Scarlett Johansson will not be playing a transgender man afterall
July 13th, 2018 under Scarlett Johannsson. [ Comments: none ]

A few weeks after Scarlett Johansson was criticized for playing a transgender man, she released a statement to Out saying she quit her role in Rub & Tug.

“In light of recent ethical questions raised surrounding my casting as Dante Tex Gill, I have decided to respectfully withdraw my participation in the project. Our cultural understanding of transgender people continues to advance, and I’ve learned a lot from the community since making my first statement about my casting and realize it was insensitive. I have great admiration and love for the trans community and am grateful that the conversation regarding inclusivity in Hollywood continues. According to GLAAD, LGBTQ+ characters dropped 40% in 2017 from the previous year, with no representation of trans characters in any major studio release. While I would have loved the opportunity to bring Dante’s story and transition to life, I understand why many feel he should be portrayed by a transgender person, and I am thankful that this casting debate, albeit controversial, has sparked a larger conversation about diversity and representation in film. I believe that all artists should be considered equally and fairly. My production company, These Pictures, actively pursues projects that both entertain and push boundaries. We look forward to working with every community to bring these most poignant and important stories to audiences worldwide.”

It is not like she has played a role that is different than who she was born as before. Oh wait, that is right, she played an Asain woman in Ghost in the Shell. She needs to stick to play characters like herself, an unlikable person.


Scarlett Johansson lost out on roles to Kirsten Dunst and Lindsay Lohan
March 29th, 2017 under Howard Stern, Scarlett Johannsson. [ Comments: none ]

Scarlett Johansson is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood these days and everyone wants to cast her in their project. That is now, but back when she was a child actress that was not the case.

Yesterday, she was on The Howard Stern Show, and he asked her if it is true if she lost out on a role in Jumanji to Kirsten Dunst. The actress told him that she did, and when the movie came out she went to see the film because she was not bitter back then.

Then she also admitted to the Shock Jock that she auditioned for The Parent Trap, and as we know lost out on that role to Lindsay Lohan. Did she see that movie? Nope, as she said she was started to get bitter by that point.

She was even turned down for a movie more recently, a role that lead to another actress winning an Oscar. That feature was Les Miserable and the actress was Anne Hathaway.

All of this proves that even A-List actresses don’t always get the roles they want.

Before Scarlett Johansson was trying to save the world as Black Widow in The Avengers, her biggest problem was trying to save her sibling who was turned into a swine in My Brother the Pig. How cute was the 14 year old in that 1999 movie?


It’s a Wonderful Christmastime with The Roots, Sing and Paul McCartney!
December 20th, 2016 under Jimmy Fallon, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe, Scarlett Johannsson. [ Comments: none ]

Recently Wonderful Christmastime was named the worst Christmas song ever. Maybe the people who voted for it, will change their minds after hearing this rendition of the Paul McCartney song with him, Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and the cast of sing including Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson and Tori Kelly that was performed tonight on The Tonight Show. I know I love the holiday classic even more. That’s right, I always liked the catchy tune.


Reese Witherspoon is a pig!

Ever wonder what would happen if American Idol and The Voice went to the animals? We will find out this Christmas in the animated soon-to-be classic Sing. That is if this trailer is any indication to how endearing it will be which I am sure it is. I know it brought a huge smile to my face. Who doesn’t love a movie that makes people of all sizes feel like a the kid that they are at heart.
Not only can’t I wait to see it, I also can’t wait to own the soundtrack.
