Scarlett’s Broadway play official opened yesterday and the first reviews are coming in. Here is what some of them are saying about her performance:
Johansson, an actor I never thought had much range, more than holds her own, and brings a stirring vulnerability and subtlety in the role of Carbone’s neice. Her performance feels wholly authentic and earned, and during her anguished love scene I could see tears streaking her cheeks. You can fake that on film, but not on stage. – Gothamist
Johansson, making her Broadway debut, is a revelation, giving a shaded, nuanced performance. At first, she’s sweetly fond of her uncle, only later realizing his unspoken attentions. And check out her impeccable Brooklyn accent. – ABC
Looking shapely in tight sweaters and skirts yet still girlishly oblivious to her sensuality, Johansson embodies this dilemma with touching dignity, as much in her moments of cautious distance as those of heated self-assertiveness. – Variety
Johansson disappears so completely into the role of Catherine, the plucky but naïve niece of a longshoreman, that you won’t stop to consider the qualities that make her distinctly suited to the part. Only afterward will you likely realize the actress’s youthful sensuality and capacity for good-natured goofiness constitute a perfect fit for this sheltered 17-year-old struggling to come to terms with her effect on men — her uncle, in particular. – USAToday
Johansson, sporting a convincing Brooklyn accent, is touching as the young girl blossoming into womanhood. Although like most stage tyros she needs to do more work in terms of projection and stage presence, she more than holds her own opposite her dynamic co-star, which is saying something indeed. – Hollywood Reporter
It was evident to me from her performance in “Girl with a Pearl Earring” in 2003, the same year she co-starred with Bill Murray in “Lost in Translation,” that Scarlett Johansson was an actress of major talent, not just star quality. She was 19 then; she had already been acting professionally for a decade. As Catherine, Johansson must be a sheltered girl who receives two shocks in quick succession – the jolt of love and the thunderbolt of betrayal — that force her to figure out how to grow up quickly; it is riveting to watch her do so. – The Faster Times
So many new things for today that I know you’re going to love! First of all, the site information has been updated, Scarlett’s Biography, the Quotes page & the Supported Causes one have all been completed with all from 2009/2010. There are also lots of new pics in the gallery. Some photos of Jan 20th’s A View From The Bridge show with Scarlett on stage, two new stunning Mango spring/summer 2010 campaign ads, and also a pic with an article of Scarlett & Liev Schreiber for Vogue magazine, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. I hope you all like all this news, and remember that A View… opens tomorrow so we’ll get the first official reviews soon! Last but not least, here* you have the first video clips of Scarlett in the play! Yeah! Enjoy!

As you all probably already know, there was a horrible tragedy this week in Haiti. Here is Scarlett’s official statement:
“My heart goes out to the millions of people affected by the tragic events that have afflicted Haiti. As an ambassador of Oxfam, I urge those who are able to donate to the organization which currently has over 200 people on the ground and a team of 15 highly-experienced emergency specialists based in the capital that are responding with public health, water and sanitation services to prevent the spread of water borne disease.”
Some new A View From The Bridge photos have been released, I’ve added them all to the gallery, and also the poster of the play, that we didn’t have yet. Enjoy!
So, here is the first official photo of Scarlett & Liev Schreiber in A View From The Bridge! Remember that the play opens officially on January 24th, now it’s still in previews. Read a great interview with co-star Liev below.
“I’ve just been really impressed with her composure. Broadway is a pressurized situation and we’ve had a really short rehearsal period,” Liev says. “It’s really amazing watching her handle it so well and so beautifully. She’s really evolved so much especially over the last two to three weeks. I’m blown away by her. I’ve kind of fallen for Scarlett.”
Sooo finally! Scarlett’s shortfilm These Vagabond Shoes starring Kevin Bacon is out, and I personally loved it. It’s a shame that the only verison we have it’s in russian but our girl Anthrax from the forum translated it for us, if you’re interested you can see the translation in spanish/english here*. Enjoy, and please leave all your opinions!
