Miss Scarlett looks adorable on the cover of the November 2008 issue of CosmoGirl. Thanks to my friend Mycah for the heads up! We will have scans of the magazine soon.
On what it’s like talking to college students about the election during the primaries:
It was amazing that these kids are just so well-informed and so interested. There were really obscure questions and debates that they wanted to lead — I couldn’t believe it! And it was amazing how many of these kids turned out. We made the environment friendly. I’m 23, and all of these kids are probably between 16 to 24. They’re my peers, so we can all talk on the same wavelength. We’re all connected by the same issues.
On celebrity endorsements during presidential elections:
In this day and age, the media has this 24-hour news cycle that they need to fulfill their obligation to. And it seems like celebrities are a huge part of that, so it just seems unavoidable. It’s important to bring to light certain issues. If this spotlight is already shining on me and I feel like there’s a worthwhile cause, then why not direct it toward that? I hope that my [involvement] encourages the youth population to go out and inform themselves.
This post is a bit off-topic but I figured some of you may be interested. As you may know, Scarlett’s older sister Vanessa Johansson is also an actress. One of her upcoming movies is Sharks in Venice, which will be available in the US on January 27, 2009. Here is the synosis and trailer of the movie.
Traveling to Venice to investigate the mysterious death of his father, David, a famous archaeologist and diver, unearths a killer secret that lies beneath the Venetian waters. When a ruthless mob boss discovers his findings and kidnaps his girlfriend, David must brave the dangerous, shark-infested waters once again to recover the treasure and rescue his girlfriend. A dark and mysterious chase ensues and secrets are revealed in this sci-fi thriller.
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynold’s Canadian wedding location wasn’t just to paparazzi-proof their nuptials last weekend, but to allow the couple and their guests to enjoy the great outdoors on Vancouver Island, People reports in its latest issue, on sale Friday.
Even the groom, 31, took advantage of the setting – fishing for salmon and halibut while other guests went horseback riding and mountain biking on the grounds of the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, a luxurious outpost of 20 canvas tents that caters to nature lovers.
“Scarlett wanted a ceremony with just family and a few select friends,” says a source close to the 23-year-old bride. Less than 40 people attended the wedding – but those who didn’t make the cut shouldn’t feel left out.
According to a friend, plans are afoot to throw a larger celebration for the couple, who began dating in April 2007 before announcing their engagement in May.
Congratulations to Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds who got married this weekend with a quiet wedding in Canada. From People.com:
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds made it official with a quiet wedding this weekend, a source close to the couple tells People.

Johansson, 23, began dating Reynolds, 31, last year shortly after his split from singer Alanis Morissette, who recently expressed well wishes on her ex’s engagement.
Further details from UsMagazine.com:
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are now husband and wife her rep has confirmed to Us.

I’ve added more of Cassie‘s Scarlett scans, this time ones from 2005. Scarlett was promoting films like The Island and Match Point that year and was quite literally everywhere! Mariana also contributed scans of the August 2008 issue of Brazilian magazine Gloss with none other than Miss J on the cover.
Scarlett Johansson is involved in two new, important campaigns.
Scarlett and The Spirit co-star Eva Mendes will be featured in a series of PSAs to encourage cell phone recycling. The celebrity pair are building awareness for this cause in hopes of lowering CO2 emissions by limiting the energy needed to create new phones.
Environmental Media Association and Lionsgate teamed up for the cell phone recycling campaign in conjunction with the December 25th release The Spirit, which stars both Scarlett and Eva.
To learn how you can recycle your cell phone, please visit Answer-the-Call.net.
Scarlett is also part of In My Name, a project of the Global Call for Action Against Poverty, delivered with the support of Comic Relief, Oxfam International and Save the Children. Other celebs who collaborate in this cause are Wyclef Jean, Annie Lennox, Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Mischa Barton and many others. Please visit InMyName.com for further details.
It never gets tiring to report on Scarlett’s involvement in all of these amazing campaigns. It is things like these that make me proud to be a fan.

MTV kind of found some news by accident when the Movie Blog’s Shawn Adler recently spoke to Sir Michael Caine, and the veteran actor told them he might be appearing in an adventure film with Scarlett Johansson. That film is actually a heist thriller called Brilliant, being produced by Relativity Media.
Michael Caine is without a doubt an international treasure, an actor in possession of a great and nearly endless talent. Bless him, the same cannot be said of his memory, which goes from spotty, to just plain wrong.
We’re going to give him the benefit of the doubt here (unlike with Batman 3 stuff. Did we mention that was wrong?) and assume this next bit of news is in the former camp, something that’s true even if he can’t recall the details.
Why? Mostly because it’s a doozy.
“I have ‘Harry Brown,’” the actor said of his elderly vigilante film. “Then I’ll probably do a film with Scarlett Johansson. I forget what it’s called. It’s an adventure film. I was told yesterday that they have Matthew McConaughey as the guy. I’ve got go home and read it again. It’s a heist adventure film.”
There you go. Breaking news that Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey are joining forces for what will likely become the most misspelled call sheet in history. (I always have to copy and paste both actors’ names from their imdb. This movie is one David Stathairn away from me never writing about it again, ever.)

I have made scans of Telegraph Magazine‘s September 6, 2008 issue. It is basically all about the Another Magazine spread but still worth a look for the cool behind the scenes snaps.
