People – Johansson has partnered with HumanCo on Snow Days, a brand of frozen pizza bites made with organic, grain-free ingredients

Scarlett Johansson takes a passive approach toward getting her daughter, 6-year-old Rose Dorothy, to eat her fruits and vegetables.

“It’s funny, but I think I never really had to trick her into eating healthy,” The two-time Academy Award nominee, 36, tells PEOPLE.

Johansson says that her own mother used the “one bite rule,” which she also subscribes to with Rose. “I think [it’s best] just letting kids discover food that way without making it feel like a chore,” she says.

“Everybody has a different palate,” she adds. “I’ve never tried to force my kid to eat anything she didn’t like, and I never tried to hide any foods from her because I was trying to pack in an extra carrot. I’m just like, ‘If you don’t like carrots, you don’t have to eat them.’ But just offer a variety as much as possible. And then I think, as you get older your palate develops, and you get out of those habits.”

Johansson hopes to help other moms get nutrition to their kids just as smoothly, investing in Jason Karp’s company HumanCo and taking over as the creative director for their brand Snow Days, which has created a healthier take on pizza bites.

Launching the organic, grain-free frozen snack last year, the brand is looking to expand into healthier versions of other nostalgic comfort foods from childhood. “I think it just made sense, especially because I have a 6-year-old daughter,” the actress says.

“I know what it is to look for both of those things, convenience and the nutrition,” she continues. “And it’s kind of a bare bones category. You pass the freezer aisle because you think, ‘Oh, I’m going to find something in there that could be [good] on a rainy day,’ but it’s always just… I can’t. And wouldn’t it be so great to just reach in there and just know that you have this trusted brand that’s delicious, and doesn’t make you feel terrible?”

The Black Widow star coparents Rose with ex-husband Romain Dauriac, 39, to whom she was married from 2014 to 2017. She recently married Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost in an intimate ceremony in October.

Johansson says she recently spent one of her own snow days with Jost and her daughter watching the 1997 family movie Home Alone 3, in which she made one of her first onscreen appearances at age 11.

After Rose fell in love with the first two Christmas classics starring Macaulay Culkin, Johansson reluctantly showed her the third installment—but she didn’t tell Rose about the personal connection.

“I just wanted her to make the discovery,” she recounts with a laugh. “Of course, she didn’t because how can an 11-year-old me remind her of me now? And I said, ‘Who’s that person?!’ She was like, ‘You?'”

Metro
Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh both came down with pneumonia, but pushed through filming on set of Black Widow. The latest Marvel movie is scheduled for release later this year, starring Scarlett, 36, back in action as her Avengers character Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow and Florence, 25, as Yelena Belova – who is like a sister-figure to Natasha. Production wrapped on the film last year, with filming taking place in London, Norway, Morocco, Atlanta and Budapest, but the movie’s director Cate Shortland has now revealed that Black Widow’s leading stars both fell ill. Scarlett and Florence came down with pneumonia on set but pushed through with filming despite being unwell.

‘It was like being in the army,’ filmmaker Cate told The Gentlewoman, as she touched on the intense schedule production brought with it. Cate also opened up about what it was like to work with Scarlett and how the actress had pushed her to create a standalone Black Widow film that meant something.

‘She’s completely unpretentious,’ Cate said of Scarlett. ‘And that makes her really fun to be around. She’ll be joking with the best boy or the runner, there’s no hierarchy. She appreciates people and makes people feel appreciated.’ Cate continued: ‘[Scarlett] really pushed to make something that wasn’t flimsy or superficial. She wanted to make something that meant a lot to young people and to women. ‘She knew it was possibly her last film as Black Widow – she didn’t want to leave Marvel making a feel-good movie.’

Black Widow will pick up from the event of Captain America: Civil War and will follow Scarlett’s character Natasha as she confronts her past and broken relationships she left behind to become an Avenger. The movie also stars Stranger Things actor David Harbour, Rachel Weisz and will see Robert Downey Jr feature as Tony Stark. Since last year, Black Widow has faced multiple pushbacks due to the coronavirus pandemic, with Disney now announcing that its release date has been scheduled for July 2021.

W Magazine – Scarlett Johansson’s 30-year career is a testament to the fact that she has the range. But recent years have brought plenty of criticism that the 36-year-old can go too far—though, as Johansson again made clear in a new interview with the Gentlewoman, she has no regrets. It all started with Ghost in the Shell, a 2017 manga series that arguably should have starred a Japanese actor. (Johansson defended her decision, asserting she “would never want to feel like [she] was playing a character that was offensive.”) The outcry over Johansson’s next role, as a transgender massage parlor owner, was even more extreme, to the point that Johansson eventually stepped away from the film—but not before defending herself first.

“You know, as an actor I should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job,” she infamously told the magazine As If. And, unlike stars such as Timothée Chalamet and Kate Winslet, she’s staunchly stood by Woody Allen. “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime,” she told the Hollywood Reporter in 2019, referring to the well-documented allegations of his sexual misconduct. “It’s hard because it’s a time where people are very fired up, and understandably.”

At this point, one has to wonder if Johansson is actually drawn to controversy. And according to her interview with the Gentlewoman, the answer is yes. “Yeah, I’ve made a career out of it,” she said. “I’m going to have opinions about things, because that’s just who I am.” At the same time, she continued, “I mean, everyone has a hard time admitting when they’re wrong about stuff, and for all of that to come out publicly, it can be embarrassing. To have the experience of, Wow, I was really off mark there, or I wasn’t looking at the big picture, or I was inconsiderate. I’m also a person.”

“I can be reactive,” Johansson continued. “I can be impatient. That doesn’t mix that great with self-awareness.” Hence why she’s been trying to learn how to recognize “when it’s not your turn to speak.”

Still, Johansson doesn’t really sweat it. “I don’t think actors have obligations to have a public role in society,” she said. “Some people want to, but the idea that you’re obligated to because you’re in the public eye is unfair. You didn’t choose to be a politician, you’re an actor. Your job is to reflect our experience to ourselves; your job is to be a mirror for an audience, to be able to have an empathetic experience through art.” Her goal is for the audience to “see pieces of themselves, or are able to connect with themselves through this experience of watching this performance or story or interaction between actors or whatever it is.” And “that,” she asserted, is her job. “The other stuff is not.”

You can view the photos in the gallery and read some of the interview below, please click the link to read the full one.

The Gentle Woman – Back in the leather catsuit for the eighth time in May, Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson’s sassy Marvel character, has her own film at last. Over 30 years in show business, the 36-year-old actor has soared steadily from indie darling to box office draw, and she now has the powers to cast a woman in the director’s chair. It’s Scarlett’s fanatical commitment to outlandish parts that keeps fans coming back for more. And with her own production company, she’s free to make work as rich and as challenging as she is herself.

Hanging behind Scarlett Johansson, who’s at home in New York, is a painting by the artist Lois Dodd, once described as the most famous painter of windows in America. It’s a huge canvas, dominated by a deep purple dusk and a large clapboard house, one celebrated window lit up yellow, looming above Scarlett’s head like an idea. “I was thinking maybe I could frame it so it looks like I’m in the painting,” she says. It’s one of those mid-Zoom thoughts you have as you see yourself, yet again, pinned in the corner of a screen.

Over the past year and its many Zooms, with the surplus of events on one hand and the lack of happening on the other, Scarlett has learned a few things about herself. “Well, I’ve never spent this much time off. Ever. In my entire life.” She widens her eyes behind thick black-framed glasses. “I’ve been working for almost 30 years!”

She’s 36.
“It’s crazy,” she says. “It’s insane. I have a really long white beard that I shaved off just before this.”
You could retire, I suggest.
“It’s not even early retirement,” she says, a little rueful.

From child acting – off-Broadway as a kid, Manny & Lo at 12, The Horse Whisperer at 14 – her career has grown exponentially and irrepressibly, indie to Marvel. She’s not the kind of actor who, having hit the superhero jackpot, slides lazily into a plateau, making one film a year playing an approximation of herself. Instead, she’s somehow retained the status of a character actor with blockbuster effect. Or, as Sofia Coppola, who directed her in Lost in Translation, the film that catapulted her career into the big leagues back in 2003, put it over email, “She’s proven that she can be a bombshell and also a respected actress with depth and strength.”

Over her years enmeshed in the Marvel universe, Scarlett has revealed a mastery of hand-to-hand stunt combat, but she’s also given her character, Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, mystery and humour. “What’s really great about her as an actor is she can’t do fake,” says Cate Shortland, the director of Black Widow, Scarlett’s first stand-alone Marvel film, due to be released in May. “There’s no BS; she has to believe it.” Rachel Weisz, her co-star, agrees. “She is extremely talented and hard-working and passionate about her role. She’s a straight shooter, very focused and clear about the story she is telling.”

In return, the Marvel machine has given Scarlett incomprehensible wealth and genuine power. She was the highest-grossing female actor in Hollywood in 2018 and 2019 and now has the heft of a mogul: she can get movies made and hand-pick her directors. (Of the 49 women directors considered for Black Widow, the under-the-radar Cate Shortland made the last three and was then chosen after conversations with Marvel producers and Scarlett, who had liked her previous film, Lore. “It was about that connection,” Shortland says now.)

Though Marvel tends to dominate the landscape, it’s Scarlett’s other roles that reveal her particular elasticity as an actor. She can stretch from a strangely loveable disembodied voice (Her) to a haunting alien killer (Under the Skin), from a synchronised-swimming 1950s movie star (Hail, Caesar!) to a devastated divorcing actor (Marriage Story). She seeks characters that derail preconceptions – particularly those related to her beauty, the kind that has bamboozled male journalists for decades – and brings to them an alchemy of fanatical commitment, off-kilter wit and a sardonic intelligence that often reveals itself in perfect, ironic opposition to the wide-eyed, credulous expression on her face. Over email, the director Noah Baumbach, who wrote the part of Nicole in Marriage Story specifically for Scarlett, recalled moments in the film “where nothing is spoken and her face says everything. It’s that thing when the internal becomes external. And a close-up can be the greatest shot imaginable.”

E! Online – Colin Jost tells the story of how he first met an “intimidatingly sophisticated” Scarlett Johansson on the set of Saturday Night Live in 2006.

Was it love at first sight for Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson? Sort of.
Instead of experiencing that strike of Cupid’s arrow, the Saturday Night Live star was acutely aware of the actress’ star power and intelligence. He writes in his book A Very Punchable Face: A Memoir that his first impression of his future fiancée was that she was “beautiful, smart, sweet and intimidatingly sophisticated.”

The pair met on the set of SNL in 2006, which happened to be his first year as a sketch writer on the show and her first time hosting. “I got eight sketches on the show my first year, including one cold open and a parody of MTV’s My Super Sweet Sixteen, starring first-time host Scarlett Johansson,” he recalls. “She has just turned 20 and I was 23, but in terms of status and maturing she was here [holds hand above head] and I was here [ holds hand one inch off ground]. She claims that she remembers thinking I was ‘cute,’ but I know what I looked like and that’s not the word I would have used. (‘Shaggy’ would have been generous. ‘Slovenly,’ more accurate).”

He goes on to describe the Avengers: Endgame star as having “a grace and a smile that I’ve still never seen in any other human.”
As for the skit she starred in, he states, “The only line I remember from the sketch is when Scarlett’s bratty character says, ‘This party is literally worse than the Holocaust.’ That was my Shakespearean sonnet for the woman I would one day fall in love with.”

And because of his love for Scarlett, Colin writes that he’s even finding himself wishing he had kids. “I’ve met someone I love and who I feel more comfortable with than I ever have before. I feel more confident committing to what I’m working on and standing by whatever I create, regardless of whether people like it or not,” he shares.

Jost writes that he recognized this desire for kids when he found himself wanting to participate in “human activities,” like birthdays and family gatherings.
He explains, “I’ve even woken up on a Sunday after a show and thought, ‘I would love to be raising a baby right now!’ Which is a far cry from when I used to wake up on a Sunday and think, ‘Can I make it to the bathroom, or should I just puke on this plant?'”

But he also says that he’s not likely to have kids until after he leaves SNL. According to the star, being a writer for the sketch show is “a job for young, single people,” because of the environment. “It’s certainly not a good place to work while you’re raising a family or nurturing a healthy relationship. In terms of ‘family- friendly jobs,’ SNL ranks somewhere between long-haul truck driver and Somali pirate,” the 38-year-old jokes.

Scarlett and Black Widow co-star Florence Pugh are on the cover of Marie Claire – Winter 2020 with a all new amazing photoshoot and interview. I have added in the magazine cover and first set of outtakes from the shoot to the galley. I hope to have the digital scans soon and here is hoping more outtakes.

Marie Claire – The Call Once upon a weekday (or weekend, because what’s time anymore?), there was Scarlett Johansson, sipping, sipping, a margarita.

All good so far, eh? But, alas, like most things in 2020, it just went bad from there.

A call interrupted her cocktail hour. The word: The release of Black Widow, the sure-shot blockbuster starring Johansson and the magnetic Marvel newcomer Florence Pugh and directed by Cate Shortland—three power women collaborating on a power-women film, asserting their ascendance—was being delayed. It was deflating news, Johansson recalls, though not out of the blue.

Another margarita, you say? Yes, please, and thank you.

“I’d been talking to Kevin Feige”—the president of Marvel Studios—“about it, and our fellow producers, just trying to understand what the landscape was,” says Johansson, 36, with a little resignation now in that unmistakable voice but a little pragmatism too. “We’re all eager to get the movie out, but more important than anything, everybody wants the experience to feel safe, to have people be able to really feel confident about sitting in an enclosed theater.”

We’re on a conference call, because that’s what you do these days—no lunch. That or Zoom, which we did a few weeks ago. Pugh, 24, is with us on the line. Also resigned, also pragmatic. She had just flown from London back to L.A., where she lives, when she got the call.

“I think I probably had a hunch,” she says. “It seemed to me all the fun of summer, and everybody being outside and finally having some relaxed rules, caught up with everyone, obviously, because of the virus. I’m sad that people don’t get to watch it for another half year, but I wasn’t majorly upset because it’s important to look after people right now.”

What they’re saying is, the postponement of a superhero film isn’t the apocalypse. Not this abysmal year nor any other. But ain’t it the pits? Who wouldn’t want to be sitting in a darkened theater right now, loaded with a bucket of fake-buttered popcorn, big soda, sinking into a seat as heart-thumping Marvel action unfolds on the screen?

And this, of all movies—one with strong female characters, strong female actors, a strong female director. A movie that’s both fun and important. So what happens now?

The Movie

We first chatted over computer screens. Pugh, after many months grounded by COVID-19, had traveled to London and Zoomed from her office, a dimly lit room with framed art hung high on the walls and opened boxes for a Casio key-board and stand—check her YouTube for her acoustic-guitar performances as Flossie Rose—perched on a cabinet.

Johansson was a few minutes late, on account of picking up her daughter from a rained-out day camp, and joined the call from her New York home. It was evening in London, and Pugh, who wore a white T-shirt that read “Love” and several thin necklaces, had poured herself a generous glass of red wine.

When Scarlett appeared on the call, Pugh yelped, “Oh my goodness, there she is!”

Johansson, dressed in athleisure and fresh faced, smiled back. And for a few minutes, the two stars—one of whom’s $56 million salary last year reportedly made her the highest paid actress in the world—seemed no more than two good friends catching up. They teased each other about their choice of Zoom settings. Johansson chose her bedroom and was backdropped by a tufted suede headboard and wallpaper patterned with birds and leaves.

“I like to switch up. Keep people guessing. Make it look like I’ve gone somewhere,” she said. “When I’ve gone nowhere, obviously.”

And more Black Widow news is coming out at last with one more magazine. Scarlett and her co-star Florence Pugh are in the new Total Film – October 2020 with a new interview, and movie stills. The cover and one movie still have been added to the galley and look out for the Digital scans from the issue when the magazine comes out on Firday.

Total Film – Yes, it’s been a while since we last had a Marvel movie. More than a year ago, Avengers: Endgame wrapped up the third phase of the Cinematic Universe and became the highest-grossing film of all time in the process.

But, the wait is nearly over, and for the first film in Phase 4, Marvel will be jumping back in time (a little) to delve into the backstory of one of its best-loved characters, Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow.

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Black Widow’s solo movie sees her reuniting with her Russian ‘family’, Yelena (Florence Pugh), Melina (Rachel Weisz) and Alexei (David Harbour), who’s Russia’s answer to Captain America (known by the superhero name Red Guardian).

Also in the mix is mystery villain Taskmaster, a masked baddie who can imitate his opponents’ fighting styles, and who has connections to the Red Room of Natasha’s past.

Above, you can see an exclusive new image of Johansson and Pugh in Black Widow, taken from the upcoming issue of our sister publication, Total Film magazine. You can see two more exclusive images – featuring Taskmaster and Yelena in action, below.

The decision to make Black Widow a family drama came from Marvel producer Kevin Feige. “[That decision] was puzzling to me,” director Cate Shortland tells Total Film. “And then I realised, by the end, that Kevin and I had similar visions. What I really wanted to do was to expose the character and get under her skin. The family created the dynamic with which that would happen. We see a different side of the character, because she’s in scenes with people that know her from when she was a child. She’s not a superhero in those scenes; she’s a daughter or a sister.”

For more – including interviews with Johansson, Pugh, Weisz, Harbour and Shortland – pick up a copy of the new issue of Total Film magazine, when it hits shelves on this Friday, September 18. Black Widow is scheduled to open in the UK on October 28, and in the US on November 6.

Digital Spy

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were filmed back-to-back, that’s common knowledge. It does make us wonder how much of what happens in the second film was kept secret from the actors while they were filming the first one, either because the directors don’t want the knowledge of what’s to come to potentially affect the performances, or because they know a few (*cough* Holland *cough* Ruffalo) of them can’t keep a spoiler secret.

Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson has confirmed that she was made aware of her character’s ultimate fate before filming the first part, although she cheekily never stated how many other actors knew about it at the same time.

Speaking to Empire magazine, the star said: “It was before shooting Infinity War that I was made aware of what was going to happen in Endgame.

“Kevin (Feige) called me and said, ‘Look, obviously we’re at a place where there’s going to be big sacrifices and big losses’. We had all anticipated that. So it didn’t seem out of character. It kind of made sense to me, I guess, even though I was sad about it.

“But after I hung up the phone I remember I thought, ‘Okay, I guess it’s me’. And it took me a minute to process it. It was bittersweet, but it was not a shock.”

Of course, being killed off didn’t mean the end for Black Widow, as ScarJo is reprising the role for one last time in her own solo movie, one set before the events of Endgame. It was meant to be out by now, but delayed because of… you know what.

There are tons of rumours that it will come to Disney+ first, like Mulan is, but the House of Mouse are adamant that it won’t.
