Scarlett Johansson Does July, 2008 Nylon Magazine

Curse of Scarlett Johansson fervour

IN the profit and loss columns of contemporary celebrity, what goes where is a question we could probably all make a fair stab at answering.

Take the case of Scarlett Johansson.

Profit? Easy. The list would include the following: the $US7 million ($7.3 million) Los Angeles home she purchased last year with her huge film earnings; her status as Hollywood royalty and funky indie-film darling; the fact directors such as Woody Allen and Sofia Coppola beat a path to her agent; and her 2006 coronation by a US magazine as “the sexiest woman alive”.

And loss? Easy again, albeit tainted for many by a get-over-it, call-those-problems sneer. Into that column would go the privacy the 23-year-old has sacrificed and that she guards fiercely. In, too, the poison she is powerless to prevent people spreading about her: that Tom Cruise allegedly tried to recruit her to Scientology in an audition; that she and actor Benicio del Toro had sex in a hotel lift following the 2004 Oscars; that she has slept her way to success.

She should stop embarrassing Benicio by making up bullshit abt 2 of them 'doing it' in the lift. If she doesn't I'm gonna go and punch her baboon face ugly bleached head and knock her lights out. No one talks like that abt my Benicio.

Oh and she's ugly, talentless, liar and has a deep weird voice. I like women with husy voices but hers is just weird.

Such a shitty actress she is pretty but not phenomenal her lack of talent and pretentious attitude are very annoying.

She doesn't deserve all the hype she is getting Kirsten Dunst is a far better actress.

this average looking broad - with admittedly above average tits - expects the public to believe she did not sleep her way to the top? seriously? she's an awful actress, with the range of a potato. there's nothing wrong with sleeping your way to the top... just admit it.

She's one of the hottest. Her voice gets drowned out by all the instruments and production on the CD, she might have a good voice, but it's hard to tell. Still love her even if she can't sing.

Looks a lot like Cate Blanchett in the first picture. Unfortunately curiosity seems to have got the better of me so i think may have to buy her album, or at least illegally download that mess. I bet it fucking sucks!
