“I didn’t have any nicknames growing up, though I’ve heard that I’m called ScarJo, which I loathe. It sounds like a bad hip-hop name!.”
“You’re not going to find me at 4 a.m. hitting up the club, bottle full of bub…Maybe on a rare occasion. But I’ve just never been much of a clubby, nightlife kind of person…I’m not a social butterfly. I’ve never been part of a scandal that was really juicy.”
“I like cooking alone – I find it very therapeutic. I put on some music, maybe have a glass of wine, and make something like a turkey Bolognese or a nice frittata.”
Our girl graces this month’s InStyle Magazine cover to promote Iron Man 2! She looks super sweet, though some of us are not really feeling her curly hairdo, but she’s gorgeous anyway, and so fresh! Here you’ve got a sneak of the cover, if anyone can provide HQ scans please leave a comment and I will be contacting you!
This is just a rumor, but it could possibly be a reality. I certainly hope so, I’d love to see her in this
Stanley Kubrick may be gone, but he’s not done making movies just yet. According to Production Weekly, two big stars — Sam Rockwell and Scarlett Johansson, who will share the screen this summer in Iron Man 2 — are attached to a long-dusty Kubrick script that has been resurrected from his estate by his son-in-law, Philip Hobbs.
Hobbs found the single copy of the 80-page script treatment for Lunatic at Large — which was written for Kubrick in the late 1950’s by pulp author Jim Thompson — in 1999, and has been shopping it around ever since. The story is described as a dark mystery about an escaped axe-murderer. “When Stanley died, he left behind lots of paperwork,” Hobbs told the New York Times in 2006. “We ended up going through trunks of it, and one day we came across ‘Lunatic at Large.’ I knew what it was right away, because I remember Stanley talking about ‘Lunatic.’ He was always saying he wished he knew where it was, because it was such a great idea.”
The project has been in traction since 2006, when producer Edward R. Pressman became involved in the development of the project. This Production Weekly report marks the first time in two years that any movement has been seen. And while we don’t know many of the key details yet — there is no director attached — the news of Rockwell and Johansson being involved makes a bit of sense. This is about the time — in the lead up to Iron Man 2 — that they would be announcing new projects. And if they are to play Johnnie Sheppard and his attractive companion Joyce (respectively), as described below, we would likely be seeing such news in the near future. It’s an interesting project, but would surely hinge on a director — a dark period piece is one thing, and a Jim Thompson-penned work is something else entirely. Rockwell and Johansson are two very capable actors, but a director with a strong sense of visual style and a handle on narrative fluidity will be the key to the success of such a project. Until that happens, we remain interested but skeptical.

Kids adore her in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Parents love her in movies like The Other Boleyn Girl and Lost in Translation. And now, kids and parents alike are applauding actress and singer Scarlett Johansson’s recent request to Congress to add more fruits, vegetables, and healthy meal options to school lunchrooms.
Johansson has written a letter to Congress urging support for the Healthy School Meals Act of 2010, H.R. 4870, which was introduced on March 18 by Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado. The bill would reward school districts for offering plant-based vegetarian options and healthful nondairy beverages.
“I’ve been involved with efforts to feed hungry children for years,” Johansson writes. “Millions of families in America rely on subsidized school lunches, and these meals are absolutely crucial to children’s well-being.”
