The Danish-American Chamber of Commerce Georgia has honored Scarlett Johansson with its Danish-American actress of the year award.

The 27-year-old New York native, who has appeared in “Lost in Translation”, “We Bought a Zoo” and “The Nanny Diaries”, among many other films, is the daughter of an American mother and a Danish-born father.

The honor is part of a chamber effort to reach out to prominent Americans of Danish ancestry, Macon attorney Christopher Smith, Denmark’s Honorary Consul for Georgia, said in a news release.

The chamber selected Ms. Johansson for her success as a singer, actress and model, as well as her work as a philanthropist, said chamber President Michael Jensen.

“I’m very pleased to receive the Danish-American actress of the year award,” Ms. Johansson said in a statement. “I’m proud of my Danish heritage and thank the DACC for their support.”

Ms. Johansson’s next film is “The Avengers”, which is scheduled to hit theaters in May.

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 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.

Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Scarlett covers the US issue of Vanity Fair Magazine, looking this stunning!! I’ve added scans of the editorial to our gallery, and hope to add the interview ones soon. Meanwhile, here you have a sneak peek from VF! – click on the cover to see scans!

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 covers last week’s edition of spanish magazine S Moda. Photographed during her trip to Milan to attend Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion show, Scarl looked so glamorous and sexy! There are some new photos and a new interview, unfortunately for some of you it’s in spanish but I translated some of the most interesting quotes:

“In Hollywood, everyone takes care of their image to the last detail. But in my private life, no. I advocate a healthy lifestyle. I don’t like extremes. When I go to a presentation, a gala, or a premiere, I know I’m going to be photographed on the red carpet. Let’s say it’s not a surprise for me. But it terrifies me that they try to take snapshots of my personal life. In any case, being a sex symbol does not represent any extra pressure for me. I consider myself an independent woman. And when I have to go to an event, I simply choose the dresses in which I feel more comfortable and glamorous. Someone will always criticize me by the look I chose. But you can’t allow these types of comments affect you. And so you can’t stop going out as much as people recognize you and try to stop you when you pass by their side.”

“Young people should claim their right to vote ever since they turn 18. It is a right for which our ancestors have fought and were killed. And the mere fact of despising it for me seems irresponsible and disrespectful. It’s absurd not to participate in society and in political life through the ballot box. It is certainly a matter of ignorance.”

In Dolce & Gabbana’s ad campaign for their new Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation and Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick – both hit stores this month – Scarlett Johansson’s striking beauty is amplified by makeup artist Pat McGrath.  Here, Scarlett talks about her retro-inspired images.

What did you most enjoy about this latest D&G shoot? How was it different from past shoots for the brand’s beauty collection?

It was like making a little mini movie. Stefano and Domenico had this whole unbelievable story behind the shoot – she lives in Sicily and her husband’s left her and she’s now waiting for her lover. It was all so unbelievably glamorous and Fellini-esque, like they’re making a Bertolucci movie or something.  To me that’s fun because it’s a part of playing dress-up.

Did you pick up any application tips or tricks from Pat on set?

Pat does a lot of old school tricks like using the concealer brush around the lips to really highlight the shape of the lip and stuff like that. And she’ll completely finish one eye and then do the other side which, to me, is really interesting because it’s almost like she knows exactly how she wants it to look so she’s able to complete the look on the other side. I don’t know what her theory is on that but it’s brilliant. And I find it does help, when you’re doing eyeliner to totally complete one eye, like, the finishing touch, and then do the other one because then you have a reference, almost.

Do you prefer to play up your eyes, lips or cheekbones? What are you most comfortable applying/doing yourself?

I think it depends on the occasion, but I do think it’s nice to have a pale lip and a smoky eye or perhaps a little flick of eyeliner and a red lip. I like to mix it up depending on what I’m wearing and also what my hair color is!

See more Scarlett in our October issue, on stands now!
