New York Post posted this piece concerning a cover shoot that Scarlett and Natalie Portman recently did for W magazine. I truly cannot wait to see this editorial! I assume it will appear in the March issue of W. I will keep you posted!
If Natalie Portman looks a little nervous with Scarlett Johansson’s arm around her, it’s probably because she is.
The actresses, who star as rival sisters in the upcoming The Other Boleyn Girl, couldn’t seem more different, Natalie says.
“I get branded a lot as a good girl,” she tells W magazine for a recent cover shoot in Santa Fe, NM.
“I’m like the prude, and you,” she tells Scarlett, “are more sexy, more like . . . ”
“A harlot!” Johansson adds, finishing the thought.
In the film, Portman, 26, and Johansson, 23, vie for the affection of King Henry VIII, played by Eric Bana.
In the interview, Johansson riffs about shooting sex scenes, including one recently for Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona – in which she has a steamy affair with Penelope Cruz and a menage a trois involving Cruz’s real-life boyfriend, Javier Bardem.
“There are 60 people right there, eating, like, salami sandwiches!” Johansson says, adding that Cruz is “so open and funny and cute. I want to bite her when I see her!”
Superhero Hype! has learned that Lionsgate is really digging what writer/director Frank Miller is doing with Will Eisner’s The Spirit. They’ve already signed him for two sequels to the graphic novel adaptation and, from what the studio has seen, are expecting it to be a blockbuster when the action-adventure opens on January 16, 2009.
The Spirit tells the visceral, action-packed story of a man (Gabriel Macht) who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has a different mission: he’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City’s rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront… all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader.
I got my copy of the Vanity Fair Hollywood issue today and scanned Scarlett and Javier Bardem’s stunning Rear Window themed photo as well as a little behind the scenes clipping. Enjoy!

Scarlett has a message for you. Click here to listen to it.
Rumor has it that Scarlett shares a steamy – and controversial – sex scene with Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. New York Post has the scoop:
Scarlett Johansson has a steamy lesbian sex scene with Penelope Cruz in Woody Allen’s upcoming Vicky Cristina Barcelona. A source tells us: “It is also extremely erotic. People will be blown away and even shocked. Penelope and Scarlett go at it in a red-tinted photography dark room, and it will leave the audience gasping.” The women later have a threesome with Javier Bardem (below), who plays Cruz’s husband. The film also stars Patricia Clarkson, Rebecca Hall, Kevin Dunn and Chris Messina.
The talented Mycah has created a pretty new look for the fan archive. It features Scarlett’s 2005 Cosmopolitan outtakes, which are some of my very favorite pictures ever taken of her. If you have any fan art contributions to send in, please do it now as I’m doing to make a large (and overdue) update there very soon. You can email any to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can view a making of video of the Hitchcock inspired photoshoot featured in the March issue of Vanity Fair. As mentioned before, Scarlett is one of the many celebrities included. She is photographed with Vicky Cristina Barcelona co-star Javier Bardem acting out Rear Window. You can check out the video here. I’ve made screencaptures of it.
