What comes next?
Who do you name?
Winslet? Firth? Hanks? Jodie Foster?
Would you ever, EVER!!!!!! suggest Scarlett Johansson to round out that series?
Daniel Day-Lewis, Cate Blanchett…
And SCARLETT JOHANSSON???
Scarjo was interviewed by USA Today for We Bought A Zoo where she expressed her disdain for the term “Scarjo”. She hates it. She doesn’t want it. She never asked for it. She thinks it’s lazy.
And you know what? I agree. If I were her, I wouldn’t be into it either. Can’t argue with her there. But then…she continues:
"People can't actually say the whole name? It's just bizarre. (How come Daniel Day-Lewis isn't subjected to) like, 'DaDay'? So Cate Blanchett is not, like, 'CaBla'? Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck with (Scarjo)?”
Some might say she was just citing examples but I think this is insight. Insight into how Scarlett Johansson sees herself, where she feels fits in...
Alongside DANIEL DAY-LEWIS and CATE BLANCHETT?????????????????
It’s further confirmation for why she was dating Sean Penn. As I posited back then, the attraction was his talent, the craft, his workmanship on a character. Sean Penn is gross but Sean Penn is a great actor. A very good director too. And now that we know Scarlett believes herself to be in the company of the Day-Lewises and Blanchetts of the world, OF COURSE she thought she could be, I dunno, Mary Pickford to his Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Shelley to his Percy Bysshe Shelley, June Carter to his Johnny Cash.
Also, what the hell is she saying about the subway???
She’s too privileged for the subway now? But people shouldn’t be allowed to take her picture everywhere just because she’s famous...? Make up your f-cking mind.
