift other women up out of a very difficulty situation. Someone asked me if Natasha was a feminist. Of course she is, it’s obvious. It’s kinda an asinine question.”

Natasha and Yelena will be teaming up in the film to take out mysterious new villain Taskmaster, capable of instinctively mimicking the abilities and fighting styles of anyone they meet. Above you’ll find a brand new image of Natasha facing off with Taskmaster, as seen in Empire’s October issue.

Scarlett was featured on her first magazine cover of the year for W Magazine’s Best Performances edition, With came with a little interview and new photoshoot.

When I was 9 years old, working on a film called Just Cause with Laurence Fishburne, we were flying somewhere for the film, and he said, “Do you want to be an actress or do you want to be a movie star? ”I didn’t know what the difference was. I thought like, you can be both, right? And I realized then that you need to work harder and harder to get yourself to uncomfortable places. If your purpose is to be a movie star, well, this is different from acting.

Growing up, did you ever want to be a Disney child?
No, I wanted to be Judy Garland! I watched adult things at a very young age. I watched Chinatown when I was 9. Patrick Swayze was my biggest crush. He still is. And David Bowie in Labyrinth. They opened my eyes to sexuality. Wow! They both looked amazing in extremely tight pants.

Do you have a favorite song in karaoke?
I sing a Queen song if I’m particularly moody. I like “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Do you know all the words?
Of course! Are you kidding? I was a child actress: I do all the parts.

Vanity Fair – Even for the smartest and most talented actors, there are far more ways for a movie to fall short than succeed, so it’s a rare moment when project after project clicks seamlessly into place. Right now, Scarlett Johansson is clearly having such a moment. Earlier in the year, she played a pivotal role in what has become the highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide, Avengers: Endgame, and filming has just wrapped for the standalone movie about her character, Black Widow, scheduled for release in May. Meanwhile, her performances in two recent, smaller-scale movies, the searing relationship drama Marriage Story and the extraordinary, off-kilter Nazi-era comedy Jojo Rabbit, are drawing sustained acclaim; for the former she is widely considered a contender for best actress.

All of which seems to leave Johansson quietly proud, but also uneasy.

“I worked really hard for a really long time,” she says, semi-supine on a sofa in a New York photo studio at the end of another long day. “So maybe this is the result of that.” There’s a carefulness about Johansson as she says this, not the kind that implies insecurity or a lack of self-belief, more that she is used to being someone for whom it is almost always too soon to really celebrate. “I definitely am the type of person who’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop,” she reflects. “But I’m learning to change that habit.”

Johansson is 35, though, as she points out, “I’ve been working for, I don’t know, 25 years or something.” She was 9 when she filmed her first movie role, in North; by 13 she was at the center of The Horse Whisperer; at 18 a breakthrough role in Lost in Translation launched her adult career. Not everything has always come easily: “Over that time, my feelings towards work, it’s ebbed and flowed. At times I felt like I couldn’t get anything that was substantial or that felt challenging to me.”

Recently, that has been less of a problem, something she relates, at least in part, to the change of priorities that came with becoming a mother. (Her daughter, Rose, is five.) “Now I have a child…not that I’m not career-driven now, but I guess I’ve been driven by other sides of my career in the past,” she says. “Maybe I was more concerned with a certain kind of visibility or exposure. And now I’m not as worried about that stuff. I’m in a good phase in my career where I’m able to actually wait for stuff that’s right.”

Johansson says that it was obvious that Jojo Rabbit was one of these from the moment she read what director Taika Waititi had written. “The script was fantastic. It was a gem. I mean: perfect. Obviously I’ve read plenty of scripts over these 20-whatever years, and when something is that tight and surprising and touching and unusual…I was, like, ‘This is really special.’ And I felt Taika was capable of making it the way that it deserved to be made.”

Likewise, it was immediately obvious how she should play her character, a mother caught between the Nazi-youth mania possessing her young son and the dictates of her conscience. “Rosie just came off the page,” says Johansson. “In my mind she was this warm, cozy character, this lovable safe place. I wanted her to feel like a safe place, a loving and vivacious person in the middle of her life, so that you really felt the profound loss when she’s not there. I fell in love with her. I just had to say the words because I was in love with her.”

Elle – Scarlett Johansson Is a Happy Woman Who Can’t Stop Playing Sad Women

Early on in Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, we see Scarlett Johansson’s Nicole, a woman in her midthirties who’s fond of oatmeal-colored cardigans and whose Instagram bio might read “mother, wife, actress, in that order,” seated on a sofa inside her divorce attorney’s office. Soon, she’ll dive into her story, a six-minute-long monologue that’s equal parts raw and precise: the story of someone who hasn’t been truly heard in months, maybe years (and a scene that will likely resurface during awards-show broadcasts). But first, Nicole is just a woman on a couch—looking dead-tired in a wrinkly button-down shirt and DIY haircut—waiting. When her lawyer (Laura Dern) finally breezes in, impeccably coiffed but apologizing for looking “schleppy,” Nicole glances down at her shirt and sighs. It’s a small moment, but one that made this exhausted mom, wife, and journalist feel seen.

Johansson also felt an almost eerie sense of connection when Baumbach handed her the monologue over lunch in the fall of 2017.“It was the first piece Noah gave me, and it felt familiar somehow, but not because of what I’d been experiencing then,” says the actress, 34, who at the time was embroiled in her own separation, from French curator Romain Dauriac. “But maybe because of how I grew up, and the dynamic between my parents—or maybe because I’ve known women who’ve dedicated themselves to their partner’s vision and then come out of this decade-long relationship feeling almost like a ghost.” She adds that she, too, has been in that place, and that the truth in Nicole’s story was what excited her. “I didn’t hesitate at all, because I knew that I’d have the opportunity to say those words,” she says. “Noah gave me that monologue, and I was like, ‘Well, shit, come on.’ Am I going to be like, ‘Nah, I’m good—let some other actor have that’? No way.”

Johansson is relaying this anecdote from London, where’s she’s in the homestretch of filming next May’s Black Widow, which she stars in and executive produced. A little over a week before, Forbes named her the highest-paid actress for the second year in a row, with her 2019 earnings hitting the $56 million mark. She’s just returned from Venice, where Marriage Story premiered to glowing reviews. By the time this story hits stands, audiences will have also seen her in Jojo Rabbit, Taika Waititi’s heartbreaking Holocaust satire that delivers the emotional heft of Life Is Beautiful with a spoonful of Moonrise Kingdom whimsy. When you lay it all out, it’s clear that Johansson is at the top of her game.

Marvel star Scarlett Johansson joins The Hollywood Reporter to play Fishing for Answers! She discusses the unrequited love arc between her Avengers’s character Black Widow and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, working with Adam Driver on ‘Marriage Story,’ what got her into trouble as a kid, and more!

September 04, 2019  Abby Comments are off Gallery Updates, Magazines

The Hollywood Reporter – With Noah Baumbach’s ‘Marriage Story’ and Taika Waititi’s ‘Jojo Rabbit’, her Avengers spinoff ‘Black Widow’ and the mantle of the world’s highest-grossing actress, Johansson isn’t afraid to say how she really feels about Disney and her plans to direct.

When Scarlett Johansson met writer-director Noah Baumbach for lunch in 2016 to talk about a role, she was in the midst of a private ordeal, divorcing her second husband, Frenchman Romain Dauriac. Baumbach, who didn’t know about Johansson’s pending split, was eager to discuss an unusually exposing film he was writing. The tragicomic story would explore terrain Baumbach encountered while ending his marriage to actress Jennifer Jason Leigh — the hideous fights, the mercenary lawyers, the wistful moments of wondering whether things could be different.

Before Baumbach launched into his pitch about why he thought Johansson would be perfect for the role opposite Adam Driver, the actress shared what was going on in her marriage. “It totally caught me off guard,” Baumbach says. “I was like, ‘Well, you’re going to either hate this idea or love it. This may be exactly not the headspace you want to be putting yourself in, or maybe it will be healing.’ ” The movie, Marriage Story, turned out to be the latter. “We talked a lot about the actual experience of divorce because I was in the middle of the process,” Johansson says. “We talked about becoming a parent, and our parents. The expectation that comes with being in any kind of a relationship, and the disappointment that can come with that expectation.”

Johansson, 34, is recounting this story in early August on the set of Marvel’s Black Widow outside London, where she has been living with Rose, her 5-year-old daughter with Dauriac, for five months. Fresh from a morning of fight training, she arrives for an interview in a wood-paneled conference room at Pinewood Studios wearing an Avengers T-shirt, her hair in a messy bun, a gold chain with Rose’s name on her throat. It’s a hectic time for the actress: This fall, Johansson, who has never been nominated for an Oscar despite critically acclaimed performances in such movies as Lost in Translation and Match Point, stars in two likely awards contenders, Marriage Story for Netflix and Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, for Fox Searchlight, both screening at the Toronto Film Festival. When Black Widow opens in May, it will be the first female-fronted extravaganza to kick off the summer box office season. She also is preparing to send Rose to kindergarten in New York City and wed her fiance, Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost.

In person, the actress is unguarded and assured, even on thorny topics — from actors playing characters of different races (which sparked a fierce debate) to whom she’s backing for president to why she’s standing by Woody Allen. She apologizes that her answer to one question sounds “farty” (pretentious) but never asks for forgiveness for her opinions.
