Scarlett continues in Scotland filming ‘Under the Skin’. I’ve added the latest candids of her on set (also from her birhtday!):
You can read the great article ‘Scarlett Gives a Damn’, interviewed by Ariana Huffington for Interview Magazine on the previous post. I’ve added the photoshoot outtakes to the gallery (Scarlett looks fierce!) and please if anyone could contribute with the scans it would be amazing!
Also I would like to make a special mention to Phill, loyal fan of Scarlett and of this site, and who made something great for this site today. You’re great, man!

Scarlett Gives a Damn
“I don’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account, and I don’t know how I feel about this idea of, “Now, I’m eating dinner, and I want everyone to know that I’m having dinner at this time.” or “I just mailed a letter and dropped off my kids.” That, to me, is a very strange phenomenon. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life. I’m always surprised that certain actors have Twitter accounts. I guess they use it in a way that works for them. But I’d rather that people had less access to my personal life. If I could keep it that way, I’d be a happy lady.”
Scarlett Johansson’s new film, We Bought a Zoo, is based on the true story of Benjamin Mee, a British journalist who moves with his family into a house on a piece of property that contains a private zoo that has fallen into disrepair. Following the untimely death of his wife, Mee decides to focus his energies on refurbishing the zoo and making a new home not only for the animals that live there, but for his grieving family as well.
In the film, directed by Cameron Crowe, the locale is reset in Southern California, with Matt Damon playing the Mee role, and Johansson as the zookeeper who helps him with the project. All told, We Bought a Zoo is a heartwarming movie that brings to light the resilience of the human spirit, the kinship that can exist between people and animals, and numerous other wholly life-affirming ideas. But for those very same reasons, the film stands out in the Johansson oeuvre, which by and large is comprised of more fraught, conflicted material like Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003), or Woody Allen’s Match Point (2005) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), in which the philosophical takeaway is more ambiguous and bad things occasionally beget worse things as the characters struggle bitterly (and often unsuccessfully) to come to terms with parts of their lives that don’t quite square up to their own expectations. So We Bought a Zoo is a different kind of movie for Johansson, and it arrives at what has turned out to be a very different kind of time for her, too.
Scarlett turns 27 years old today so happy birthday to our girl (and to her twin brother Hunter)!
Professionally, it’s been a really great year for her, we’re going to see her on the movies three times between this year and 2012! That’s great!.The only bad thing is her divorce from Ryan Reynolds, but now she seems to be enjoying single life and that’s good for her.
On behalf of all of the fans, we would like to send out congratulations to our favorite star!
“Summer Crossing”, an adaptation of Truman Capote’s lost novella, is headed for the bigscreen as the directorial debut of Scarlett Johansson.
Project’s being produced by Barry Spikings, who won an Oscar for “The Deer Hunter,” and executive produced by Peter D. Graves in conjunction with the Truman Capote Literary Trust and its trustee Alan Schwartz.
Screenwriter and New York playwright Tristine Skyler is adapting the Capote novella.
“Summer Crossing” novella is set in New York when Gotham was emerging from the trauma of World War II and centers on an 18-year-old girl breaking free of her rich, smothering, family to discover her own identity and sexuality.
“Summer Crossing” was written by Capote during the 1940s and then lost for half a century before it was recovered and published.
Johannson told Women’s Wear Daily in September that she planned to direct the movie. She’ll be seen next in “We Bought a Zoo,” “Under the Skin” and “The Avengers.”
Scarlett has been filming ‘Under The Skin’ these days in some different locations in Scotland. I’ve added 40+ pics from October 31, November 1 and Novermber 3 to the gallery.
The first poster featuring Scarlett’s character – Kelly – is out!
Also there’s a new international trailer in which Scarl appears much more than in the previous one has been released. You can view it here*. And as always, click on the pic to enter the gallery.

Scarlett Johansson does not seem the least bit ashamed when discussing her recent nude-photo scandal with Vanity Fair contributing editor Peter Biskind. “I know my best angles,” she says with her trademark insouciance. “They were sent to my husband,” now ex Ryan Reynolds. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno.” She adds saucily, “Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
Scarlett was photographed today in Glasgow (Scotland) on the first day on set of her upcoming project ‘Under The Skin’. She’s wearing a black short hair wig! Such a a different look from what we’re used to! She recently talked about her character:
“In a few weeks I will be shooting in Scotland a sci-fi thriller directed by Jonathan Glazer, ‘Under the Skin’. The plot seems a bit difficult to explain. In fact when you read the script it can be ridiculous. It focuses on an alien who adopts the appearance of a woman and snares human prey to feed her species. Until, at some point, the alien experiments an empathic behaviour that makes her rethink her opinion on human beings.”
Thanks to SJA for the photos and the quote. You can view first pics on set in the gallery!
