Movie star Scarlett Johansson has taken a break from acting to sing duets with the well-connected musician Pete Yorn
The Times “People kept sending us texts asking if we were making up yet,” says Scarlett Johansson, smiling and leaning slightly across the enormous advertising billboard dividing her and musical partner Pete Yorn’s director’s chairs. “I got lucky,” says Yorn with a shrug, as if scheduling a recording project with one of the world’s biggest film stars is just a matter of syncing calendars. “She happened to be available.”
The subject of those text inquiries was Break Up, Johansson and Yorn’s 2009 album of Serge Gainsbourg/Brigitte Bardot-inspired duets, which took the collapse of a relationship as its theme and is the project they return to this month with an EP called Apart. It’s also the reason the three of us are in the penthouse suite of a Manhattan hotel, surrounded by a small army of — in descending terms of hierarchy — executives, management, make-up artists, cameramen and terrified-looking PR assistants.
Johansson, of course, looks as if she was born to be there, heavily made up for camera, smiling and professional in white blouse and jeans. Yorn looks exactly the successful mid-career singer-songwriter he is, and slightly less at ease with the media circus. Even back in the music industry’s big-money days, this wouldn’t be the typical environment to discuss an EP launch, even one with a poppy lead track such as Bad Dreams, which would seem destined for a decent amount of radio play even without the hook of its supernova co-star.
Lyrically, Bad Dreams tells the story of a post-relationship malaise in which two separated individuals nonetheless find it hard to escape each other’s lives. “Pessimistic as it seems, sleep will never come that easy,” they trill to each other on the catchy chorus. “We will always have bad dreams.”
“Any time you have a creative relationship with a director or writer, you are immediately detailing the failures of your relationships, your expectations, disappointments and regrets,” muses Johansson, “and all this really personal, raw stuff comes out. You all hope there’ll be something you can take out of this pool of experience.”

EW Nine years after Break Up united them as an unlikely musical duo, singer-songwriter Pete Yorn and Avengers: Infinity War actress Scarlett Johansson are back together again with Apart. The dreamy alt-pop on the new EP demonstrates that the creative kinship between the troubadour and the movie star is much closer than you might expect. We spoke with the two about their new project (their first in nine years), Musicforthemorningafter, and Black Widow.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why did it take almost a decade apart for you two to make another record?
Johansson: There was no outside pressure. It just kind of happened in a natural way. I had been sort of sewing the seeds in the hopes that he would want to make up with me [after Break Up], but then that never happened. We’re still fighting [Laughs]. I think that’s just the place that Pete likes to live.
Yorn: We would joke that this would be the make-up record, but we didn’t quite get there yet. Now we barely know each other. We’re living completely separate lives.
What was the biggest difference between making the first record and the new one?
Johansson: In a decade of time, so much has happened. We’re coming in out of relationships, we’re both parents now, we’ve grown as artists. It feels like a step we probably couldn’t have taken 10 years ago because we didn’t have the perspective that we have now.
Yorn: I think it’s cool to come back to something after a bunch of time has passed. Obviously, Scar went off and did a lot of other projects and had so much life experience, and I went off and made some other records. Over the years sometimes I’d write a song and I’d think, “Oh, that would be so fun to sing with Scarlett,” and I’d keep those aside. The first time I just kind of launched [the idea to collaborate] on her out of left field as a total surprise, and I sort of did that again this time.
Scarlett, you also released a solo album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, in 2008. What is the itch that this collaboration is scratching for you?
Johansson: I really just love to sing with Pete. I’m a huge fan of his music. I’ve known Pete since I was probably like 15, 16 years old. When you have that much history with somebody, you have a certain kind of shorthand with them. There’s a kind of seamless familiarity between us. Whether I’m working with a writer-director or another actor or, in this case, a singer-songwriter, the idea of continuing to collaborate with the same people on different material in different stages of our lives is really interesting to me. Having that sort of shared creative experience with someone, it’s a pleasure for me.
Yorn: Scarlett is one of the more professional non-professional musicians I’ve ever met. She comes in the studio and she just nails it. She’s one of the quickest studies. She’ll learn a song so fast and make it her own.

Forbes It is a great treat to talk to Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn together. What’s so refreshing about it is in this age of too many forced music partnerships and features for commercial sales sake, the two of them genuinely like each other, as evidenced by the way they talk to each other, share inside jokes, laugh often and reminisce as real friends do.
Their reasoning for reuniting to work together on the superb new EP, Apart, nine years after they teamed for their collaborative album, Break Up, is simple and pure. They missed working together. That comes across in both the music, which ranges from the fun of the opening track “Iguana Bird” to the more ethereal “Movies,” and especially the conversation.
In this joyful and engaging chat between the two close friends and musical partners they discuss parenthood, pizza, time flying by and Disney.
Steve Baltin: It’s been nine years since you did an album together. So much has changed for you both in that time. Talk about the different things you both brought to collaborating this time.
Scarlett Johansson: We’re parents now, which is I think the biggest life change that can happen for anyone. It gives you a different perspective on the passing of time. The two of us just hanging out and talking, coming from a place that’s of the life experiences we have, I think you can hopefully hear it in the sound. And it feels like, in some ways, picking up where you left off. But then there’s also a sense of there’s been a passing of time and some progression and that sort of sticky nostalgic place you can sometimes regress back into later in your life.
Pete Yorn: The whole reason we got back together, from my end, was I just missed singing with Scarlett. It felt like too much time had gone by and I felt super nostalgic for those 2006, 2007 days. And I needed to do it again and I was so happy she was game. She was definitely a baby when we did the last one and I was a little bit older than a baby. But it was quite some time ago. We both have daughters now and it changes your perspective. It’s funny though, people always ask me, “How has it changed the way you approach music or your songs?” And I always thought, “Would I write my, ‘I believe the children are the future?’” And I still write kind of moody songs, so it hasn’t really changed my writing too much.
Baltin: You may never write “The Greatest Love Of All,” but often times there are subtle things that you pick up on later. So maybe it’s influenced your writing and certainly your lifestyle in ways that aren’t overt.
Yorn: On a practical level, just having a little one makes my time more focused on different things. I’m so hands on with my little girl, I wonder before my kid what the hell did I do with all my time. I think that manifested in picking up my guitar here and there, banging out a song, and now I gotta be much more structured about it if I want to get stuff done. Scarlett can speak for her experience there, but she is even more busy than I am.
Johansson: Personally speaking, your creative time becomes more valuable. I find responsibility of having a child and balancing life as a working mother a welcome challenge. I think it somehow pares away a lot of the noise and it’s sharpened my artistic focus. So I work on projects that are meaningful to me and I feel very dedicated to having a satisfying experience and seeking out the interesting, often times ugly, unturned stones. I like to dig that stuff up because my work time is valuable. If I’m going to not be spending time focusing on being completely hands on with my daughter, which I am, then I want to make sure what I’m doing is really meaningful to me. And this project is definitely a reflection of that. It was a chance to return to something, revisit something with a new perspective. And I think that’s an unusual opportunity to do something like that. Also having a partner you’ve known for almost 15 years, it’s a rare thing.

Variety Scarlett Johansson has officially ended Hollywood’s red carpet blackout of Marchesa, the high-end womenswear brand co-founded by Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife, Georgina Chapman.
Johansson opted to wear a Marchesa gown to Monday night’s Met Gala, making a loud statement in one of the evening’s most understated dresses. The “Avengers” star explains that she wore Marchesa because she wanted to show her support for the two women behind the brand, Chapman and co-founder Keren Craig.
“I wore Marchesa because their clothes make women feel confident and beautiful, and it is my pleasure to support a brand created by two incredibly talented and important female designers,” Johansson said in a statement to Variety, making no mention of Weinstein, who she worked with on 2008’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”
Johansson’s reps tell Variety that the actress approached Chapman and Craig months ago about dressing her for the Met Gala. The gown was custom-made for Johansson.
“We are truly honored that Scarlett chose to wear Marchesa for the Met Gala,” a spokesperson for Marchesa tells Variety. “She is an amazingly talented actor who has incredible style and presence. It was wonderful to work so closely with her in creating this custom look.”
Ever since Weinstein’s sexual harassment scandal, actresses have stopped wearing Marchesa, which was once a prominent celebrity staple on red carpets ranging from the Oscars to the Emmys. The brand that was frequently worn by A-listers such as Jennifer Lopez, Cate Blanchett, and Anne Hathaway has been shunned ever since more than 100 horrific harassment and assault allegations emerged against Weinstein, resulting in his stunning fallout from Hollywood.
Quickly following the allegations, Chapman split from Weinstein in October 2017, after nearly 10 years of marriage.
During the Weinstein fallout last year, Felicity Huffman admitted that the film mogul threatened her career unless she wore Marchesa, insisting he wouldn’t put any money behind her 2005 film “Transamerica” if she didn’t wear his then-wife’s design on a red carpet.
Johansson has been a vocal supporter of the Time’s Up and Me Too movements, speaking at the Los Angeles Women’s March.
On May 07th for the first time since 2013 Scarlett with Colin attended the annual MET Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City with the theme this year being ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’. Scarlett looked just stunning in her red lace Marchesa dress that was custom-made for her.
