Thanks to Roberto for the scoop.
Happy 2008! I am still away until next week but I had a quiet moment and made a quick update as there are some awesome new Johansson goodies to share with you all.
Scarlett Johansson was the special guest at Barack Obama‘s last big rally in Iowa last night. The Obama Campaign avoided publicizing her appearance or involving her in the official program, but she spoke at a separate, small gathering to rally young voters. Here’s more information of her appearance, courtesy of OANmedia.com:
As we followed Barack Obama out of the Marriott Hotel in Coralville, Iowa after a campaign rally on Wednesday, we noticed Scartlett Johansson in the crowd – going in the opposite direction. Being dedicated political journalists, of course we turned and followed Johansson into a conference room, told organizers that we were absolutely invited to be at the press conference with a camera, and got lost in the actress’ smoky voice during her fifteen-minute speech. Johansson is in Iowa supporting Obama, but if she really wants to pull in voters, we suggest she stand at the polls on election day.
I have added
three MQ eight HQ sized photos from Scarlett’s appearance. Hopefully more will show up soon! It is certainly good to see her out and about, especially at such an event. Credit for some of the images goes out to OANmedia.com.
An amazing set of new The Other Boleyn Girl stills have surfaced online in HQ and I was able to load them up in the gallery with the help of Mycah and Sandra. Be sure to check these out as they’re really spectacular but please remember that the may contain possible spoilers regarding the movie.
Sandra of Portman Source informed me of a site that appears to be an international official site for The Other Boleyn Girl. Not much there yet, except for the international trailer that premiered online a week back. Nevertheless, be sure to bookmark TheOtherBoleynGirlMovie.net.
Roberto sent in a link to Hollywood.com, which confirms that Scarlett’s character in He’s Just Not That Into You is named Anna and the film will be released August 1, 2008.
For those who are interested in the “sexiest women” type of polls, Andre Poupada reported to us that Scarlett has been nominated for AskMen.com’s Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2008. You can vote for her here. Scroll through the galleries and rank each of the nominees on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the most desirable). Feel free to vote as many times as you like, the final results will be revealed on January 31, 2008. As you may remember, Scarlett ranked #2 in the 2007 vote.
Scarlett also ranked #8 on EmpireOnline.com’s “Sexiest Movie Star Ever”. Visitors of the site were earlier in the year asked to pick the sexiest movie star ever, with their choice of screen star being unrestricted by age, gender or silver screen era, and over 20,000 votes were reportedly cast. Here’s what they had to say about Scarlett:
#8 – Scarlett Johansson
The voice that sounds like she’s been awake all night and up to all sorts of things would be sexy enough. But match it with a pouting face and a body apparently designed to describe the term ‘va-va-voom’ and you have a killer package.
Sheer knickers in the opening moments of Lost in Translation.
Did You Know…?
She has a twin brother, who is her junior by three minutes
Last but not least, The Nanny Diaries is now out on R1 DVD so be sure to grab your copy! Captures will be up soon.
A new poster for The Other Boleyn Girl has surfaced online! It seems Scarlett in a more prominent role than the first one. Thanks to NataliePortman.com for the find and everyone who alerted me about this.

Check out the new international trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl!
When rumours begin to circulate that King Henry VIII (Bana) is no longer intimate with his wife who has been unable to give him a male heir, Sir Thomas Boleyn concocts a plan to bring his family back to prominence: his daughter Anne (Portman) shall seduce the King and provide him with a son. However, the scheme goes off course when the King takes to the other Boleyn girl, Anne’s younger sister and best friend Mary (Johansson). Although married already, Mary gives in to family pressure and reluctantly provides the King with a boy, but along the way, she finds herself falling in love with the surprisingly tender monarch. Of course, this love affair is no obstacle for Anne whose hunger for the throne now overpowers her sisterly love, and she enacts a plan that eventually tears her family and her country apart while leading to her legendary demise.
Q: The Other Boleyn Girl is a period drama in which you play Ann to Scarlett Johansson’s Mary Boleyn, sisters who compete to win the heart of Henry VIII. It was set for a holiday release to make it Oscar-eligible. What happened?
A: The script (by Peter Morgan, writer of The Queen) was so good everyone involved wanted to make sure we got it right, that it wasn’t confusing. I’d rather make a really good film than release one just to be in contention for awards.
The trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl can now be viewed at Moviefone in HD!
Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson portray Anne and Mary Boleyn, sisters who compete for the affections of King Henry VIII (Eric Bana). What more could you ask for than a royal cat-fight, a beheading and 16th century costuming? Romance?
I have updated the gallery with 65 HQ screenshots from the trailer.
Thanks so much to Sandra for the heads up. :heart:
