Scarlett Johansson really hates being called ‘ScarJo’

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.

TRAILER TIME: Scarlett Johansson kicks ass in ‘Lucy’

scarlett-johansson-lucy

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 Wall Street Journal Magazine, talks about motherhood and acting.

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!

Scarlett Johansson is Radiant at London Premiere

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" - UK Film Premiere

So clearly, Scarlett Johansson is going to be one of those insanely hot pregnant women.  Why didn’t I get this gene?  She looked positively radiant at the London premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, earlier today.  No hint of a bump- or at least in the abdominal region – but she is certainly glowing.

Scarlett Johansson doesn’t “see why anyone wouldn’t” work with Woody Allen again.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Paris Premiere

The beautiful and pregnant Scarlett Johansson attended the Paris premiere of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ last night.

Scarlett wore this red Michael Kors suit, which looks amazing on her. She’s still hiding that baby bump, I can’t wait to see her show it off a bit more!

In an interview with The New Yorker, Scarlett came out in defense of Woody Allen and SodaStream, AGAIN:

On Woody Allen: “Shooting that movie [Vicky Christina Barcelona] was such a huge event in Barcelona at that time that you would get to the set, and there would be literally two thousand people standing behind the camera,” Johansson recalls. “So it was mostly just a mental exercise in finding peace of mind, and the stillness.” And how was the filmmaker, when all this was going on? “Woody was ‘They love you! Turn and wave!,’ and I was, like, I hate you so much right now.” She is a loyal fan; they also made “Match Point” and “Scoop” together. Would she work with him again, in the wake of recent events? “I don’t see why anyone wouldn’t,” she replies.

On SodaStream: Step back a little, and the whole [SodaStream] farrago acquires a comic flavor, and Johansson sounds plausibly dumbfounded by her time at the heart of the storm: “I think I was put into a position that was way larger than anything I could possibly—I mean, this is an issue that is much bigger than something I could just be dropped into the middle of.” The only folk who relished the affair, I guess, were the board of Moët & Chandon, who could have told her, holding their noses, to stay away from inferior fizz.

I find it very interesting when celebrities come out in such strong support of Woody Allen. Even if Dylan Farrow was lying – or making up her sexual abuse allegations, he STILL married his adopted daughter. That in and of itself is very, very creepy.
