Scarlett Johansson, alien, in Venice
Scarlett Johansson was in Venice today to promote Under The Skin. She arrived at the festival with her boyfriend, Romain Dauriac. They’ve been together now for almost a year. Look at her, wearing the f-cking sh-t out of those pants.
In Under The Skin, Scarlett is an alien who comes to Earth to check things out. The Hollywood Reporter was not impressed after its screening in Telluride. That had less to do with her performance – which is praised – than with the filmmaker who has apparently delivered a “plotless and pretentious” feature. Since Scarjo goes nude several times, Scott Feinberg, THR’s critic, posits that in the absence of any substance, that’ll be the only reason people care about the movie, if it even manages to get a distribution deal. Perhaps European audiences will feel differently, although the naked intrigue might be a disserve to an actor who’s been working diligently to NOT be known as a bombshell.
The teaser for Under The Skin is below. I am not James Franco enough to understand this.
