While the due date of her beautiful baby unknown, people are settling for the arrival of another important date in Scarlett Johansson’s life… that of her wedding. And it would appear that the wedding date is just around the corner! At a dinner at Martha Stewart’s East Hampton estate over the weekend, someone overheard Johansson mention that she would be getting married in the next four weeks to her fiancé, French journalist Romain Dauriac.
The August wedding venue is being kept a secret, but the speculation is that Johansson will opt for a very private ceremony in Dauriac’s native Paris, or perhaps in the Hamptons, where the couple has been spending much of the summer. Johansson’s much-anticipated Luc Besson sci-fi movie “Lucy” opens on Friday, so the 29-year-old actress will be busy promoting the flick before the wedding and the imminent birth of their first child.
The happy couple slipped into Stewart’s party, and sat across from the domestic doyenne for the seated dinner on her porch, whipped up by her private chef.
Apparently this was the first party that Stewart had thrown at the house in 20 years. Which begs the question… why didn’t I get invited?
This will be Johansson’s first child, and second marriage, as she was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds - whom she divorced in 2011.
Disney is re-doing ‘The Jungle Book,’ AGAIN, but this time it’s going to star two of Hollywood’s hottest ladies! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o will star in the Jon Favreau-directed remake!
Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o are in the middle of negotiations to join the already cast Idris Elba in what is being envisioned as a live-action/CG hybrid movie.
Nyong’o is in final negotiations to play Rakcha, a mother wolf who adopts Mowgli.
Johansson is in earlier stages of talks to voice the character of Kaa, the python who eats other animals by hypnotizing them. Kaa is the movie’s second villain after Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger being voiced by Idris Elba.
Sometimes it seems like Scarlett Johansson takes herself a bit too seriously, and her interview in the new issue of Glamour is a perfect example of just that.
You know how everyone calls her ScarJo, just like they call Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Branglina and Robert Pattinson gets called RPattz? It’s something that happens and it’s kinda corny but completely innocuous. However, ScarJo (yep, I went there!) doesn’t like it at all, and in fact she thinks it’s “violent” and “insulting”. Oookay.
“I associate that name with, like, pop stars,” she tells Glamour. “It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant.”
“And there’s something kind of violent about it,” she adds. “There’s something insulting about it.”
If we can get real with each other for a minute, Scarlett kinda needs to bring herself back down to earth, right? I can think of a lot of things that are way more flippant and insulting, like maybe her thoughts on Woody Allen being a molester? Just a thought. A little perspective goes a long way.
Scarlett Johansson has found her niche in action movies! Following her super-hero role as the Black Widow in ‘The Avengers,’ Scarlett will next star in Luc Besson’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, ‘Lucy.’
The first trailer for the film features Johansson playing a woman who lives in a futuristic Taipei, Taiwan, and is working as a mule for the mob. She inadvertently ingests a drug that she was carrying in her stomach — and it gives her special abilities. Some of these special side-effects include: eyes that change color, the ability to write Chinese, superhuman strength and unlimited intelligence. Basically, it looks like the drug is allowing her to use more of her brain power than any other human.
Also starring Morgan Freeman, Lucy looks like a tension-filled, wild ride with Johansson running the show.
Universal will release the film on Aug. 8.
I love Luc Besson…. I’m guessing this will be great!
Scarlett Johansson covers the latest issue of Wall Street Journal, and inside the interview she opens up about becoming a mother for the first time.
“It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success,” she said. “There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all. [Laughs] Selfishly.”
The 29 year old is expecting her first child, with fiance Romain Dauriac. “I know that with that there will be some sacrifices,” she said. “I know that’s the struggle with working mothers and successful careers. It happens. With [male actors] it just doesn’t happen that way. You can be every woman’s fantasy, and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever.”
There were already rumors Johansson’s pregnancy may affect her role as the Black Widow in the upcoming “Avengers” sequel. But she assured The Huffington Post there will be no delays in the filming of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (without specifically commenting on the pregnancy).
The supposed mom-to-be certainly has her plate full, as she is also a bride-to-be. But don’t expect her to spend much time worrying about the nuptials.
“Oh, I don’t plan anything. I’m terrible at planning,” she told “Access Hollywood” earlier this month. “Yeah, I’m not gonna plan anything — I like to wing it!”
She looks beautiful! Pregnancy agrees with her!
