She says her actions got lost in translation. Actress Scarlett Johansson was spotted holding hands with ex-squeeze Jared Leto at the Democratic National Convention Thursday – even resting her head on his arm at one point – but insists the political pairing was completely platonic.
“Scarlett and Jared have remained friends, nothing more, nothing less,” her rep told the Daily News Friday. “This is very innocent. Scarlett wasn’t even aware that Jared was going to be at the DNC.”
The rep said the “Avengers” star is still dating New York advertising guru Nate Naylor, her boyfriend of about a year. Johansson, 27, dated Leto back in 2004 before her two-year marriage to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds. Leto, 40, is known for his role in “Requiem for a Dream,” his band 30 Seconds to Mars and his long list of Hollywood hookups, which includes Paris Hilton, Cameron Diaz and Ashley Olsen. Sitting amid a sea of stars including Don Cheadle, Olivia Wilde and Elizabeth Banks, Johansson beamed Thursday night as Leto whispered in her ear and snapped photos with a cell phone.
As we previously announced. Scarlett attended yesterday to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte (North Carolina). You can watch the video of her speech clicking here and here you have some extracts:
“I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”
Johansson, dressed in rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag, spoke of growing up in a struggling middle-class family in New York City and living in a housing development for lower-middle-class families. Her family depended on benefits for school transport and food, she said, and some of her friends still depend on Planned Parenthood and Medicaid.
“That’s why I’m here today, to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”
“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”

Democrats have lined up some star wattage for Wednesday’s events at the Democratic National Convention. According to a tentative schedule given to CNN, Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington are set to appear in Charlotte.
No final details have been released, but given the Democratic party’s strong ties to the Hollywood, the rumor doesn’t come as much as a surprise.
Representatives for Johansson did not comment for CNN’s story. Washington’s said she was currently filming in Los Angeles, but did not deny a scheduled appearance.
If this ad featuring Scarlett Johansson looks a tad familiar, congratulations! You are a true fashion historian, as well as, most likely, a classic movie fan.
At first blush—yes, we just went there—this ad for Dolce & Gabbana foundation appears to showcase a fresh, natural look. Technically, it does. But look closer, young padawans—note the strong eyebrow, the slightly winged eyelid, the long, blond hair, the mouth that is both smiling and pouting.
Someone—and by someone we mean some Francophile at D&G—just might be trying to channel a bit of Catherine Deneuve into our ScarJo. Not that we’re complaining. Even when she’s just wearing a bed sheet, (and, we presume, a whole lot of foundation), the girl looks fantastic.
If you have been anxiously awaiting another dose of hunky superheroes or the gorgeous Scarlett Johanson…well, you’re going to have to wait a good while longer. But at least now you can know just how long. Disney has just confirmed that the “Avengers” sequel has gotten a release date: May 1, 2015.
The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios’ sequel to the biggest Super Hero blockbuster and third highest grossing film of all time, Marvel’s The Avengers. Joss Whedon returns to write and direct the UNTITLED MARVEL’S AVENGERS SEQUEL set for release May 1, 2015.
An industry insider had hinted earlier to MTV’s Kara Warner that this was a possible date, saying, “It looks like the release date might be May 1, 2015, but that can change depending on people’s schedules.
“The beauty of ‘The Avengers’ is that you’ve got so many people in this that even during the shoot if someone has to do another film they can just focus on [other characters].”
Why wait so long, you might ask? Well, mainly because the franchise has to film all of the other sequels featuring the Avengers heroes it has in the works first, such as “Iron Man 3″ (May 2013), “Thor 2″ (November 2013), and “Captain America 2″ (April 2014).
Director and writer Joss Whedon will be returning for “The Avengers 2,” though most other details have yet to be confirmed.
Scarlett is featured in the latest OK magazine, which is their “Hollywoods Hottest Bodies 2012″ issue. I added a small scan to the gallery.

A huge thanks to Philip for donating some rare Scarlett sounds to our site. Scarlett read a book called “The Dive From Clausen’s Pier” as an audio book in 2002 . Philip digitized his copy and donated these audio’s to the site. You can find them at the “Sounds” page and download all the three files to enjoy Scarlett’s beautiful voice while reading this book.
