I don’t really watch Saturday Night Live anymore unless someone I really, really like is hosting, which is rare. The show is just… not really all that funny anymore. It’s extremely hit or miss, and the best sketches end up on the internet by the following morning anyway, so there’s kinda no point in tuning into the broadcast. There’s that, and the fact that I’m an old lady who likes to be in bed by 10pm, even on weekends. My point is, I didn’t see Scarlett Johansson host the show again on Saturday night, but I have seen this sketch, about what Marvel might do with a Black Widow movie.
This is hilarious because it’s so ridiculous, but also because Marvel obviously doesn’t know what to do with female superheroes and probably would think this sounds like a good idea. Sadly.
Did you catch ScarJo on SNL this weekend? Did she do the chandeliers sketch?
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds were only married for a little less than three years (2008 to 2011), and they’ve both since moved on with different partners, had babies, yada yada. But for a while there, they were kind of an “It Couple” in Hollywood, and a lot of people just couldn’t understand why they broke up, for some reason. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck! Scarlett has finally sorta kinda alluded to her relationship with Ryan, though not really directly or in any way that’ll tell you anything important.
“Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in,” the Lucy star told the magazine. “It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them.”
“[Marriage] takes a lot of work. It takes a man who’s not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career. He has to be in a field that’s completely different from yours,” she explained to Parade.
Well, duh. This is why most Hollywood marriages fail. Egos get in the way, jealousy springs up and it’s all a mess. This was never going to work out, but hey, that’s all right. They both seem to be doing just fine without each other.
Scarlett Johansson is, by all accounts, pretty hot, right? She’s just had a baby so she’s probably feeling that Hollywood pressure to get back in shape and yada yada, but baby or no baby, she’s an attractive woman. Not by her own account, of course – she just think she looks “okay”.
Here’s what she had to say about it on Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 (via E! Online):
“It’s an okay body,” said the actress, who welcomed her and Romain Dauriac‘s first child Rose Dorothy just three months ago. “I wouldn’t say it’s particularly remarkable, though. I don’t like my thighs, my midsection.”
And how does the newly married mama feel about being viewed as a sex symbol? “I never put on a sexy face,” she told Barbara, “so I don’t know what it means to act seductively.”
Rose Dorothy! How did I not know that was her daughter’s name? It’s so old school! It’s adorable! And yeah, sorry ScarJo (I know you love that name!), but you are more than “okay”. Not my cup of tea, but from an objective point of view… come on.
I’m not quite sure how you can “secretly” do something that wasn’t anyone else’s business to know about anyway, but whatever. The point is, Scarlett Johansson and fiancé Romain Dauriac got married in Montana recently in an “intimate ceremony” that sounds… nice, I guess? You know, considering we know literally zero details.
While the actress, who was recently seen wearing a gold ring on her wedding finger, has remained tight-lipped about whether they had married, we’re told the ceremony happened shortly after Johansson and Dauriac welcomed their first child in September.
A source tells Page Six, “Scarlett and Romain were married in a very intimate ceremony after the birth of their daughter. They kept the wedding a big secret because they both wanted privacy.”
While it had been speculated the couple would marry in Dauriac’s native Paris, the source said the wedding took place at a secret location in the US, away from the spotlight of Hollywood or Johansson’s home town of New York. The pair wed on Oct. 1 in Philipsburg, Montana, a clerk for Granite County told People.
Apparently this wedding has been confirmed to Gossip Cop. Woo hoo! Exciting! Or something. Two people who were engaged got married and had a baby together – big whoop? If she did it in Montana to be away from the press, there’s probably a reason for that.
Mazel to them, either way. Lucy was one of the best films I saw this year!
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!).
