Scarlett Johansson is the latest celeb to hop on the designs-for-Haiti bandwagon. ScarJo was able to quickly contribute to the cause thanks to her position as a Mango campaign girl and Oxfam ambassador. The result of her efforts: a tote bag design (available Mar. 1) that features an old-fashioned map of Haiti. No need to worry if your purchase profits are being diluted by the fashion corporation: 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Oxfam’s relief fund. [LA Times] Keep reading »

“…women have power in numbers. We draw strength from the support of other women. In some cultures, girls can be seen as a burden to a family because of the need to pay out a dowry when they marry … they are vulnerable to all kinds of abuse. When I visited shelters for female victims of violence in India, I found that a lot of the women had been raped, even at home. That’s still very taboo. Even in the United States, it’s hard to talk about being sexually abused by your husband or your boyfriend … being able to find solace in support groups makes a huge difference.”
It’s new release Tuesday, so it’s time to take the latest tunes for a spin! And honey, there are some pretty sweet releases this week. ScarJo and Pete Yorn make up a breakup, Muse finds resistance is futile, Megadeth unleashes the beast, Drake shows us “Degrassi” is greener on the other side, Mason Jennings raises his family record, and we’re over the moon about Kid Cudi. So, let’s get into the groove, after the jump! Keep reading »
“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 »
