It Will be a Shotgun Wedding for Scarlett Johansson

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Paris Premiere

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.

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.

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 defends Woody Allen, thinks sex abuse allegations are “irresponsible”

Scarlett Johansson has never struck me as much of an activist, but she’s a pretty decent actress, and what more can we really ask for? Well, I certainly hoped for a little more when it came to her response to Dylan Farrow‘s sex abuse allegations against Woody Allen. I’m sure you remember that Scarlett has worked with Woody on several films, and therefore it stands to reason that she’s a fan of his work. However, for some reason, the fact that he’s an accused pedophile and sex abuser seems to have passed her by, and in fact she thinks it’s “irresponsible” that her name has even been brought into this whole thing.

When Dylan wrote her open letter to The New York Times earlier this year, shaming both Woody and the Hollywood community who so vehemently supports him, Scarlett’s was one of the names mentioned. According to her, though, she has no idea what any of this is about and doesn’t think there’s a backlash against Woody at all.

“I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me.”

“I’m unaware that there’s been a backlash. I think he’ll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I’m sure the other people involved have their own experience with it. It’s not like this is somebody that’s been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, ‘I don’t support this lifestyle or whatever.’ I mean, it’s all guesswork.”

“I don’t know anything about it. It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other.”

Well, there’s that, I suppose. It’s one thing to have an unpopular opinion, and entirely another to feign ignorance, as if you live in a bubble where popular world news doesn’t hit you at all. Sure, she might not agree with the backlash, but she’s “unaware” of it? That seems a bit strange…  It would almost be more respectable if she just came out and said that she thinks Dylan is lying, since that seems to be the implication here.
