As many of you already noticed, I added the photo coverage of Scarlett’s appearance on Tonight Show with Jay Leno earlier this week. After some technical difficulties, I was finally able to upload the video today. It is a lengthy interview and, as usual, Scarlett handles herself with so much class – even when it comes to some rather strange questions. Loyal fan Phil also sent in a video of Scarlett’s appearance on The Early Show from August 12. I’ve added it and made some screencaps. Happy downloading!
Some of you noticed the site offering a competition to win a ‘threesome’ with Scarlett Johansson to promote Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Scarlett rep has informed me that the website is not Scarlett’s and they are working on getting it removed.
You may be interested in knowing that Amazon writer Dirk Blackman operates a blog and he has mentioned the Scarlett movie a couple of times already. Here’s one interesting write up:
We seem to tackle subjects like that – we wrote a script about Amazons for Scarlett Johansson. Before they read it, everyone heard about it and thought – “Amazons… girls in skimpy outfits playing at swords. Sounds dumb.” But we played it straight and wrote something along the lines of Seven Samurai. Changed a lot of minds. In fact, Lion’s Gate just picked up the script and are moving forward on it aggressively.
Dirk Blackman and Howard McCain are trying to corner the market on sword-swinging fantasy adventures.
Blackman and McCain have been hired to rework the script for Conan, as in the barbarian, for Lionsgate. And the writing team’s action-adventure screenplay Amazon, an epic about female warriors to which Scarlett Johansson has been attached, is sailing out of turnaround toward Lionsgate as well, with Neal Moritz and his Original Film banner coming on to produce once the deal is completed.
Director searches are under way for both.

The press section has been updated with the following new pieces:
Here are a couple of interesting quotes from the articles:
“I’m productive, I think, in other aspects of my life, my career maybe. I don’t know. I think that I want to work not just to work. I want to feel like there’s a purpose behind it. It’s hard to find good roles for young women. They don’t come along that often. It’s a kind of weird age group. I’m twenty three and it’s like I’m a young woman, quite a young woman, but I’m at a certain kind of transient phase in my life and things are changing for me. Obviously, I’m growing up. I think it’s a hard time. There are only so many parts available for that. Like I said too, I’ve been focusing on other things that I’ve been excited about.”
“Any time someone makes a huge generalization about you you’re just like, ‘Okay. I guess so.’ But I certainly work with certain non-governmental organizations that I work hard for and I try to use whatever interest that people might have in me to shine the spotlight on these certain causes that I’ve researched and believe in and seen firsthand work. I try to focus on those things that I’m passionate about. I’m hard to distract. It’s probably a good quality and a bad quality, but when I’m focused I’m focused on something.”
Just a friendly reminder that Scarlett will be on NBC’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight!
We will have a video clip as well as screencaptures of her appearance as soon as possible. However, I am going away for the weekend so if I won’t be able to add it tomorrow morning, it will be added first thing when I get back next week. Thanks for your patience.
I have – finally – updated the fan archive. Unfortunately it was long and overdue but to make up for the slow updates, I’ve made sure to provide lots of cool graphics. I snagged many from Scarlett’s LJ communities and credited all creators. Thanks to all who contributed, especially ScarlettSkies!
I’ve added more of Cassie‘s older Scarlett scans in the gallery, this time from the year 2004. Enjoy the vintage treats, including four cover stories. The Elle photoshoot is one of my all time favorites.
