I’ve added over 350 photos of Scarlett attending last night’s 87th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood. She looked absolutely stunning in a teal green Atelier Versace gown paired with a Swarovski collar and accessorized with a Piaget ear cuff. I also want to thank my lovely friend Ann for her donations. Enjoy the photos!
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Scarlett Johansson has signed on to star in Universal and Imagine Entertainment’s upcoming project The Psychopath Test, which Jay Roach will direct.
Kristin Gore will write the adaptation of Jon Ronson’s book, which centers on the idea that one out of every hundred people is a psychopath. Ronson explores how psychopaths are diagnosed and treated, including unorthodox treatments from the past. The book hit shelves in 2011.
Brian Grazer is producing along with Roach, Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey. Erica Huggins and Jennifer Perini are executive producing.
Johansson was the lead in Universal’s big 2014 hit Lucy, and next will be seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron and the Coen brothers’ Hail, Caesar! She’s repped by LBI Entertainment and Morris Yorn.
Roach most recently directed The Campaign and the pilot episode of HBO’s The Brink. His upcoming film Trumbo starring Bryan Cranston is in postproduction. He’s repped by WME, Mosaic and Behr Abramson.
Gore, the daughter of Al Gore, was an associate producer on Foxcatcher and is working on Sony’s untitled undercover-crime thriller, which will star Channing Tatum. She’s repped by CAA.
Remember a few years ago when Scarlett announced she had formed an all-girl band? Well, now the group, named The Singles, have dropped their first single, Candy. You can take a listen to the song below.
ROLLING STONE – Scarlett Johansson’s past musical projects have included an album of Tom Waits covers, a Serge Gainsbourg-inspired collaboration with Pete Yorn and a role in Bob Dylan’s vintage When the Deal Goes Down music video. Now, she’s not just going pop, she’s going – as she puts it – “super-pop,” fronting a band featuring Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris and Julia Haltigan. Este Haim, the oldest of the Haim sisters, plays drums.
“The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls,” says Johansson, citing the influence of Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go’s. “I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.”
Below, hear their first single, the cheeky Candy, a three-minute electro jam that brings to mind a lost Robyn song inspired by Aaron Carter’s take on Bow Wow Wow’s own junk-food-as-metaphor hit, I Want Candy. The track was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, who previously worked with Johansson on the Waits LP. At the time, he compared her voice to that of Debbie Harry.

With much thanks to my lovely friend Lora, I have added scans of Scarlett’s full editorial titled Nobody’s Baby from the March issue of W Magazine to the gallery.

The full photoshoot for Scarlett’s cover for W Magazine has just been released–and what a striking editorial it is. The story below was also published earlier today, I’m uncertain whether or not it’s the complete version we’ll see in the magazine, though.

“When she came out of me, I was so surprised,” Scarlett Johansson told me on a cold day in December. We were at the photo shoot for this story, and Johansson, who had given birth to her daughter, Rose, just three months earlier, was wearing tight jeans and an equally snug white sweater. Her short, almost platinum hair, which would soon be covered by a Debbie Harry circa-Blondie shag wig, was slicked back. “I had a very strong picture in my mind of what my baby would look like,” Johansson continued. “And, of course, she is completely different. Perfect, but not what I’d imagined. Now, of course, I can’t picture her any other way.” Johansson smiled. As always—and I have been interviewing her regularly since her breakthrough role in 2003’s Lost in Translation—she was at once forthcoming and guarded. Johansson, who just turned 30, has been acting professionally since she was 7 and is entirely comfortable in the spotlight. (“Everyone has seen my breasts!” she said when an assistant offered her a private changing room. “I can change my top right here.”) And then, when it truly matters, she can be remarkably discreet. It was months before the public caught wind of her marriage to the French journalist Romain Dauriac.Continue Reading
