Scarlett Johansson shows her Notre-Dame pride
She wasn’t picked for the lead role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo because she was considered to be too beautiful.
What happened was, I remember having conversations with [director David] Fincher and he said, ‘You have to look like you’re totally uncaring of yourself, deprived … you’re fragile …’ I said, ‘I will, I can be this person!’ And he said ‘No, you can’t’.”
Someone actually got paid to take this shot. Best. Job. EVER!

During the filming of Match Point, Woddy Allen described Johansson as “sexually overwhelming”, saying that he found it “very hard to be extra witty around a sexually overwhelming, beautiful young woman who is wittier than you are. Any time I say anything amusing, Scarlett tops me.”
The two met and hit it off well on the set of their latest movie ‘Match Point’. Johansson adds that she was surprised to find that Allen is ‘actually very sweet, thoughtful and romantic, in his own strange way’.
One morning. Beachfront. With Scarlett Johansson. Is this paradise or what?!
“I’m only scared of birds. Something about wings and beaks and the flapping. I’m terrified of them. If they’d asked me to put a bird on my shoulder I would’ve done it, but it would’ve been hard.”
Birds aren’t the only animals that make Johansson jump.
“I cannot stand cockroaches,” she shudders. “That’s one thing I absolutely couldn’t do. But that’s not really an animal, is it? It’s an insect.”
Once she woke up with one on her face and now can’t abide the mere thought of them.
