She is the smouldering glamour puss of Hollywood, but Scarlett Johansson says that her good looks aren’t always the best asset. The actress insists that her appearance has occasionally impacted on her career, causing her to miss out on roles she coveted because she was thought of as ‘too sexy’.
Discussing the issue, the We Bought A Zoo star revealed: ‘That has happened to me before, yeah. That’s always an unfortunate thing to figure out. “Why can’t you see?!” For me, I would imagine casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. ‘It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definitely not sexy.’ Despite her complaint, the 27-year-old does take care of herself and says the secret to her looks are staying healthy, but not being too strict with herself when it comes to diet and exercise.
‘I live a relatively healthy lifestyle I think. Ish. I’m not overly strict. I like to go out and enjoy myself and drink a couple of glasses of wine and stay out late occasionally and eat a slice of cake. ‘I work out and eat well most of the time and try to get some rest. ‘[I eat] lots of kale. I try to stay away from meat and dairy and that.
Director Cameron Crowe was able to see past Scarlet’s famous curves and pout, and cast her as zookeeper Kelly in We Bought A Zoo, which is released on DVD this week.
‘It was amazing to be able to work with him,’ says Scarlet. ‘Any time we have ever done any work together has just been amazing. You leave the audition feeling like a million bucks whether you got the role or not: “I did work today that was hard and good”.
‘He makes you think. You’re thinking outside the box. You’re trying everything a million different ways; you’re discussing the depths of the character that you see that you want to develop. To finally be able to do that over months and build a character with him was great. It was a beautiful thing.’Scarlet had to get up close and personal with a number of animals, from tigers to snakes, during filming of We Bought A Zoo. But she reveals that there is only one that makes her squeamish.
‘Cockroaches. I hate them. I have a weird childhood trauma from cockroaches. I can’t stand them. Seriously. I could pretty much do most things that I didn’t want to do but any kind of cockroach situation, even if meant kind of the performance of a lifetime I don’t think I could do it. I’d be paralyzed by them. Tigers and lions are majestic. Cockroaches? No way.’ She also worked with children in the film, and says that she wouldn’t mind having some of her own in the future. ‘Someday it would be nice,’ Scarlet says. Not any time soon. It would be nice to have a couple of kids running around.
Scarlett attended the presentation of Dolce & Gabbana couture line held in the Antique Theatre in Toarmina, Italy on July 9th. I added 3 pics, which are kinda blurry. Scarlett can be recognized by her white skirt!

She will soon have three superhero movies under her belt so it’s no wonder film producers are keen to get her experience on board for a fourth.
Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been offered £13million to star in the sequel to Avengers Assemble. The monumental fee will make the 27-year-old the highest paid female actor of all time. Scarlett, who plays the role of Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, is being tempted to star as the character for the third time in Avengers 2. The huge fee would eclipse the £12.2million paid to Angelina Jolie for her role in The Tourist, back in 2010. Avengers Assemble became the third highest grossing movie in history by taking £936 million at the box office, and Scarlett is seen as an integral part of its success. A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Scarlett is the hottest star in Hollywood and her inclusion in the sequel is a must. ‘Producers think that as the only lead woman in the film male fans have found her a key ingredient – both for sex and story appeal. She is loved by critics too.’
Johansson is the only female member of the Avengers.
Scarlett Johansson could receive over $66,000 in restitution from celebrity hacker Christopher Chaney, it is reported. The Hollywood starlet was among other female performers who had their privacy invaded in recent months by the notorious computer criminal. And TMZ reports that the U.S. Government is recommending to the judge handling the case that Scarlett and other people targeted should receive money for their trouble. Legal documents filed with the U.S. District Court in California sets out how prosecutors feel Christopher should be dealt with.
He had pleaded guilty to nine hacking related felonies earlier this year after stealing and then uploading raunchy photos of stars like Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and Renee Olstead. Christina is down to receive $7,500 while Renee would get over $76,000. Prosecutors are also pushing for Christopher to spend 71 months behind bars. He will be sentenced on July 23 when he is due back in court.
