“Both of us were in a transient place. I’ve been working since I was 8 years old, and whenever I have periods of time when I don’t have to be doing anything, where I don’t have any responsibility, it’s in those moments that I live my life. I felt, as the word transient would suggest, in between two places. In between a beginning and an end. And I think Pete also had that feeling of being in between, of being everywhere and nowhere at once.”
— Scarlett Johansson on how she and Pete Yorn came to collaborate on the album “Break Up.” With all this talk about living life most fully when she’s feeling transient, Scarlett sounds a lot like her character, Charlotte, in the 2003 movie, “Lost in Translation.” [via NY Mag] Keep reading »
For the ceremony announcing her as the new face of Mango, Scarlett Johansson rocked a super sleek style that had a bit of a sexy edge. Scarlett paired a flutter sleeve satin top with a waist cinching black skirt- both from Mango. She completed the look with a funky pair of snakeskin shoes, gold bangles, and a large ring on her index finger. This ensemble perfectly complemented Scarlett’s incredible figure so keeping the accessories to a minimum was definitely a wise move- it would have just been overkill otherwise. This outfit is the perfect day-to-night look and is classy, chic, and subtly sexy. Check out my SLIDESHOW to get the look! Keep reading »
Rydonna? Ryarlett? I don’t know what we’ll call them, but Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson may be the newest celebs to start adopting a small tribe. The hunky “Proposal” star recently blabbed to Britain’s Glamour magazine that he “couldn’t be more pro-adoption” and “has every intention of adopting at some time.” Why? Because his older brother was adopted. Well, Ryan is 32, so it’s time to get cracking! Not sure yet where he is thinking of eventually picking up his little one, but I know one girl in Manhattan who would love the gig. [I'm Not Obsessed] Keep reading »
In the July issue of InStyle, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were interviewed for two separate stories — him for the “Man of Style” and her for “Beauty Talk” — but the recently married couple are either totally on the same page or did their interviews with the other in the room, because they have similar wishes.
InStyle: Do you ever wish you could change a characteristic about yourself?
Ryan Reynolds: I know this sounds weird, but I wish I were an inch shorter. [He's 6-foot-2.]
InStyle: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Scarlett Johansson: I’d like to be taller. I’m 5-foot-4 on a good day, and a couple extra inches would be nice.
They totally want to be able to kiss each other more easily! Keep reading »
French Elle has bitch slapped the fashion and beauty industries with their most recent cover. Again. For the second time this year, their cover shoot was minimally made up and, dare I say it, almost natural looking. We loved when they shot hottie model Eva Herzigova sans makeup a couple months again, putting her in a pared down white blouse and similarly laid back hair.
This time though, we weren’t so thrilled. Yes, we applaud the move away from airbrushed impossibility in the general sense, but Scarlett Johansson’s cover is a tad confusing. She’s minimally made up and there doesn’t seem to be blatant airbrushing, but the clothing is a bit trampy, the hair super boring and the expression utterly vacant. This one’s just not doing it for us. Keep reading »
Scarlett Johannson must have read about this study that says women feel their sexiest at 32, because the 24-year-old actor wishes she was 10 years older. “I don’t feel sexy, not right now. I think there is kind of an ingenue thing that women play when they are in their 20s. They are sort of these whimsical, sort of transient characters, and it’s like that in life,” she said. Although we can’t comprehend how Johansson doesn’t feel sexy with that body and intelligence, we totally buy her reason for wanting to be older in Hollywood: “Women in their 30s, and actors in their 30s, suddenly take on far meatier roles. They are playing mothers and wives and women who have been through a life – before the place that they are at that moment. And I look forward to that time when I’ll be able to have more of a life that I have experienced to put into the roles,” she said. For someone who wants more life experiences, Johansson sure has good advise on relationships… Keep reading »
