Hi, my name is Aniek and I will be helping out Camilla with Scarlett Fan! I added a few scans of Scarlett in the Italian magazine “Chi”.
She’s a part of the star-studded “Avengers” cast that boasts one of the biggest box office money makers ever to grace the big screen, so it seems fitting to find Scarlett Johansson featured in the July 2012 issue of Total Film magazine.
The 27-year-old actress showed off her gorgeous smile in article beginning shot while chatting with the cinema buff-friendly publication about everything from her black widow character and new role in “Psycho” to her status as a sex symbol as she grows older.
Highlights from Miss Johansson’s interview are as follows.
On how she’d measure up to Black Widow:
“she could definitely kick my a**, that’s for sure. She has to remain lukewarm, in a sense. To keep a distance and not make decisions based on her emotions. I always make decisions based on my emotions. I’m not very practical that way. I think I’m hypersensitive and I think I use it for my job, so there are certainly a lot of differences there.”
On the films that gained her the most fans:
“When I was growing up, I had the core fans of ‘Ghost World’, who were really into that, and the other independent stuff I was doing. And that was cool. Then after ‘Lost In Translation’ it really started…”
On what made her want to play Black widow in the first place:
“I really loved the first ‘Ironman’. It reinvented that genre. I was never a big comic book fan. It was really the that film that I found to be very exciting. And ‘Ironman 2′, it was the first time I’ve ever been in a big blockbuster that did well, so that was nice.”
On being dubbed a sex symbol:
“I never wanted to be a sex symbol. I wanted to be a character actor. Those are the actors I often mostly admire. But I think women that are curvy can be pigeonholed in that bombshell thing. I never think of my characters that way. What can you do about it? As I get older, I think I’m seeing more multifaceted roles. I’m past the ingenue phase, which I’m very thankful for, but I’m happy is over.”
On playing Janet Leigh opposite Anthony Hopkins in ‘Psycho':
“I’m very excited to play her. There was never really an actor I wanted for portray or do a bio of but I do love Janet Leigh. I’ve always loved her. She was such a good actor and sexy. But it never got in the way of her work. She was spunky and her relationship with Hitchcock was famously one of great admiration and affection between them.”

With the 2012 release date schedule pretty much nailed in, give or take a few films, our eyes have started to wander toward the horizon. Some of this was discussed in one of our recent features in which we asked: are any of these dozen or so films going to arrive in 2012?
The answer is maybe. Some will appear at film festivals this year, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they will surface with proper 2012 theatrical releases. One of those big, nebulous question marks hovers over one of our most anticipated films of the (hopefully) near future — Jonathan Glazer’s “Under The Skin” starring Scarlett Johansson.
Glazer’s a rare talent, a visual stylist who also cares about character, emotion and dramatic stakes. With two aughts classics under his belt (including his striking debut, “Sexy Beast”) and a list of spooky and impressive music videos, Glazer hasn’t made a feature length effort since “Birth” in 2004. Eight years is a long time between features, but “Under The Skin” — which appears to be in effects-heavy post-production — should be a haunting return to form.
About an alien (Johannsson) that takes the perfect synthetic form of an irresistibly alluring woman, driving remote highways seeking the resource she is here to collect — us — by snaring us with her sexuality, on the surface “Under The Skin” sounds like the 1995 sci-fi thriller “Species,” but in actuality it’s nothing like it. Based on Michel Faber’s novel, the book and screenplay demonstrate something much more nuanced, with incredibly creepy notes almost akin to a sci-fi-ish psychological horror. In fact, if you take that tenor and mix it with the not-so-sci-fi-ish tone of Mark Romanek’s “Never Let Me Go,” it may be a strong indication of how unique this film is likely going to be.
And Scarlett Johansson concurs. “It’s so weird, I’ve never been in a movie where the logline of the movie, where the plot has been so twisted. It’s crazy. ‘Are you eating people on the side of the road?’ I’m like, ‘No, no!’,” she said in a recent interview with Variety, then qualifying what the film is like: “OK, yes I do play an alien who is wearing my own skin. But it’s actually not a science-fiction film; it’s sort of a film that asks existential questions and much more complex than the logline.”
Scarlett Johansson has been urged to quit making commercials and concentrate on movies.
The ‘We Bought A Zoo’ actress is the face of Moet Champagne and Dolce & Gabbana make-up but her ‘Girl With A Pearl Earring’ co-star Tom Wilkinson believes the actress is wasting her talents in promos.
He told BANG Showbiz: “There are times I want to say to actors, ‘You shouldn’t be doing this, this is the one thing you shouldn’t be doing.’
“An actress I know quite well, who I haven’t seen for a few years now, but I used to know quite well is Scarlett Johansson. I want to say to her enough is enough already with the ads for make-up, she is such a good actress she’s probably making bundles and bundles of money being the face of whatever it is. But nevertheless I want to say she’s such a good actress!
“I was watching her yesterday in something she did with Dennis Quaid ‘In Good Company’. It’s not necessarily a good movie but she is such a good actress, I want to say that’s what you do best, the other stuff is secondary.”
However, Scarlett may not appreciate the advice as Tom – who can next be seen in ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ with Dev Patel and Dame Judi Dench – admits most younger stars don’t ask him for help when he works with them.
The 64-year-old actor said: “I’ve never been asked for advice, not quite in that sense, most actors just know what to do.”

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?”
