Thanks to JustJared, we have some highlights from Scarlett’s upcoming Elle cover story:
Elle’s November Hollywood Issue hits newsstands nationwide on Tuesday, October 16th. HQ version of the Elle cover is now available here – gorgeous!!!
Edit: I’ve added preview scans of the issue by chateauxs! The editorial is beautiful, I especially love the back and white close-ups. By the way, according to the article, Scarlett’s album will be released in February 2008.

What do Gisele Bündchen, Orlando Bloom and Scarlett Johansson have in common? Each has signed a World Wildlife Fund “Hotter than I Should Be” t-shirt to be auctioned off on eBay from Oct. 3-12, 2007. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to WWF’s global conservation initiatives including fighting threats like climate change.
Why “Hotter than I Should Be”? Climate change is among the most pervasive threats to the Earth today. We have the power to address its root causes and limit its impact on the planet. Without action, climate change will cause the extinction of countless species and destroy some of the world’s most precious ecosystems, putting millions of people at risk. WWF is a leader in the field of climate science and a persuasive advocate for emissions reductions and increases in the use of energy efficient technologies. You can help us influence behavior and change attitudes… make your bid today!
I came across even more HQ production stills of Scarlett in The Nanny Diaries. Don’t forget that the movie is opening in the UK this Friday!

Paz Vega has also joined the cast of Will Eisner’s The Spirit. She will play the knife-wielding Plaster of Paris.
Principal photography began today in New Mexico. Lionsgate is working with Odd Lot Entertainment to get the film canned in time for release on January 16th, 2009. The production got just enough start to likely avoid the oncoming strike.
Sin City‘s Jaime King has joined the cast of The Spirit. She will be portraying the hypnotizing Lorelei Rox. The character had her first and only appearance in the September 19th, 1948 issue. Her character story arch, while short, was one of the most memorable. She is described as a modern-day siren with a voice that could kill.
Production will begin this month in Albuquerque Studios in New Mexico and is set for release on January 16, 2009.

We looked at the newsstand sales of the six leading celebrity weeklies – People, Star, US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Life & Style and OK! –over a six-month period ending June 30, as supplied by the Audit Bureau of Circulations. We eliminated all non-celebrity and collage covers as well as special issues with exceptionally large rate bases. Then we counted how many more–or less–issues the celebrity’s cover sold, as compared with the magazine’s average newsstand sales. Next, we factored in the number of full covers a celebrity graced. Finally, we ranked his or her consumer appeal using data from Encino, Calif.-based polling firm E-Poll Market Research to rule out flukes.
Here is what they said about Miss Johansson:
When it comes to fans, Johansson is hardly lacking. The Nanny Diaries star ranks sixth in likability, with an E-Poll score of 28. Perhaps the tabloids should show her some of the same. After all, when ScarJo graced the Jan. 22 cover of US Weekly, newsstand sales shot up 7%.
Eva Mendes chatted to IESB.net about The Spirit and working with Scarlett Johansson on My Brother the Pig:
Q: What about The Spirit? Are you… Sand Saref?
EVA: The Spirit? I’m Sand Saref! I start that in just a couple weeks! Yeah.
Q: So are you reading that old comic strip?
EVA: Yeah, I have some. Frank Miller gave me some of the old comics. And I’m excited because I’ve never actually played, like, a real Femme Fatal. And this woman is just, you know, she is just, she would eat you for breakfast. So yeah, I know, it’s kinda fun!
Q: What can you say about your costume?
EVA: Right now we are thinking a very old-meets-new, Rita-Hayward-ish kinda hair. We have a forties feel to some of the outfits and stuff but obviously modernizing Frank Miller’s, you know, lovely insanity. So it will be a nice little mix. But you, that’s what we’re thinking now, and that can at least change once we’re there, it usually does.
