Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all our faithful visitors! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful time this holiday season. I will be busy with friends and family over the next several days so updates from me will likely not happen. I look forward to seeing you all next year and continuing to bring Scarlett fans the latest news and information.
Interview Magazine posted their list of the 20 most beautiful people of the decade and Scarlett hits it at #8. Click on the link here to see a lovely photo of Scarlett from 2003 and read a short interview with her that was probably given around the same time period.
According to Broadway World, Scarlett’s Broadway play A View From the Bridge will begin previews on December 28th. The play opens officially on January 14th for a fourteen week run.
In A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, Miller’s most passionate drama, Schreiber plays Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman obsessed with his 17-year-old niece Catherine, played by Scarlett Johansson. When Catherine falls in love with a newly arrived immigrant, Eddie’s jealousy erupts in a rage that consumes him, his family, and his world.

Scarlett & Pete Yorn were featured on the September issue of BlackBook magazine, where they gave an interview about their Break Up album. Read it after the cut and view the new magazine pic on the gallery by clicking on it!
Even when critics weren’t so kind to your first album?
SJ: I’ve had plenty of films that were released with mixed reviews. You win some, you lose some, I suppose. My only hope is that the album was actually listened to before it was reviewed.
Though Scarlett is only featured very briefly in the recently released trailer for Iron Man 2, I managed to grab 15+ screencaptures in beautiful high definition. This trailer focused heavily on the character of Whiplash played by Mickey Rourke. I’m hoping that they will release another one closer to release date that will focus on Scarlett’s character.
On a side note, registration for the gallery is open but will close once again on January 1st. If you are not already a member, I highly recommend taking a few moments to register.
– Movies: Iron Man 2 > Trailer #1
“Hopefully, I won’t be crucified for saying this, but I think the second one is even better”
The Iron Man 2 trailer has just been released and though Scarlett appears briefly it looks cool and it’s fun to watch. Watch it here*!
Scarlett is featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Time Out New York. I don’t have access to this where I live so if there is anyone willing to donate scans, we’d greatly appreciate it. A preview of the cover and interview are below.
Scarlett, a lot of movie actors who try theater get destroyed by critics. Are you concerned about being raked over the coals?
Johansson: The only thing that worries me about that is that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to work again. I’ve been praised, criticized and dragged through the dirt for 17 years. It would be heartbreaking, but what else can I do? Not go there?
Schreiber: That is really the heart of it. Once you get past all the hurt feelings and the ego, the truth is you just want to keep working.
Johansson: What else do we have? What, would we open a bakery? [Laughs]
Schreiber: It’s like the silly actor games: If you’re not prepared to make a complete jackass of yourself, in front of not only the audience but also the actors, then you’re not worth the money they paid to get into the theater.
Entertainment Tonight posted a video featuring some footage from the Iron Man 2 trailer that’s supposed to be making it’s debut on December 25th. While Scarlett is nowhere to be seen in this particular clip, I’m holding out hope that she will be in the full trailer. For those interested, you can view the segment after the cut.
“When you’re doing an action scene you want everything to be exaggerated. You’re not just punching somebody, you’re punching through that person and everything.”
SCARLETT JOHANSSON goes from blonde bombshell to black widow for her latest role in blockbuster sequel Iron Man 2.
The curvy Hollywood star looks stunning in a figure-hugging leather outfit as she takes on the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff – the Black Widow – in the hotly anticipated new movie which also stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow and Mickey Rourke.
Scarlett, 24, star of Lost in Translation, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and The Spirit, dyed her hair and went through a punishing fitness regime for the part but it was all worth it for a role she describes as “kicks ass”.
She said: “What do I like about the character? Everything. Her fabulous outfit. Her wonderful hair. Everything.
