The Prince of Wales attended a “double” royal premiere tonight, as he met the stars of a new film featuring one of his ancestors.
Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall met the actors from The Other Boleyn Girl at a screening at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square.
Natalie Portman, who stars with Scarlett Johansson as sisters Anne and Mary Boleyn battling to win the affections of Henry VIII, said she was very excited to meet the prince.
“It must be so strange to see a film version of your family,” she said.
The press archive has been updated with three new articles, two from USA Today and the third from ComingSoon.net. Like the recently added Cinema Blend interview, the ComingSoon.net one is also from the Boleyn press conference so it contains some comments you may have read before. There’s also some additional quotes that were not published by Cinema Blend, such as Scarlett and Natalie discussing The Horse Whisperer. A very interesting read! In these articles Scarlett also confirms that Mary Queen of Scots will be her next movie.
Here’s an interesting quote from Scarlett regarding her upcoming album. Speaking of, I’ve updated the music page with additional info on “Anywhere I Lay My Head”.
Johansson, meanwhile, has an album of Tom Waits covers out in May. With her distinctive husky voice, Johansson relished getting into the studio and isn’t worried whether the album tops the charts.
“How it does is ineffective for me. You can’t reverse the process,” Johansson says. “The people I care about are very excited about it. Who knows? I don’t have any kind of expectation. I love to sing.”
Last but not least, I’ve added a beautiful pic of Scarlett and Natalie. This came along the USA Today article and it was taken at the press conference.

Check out a new interview with Scarlett and Natalie Portman, courtsesy of Cinema Blend.
“I found strengths in every character that I’ve played. Even if it is a vulnerable person or someone who’s easily manipulated, there are strengths to every personality. Even if I wasn’t looking for a girl power kind of role, maintaining integrity in a character is a positive thing for women to see. It’s inspiring for women of all ages.”

MovieWeb has posted lots of Boleyn Girl related videos. They include two behind the scenes-videos and video interviews with the cast and crew, including Scarlett herself. It is certainly a good watch. Big thanks to Filip for the heads-up! As usual, I’ve made screen captures of all of the videos featuring footage of Jo.
I have added a video of Scarlett and Natalie being interviewed yesterday at the Berlin Film Festival premiere. This aired on yesterday’s edition of Berlinale Journal. Big thanks to Frederik for sending in the video and its caps!
Scarlett also attended an after party for Boleyn Girl after the premiere late yesterday. I’ve added a bunch of photos from this event. On top of that, all Berlinale albums have been updated with plenty of new shots of our stunning lady. Click here to see all new additions.
Variety gives The Other Boleyn Girl a rave review, especially complimenting Scarlett’s work!!! I am really excited as the early reviews were mixed and not so complimentary of Scarlett. It has been a while since I’ve read such a positive review of a new performance of hers. Check it out!
Playing less fast and loose with history than Philippa Gregory’s novel, “The Other Boleyn Girl” is a sexy, good-looking political bodice-ripper with an almost flawless cast at the top of its game. With a straight-arrow script by Peter Morgan (“The Queen”) and smooth direction by Brit TV helmer Justin Chadwick (“Bleak House”), pic has the feel of an Old Hollywood studio costumer freshened up with contempo technique and acting styles. Tip-top cast, led by Eric Bana and Scarlett Johansson as Henry VIII and Mary Boleyn, could make this score beyond upscale auds with aggressive promotion and good reviews.
For the red carpet premiere of The Other Boleyn Girl Scarlett Johansson wore a feminine raspberry Oscar de la Renta dress accessorized with Miu Miu pumps and Van Cleef & Arpels gems. A total of 43 images have been added in the gallery. More coming up! Meanwhile, feel free to post your thoughts on her Berlin looks.

The photos are coming in from the Berlin Film Festival The Other Boleyn Girl photocall and press conference. Scarlett looked wonderful in her cute little dress and tights and I enjoyed the press conference. I am in the process of adding the first pictures.
I also managed to grab the photocall footage, which can be found here. I apologize for the horrible quality but the live streaming quality went awry as soon as the stars stepped out and the cameras started flashing, heh. Unfortunately the press conference video audio turned out to be completely out of synch. If anyone managed to get it, please let me know!
