Hello from the good ole rainy Scotland! Still no flat but I just had to come by to post this fabulous find!
One of my favorite websites, The Film Experience has been having a Scarlett Johansson week with lots of goss and chatter about our girl. Check out results of their poll here; the readers have voted Lost in Translation as Scarlett’s best performance with 51% – Match Point and Girl with a Pearl Earring follow. The blog also has awesome musings on Scarlett and her career. They even voted Scarlett-Fan.com as the best Scarlett Johansson website!
These photos are all of Scarlett celebrating Lost in Translation at various bashes, premieres, festivals. For thousands more (you heard me right) —or if Scarlett week had you all hot and bothered, visit Scarlett Fan. It’s a huge spiffy website. If all movie actors had websites this comprehensive the world would be a better, prettier, happier, more satisfying place.
I am blushing. Literally.
Film siren Scarlett Johansson might be coming to Australia for a promotional tour later this year.
The star is in negotiations to attend a premiere for the film Black Dahlia, which is due for release in November.
A film insider has revealed Johansson and her co-star Josh Hartnett are likely to travel to Australia to promote the film, which has been chosen to open the Venice Film Festival.
The movie Scoop opens today. Woody Allen wrote, directed, ed ited, co-stars in it. Also probably sells popcorn for it, takes your tickets and acts as the pro in the men’s room. In this thing, Scarlett Johansson’s a college reporter who happens to accidentally happen upon a major scoop. And if you believe we weary old broads actually nail exclusives that way, then I have five miles of swampland in Jersey I want to unload on you.
Scarlett Johansson, whom I’ve met before, is as saucy, sassy, gorgeous, fun, talented and bright in real life as in reel life. Our reunion Wednesday was on an escalator. Traveling downstairs to the theater in MoMA for the screening.
“I’ve been working nonstop,” she said, “And I think it’s time I treated myself to a little vacation. What I’m planning to do is go with a couple of my girlfriends to the Caribbean. I have decided I definitely need the Caribbean. I have a decent break right now. Like about six weeks because I don’t start again until September. That’s when we begin shooting The Other Burbleburble Girl. “
Wow – the first teaser trailer footage of The Black Dahlia is out now for your viewing pleasure at YouTube – and it looks absolutely breath-taking! Only a few quick climbses at Ms. Johansson, though. It looks like it was shown on Access Hollywood so I would assume the full trailer will be up online by this weekend!
I had no idea about this before but apparently Scarlett was on Good Morning America this morning. Thankfully the website has a video clip of it up so be sure to check it out!
And just a quick reminder that Ms. Johansson will be a guest on Late Show with David Letterman tonight. Be sure to tune in!
