Scarlett Johansson’s publicist has confirmed to Scarlett-Fan.com that there is no truth to the recent gossip regarding Scarlett starring as porn star Jenna Jameson in an upcoming movie.
And despite what you may have read at IMDb, Brilliant does not have a director attached to it nor a shoot date.
Last but not least, Scarlett has been informed about the Birthday Project.
The People’s Choice Awards are tonight and will be broadcast on CBS at 9/8c. Scarlett is nominated as Favorite Leading Lady and according to ThinkFashion she will be making an appearance too.
Best of luck to our leading lady and here’s to hoping she will be taking it home!
Edit: Unfortunately the award went to Cameron Diaz this time and Scarlett did not appear on the red carpet.
Scarlett Johansson may enjoy a good year at the movies, according to a recent survey by Fandango, the nation’s largest online, phone and mobile movie ticketing destination.
To compile the “Fandango Fifty”, the entertainment site asked filmgoers to rank the stars they are most looking forward to seeing on the big screen in 2007. The online survey was posted at Fandango during the last week of December 2006, when several thousand moviegoers voted for the actors most likely to draw them to the theater.
Leading the pack as the most anticipated female performer is Reese Witherspoon, slated to appear in the 2007 political thriller Rendition (#1), followed by Sandra Bullock (#2), Julia Roberts (#3), Keira Knightley (#4), and Drew Barrymore at #5. Scarlett Johansson was voted as number 12 with The Nanny Diaries and The Other Boleyn Girl.
“The Fandango Fifty shows the importance of star power at the box office, and reflects moviegoer excitement about the real variety at theaters this year,” says Fandango Film Commentator Richard Horgan.

Scarlett Johansson has rubbished reports she acted like a diva on the set of Justin Timberlake’s new music video. She recently teamed up with Timberlake for his new music video What Goes Around… Comes Around but the event has been dogged by speculation the actress behaved like a diva throughout. Johansson was said to have thrown a strop when she wasn’t allowed to smoke on set, and allegedly said, “How come we have fire dancers, but I can’t smoke?” Eating in front of her was also reportedly banned, with her bodyguard telling crew members to go somewhere else if they were going to eat.
However, Johansson’s publicist Marcel Pariseau has blasted the claims, reports the New York Daily News. He says, “Scarlett is always respectful of other people and never made this statement. Also, Scarlett doesn’t have a bodyguard.”
I have created 15 MSN icons of some of my favorite screencaptures of Scarlett in The Black Dahlia and added them to the fan archive.
Here’s a fabulous update to celebrate the passing year and the upcoming 2007. It’s been a busy year for Scarlett Johansson. Hopefully the new year will bring us more amazing performances, pictures and other projects from her. Cheers to that!
I received my copy of The Black Dahlia and created HQ captures of Scarlett as Kay Lake as well as from the special features, which included rare stills and interviews. Be sure to pick up your very own DVD if you have not already!
The rumor has it that Miss Scarlett is the star of Justin Timberlake’s video for his new single, What Goes Around. The video is being filmed this week in Los Angeles.
This is reported by Nick Cassavettes, the director of Alpha Dog:
I had the pleasure of visiting the set of the music video, What Goes Around Comes Back Around. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Shawn Hatosy, and of course, Mr. T. There is even an appearance by the lovely Miss Wahlquist, and it is directed by the incomparable Sam Bayer. The stuff looked great. Should be fun to see.
Merry Christmas, happy Hannukah and peaceful Holidays to Scarlett and the Johansson family, and of course, to all of you loyal visitors! Thank you for the passing year and for your visits, dedication and support.
