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!

Scarlett Johansson unveiled her debut album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” for journalists today (Feb. 12) at New York’s Joe’s Pub. As previously reported, the album includes 10 Tom Waits covers and one original (“Song for Jo”), and will be released May 20 via Atco/Rhino.
“Anywhere” was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, who told the crowd he was going for a “cough medicine/Tinker Bell” vibe, sound-wise. David Bowie, whom Johansson met a party just prior to beginning work on the album, lends his distinctive vocals to the tracks “Falling Down” and “Fannin’ Street,” while Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner and members of the band Celebration contribute throughout.
Johansson said she initially considered making an album of standards, but that the project slowly morphed into a Waits-dominated affair. “His melodies are so beautiful and his voice is so distinct,” she said.
The result, according to Johansson, has met with the notoriously persnickety Waits’ approval. “I sent him some of the early, early recordings, and he said, ‘Go ahead,'” she said. “I’ve heard he’s very pleased.”
