“I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me.”

I would like to pour Scarlett Johansson a big ol’ glass of STFU for telling the UK’s Guardian that she felt being named in Dylan Farrow’s New York Times letter about Woody Allen was “irresponsible.” Johansson was one of the actors personally called out by Dylan Farrow for continuing to work with Allen despite the sexual abuse allegations against him. While I’m sure being personally named for her complacency is uncomfortable, Johansson has a lot of nerve implying that Farrow — who has maintained the same story regarding the abuse she allegedly suffered for 20 years — has some sort of responsibility to her and her Google alerts. Responsibility for what? To not criticize those who continue to work with an accused child molester? Reminder: for Dylan Farrow, these allegations against Woody Allen are not allegations at all — they are facts. Even among many of those who think Mia Farrow is the world’s most devious brainwasher and planted false memories in young Dylan’s head, the evidence suggests that Dylan, at the very least, believes Woody Allen molested her. Asking those who continue to support him to explain themselves is her damn right as far as I’m concerned. Johansson doesn’t have to comment, but I would remind her that people are asked to comment about things they don’t know intimately all the damn time. Keep reading »

Is Scarlett Johansson’s SodaStream Ad Really Too Hot For The Super Bowl?

Is Scarlett Johansson's SodaStream Ad Really Too Hot For The Super Bowl?
I Don't Get It

No, actually. Well, not in the “sexy” sense of the word hot. But Fox isn’t willing to take any heat for running an ad during the Super Bowl that takes aim at two of their biggest regular advertisers, Coke and Pepsi. This SodaStream ad featuring Scarlett Johansson was rejected by Fox, not because of the way ScarJo sensuously sucks on a straw, but because the brand touts their healthier alternative by specifically calling out their chief competitors. Sure, many of the ads shown during the Super Bowl are sexist or racist or homophobic or just painfully stupid, but brazenly calling out Coke and Pepsi? That’s where Fox draws the line!

“Do I imagine myself having a full-on political career? That seems like a stretch. But who knows? I don’t limit the possibilities. If I have more time, I may be able to lend a bigger voice to politics. I never close the door on those kinds of things.”

– Harper’s Bazaar cover girl Scarlett Johansson opens up about the possibility of a political career in the magazine’s October issue. “I come from a politically active family,” she added. “To be an active member of the community, to be a responsible citizen and to engage politically have always been part of my awareness and part of my life.” Johansson campaigned vocally for Barack Obama last year and is reportedly in the running to play his one-time opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a big-screen biopic. Would you vote for her? [Daily Mail]

Scarlett Johansson & Jessica Chastain Among The Actresses Being Considered To Play Hillary Rodham Clinton

Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain might play Hillary Clinton in "Rodham"

“Rodham” will follow former Secretary of State/Senator/first lady/gift to the world (though that last one isn’t former) Hillary Clinton during her early lawyering days, when she “finds herself forced to choose between a destined path to the White House and her unresolved feelings for Bill Clinton, her former boyfriend who now teaches law in Arkansas.” The movie already has a screenwriter and a director, and now The Independent has named a several actresses who are reportedly being considered for the title role.

In addition to Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried are reportedly being considered. Read more on The Mary Sue…

Scarlett Johansson Is Feeling “Meh” About Marriage

“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me would I get married again. It’s really not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now.”

–Scarlett Johansson gives Elle UK an update on her current feelings about marriage, which, if I may say so, are definitely not weird. In fact, I feel quite similarly and wish more people would focus on building healthy relationships instead of rushing into marriage. Scarlett has been dating French journalist Romain Dauriac for the past couple months, while ex-husband Ryan Reynolds apparently never lost his enthusiasm for holy matrimony, and married Blake Lively a few months back.

8 Celebs & The Tattoos We Expect Them To Get

After Scarlett Johansson debuted her new tattoo, Amelia and I both didn’t get it. We had an in-depth conversation about it, where we came to the realization that the reasons we didn’t like it were: A) it was exactly the kind of tattoo we expected Scarjo to get (the same way we expected her to release a Tom Waits cover album) and B) something about it seemed like she was trying too hard to demonstrate her street cred (the same way her Tom Waits cover album did).

We say this as two tattooed women who both have Chinese character tattoos we’re embarrassed of. I have two other tattoos, which I love because they have deep meaning to me. Maybe “Lucky You” has deep meaning to Scarjo, who knows? That’s not important. What’s important is this: Scarjo and her “Lucky You” tattoo inspired a much longer reverie about other celebrity tattoos we are expecting to see any day now. When they come true, just remember, we called it first.
