“Manny And Lo”
Scarlett Johansson is entrancing, smart and cool. Here are 15 facts that are going to take that love for the ScarJo and kick it up a notch.
She’s released two albums, “Anywhere I Lay My Head” and “Break Up.” “Break Up” is a collab with Pete Yorn, which makes sense since that’s her music manager’s brother.
Growing Up Artistic
Her family is artistic in nature; father Karsten Johansson, is an architect and her mother, Melanie Sloan, is a producer and self-titled “film buff.” Mom Melanie took her to all her auditions when she was first starting out.
People petitioned to get her removed from the project “Ghost In The Shell,” claiming it whitewashed the source material.
8 Was Great
She made her off-Broadway debut opposite Ethan Hawke in “Sophistry.” By 2010, she had won a Tony for Best Performance of a Featured Actress In A Play.
Don’t Call Her ScarJo
She hates the nickname, and calls it “flippant.”
In 2005, she helped raise money for charity Oxfam, with a bidder coughing up 20,000 pounds on an eBay auction to get a hair and makeup treatment, tickets, and a 20 minute “date” with Scarlett on the way to the “He’s Just Not That Into You” premiere.
A Little Of Both
What does she celebrate on the holidays? Well, while she identifies as Jewish, she says that she actually celebrates a little of both Christmas and Hanukkah.
10 Years In Jail
Hacking and publishing nude phone pics of Scarlett got Christopher Chaney 10 years in jail in 2011. The FBI helped catch the criminal.
A View From The Bridge
While this is a screen capture from film “An American Rhapsody” by Eva Gardos, the phrase “A View From The Bridge” means a lot to Scarlett. It’s how she won her Tony award in 2010.
