Things are just fine with Scarlett Johansson and her mom Melanie Sloan, thank you very much.
Over the weekend, the New York Post reported that Johansson’s former “momager” Sloan, 60, had fallen upon hard times financially; two months after signing a contract to purchase a posh two-bedroom apartment in midtown NYC for $1.4 million, Sloan filed court papers for the return of her $130,000 deposit.
Sloan told the court she was “cash poor” and could not obtain a mortgage. She was the longtime manager for her movie star daughter, now 27, until they parted ways professionally two years ago, when the We Bought a Zoo actress hired a professional manager.
“Once I got married [to Ryan Reynolds], I felt that I needed to cut the cord,” Johansson told Vanity Fair of the decision.
But that professional parting — and Sloan’s current struggle to make ends meet — hasn’t soured the mother-daughter bond, Johansson told Page Six in a statement Wednesday.
“Scarlett and Melanie are as close as they have ever been” Johansson’s rep said. “They are incredibly proud of the solid and productive professional partnership they had through the many years they worked together. Their personal relationship is solid and loving.”

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all our faithful visitors! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful time this holiday season.

Scarlett Johansson has a dream of giving up showbusiness and becoming an organic farmer.
The actress tasted a bit of her “other life” while playing a zookeeper in new movie We Bought a Zoo and she insists it wouldn’t be too difficult for her to turn her back on Hollywood and live the rural life.
She tells WENN, “There are things outside of the movie business that I want to pursue and hopefully eventually will when all this falls apart.
“I work with a lot of non-governmental organisations and I think it would be nice to work and dedicate more of my time to that.
“I also think it would be nice to have a vineyard somewhere and have an organic farm. It’s a hippy dippy wish but a good one.”
Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she has “no interest” in playing Marilyn Monroe in a biopic.
Johansson is often compared to the iconic sex symbol, and was reportedly in the lead to portray Monroe in My Week with Marilyn, a role which was eventually offered to Michelle Williams.
“There’s a lot there to explore, and I like to watch other people do it, but I have no interest,” Johansson told USA Today.
“It’s lovely to be compared to somebody as sort of effervescent and charming and fragile and I think kind of an underrated actor, really… you know, beautiful and everything. But it’s never been one for me.”
Johansson can be seen next as a zookeeper in Cameron Crowe’s family drama We Bought a Zoo opposite Matt Damon, in which she also shared her joy in not spending many hours in the make-up chair.
“I was just happy that Matt and I spent about the same amount of time in the make-up chair,” she shared. “It’s the only time that’s ever happened in my life, that my leading man and I came out at the same time.”

On Monday night, Scarlett stopped by The Late Show to promote ‘We Bought a Zoo’.
But David Letterman was more interested in discussing the nude self-portraits recently hacked from Johansson’s cellphone.
To her credit, she seemed to have a healthy perspective on the ordeal. “Somebody stole my nudie photos. They were out there for all the world to see which was, uh, unfortunate, really,” she said, laughing. Johansson, who described herself as “lame” when it comes to technology, suspected something was awry when her email password changed multiple times over several months. “It meant the guy was there constantly, every 20 seconds, sitting there all pasty and sweaty and pervy and weird. And that’s the creepiest thing, really,” she said.
You can watch the funny video of the interview here*, where she also talked about her grandma, filming ‘Under The Skin’ in Scotland and many more things. Check also our gallery for HQ photos and caps!

For an especially private person, Scarlett Johansson has an especially difficult time seeing her life played out publicly.
So, imagine her horror at reading tabloid headlines about her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, her dating and breaking up with Sean Penn, her time in Paris with Kieran Culkin and in Manhattan with Justin Bartha – not to mention the nude photos from her hacked cellphone. Those went viral.
“The hardest part is actually going through whatever hardship you’re facing. Going through it in public is the added unfortunate thing,” the actress, 27, tells USA Today while promoting her new movie with Matt Damon, We Bought a Zoo.
Still, “There’s nothing you can do about that,” she says. “It’s just nice to have kind of a blinder up in that regard. It helps keep you sane. I can’t follow all that stuff. It’s too exhausting.”
Answering the very direct question of whether she would marry again, the actress replies: “I have no idea. I don’t X things off. I don’t know. Life is long.”
She does say she would like to have a family of her own, when she’s older, but for now, her work will suffice. “It’s been nice to just focus on that and to focus on myself,” she says. “There’s something quite refreshing about it.”
And one more thing, speaking about herself. Don’t call her “ScarJo.”
“Oh, it’s awful,” she says. “It’s a laziness. People can’t actually say the whole name? It’s just bizarre.” After all, Cate Blanchett has no such nickname, and, says Johansson, “is not, like, ‘CaBla’ … Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck?”

Scarlett was at the Today Show on monday looking this lovely. Watch the video here*
She talked about working with animals, and with Cameron Crowe, and she was also asked about how she has dealt with this year afterdivorcing and the hacking scandal on what she said:
“I’ve been really fortunate. I’ve found that even in times of crisis I’ve had a lot of love around me and people have come out of all different dark corners to support me and that’s really a beautiful thing. I think I’ve also learned to be much more tolerant and patient.”
