Penelope Cruz commented about the sex scene between her and Scarlett’s characters in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. She told a Spanish newspaper that the reportages have been exaggerated – as usual. Thanks to rope for sharing this and ScarlettSkies for the translation:
Question: And moreover, it looks like everyone is looking forward to your scene with Scarlett Johansson…
– (smiles) Well, I suppose you’re gonna ask me about everything that was published in newspapers regarding my character and Scarlett’s character, the way they talk about it, they’ve made it sound like a porn. Unfortunately -and I’m saying unfortunately for those who wrote it that way- Scarlett and I only share a sort of romantic scene… and well, I don’t want to reveal things about the film but let’s say that they made it sound much different from what it really is.
The internet has once again been buzzing of Scarlett’s possible ‘engagement’ to Ryan Reynolds as she was spotted looking at wedding dresses in Los Angeles. However, it is just gossip and Scarlett is not engaged, says her rep. Here’s a report from Newswatch:
Actress Scarlett Johansson has dismissed reports she’s engaged to marry her boyfriend Ryan Reynolds.
The Lost In Translation star, who has been dating actor Reynolds for nearly a year, was spotted looking at wedding dresses in Los Angeles, fuelling speculation she is planning to wed.
However, it’s Johansson’s relative who is preparing to walk down the aisle, and not the actress.
Johansson’s representative says, “A family member is getting married, not her. She is not engaged.”
Scarlett has booked a few talk show appearances to promote her new movie The Other Boleyn Girl. You can catch her on the following shows… And, as per usual, check back on the site for videos and caps. :biggrin:

New York Post posted this piece concerning a cover shoot that Scarlett and Natalie Portman recently did for W magazine. I truly cannot wait to see this editorial! I assume it will appear in the March issue of W. I will keep you posted!
If Natalie Portman looks a little nervous with Scarlett Johansson’s arm around her, it’s probably because she is.
The actresses, who star as rival sisters in the upcoming The Other Boleyn Girl, couldn’t seem more different, Natalie says.
“I get branded a lot as a good girl,” she tells W magazine for a recent cover shoot in Santa Fe, NM.
“I’m like the prude, and you,” she tells Scarlett, “are more sexy, more like . . . ”
“A harlot!” Johansson adds, finishing the thought.
In the film, Portman, 26, and Johansson, 23, vie for the affection of King Henry VIII, played by Eric Bana.
In the interview, Johansson riffs about shooting sex scenes, including one recently for Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona – in which she has a steamy affair with Penelope Cruz and a menage a trois involving Cruz’s real-life boyfriend, Javier Bardem.
“There are 60 people right there, eating, like, salami sandwiches!” Johansson says, adding that Cruz is “so open and funny and cute. I want to bite her when I see her!”
Superhero Hype! has learned that Lionsgate is really digging what writer/director Frank Miller is doing with Will Eisner’s The Spirit. They’ve already signed him for two sequels to the graphic novel adaptation and, from what the studio has seen, are expecting it to be a blockbuster when the action-adventure opens on January 16, 2009.
The Spirit tells the visceral, action-packed story of a man (Gabriel Macht) who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront… all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader.
I got my copy of the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue today and scanned Scarlett and Javier Bardem’s stunning Rear Window themed photo as well as a little behind the scenes clipping. Enjoy!

I came across eight new Boleyn Girl stills in HQ size as well as one on the set image of Scarlett and Nat in costume. The dresses and sets look so gorgeous! Enjoy the pics!

Scarlett has a message for you. Click here to listen to it.
Rumor has it that Scarlett shares a steamy – and controversial – sex scene with Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. New York Post has the scoop:
Scarlett Johansson has a steamy lesbian sex scene with Penelope Cruz in Woody Allen’s upcoming Vicky Cristina Barcelona. A source tells us: “It is also extremely erotic. People will be blown away and even shocked. Penelope and Scarlett go at it in a red-tinted photography dark room, and it will leave the audience gasping.” The women later have a threesome with Javier Bardem (below), who plays Cruz’s husband. The film also stars Patricia Clarkson, Rebecca Hall, Kevin Dunn and Chris Messina.
