Scarlett Johansson, who recently won the Super Bowl promotion, “Find Your Fortune at Flamingo,” co-sponsored by Flamingo South Beach condominiums and Fortune International, announced today that she will donate the one-year lease on the three-bedroom condominium to Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH). The donated unit will be used by the hospital for families of out-of-town patients as a peaceful respite during their child’s treatments.
Upon hearing the news of Ms. Johansson’s generosity, Flamingo developer Michael Lerner of Chicago-based MCZ/Centrum, enhanced the donation by exchanging her three-bedroom lease for leases on three, one-bedroom units so that more families could benefit from the partnership.
“Our patients and their families will certainly benefit from having these lovely homes away from home while they are in town and under our care,” said Cynthia Gutierrez-White, spokesperson for Miami Children’s Hospital.
“We were delighted when Ms. Johansson held the magic key to win the ultimate Super Bowl prize,” said MCZ/Centrum developer Michael Lerner. “And we were even more impressed when she suggested donating her Flamingo condo to Miami Children’s Hospital. We are committed to giving back to communities in which we do business.”
In Harvard Yard just before noon today (Feb. 15), there was ice, slush, wind, a 2-degree wind chill – and there was Scarlett Johansson.
The 22-year-old actress, at Harvard to be feted as Hasty Pudding’s Woman of the Year, set off on a 15-minute tour ready for the cameras, though not for the weather. She was hatless, all the better to show her bundled high vivid blond hair and sparkling small earrings. With gloveless hands tucked into her sleeves, Johansson defied winter in a waist-length black jacket, pipe stem black slacks, and narrow black shiny flats.
Leading the tour was Hasty Pudding player J. Patrick Coyne ’07, a Quincy House history and literature concentrator from Cleveland. Outside Harvard Hall, near Johnston Gate, Johansson had two questions for him first: “Why wasn’t my application accepted? Where can I apply to a graduate program?”
Passing Hollis Hall, the husky-voiced actress confessed, “I have a feeling my SAT scores wouldn’t cut it,” – but that her mother was still telling her it was not too late for a college degree. (“Thanks, Mom,” she said.)
Wow, wow, wow! Scarlett has made her first high profile appearance since The Prestige London Premiere in November 2006 at the 49th Annual GRAMMY Awards, which are happening as we speak! She is looking like a total sex kitten in a black Monique Lhuillier number. What a classy lady! I will add a few pictures before heading to bed. More coming up tomorrow.
When asked on the red carpet about her “romance” with Justin Timberlake, Scarlett responded: “We have a lot of friends in common, and Justin’s a sweetheart, and it’s always good to see him. But there’s a lot of speculation and I try not to read that stuff. I think when two people are single and are seen together, it’s immediately like a crazy feeding frenzy.”
If anyone was able to record her red carpet interview, please send it in!
The official video of Justin Timberlake’s What Goes Around doesn’t drop until Sunday, but in the meantime, be sure to view the Director’s Cut at iTunes or check out a capped version below!

If you are a regular visitor, you probably noticed that we have a new spring layout up. Credit for it goes to my fabulous friend Mycah of Purple Haze Inc. If you like her work and run your own site, be sure to order a layout from her because Mycah’s a true star.
I have also re-coded and updated every single page of the site and put up new information. Feel free to browse around and read on Scarlett and her projects.
One thing that I was hoping to have up by now is the new Video Archive but unfortunately I ran out of time and I am leaving for a little vacation next week. I will have it open as soon as I get back. It will be worth the wait, I promise.
Any and all feedback regarding the new design and site changes are much appreciated!
Scarlett Johansson went to Miami this past weekend for the Super Bowl celebrations and ended up winning a one-year lease on a $2.2 million condo in South Beach. So what does a 22-year-old blonde starlet do with a pad on the beach? According to her representative, “She won the lease, (but) we made a decision that day to donate it to a children’s organization. Possibly Miami Children’s Hospital, so visiting parents have a nice place to stay.”
Golden Globe nominated actress, Scarlett Johansson, came away with the “Super Bowl” of prizes today at the Sprint Style Villa on Ocean Drive Village, winning a one-year lease on a $2.2 million Bayfront condo at Flamingo South Beach. As part of the “Find Your Fortune at Flamingo” Super Bowl promotion, sponsored by developer MCZ/Centrum and real estate agency Fortune International, Johansson drew the lucky key that unlocked a specially designed “glass” house which encased a Lucite replica of the Flamingo building, thereby winning the one-year lease.
Johansson’s new South Beach crash pad is a direct Bayfront lanai unit at Flamingo South Beach. The three-bedroom, three bath condo has recently undergone a complete renovation and features a stunning contemporary design with a mix of sleek cabinetry and countertops, stylish kitchen and bath fixtures, exotic wood floors and natural stone surfaces. Johansson’s condo is located in the South Tower of the 1,688-unit community; sales in the North Tower go on the market in the next few weeks.
Scarlett Johansson didn’t want to blow people’s minds away in her new movie – at least not in a sexual way – so she insisted on looking like your average, everyday girl.
The director of “The Nanny Diaries” has revealed that Scarlett was “de-sexified” for her latest movie role.
The stunning 22-year-old actress decided she needed to play the dowdy girl-next-door for her portrayal of a college student working as a nanny to put herself through school in “The Nanny Diaries.”
Co-director Robert Pulcini revealed, “We thought about how we would approach Scarlett because she is very glamorous, but she’s the one who said, ‘I really think I should have brown hair and look like an everyday college girl in this movie.'”
Ben Stiller and Scarlett Johansson are this year’s recipients of the annual Hasty Pudding awards, given by a student drama group at Harvard University.
The awards, announced Monday, are given to performers who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment” by Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation’s oldest undergraduate drama troupe.
Johansson, 22, will lead a parade through Cambridge on Feb. 15, then attend a roast in her honor and receive the “Pudding Pot.” The ceremony for Stiller, 41, is Feb. 23.
Last year’s honorees were Halle Berry and Richard Gere.
