Scarlett Johansson in Rodarte at the TIFF ‘Jojo Rabbit’ premiere: cute or blah?

Scarlett Johansson at arrivals for JOJO...

Here are some photos of Scarlett Johansson at Sunday night’s TIFF premiere of Jojo Rabbit, the Taika Waititi film which is supposed to be an absurdist/parody of Adolf Hitler (Taika plays a child’s imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler). ScarJo wore this silver Rodarte dress to the premiere. I have to say… the fashion, in general, coming out of TIFF has been underwhelming. Maybe celebrities are saving “the good stuff” for New York and London premieres, or maybe the designers are just in a rut. I generally find Rodarte stuff to be too overworked, and this is no different – this material would have been lovely as a simple slipdress. But no.

Anyway, ScarJo is obviously in TIFF to promote more than Jojo Rabbit. Jojo Rabbit won’t get her an Oscar nomination. She’ll also premiere Marriage Story, which is already being screened by critics and they friggin’ love it. We could truly see a 2020 Oscars where Scarlett Johansson is nominated for Best Actress and Jennifer Lopez is nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

It’s also worth noting that ScarJo will probably get nominated across the board even though she’s an a–hole who says terrible things constantly, especially when she’s promoting a film. She’s literally going to get an Oscar nomination when, in two big interviews this summer, she claimed she should be “allowed to play any person or any tree or any animal.” And then she followed that up by once again giving a full-throated defense of Woody Allen. Speaking of, Dylan Farrow chimed in on ScarJo’s THR interview:

If we learned anything from previous awards season, Dylan is going to keep talking and tweeting and giving interviews during Scar’s Oscar campaign. Something to keep in mind.

    This continuing Woody Allen defender is SO cancelled. I really wish this site wouldn’t cover her (and yes, I know I’m here posting this, but only to voice this).

  2. Margareth says:

    I don’t care, she’s cancelled.

  3. Eliza says:

    Rodarte’s 80s prom dress collection strikes again. I can’t tell if Hollywood stylists really think these ugly styles work, or if Rodarte pays a lot for celebs to be seen in their clothes.

    I also hope Dylan keeps tweeting about her all award season.

  4. DS9 says:

    Her face looks odd here or it’s reflecting my face since I read about her Woody Allen asskissing.

    “Believe all women, except when their attacker denies it and can give me work”

    • Kebbie says:

      He can’t even give her work because nobody will fund his movies anymore. Amazon completely scrapped his last one and he had to sue to get the rights back. I don’t think he has an American distributor for it.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “Believe all women, except when their attacker denies it and can give me work”

      I hope this follows her all through awards season.

      Feckless you-know-what.

    • Aoife says:

      The fact that she is still defending him is so gross, but the idea of believing all women is ridiculous. And it is a really bad dress.

  5. Kebbie says:

    Bad dress.

    Can’t wait to see Jojo Rabbit though. Taika is the best. I hope her BS doesn’t ruin the press for his movie.

    Also, I think most people would rather see pictures of him on here than her.

    • SM says:

      This is my concern too. Taika chose a very heavy subject in a very risky environment. However if anyone could succeed in fulfilling the promise the Jojo Rabbit is set to fulfill, it must be Taika. So I want her bullshit be as far from it as possible. Frankly, I wish he cast someone else. In addition, I watched the cast interview from Toronto, and whenever the kid who has the lead in the movie is asked a question, Taika makes a point of commenting on “being careful” and “giving the right answer”. Taika’s joking aside, I wonder if those comments may be directed as Scarlett.

    • Jellybean says:

      it is nice that Taika seems to have become a good friend of Jeremy Renner and his close circle of friends. There was a nice video showing a surprise birthday for Taika with Renner as the one who got him there and one of his oldest friends supplying the cake. It is so nice how close the Marvel people are.

    • Maria says:

      She is disgusting and the sole reason I refuse to see Jojo Rabbit.

  6. tw says:

    Pretty dressed wasted on a self absorbed, overpaid, one note a-hole.
    I have no interest in seeing Scarlett Johansson in any film.

  7. J ferber says:

    Doesn’t she realize she’s too old to be a Woody darling anymore? Just yuck.

  8. Leriel says:

    “I have to say… the fashion, in general, coming out of TIFF has been underwhelming” – TIFF isn’t Cannes with long red carpets and tons of models, promoting another Loreal 10 buck box dye. It’s just movies and movies stars and creators talking straight to press. And that’s why I really like to follow TIFF, like, it’s about movies, not merching.

  9. Aimee says:

    She has terrible style (stylist)!

  10. Lilah casting says:

    There were other women at Tiff why are you mostly covering the same people

  11. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I have never liked Johansson, so I’m constantly surprised she is still around & so popular. I also freaking LOATHE Woody Allen, so her interview literally made me nauseous. I was REALLY looking forward to JoJo Rabbit until I saw she was in it. The ONLY reason I’m trying to be okay with her being in this movie (I am admittedly unsuccessful in this attempt so far) is because Johansson is Jewish, and in the film she plays a German woman hiding a Jewish girl in her home.

    • Valerie says:

      same, there were a lot of Scarlett fans at Marriage Story, and I was just like, okay, count me out of the adoring party. I mean, if they enjoyed it, fine. Seeing their fave in person is a big deal. I saw Ray Liotta, that was all I cared about!

  12. Lilah casting says:

    Brie Larson Dakota Johnson Bryce Dallas and Sarah Paulson were there too why don’t they get cover as much by this site.

  13. Valerie says:

    I ended up loving Marriage Story too – not because of her, but the rest of the cast. Alan, Adam, Ray, Laura, JULIE HAGERTY. ScarJo’s performance was good and she played well off of Adam, but I could never ‘get’ her as an actor. Her defence of Allen sealed it for me. Not a fan.

  14. intheknow says:

    She’s a swine.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for the dress. Or her.

  16. MC2 says:

    Since she publicly came out to defend a monster & say that he is telling the truth, I hope she gives Dylan Farrow the exact same opportunity to be direct with the story. If you’re going to have the guts to call someone’s molestation story a lie, you should have the guts to sit down with them & THEN decide who is telling the truth. She is a disgusting apologist & opportunist. This “cool girl” needs a wake up call.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      excellent point.

      I wonder, if Dylan requested a sit down to be as “direct” with her as WA was, if ScarbageJo would take her up on it.

      Considering that Dylan can’t cast her in anything, Imma say no.

  17. Maria says:

    Who cares, she’s gross and worthless. I’d be happy to never read about her again honestly. Stop giving this terrible person attention.

  18. Shannon says:

    Eh. Look, I’m torn here. I’m on the fence. I would go to jail if I came across Woody Allen and I would sock him in the face. But I get where Scarlett’s coming from. She’s showing loyalty to a man I assume never showed her a wrong side of him. Predators do that and people fall for it, and I’m SO. OVER. Women taking the blame for something a man did. I’m not canceling her, sorry/not sorry. He’s cancelled. She said what she said and it was wrong, but I do believe in her mind that’s loyalty and it’s very clear he knows how to prey on younger women. But don’t worry, I rarely watch movies anyway to when I say a movie star is canceled, it means next to nothing. I’m just here to say if he didn’t prey on her physically, he probably preyed on her mentally and it makes so mad when we, as women, get mad at other women for not saying exactly what we want them to say. Woody is the asshole here. Don’t lose focus.

    • Valerie says:

      This is a fair point and I agree with women not taking the blame for a man’s actions. But I think that by not only working with him but praising his work, she puts herself on the wrong side of the story. I’ve often thought this about Diane Keaton, who defends him as well, how difficult it must be to learn this about someone you thought you know. I don’t know if we would withdraw our loyalty so easily if we were in their positions.

      At the same time, though, these public declarations of support are disrespectful to abuse victims. I imagine the sting is worse coming from another woman.

  19. EveV says:

    That LA Times tweet made me literally LOL.
    ScarJo gets on my last nerve and then some. So tired of seeing her get rewarded again and again after she shows the world what a self absorbed idiot she is again and again.
