A number of Oxfam’s high profile ambassadors, including actors Scarlett Johansson, Colin Firth, Kristin Davis, and Bill Nighy are calling on G8 leaders to urgently respond to global poverty challenges, starting with a boost in funds for climate change, the food crisis and development aid.
The 34th G8 Summit, which is taking place until the 9th, is a gathering of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Japan, the United States, Canada and Russia. In a letter drafted by the Oxfam ambassadors, the group remarked “The Millennium Development Goals that were set out in 2000 were chosen because they were ambitious, but also because they were realistic and achievable. The current delays in meeting these commitments are a disgrace.”
Scarlett Johansson designed this racer back tank exclusively for INTERMIX in honor of the third annual “VH1 Rock Honors” event celebrating the legendary band The Who. The tank is a grey racer back style with a coral music clef on the front, a row of dots around the neck and a “Scarlett” with a heart at the back center of the neck.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of the tank will be donated to the Save the Music Foundation.

Miss Scarlett graces the cover of the August issue of Cosmopolitan in a curve hugging red dress. Both the photoshoot and interview are new and the issue is on stands now. Please feel free to contribute scans if you’ve been able to obtain a copy already.
With a debut album, two provocative new movies, and an engagement all happening at once, it’s safe to say Scarlett Johansson is on a major winning streak. Listen in as she chats about her love of performing, finding a soul mate, and why timing is the key to making a relationship work.
Better lean in. Scarlett Johansson is about to reveal the secret of her much-touted sensual power. In her husky alto voice, the 23-year-old says “It’s kind of like this,” before proceeding to demonstrate the perfect come-hither gaze. She purses her famously pouty lips, drops her chin, and lifts her eyes coyly. But she can only hold the look for about five seconds before dissolving into a fit of laughter.
Sexiness, it turns out, is not something Scarlett takes all that seriously. Acting? You bet. Relationships? Absolutely. Politics? Don’t get her started. But, she says, “I don’t normally think about being sexy. I think, Do I look presentable? Do I look sane?” As if to make the point, she’s shown up to her Cosmo — Cosmo! — interview wearing glasses, an oversize button-down, and flats, her hair swept up into a demure ponytail.
But the truth is, even dressed like a schoolteacher, Scarlett has an innate and magnetic sensuality. That quality is on display in this month’s Woody Allen comedy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, in which she plays a sexually adventurous American tourist (critics have buzzed about the film, often mentioning her onscreen lip-lock with Penelope Cruz).
In May, she released her first album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, a compilation of Tom Waits cover tunes that showcases her sultry voice. Next up, Scarlett takes on the role of a woman confused about love in a romantic comedy based on the bestselling book He’s Just Not That Into You, hitting theaters this October.

I apologize for the massive lack in updates. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m spending the summer in another country so was without stable internet for a whole month – until now. I have also been very busy with work. I will, however, attempt to start catching up soon. I have so many things to add and many things that I’d like to upgrade and work on during the summer months before I go back to university.
Today I bring you a little update that consists of a couple of new outtakes from the Berlin Film Festival photoshoot taken earlier this year. Enjoy the pretty!

One of next year’s films that has been a little under the fanboy radar is the upcoming adaptation of Osamu Tezuka’s classic manga, Astro Boy about a young super-powered robot.
No word yet on her role, but Scarlett will join some sizeable voice talent alongside Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, Bill Nighy, Nathan Lane, Eugene Levy and Freddie Highmore (as Astro Boy himself).
Everything I’ve seen in regards to the production looks they’re getting it perfect and it sounds like well-deserved promotion for the film is about to start up in a big way.
Case in point, if you’re in LA next weekend, July 3 -5, be sure to check out Anime Expo 2008 at the downtown Convention Center. Both Imagi Studios and Summit Entertainment will be there to promote the film (at booths 913 and 915) and the film’s director, David Bowers, will be around the convention as well.
