Sheri from lashortsfest.com sent me a follow-up email with a few more details about Scarlett’s upcoming appearance. This is an excellent opportunity for those of you in the Los Angeles area.
Some more info on this. Tickets to opening night are open to the public.
The theater only holds 230 so there will be close proximity to the celebs
and they are participating in Q&A after. Ticket also includes an
afterparty which we hope the celebs will attend.
Tickets are available through our site www.lashortsfest.com for $30. Buy a
ticket and be part of Scarlett’s world premiere screening of her short
These Vagabond Shoes.
There are also some rumors floating around the web that Scarlett could be a part of the Iron Man 2 panel at this year’s Comic-Con. I will keep you all posted as I learn more.
Austin360 posted a short interview with Pete Yorn. It’s mostly about his current album Back and Forth but he did have a comment about his upcoming album with Scarlett and he hints at a possible tour (of sorts).
Is it fair to say your writing is more direct on the new songs? In the past, I’d maybe probably protect myself more by being vague. There was a conscious decision to make this more simple and straightforward.
Did that spill over into writing your upcoming album (‘Break Up’) with Scarlett (Johansson)? That was more like a flurry. I was trying to figure out how to get some female perspective in my songs.
Will you two tour together when that album’s out this fall? We’ll do a couple events. I think we’ll go to Europe as well.
A group of celebrities and dignitaries signed an open letter in Britain’s Daily Telegraph yesterday, urging the G8 to give all people – rich and poor in all countries – the support they need to live decent and dignified lives when they meet for the summit taking place in Italy.
Annie Lennox, Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson, Angélique Kidjo, Bill Nighy and many others put their names to the letter, which will also appear in the UK’s Financial Times.
“You have a unique opportunity in Italy this year to ensure that all people, in rich countries and poor, are given the support they need to live decent and dignified lives,“ they wrote. “You have taken important steps to this end at previous G8 Summits. In 2001 you acknowledged that industrialized nations had a responsibility to tackle global inequality through deeper debt relief and more aid, and you agreed to establish a Global Fund for HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria. In 2005, you promised to increase annual aid levels to $50bn.
While working together on ‘The Spirit’ Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson got to talking about the world’s bee crisis. Apparently, the issue was really affecting Scarlett because she couldn’t stop talking about it. But Samuel listenend.
“Scarlett was always talking about how the bees were dying and the planet was going to die. I was telling her that people keep saying the bees are dying because they want to charge us more for fruit and vegetables,” he explained.
“So she kept complaining about the bees, we had the same dressing room. ‘Sam, the bees are dying, we need to do something’, so I said, ‘Ok, what I’m going to do is buy you a beehive as your weeding gift’. “And she thought I was kidding.
So once they got married, and when the weather was right, I sent my sister out to a bee farm, we got about five pounds of bees. We got them some bee suits and hats as well.”
LOL on this, Samuel L. Jackson is the coolest guy!
I received an official email from the people at lashortsfest.com with some information about Scarlett’s upcoming appearance.
Just wanted to see if you would put out the word that Scarlett Johansson will be opening the 13th Annual LA Shorts Fest July 23-31 in Hollywood. She will be premiering her short film These Vagabond Shoes starring Kevin Bacon and will be participating in a Q&A after the screening. Tickets to opening night are $30 and available July 20 at www.laemmle.com. Come out and support Scarlett.
In site news, I’m aware that the gallery is down. There seems to be a server issue with databases and my host will get it fixed as soon as possible. I’m sorry for any inconvenience.
Beautiful Hollywood actress, Scarlett Johansson seems to be inspiring to a lot of people lately. First, she inspired Kate Perry’s song I Kissed a Girl, then she inspired Dolce & Gabbana’s make up-line, moved the world with her inspiring message for Rwanda, and now, she’s inspired Cacharel to launch a new fragrance.
With the catchy phrase, “Mon secret est à l’intérieur,” which is French for “My secret is on the inside!” Cacharel is taking a journey back to their roots with their newest feminine fragrance.
The new fragrance, Scarlett, is set to be launched in July by the French fashion and fragrance houe, Cacharel. This new scent is targeted towards young women, aged 15 to 25 years old.
The new perfume’s components include jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, citruses, tea leaves, pear, white musks and sandalwood. Made by famous perfumers Honorine Blanc, Alberto Morillas and Olivier Cresp, it is being touted as “romantic, fresh, and daring.”
Past Cacharel models and inspirations include Laetitia Casta with the fragrance, Promese, Kate Moss and her fragrance, Anais Anais, and Gisele Bundchen with Liberté. All of the mentioned celebrities have actively participated in their respective fragrances’ ad campaigns.
However, it isn’t yet clear whether the company can get Scarlett to participate in the ad campaigns due to her increasingly busy schedule. From the images of Scarlett advertisements on the internet, it looks like they went with a young and pretty model to stand as a mannequin carrying the perfume.
