LA Times published an article with Scarlett a few days back. She talks about her struggle to keep her personal life private and Cosmopolitian‘s fabrication, in addition to her many projects. Read it here in our press archive.

Talking with her brings to mind a line about another great-looking movie dame, Jessica Rabbit; Scarlett Johansson isn’t bad, she’s just drawn that way. Like Mrs. Rabbit, her ripe looks and a voice like scorched velvet have a strange effect on those around her.

It’s a sad state of affairs when a young actress is notable for not behaving like an idiot, but it must be said that for all her paparazzi appeal, she doesn’t lure it with wildly inappropriate behavior.

“I don’t know when that became a standard for young people.” She adds that she and her friends go out to dine and dance like anyone else, “but we’re all responsible young adults, within reason I suppose, and that should be the norm. I think that is the norm, really, but maybe it’s not just interesting.

Penélope Cruz is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 2009 Critics Choice Awards. The film is also up for Best Comedy.

In the recent past, the awards ceremony was taped for later viewing, but in 2009 viewers can watch the live presentation airing on Thursday evening, January 8, 2009 on VH1 from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.

The Spirit made a poor debut at #9. The film earned $6.5 million over the weekend and $10.4 million for the four days.

Topping the list was 20th Century Fox’s Marley & Me, which earned an estimated $37 million. The dramedy, based on John Grogan’s best-seller, set a new Christmas Day record with $14.7 million on Thursday, surpassing 2001′s Ali ($10.2 million) – a record also broken by fellow newcomers The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ($12 million) and Bedtime Stories ($10.5 million).

I actually went out and saw the film myself and personally was disappointed. I can see why Scarlett would want to do the film as it does have some very cool female lead characters and visual style but still it just wasn’t enough. She did have had some wicked cool costumes, lines and a memorable entrance so worthy of Johansson fans to see, but all in all the movie didn’t live up to my own expectations. Feel free to discuss your own thoughts on the movie in the forum!

During her 12/17/08 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Scarlett Johansson blamed her cold on The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson, saying she caught it from him. She believed that for this reason her cold had some “value.” During her appearance on The Tonight Show, she blew her nose into a tissue provided by Jay Leno. All proceeds of this sale benefited the USA Harvest, the charity of Scarlett Johansson’s choice.

The online auction, which took place for a week sold for a winning bid of US $5,300.00.

I have added stills from her appearance and will be adding captures and the clip very soon with a much overdue update of the latest interviews and many more things. It’s been really hectic and I will be catching up sometime soon after the holiday.

Scarlett Johansson sparkled in an ivory strapless dress at Wednesday’s Los Angeles premiere of The Spirit. Her ankle length chiffon dress had a fitted ruched bodice and belted waist above a full skirt. She accessorized with silver sequined platform heels, a wide bracelet in her right hand and a flower barret in her honey blond hair, which was styled with a side parting. It was swept back on the left side with the hair clip. She vamped up the look with bright blush and lip color.

She was joined on the red carpet by the entire cast of Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes, Paz Vega and the missing main stars as of late: Gabriel Macht, Jaime King and Sarah Paulson.

I have already added 187 images and this is a big one guys, so except more photos and videos tomorrow! Scarlett looks so beautiful, I love this look, pretty perfect head to toe!

Here is a little blurb from Scarlett, courtesy of Cinema Blend.

In all the promotional materials for the film, Silken Floss has been showcased alongside all the other women in the story, suggesting the role played by Scarlett Johansson is a lead, along with Sand Saref (Eva Mendes) and Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson). But Silken started off as a minor role– until Johansson expressed interest.

Johansson told a story at Saturday’s press conference for The Spirit about meeting with Frank Miller about the movie, even though there weren’t really any parts for her in it. “At the end of it I was like ‘I’m sad there’s nothing for me to do!’ and he said ‘I’ll think of something.’ He decided to expand this character.” Johansson added with a smile, “I got super, super lucky.”
