From the duo that brought the critically acclaimed American Splendor (2003) to the big screen, directors Shari Berman and Robert Pulcini take the reins of The Nanny Diaries in this film translation of McLaughlin and Krausâ€™s bestselling novel of the same name.
Capitalizing on the bookâ€™s fame and Americaâ€™s fascination with the monarchal matrons of upper crust society, The Nanny Diaries offers a ruthlessly funny yet humanely tempered look at the life of one Manhattan nanny.
Scarlett Johansson headlines as Annie Braddock, a fresh-out-of-college anthropology major who experiences an identity crisis when trying to enter the professional world. Overwhelmed by her conflicting desires, an overbearing mother (Donna Murphy), and some all-too-familiar financial woes, Annie accepts a nanny position with the Mr. and Mrs. X family (Paul Giamatti & Laura Linney).
“Creole? Really? How fascinating. So is there still that whole voodoo thing?”
The young waiter from the island of Mauritius stood tongue-tied in the dining room of the Spa Hotel in Kent, England, baffled by the movie star who was focused on his French accent instead of his list of Frenchified entrÃ©esâ€”trout millefeuille and tenderloin en croute. He did not understand why his native dialect made her think of black magic, Mardi Gras, and dolls with pins.
“You know, voodoo? Witchcraft? Is that part of the culture?” Her voice lowered coaxingly. “You can tell us.”
Scarlett Johansson has a habit of talking forcefully and teasingly to strangers, charging past her own youth and soft, delectable looks to establish a beachhead of individuality. The waiter, the driver, an autograph-seeking fan, a man giving directions on the streetâ€¦all are treated with the same kind of good-natured raillery.

Miss Scarlett is featured on the cover of the April 2007 issue of Vogue. This is her first time on the cover of the US edition while she’s already been featured twice in UK version. The gorgeous cover shot can now be found in the gallery! Some highlights from the interview:
â€¢ On Woody Allen: “I’d sew the hems of his pants if he asked me to.”
â€¢ On Justin Timberlake: “We had fun together, but it’s not like the first time I’ve ever hung out with him. I think this happens because we’re both single and in the spotlight, and obviously Justin’s a very high-profile person.”
â€¢ On her and Justin being an item: “Not true.”
â€¢ On her break-up with Josh Hartnett: “I’d rather not comment on my personal life in that way.”
She’s “criminally sexy,” Allen, 71, said in an e-mail sent to Vogue about his muse. “She is unlike anyone who has come before her, and while she is a much stronger actress in every way, there is a tiny bit of Marilyn Monroe in her zaftig humidity.”
The April 2007 issue of Vogue hits the stands today so be sure to pick up your copy! Scans would also be much appreciated.
Scarlett Johansson will host Free Arts NYC’s 8th annual art and photography auction and benefit, ‘Portraits & Polaroids’, on April 23, 2007, in New York.
Dior has signed on as the fashion sponsor of Free Arts NYC’s 8th annual art and photography auction and benefit, ‘Portraits & Polaroids’, to take place April 23 at Milk Gallery. Scarlett Johansson and Liv Tyler will co-host alongside co-chairs Amy Sacco and Mary Alice Stephenson, and Simon de Pury will serve as auctioneer.
Holly Dunlap, Donna Karan, Alexis Bryan, Tory Burch, Lauren Davis, Damon Dash and Rachel Roy, Michael Kors, Derek Lam, Carolyn Murphy, Zac Posen, Narciso Rodriguez, Elizabeth Saltzman Walker, Peter Som, Annabel Tollman, Vera Wang, Jacquetta Wheeler, and Rachel Zoe are among the fashion community members on the benefit committee.
In 2006, the event raised over $555,000. Vanity Fair also continues on as the eventâ€™s magazine sponsor. Tickets start at $250 and are available at www.freeartsnyc.org.
According to Vogue UK, Scarlett has been signed by Louis Vuitton to shoot her third season of advertisements for the label. She is rumored to be shooting the autumn/winter photos in Los Angeles next week with photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
According to New York Post, Scarlett is in the running to play Nellie Forbush in a revival of South Pacific at Lincoln Center.
Lincoln Center and director Bartlett Sher, who staged the theater’s Tony Award-winning musical The Light in the Piazza last year, have already begun drawing up plans for the January 2008 production.
Reese Witherspoon and Kelli O’Hara (The Pajama Game) are also on Lincoln Center’s wish list. But Johansson is known to be a huge fan of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, and her agents have been telling theater producers that she’d love to star in a Broadway show.
The world premiere of The Nanny Diaries will be held April 9 in New York City. CaesarStone and Swiffer are holding competitions in which you can win tickets for the premiere. Be sure to enter and see if you win. Good luck!
