Scarlett Johansson does Strawberry Shortcake for V Magazine


Here are some of the photos from Scarlett Johansson’s cover appearance on the new issue of V Magazine. You know, one thing I like about this job is that I get to see photos from and read interviews in magazines that I would never buy. Who buys V Magazine? Who subscribes to it? I have no idea. But I do enjoy it, mainly because somebody at V Magazine got ScarJo away from the stylists and photographers who seem to have a vested interest in making her look corpsey. These V photos are lovely. Except for one thing, on the cover: Strawberry Shortcake, right?


Oh well. It’s better than corpsey. Anyway, there are some slightly interesting interview excerpts. Here’s People’s take:

Never mind her enviable bone structure, pouty lips and voluminous hair–or the weeks of hardcore training she endured to get in shape for her role as a catsuit-clad spy in Iron Man 2–Scarlett Johansson chalks up her famous good looks to her glam squad.

“Working with these incredible hair and makeup teams, you go in looking like a schmoe, and you come out like a movie star,” V magazine‘s June cover star says.

The 25-year-old actress, who despite a busy schedule lighting up the Broadway stage and the big screen has found time to appear in campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana Beauty, Louis Vuitton, L’Oreal and Mango, says, ”You go through the works, and then you’re like this perfectly prepared sausage…no one ever sees what goes in.”

Sorry, Scarlett, while we don’t doubt the talent of your stylists and makeup artists, we’d hardly compare you to a link of kielbasa! For the full interview, pick up the June issue of V magazine, on newsstands May 11.

Just Jared also has some excerpts where Scarlett is talking about playing Black Widow in Iron Man 2. She tells the magazine: “This is a no-bulls–t character. It’s not that she’s non-feeling, she just gets the job done. She’s part of something bigger, and she knows it. She’s this crazy badass, and she has no time for f–king around.” ScarJo also talks about the parts she’s taking now, in general: “I’m 25, and for some time I’ve played these characters who are kind of figuring it out, transforming from young girls to young women… I don’t feel like a girl anymore And I feel like my life and career are on a different path than they had been. There’s a lot of road behind me. I feel at this point I really want to do work that is challenging to me. Not to say that I don’t look at my job and realize that I’m ridiculously fortunate, and purely an actor for hire. You never forget that it’s all so vulnerable.” Well, at least she’s not talking about how she’s a “sensual vision” again. Thank God.

    i think these photos are gorgeous, and i like the quote. it’s not look at me look at me. it’s i want to grow as an actress but i know that people will hire for what they want and i’m lucky in that.

  2. texasmom says:

    If she doesn’t close her mouth soon she might turn into Jessica Simpson!

  3. Pooky says:

    Sorry Scarlett, but your character is 100% window dressing. She does nothing for the first 1½ hours of the film, then dons a catsuit and turns into that gymnast who does all the mo-cap for Lara Croft. I’m guessing they hired her purely to look good on the posters. Which she does!

  4. Kaiser says:

    texasmom – Yes! The open-mouth thing bothers me too. Her mouth is open in every photo.

  5. malachais says:

    I really like this look on her – she looks so natural and the hair looks awesome. This is one of her most natural looking photo shoots.

  6. Miss says:

    Not to drag out this Lindsay Lohan thing but it struck me as I was reading…She’s only a couple years older than LL? WHAT a difference and I’m not even a SJ fan.

  7. freckles says:

    I’m sorry… I can’t get past the shirt and hair combo. That shirt (with the big hoop earring) makes her look like a strawberry pirate. And the hair is borderline 80′s to me… she looks good but I hate the styling of this shoot.

  8. danielle says:

    It’s different – I like it.

  9. Shannon says:

    Where did they FIND that shirt? She does look really stunning though.

  10. Raven says:

    The difference, texasmom, is that ScarJo probably brushes her teeth a lot more often.

  11. LindyLou says:

    OMG I’d give my left arm for that hair!

  12. Cam says:

    I love this sort of Spanish Gypsy look on Scarlet. She should do it more often. That old Hollywood thing will always works for her but she should try something different like this on her own.

  13. gg says:

    Gf has got a lot of hair! She looks good here.

  14. prissa says:

    For some reason, Scarlett’s face always reminds me of play doh, but I must give it to her. She looks very beautiful here!

    Luv the pics and the Strbrry Shortcake comparison. I wish they would’ve dyed her hair red to make it more so!

  15. Kaye says:

    She is very pretty, but the way that she holds her mouth open, I expect drool to start leaking out of it any second. She looks more dumb than sensuous.

  16. imalawyer says:

    OMG LOVE the big hair!

  17. Eileen Yover says:

    I’m loving that bracelet! She’s alright too…minus the catching flies mouth.

  18. Lala11_7 says:


    Remi Euro Silk…about $99.00 a pack…you need about 2 1/2 packs to get that look…TA DA!!!

  19. Mistral says:

    Love it!

  20. Chico says:

    Kaiser, I think she was talking about her character as the “sensual vision”? This catsuit role was all about looking good? That’s my take on it anyways.

    I really like her and think she’s a good actor in the right role. She was just nominated for a Tony, too. Plus, she’s not a total fameho like the rest of Hollywood. She keeps her private life to herself, which makes me respect her all the more.

  21. Solveig says:

    Those are lips I’d like to have: naturally puffy and beautifully shaped. Mine are just puffy.
    She looks like a hyena when she smiles, though.

  22. ViktoryGin says:

    I used to love Strawberry Shortcake when I was a kid! She looks good here, but more natural…and living.

    I actually agree with her physical assessmnent of herself. While she’s naturally attractive, she can look very mundane. Lost in Translation? Ghostworld, anyone? She was younger, however.

  23. raspberry says:

    2 other actresses who cannot close their mouth – Naomi Watts and Sienna Miller.

  24. Maritza says:

    She looks so much better with her dirty blonde hair than that awful red color she had on Ironman 2. That bracelet and ring are very nice. She is so gorgeous!

  25. ford says:

    she looks like my king-charles dog in these photos.

  26. jess says:

    wow…creative. same EXACT face in all the pictures. vapid, my iq is 5 and my mouth is always open look. there is nothing behind her eyes in any of these shots.

  27. Dawn says:

    @Lala11_7: So very true!

  28. kim says:

    she looks cute, but is still a really over-rated actress.
