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.
A rep for Scarlett Johansson has lashed out at Cosmopolitan’s U.K. edition, calling its January cover story on the star an “obvious attempt…to gain monetarily by misinforming their readers.”
Not only were marriage-related quotations attributed to the newlywed actress “wholly fabricated,” but Johansson “has at no point granted U.K. Cosmopolitan an interview, and she has never discussed her personal relationships with the publication,” her rep said in a statement obtained Saturday by E! News.
Further hammering home the point, Johansson’s rep cited what the 24-year-old said in the U.S. version of Cosmo’s August issue, long before she and Reynolds swapped vows in September: “I hate feeling like I have to share my personal life with anybody. So I’ll take the normal celebrity route and just say I’m going to keep my personal life private.”
Want to know what Scarlett Johansson wants this Christmas? Well, it has nothing to do with a diamond-encrusted dress, in fact its a ticket to Barack Obama’s Inaugural Ball next year.
The stunner revealed that this Christmas she wants her hubby Ryan Reynolds to give her a ticket to the special day.
But with tickets changing hands on eBay for 50,000 pounds plus, it will be a tough gift to deliver.
“I’m so excited about that ball and about politics – 2009 will be an amazing year, the Mirror quoted her, as saying.
Style.com (the home of Vogue) has sources that say Scarlett Johansson will be the new face for upcoming Dolce & Gabbana‘s beauty line! Scarlett is a huge fan of theirs and has wore several of their dresses to public outings, like at the “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” Costume Institute Gala and A Funny Thing Happened events. I personally hope it’s true! It would be nice to look forward to regularly released adverts again!
It seems that fashion’s Spring 2009 infatuation with celebrity campaign faces isn’t ending with Madonna for Louis Vuitton and Katie Holmes for Miu Miu. According to Style File’s sources, Scarlett Johansson has not only inked a deal to front a beauty campaign for Italian giants Dolce & Gabbana, she’s already been shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the gig. While the details are still under wraps— whether the campaign is for a new fragrance, or something else—one thing we can bet on is that it wasn’t a stretch for Scarlett to pour her curvy frame into the clothes. Not only has she worn the house’s wares on multiple occasions, she was also Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce’s date for this year’s Met ball. They say these things happen in threes. Perhaps the Madonna/ Katie/Scarlett celebrity fashion triumvirate is now complete. We can think of at least one group that hopes it’s so: models.
On January 27, 2009, the Weinstein Company and Genius Products will release Vicky Cristina Barcelona on DVD and Blu-ray.

Here is a report about the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize Press Conference.
American actress Scarlett Johansson, British actor Michael Caine and other entertainers said they hope their performances Thursday at the Nobel Peace Concert draw attention to laureate Martti Ahtisaari’s style of mediating as a solution to conflicts.
“It is important to remind young people that peace is the only real victory,” Johansson, 24, said at a news conference before the concert.
Johansson, who is co-hosting the concert along with Caine, said mediation should be the alternative to wars such as those being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq.
As said yesterday Scarlett was attending the The 2008 Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway today. She was a co-presenter with Sir Michael Caine. She also attended the press conference earlier. At the conference Scarlett went with minimal makeup, always a wise choice to accent her beautiful face, an animal print top and skirt. She really looked classy but still young and fresh. Whilst at the concert she wore a purple dress and her hair pulled back. Another stunning look! I’ve added photos from both of these events, enjoy!
