BROKE OUT IN… Lost in Translation as Charlotte, a lonely newlywed drifting through her quarter-life crisis in Tokyo.
WHY HER Her classically elegant beauty combined with her no-way-she’s-how-old? sophisticated demeanor allows the New Yorker to blend in to everything from period pieces to modern-day romantic comedies. Plus, we already know Woody Allen adores her.
WHAT’S NEXT She’ll follow up The Other Boleyn Girl with August’s He’s Just Not That Into You (yup, based on the book) co-starring Jennifer Aniston and Ben Affleck. In 2009, she’ll appear opposite Penelope Cruz in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona and in The Spirit, based on the classic Will Eisner comic.
The Other Boleyn Girl came in at decent #4 at the US box office last weekend, earning around $8,300,000. Very well done!
Here’s a reportage from Variety:
Sony had a much better courtside seat with King Henry VIII historical romancer The Other Boleyn Girl, which grossed an estimated $8.3 million from 1,166 runs in its debut for a lusty per-screen average of $7,118, according to Rentrak. Pic came in No. 4.
1. Semi-Pro, $15.3 million.
2. Vantage Point, $13 million.
3. Spiderwick Chronicles, $8.8 million.
4.The Other Boleyn Girl, $8.3 million

Before heading off for a mini-break I thought I’d remind you that Scarlett’s new movie, The Other Boleyn Girl, opens in North America this Friday. Be sure to go out and see it – and don’t forget to post your thoughts on it and Scarlett’s performance here or at the forum! The reviews have been very mixed so I’d really love to hear the opinions of the fans. I have to wait until March 7 to see it myself.
I will approve all comments and post news/pics again on Monday.
Top Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson could be heading to West Lothian, Scotland to film her latest movie.
Last year, it emerged the actress had been signed up to play Mary, Queen of Scots, the tragic monarch who was born at Linlithgow Palace. The movie’s production team are currently touring the UK looking for locations and West Lothian Council plans to get in touch to put their case.
Provost Tom Kerr said: “This will be a major international production which could rival the success of Mel Gibson’s Braveheart.
“We plan to make the production company aware of the importance of Linlithgow’s connection with Mary, Queen of Scots and to consider filming in our historic town.”
David Bowie has spoken about his work on Scarlett Johansson’s debut album, a collection of covers of Tom Waits songs.
The rock legend added backing vocals to two tracks on “Anywhere I Lay My Head” – ‘Falling Down’ and ‘Fannin’ Street’.
Posting on his official site BowieNet, the singer said: “The songs are great, really good Tom Waits stuff, and Scarlett’s performances are mystical and twice cool. She creates a mood that could have been summoned by someone like Margery Latimer or Jeanette Winterson.”
However, the veteran artist played down his contributions to the record, saying: “I’ve seen the press on this and I suppose the record company wanted to spin my involvement a little more than it actually warrants. All I contribute are these oo’s and ah’s on a couple of tracks.
Check out this great new interview with Natalie Portman over at Times Online. She mentions Scarlett quite a bit:
Back when Portman was 14, she was the face of Isaac Mizrahi, who would go on to cause a minor scandal at the Golden Globes two years ago, when he grabbed Johansson’s breasts. “Seriously, I would want to grab them. She’s got beautiful ones, but, Isaac, that was not so appropriate.”
And, of course, while Portman is famously Jewish, Johansson is a lesser-known Jew (because of her Scandinavian father, she’s called “the kosher Danish”). When Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek made a movie together, all the headlines blared “the Hot Tamales”. What should the media label a film starring two Jewish girls? Portman doesn’t miss a beat.
“The Hot Knishes,” she says, referring to the Jewish delicacy. She says how good Johansson is, adding that in her own forthcoming film, My Blueberry Nights, Rachel Weisz “will knock your socks off”. But her favourite co-star of all time?
“Stephen Fry, when we made V for Vendetta. I wanted to spend all my time with him. He is awesome.”
