The Academy of Cinema and Television announced the collaboration with Actress Scarlett Johansson, the sixth such collaboration in a series to offer “always-available” personal insights to the path a rising star often takes as they struggle to reach the top of their field — be it acting, modeling, singing or dancing. The series, in a Q & A format, enables performing arts students and their parents to instantly gain personal insight online about the celebrities featured in the series. Together with the aid of the Internet, the series will give parents, students, and the Internet community insight into the industry from an actress who began her career as an eight year old and is now world renowned icon.
Jack White, Director of the Academy of Cinema and Television, is thrilled that a brilliant, but often controversial, former child actor like Johansson will be sharing her childhood experiences as well as offer some industry insider tips.
Scarlett has donated a “Doodle” that is being auctioned on eBay to benefit NF, Inc., a national non-profit organization that supports families affected by Neurofibromatosis. The auction began yesterday at 6PM (ET) and continues through May 18. Don’t miss your chance to win a piece of art drawn by Ms. Johansson herself!
Marriage has always been part of Scarlett Johansson’s plans, a pal tells People.
“I was just so happy when she told me [about her engagement to Ryan Reynolds, 31],” said designer Roland Mouret – who just saw the actress at Monday’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in New York.
“It’s something she’s really wanted – to meet someone and get married,” he added, speaking to People at the Vogue magazine launch of Tim Walker’s portraits in London. “She’s just such a great person and I’m so happy for her and wish her every happiness. She deserves it.”
Mouret and Johansson first met when she was filming in London in 2004 and stopped by his studio. The 23-year-old then helped put him on the A-list fashion map by wearing his coral taffeta gown to the 2005 Golden Globes, followed by a black Mouret number to the Academy Awards.
According to the Superheroes-R-Us blog, Lionsgate has moved the release date of Frank Miller’s The Spirit up to December 25, 2008 – from the original January 16, 2009 date. If this is indeed true, we will have two Scarlett films to enjoy late this year; The Spirit and He’s Just Not That Into You (to be released October 24). And then, of course, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, set to premiere at Cannes this month.
Looks like newly engaged Scarlett Johansson can cross shopping for a bridal gown off her to-do list.
“I’m definitely doing her wedding dress,” fashion’s Stella McCartney, 36, told People at a Tuesday night cocktail party she hosted at her West Hollywood boutique – where she arrived fashionably late along with the couple Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend.
There’s only one hitch before Johansson, 23, gets hitched to fiancé Ryan Reynolds (who proposed recently), according to McCartney: “She doesn’t know it yet.”
As earlier reported, Scarlett is in attendance of tonight’s “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It is a different look for Scarlett and she’s looking absolutely stunning! You can definitely see a glow there. What do you think of her Dolce & Gabbana gown? I think she looks like a fairy princess.
Update: First photos have been added in the gallery.

Congratulations to Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds, who have announced their engagement today!!!
After dating for more than a year, Scarlett Johansson is set to marry her boyfriend Ryan Reynolds, People has learned exclusively.
“They’re both thrilled,” Johansson’s rep Marcel Pariseau tells People.
Reynolds, 31, currently filming the aptly named The Proposal in Boston with Sandra Bullock, recently popped the question to Johansson, 23. The couple have not set a wedding date.
The Nanny Diaries star is expected to show off her sparkler at Monday night’s Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Gala in New York. Sources say Johansson is eager to “show off her rock” with her Dolce & Gabbana gown.
I have been going through the donations bin this weekend, which includes some really cool stuff. Romina and Joanna sent in scans from new Dutch and Polish magazines (including some new pics!) and Roberto contributed screencaps of deleted scenes of The Nanny Diaries, which can be found on the Italian DVD. I’ve scanned Scarlett’s page from the FHM ‘100 Sexiest’ special and added plenty of additional pictures to the New York, I Love You on set albums. Click here to view all new additions. Enjoy the new goodies and, again, thanks so much to everyone who contributed!
