Enjoy this week’s poll entitled “A Rose of Any Other Name!”
Born in NYC on November 22, 1984, Scarlett Ingrid Johansson is no newcomer to the camera. Having been in many films since the age of nine in a film entitled North (co-starring Elijah Wood and Jason Alexander), Scarlett’s fame seemed to truly take off after her work in Lost in Translation with Bill Murray. While some prefer this as her best work, she has starred in several other films that allowed her to both be nominated for and win numerous awards.
- She auditioned for The Parent Trap but the part went to Lindsay Lohan
- Is a fan of Woody Allen
- She campaigned greatly for presidential hopeful John F. Kerry and for President Obama
- Celebrated her 20th birthday at Disneyland
- First role (uncredited) was in a skit during the first year of “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” (1993) at age 8.
- Won the role of Black Widow in Iron Man 2 after, reportedly, Emily Blunt dropped out.
- Is 3 minutes older than her twin brother Hunter
“It’s a great thing to get older and learn. I don’t feel bound in any way by how many years I’ve lived. I identify just as much with my 86-year-old grandmother as I do with my sister.”
“What I respect most in people is naturalness and authenticity. I like to be able to see into their soul. I aspire to being a truthful person.”
Thought to be lost for over 50 years, here is the first novel by one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century.
Set in New York during the summer of 1945, this is the story of a young carefree socialite, Grady, who must make serious decisions about the romance she is dangerously pursuing and the effect it will have on everyone involved.
Fans of Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Capote’s short stories will be thrilled to read Summer Crossing.
Take a look at some of the films that Scarlett has been a part of:
A few of her films that I am looking forward to seeing: We Bought A Zoo, Under the Skin, Marvel’s The Avengers, oh, and a little-known upcoming film entitled “The Sp1der & The Rose!” 😀 Keep a lookout for it!
*don’t laugh at my awesome “Paint” skills with the title and cast! 😀
The poll closes on 11-29-11 and the results will post on next week’s “Time to Vote Tuesday!”
