The actress, who attended President Barack Obama’s inauguration, is taking time off to figure out her next move.

We saw a lot of Scarlett Johansson in 2008: She had a critically acclaimed role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, the lead in The Other Boleyn Girl and a supporting part in The Spirit. And the actress is already back on the big screen in February’s He’s Just Not That Into You.

She spoke with MTV News about attending President Barack Obama’s inauguration and who she’d like to work with on future projects. Though her visit to Washington, D.C., was unquestionably memorable, Johansson didn’t get the chance to see Obama in person. Still, she was happy just to be a face in the crowd.

Variety reports Scarlett attended a party in celebration of Penelope Cruz’s Oscar nomination for Vicky Cristina Barcelona on Monday that was hosted by Salma Hayek.

Here is a little blurb:

In Hollywood Harvey Weinstein and Salma Hayek honored their friend, the Oscar-nominated Penelope Cruz (for Vicky Cristina Barcelona) at an all-movie star party in Salma’s white wood, jewel of a little house in Bel Air. Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, who she once played in a film where she should have won the Oscar, hang Salma’s walls with paintings. Her windows overlook L.A. The decor is stunning, contemporary and tastefully bright. The hostess received in a black cocktail dress wearing five-inch heels and carrying her baby, Valentina, in her arms. Some guests? Colin Farrell, Brett Ratner, Josh Groban, Prince, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Reynolds, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Charlize Theron, Stuart Townsend, Quincy Jones, Drew Barrymore, Penny Marshall, Bob Balaban, Adrien Brody, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones who say they’re moving back East.

Furthormore, in the photo to the right you can see Scarlett has newly deeply dyed red hair! One source reports it was for an upcoming role, and another said “She just said she wanted an autumn color.”

MTV News caught up with Johansson at the junket for He’s Just Not That Into You and asked her about the Astro Boy rumors.

“I had kind of sort of met on it and stuff, but I don’t know where that came from,” Johansson told MTV. “I had never been committed to it. I don’t know what happened to it.”

The film, based on the manga by Osamu Tezuka, tells the story of boy robot built to replace a scientist’s lost son. Even without Johansson, the project continues to boast some impressive voice talent, including Freddie Highmore as Astro Boy, Nicolas Cage as his creator, Dr. Tenma, as well as Nathan Lane, Bill Night, Eugene Levy and Kristen Bell.

With Johansson out and the studio’s financial woes made public, it remains to be seen if anyone will be replacing her in the role, much less someone of her star power, although her role, which was never specifically announced, may already have been filled by Bell (whose role is also, so far, unspecified).

While it’s not at all uncommon for Hollywood deals to fall through, the confirmation of this one does come at a time that leads to some speculation about the films’ future. Here’s hoping that Imagi will have Astro Boy on-track soon or, better yet, that they’ll confirm that it was never off-track in the first place.

Soon after I made my previous entry the very first advert of Scarlett’s Dolce & Gabbana cosmetic campaign was discovered.

Scarlett evokes the old school glamour and beauty of Marilyn Monroe. The campaign was shot by Sølve Sundsbø in a London studio. The photo is gorgeous and there are 2 other photos that are supposed to be less inspired by Ms. Monroe.

The line is very lux and each item comes in a gold case and velvet pouch. Much like the rest of their collection, the cosmetics are inspired by the beauty of Italia – from Mediterranean blues to the black of volcanic ash. They’ve added scent to their cosmetics as well, harkening back to retro lipsticks that had scents. Distribution for the new line is highly selective and in the U.S. it will be sold at Saks on Fifth Avenue in NY and Beverly Hills in Los Angeles.

We have learned that for Scarlett’s campaign for Dolce and Gabbana’s beauty line she will be styled like Marilyn Monroe! I truly can not wait to see this! Ads should begin debuting next month.

Scarlett Johansson has frequently been compared to the iconic blonde bombshell so it is perhaps no surprise that in the advert for the upcoming D&G makeup campaign, shot by Nick Knight protege fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo, Scarlett is styled as the ultimate sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. And dare we say, it’s all so very Dolce and Gabbana.

The 24-year-old actress wears a corset and knickers for her role while lying on silken sheets. Scarlett strikes a Marilyn Monroe pose with her short blonde curls and ruby red lips.

On picking Scarlett for their brand new cosmetics range, Stefano Gabbana, one half of the design pair, said, “Scarlett is sure of herself. She’s a beautiful girl, but she’s really easy going. She is very Dolce & Gabbana.”

He added, describing the range and why the famed fashion duo decided to make the leap into cosmetics, “We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”

The range will include lipsticks scented with rose. “We wanted to create makeup with a scent. Domenico and I remember when we were children and opened our mother’s handbags — the scent of her lipstick trailed out. I observed that when women open makeup, they smell it first.”

Dolce & Gabbana will make its long-awaited entry into color cosmetics early next month. The campaign will star Scarlett Johansson. Hopefully we will begin seeing adverts with her then!

On their new makeup collection thay said: “We see makeup as another thing for women, like a dress. We worked on the makeup line like we work on a clothing collection — you can change makeup like you can change your clothes, depending on your mood.”

The move into makeup is seen as a springboard that could transform Dolce.
