Much like Lady Gaga, I often feel like Scarlett Johansson over-saturates the market whenever she has a new project. Scar is appearing (in a supporting role) in the new Cameron Crowe film, We Bought a Zoo. It doesn’t look like any kind of ground-breaking, award-potential film, and Scarlett’s performance looks pretty basic-to-horrible, judging solely from the trailer. So how is a supporting role in a non-blockbuster, not-acclaimed film somehow allowing Scarlett to take the covers of Vanity Fair, Interview and now Cosmopolitan, all within a few months? I don’t know. I don’t think Scarlett is that important, honestly. I don’t hate the girl, I just don’t think she’s all that talented or worth all of this fuss.
Anyway, Cosmo just released their cover of Scarlett, although this is a really weird image that I would not have selected for a cover. That’s not her body, correct? They, like, stuck Scarlett’s head on Minka Kelly’s body, I think. The dress is bad, the hair isn’t great, and the whole endeavor looks like a successful Photoshop project. Cosmo also released a quote from their cover interview:
“I’m attracted to the quality of being adventurous and perhaps a bit mischievous and also questioning authority and being proactive. If that makes up a quintessential bad boy, then whatever. I’m not at all attracted to meanness or bullying, but I do think conviction is attractive. I mean, really, who doesn’t?” – Scarlett Johansson in the January issue of Cosmo
Scarlett is just describing Sean Penn, correct? Do you think she’s still hung up on Penn’s jock? I think she might be. One of the blind items that I’ve always believed was Scarlett was that one about a young actress who thought boning Oscar winners would make her more talented and award-worthy. Allegedly, Scarlett is currently boning Joseph Gordon Levitt, but I don’t know if it’s serious or anything. If she’s serious about boning Oscar winners, I’d like to see her with Adrien Brody next. They would make an interesting pair.
