Scarlett Johansson has got that effortless coolness that I suppose is inherent to being engaged to a French dude now. She’s been spending her first pregnancy in France, cutting her hair and growing her baby in peace.
She looks fantastic! I wasn’t really sure about the haircut at first, but seeing it from this angle, it’s pretty okay. I mean, the look as a whole is very “cool soccer mom”, but I still dig it. France suits her, even if they’re all rude to her there.
In other news, I’m going to see Lucy on Friday and I can’t wait!

Scarlett Johansson is very pregnant and living her glamourous French life, so she’s been opting for a more natural beauty look lately. Her most recent move is an interesting one: a very short, very strange haircut that looks like she did herself in a Britney-esque breakdown. It actually kind of suits her, I just wonder if it’s for a role or to escape the bullshit summer weather (IT IS HOT!).
What do you think? Does she pull it off?

Scarlett Johansson needs to sit down and shut the hell up, because she’s really working on my damn nerves lately. Between her Woody Allen lovefest commentary and this new bullshit, it’s clear that she takes herself WAY too seriously.
In the new issue of Glamour, ScarJo (went there and always will now) revealed how much she HATES the nickname of ScarJo because it is – among other things – “violent” and “insulting”. Methinks someone needs a dictionary.
“I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant.”
“And there’s something kind of violent about it. There’s something insulting about it.”
Uhhhh… it’s so funny how much of a disconnect ScarJo seems to have in terms of words and what they actually mean. I mean, are celeb nicknames like RPattz, KStew and Brangelina annoying? I suppose, if you have nothing better to worry about. They’re also totally innocuous and not even a thing in the grand scheme of things. I think a little perspective would help our good friend here.

Scarlett Johansson takes on the lead role in the upcoming action/sci-fi movie Lucy, which deals with a girl who’s kidnapped and has drugs put INSIDE her body via surgery and somehow they start to leak and give her superpowers and she basically takes over the world.
I’m by no means a ScarJo fan, but oh man, I’m SO in for this.
What do you think? Will you see it?

Scarlett Johansson hasn’t really talked publicly about her pregnancy yet – in fact, she hasn’t even confirmed that she IS pregnant! However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have thoughts on career and motherhood and how to balance it all.
“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,” Johansson says. She continues: “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.” She laughs. “Selfishly.”
“I know that with that there will be some sacrifices. I know that’s the struggle with working mothers and successful careers. It happens.” But the scent of double standard is obvious, and Johansson doesn’t shy from it. “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.”
True, true – there are lots of Hollywood men that have tons of kids and it doesn’t affect the world’s view of them. However, does it really affect women’s? I’m not sure. It “feels irresponsible” to speculate on such a topic. Maybe that’s it.

Scarlett Johansson announced her engagement to her Frenchie boyfriend, Romain Dauriac, in September. They haven’t planned on the whole wedding bit just yet, but you know what they say: first comes love, then comes baby, then comes marriage. Or something, right? What I’m trying to say is this: Scarlett is apparently pregnant with her first child!
People apparently confirmed the news with Scarlett’s reps, so this seems to be a sure thing. I guess congrats are in order?
