During her 12/17/08 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Scarlett Johansson blamed her cold on The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson, saying she caught it from him. She believed that for this reason her cold had some “value.” During her appearance on The Tonight Show, she blew her nose into a tissue provided by Jay Leno. All proceeds of this sale benefited the USA Harvest, the charity of Scarlett Johansson’s choice.
The online auction, which took place for a week sold for a winning bid of US $5,300.00.
I have added stills from her appearance and will be adding captures and the clip very soon with a much overdue update of the latest interviews and many more things. It’s been really hectic and I will be catching up sometime soon after the holiday.

Scarlett Johansson sparkled in an ivory strapless dress at Wednesday’s Los Angeles premiere of The Spirit. Her ankle length chiffon dress had a fitted ruched bodice and belted waist above a full skirt. She accessorized with silver sequined platform heels, a wide bracelet in her right hand and a flower barret in her honey blond hair, which was styled with a side parting. It was swept back on the left side with the hair clip. She vamped up the look with bright blush and lip color.
She was joined on the red carpet by the entire cast of Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes, Paz Vega and the missing main stars as of late: Gabriel Macht, Jaime King and Sarah Paulson.
I have already added 187 images and this is a big one guys, so except more photos and videos tomorrow! Scarlett looks so beautiful, I love this look, pretty perfect head to toe!

UK Cosmopolitan Magazine released the following statement to Hollyscoop.com:
“UK Cosmopolitan printed an interview with Scarlett Johansson that included quotes from an agency journalist regarding the actress’s marriage. We ran these quotes in good faith with the understanding that the interview was carried out with the approval of Ms. Johansson and her publicist. UK Cosmopolitan is taking the complaints by Ms. Johansson’s publicist seriously and is investigating the matter further.”
Soon after, Cosmopolitan released this apology on their official site.
“Cosmopolitan would like to apologize to our readers and Scarlett Johansson for inaccuracies in our January issue where we said she talked about her marriage and her relationship with her husband. We now understand Ms Johansson has not commented publicly on her married life and did not do so on this occasion.”
Scarlett is on or in a couple of international magazines right now. I have added some preview scans of the covers to the gallery. If you have any of these or can get them and wouldn’t mind donating, please don’t hesitate! While no the covers aren’t ‘new’ they are still stunning and always nice to have the full pieces of Scarlett’s editorials. And a good bit of the time the articles are new and if not it’s always nice for those non-english speaking fans to have to read.
Now, thanks to ‘Anthrax’ on the forum and ‘kroqjock’ we have the full spread from Glamour Russia and her page in January’s issue of Maxim. Again not new pieces themselves but nice to see. You can read some of the Russian excerpts here.

Scarlett Johansson along with Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck and Jessica Alba will join forces with Netflix and Feeding America to Combat Hunger This Holiday Season. The stars will create original holiday themed artwork for use in Netflix Holiday Gift Program with proceeds going to feeding America for Hunger Relief.
Extending a partnership forged during last year’s holiday season, Netflix, Inc. the world’s largest online movie rental service, and Feeding America (formerly America’s Second Harvest), the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, are joining forces on a holiday initiative that will raise awareness of and funds to combat the worsening hunger crisis in America.
The two organizations have created a unique campaign and have enlisted the support of Anne Hathaway, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Affleck and Jessica Alba, who are also committed to the fight against hunger. Each has created holiday-themed artwork that will adorn Netflix gift subscriptions this holiday season, proceeds from which will be donated to Feeding America.
Here is a little blurb from Scarlett, courtesy of Cinema Blend.
In all the promotional materials for the film, Silken Floss has been showcased alongside all the other women in the story, suggesting the role played by Scarlett Johansson is a lead, along with Sand Saref (Eva Mendes) and Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson). But Silken started off as a minor role– until Johansson expressed interest.
Johansson told a story at Saturday’s press conference for The Spirit about meeting with Frank Miller about the movie, even though there weren’t really any parts for her in it. “At the end of it I was like ‘I’m sad there’s nothing for me to do!’ and he said ‘I’ll think of something.’ He decided to expand this character.” Johansson added with a smile, “I got super, super lucky.”
Below you can find a lot of new Scarlett videos. Most of these are from The Spirit promotion (European press tour, Le Grand Journal: La Boîte à questions) and there are also a few clips from the Nobel Peace Concert. I will be making caps of everything soon.
Scarlett was on The Today Show yesterday.

Scarlett Johansson has had quite an active year. She starred in a couple of movies, married actor Ryan Reynolds and even indulged her inner rock star by releasing an album. But don’t think that Johansson is done with the music business just yet, because she has plans for a follow-up.
Back in the spring, Johansson released a Tom Waits cover album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, and she promises it isn’t her last. “I would love to do another album,” she told MTV News while promoting The Spirit, the new film based on Will Eisner’s comic book.
She also revealed that this time around, she’d like to tackle some original material, perhaps inspired by married life — which she’s not a fan of talking about in interviews. But she said she’s going to have to wait, since she already has such a busy schedule.
