This is news that will either make you reach for several grains of the salt of your choice or scream with delight that two of the Avengers might be doing it. According to Star (via Hollywood Life), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans are fixing to get together.
It was devastating news this week when Alec Baldwin revealed that he’s put an expiration date on his masterful mockery of… that guy. But, but, he’s so good at it. He captures almost every odious component of…that guy’s…character! They better get someone just as good to carry on. Someone who’s played the part before. Someone that annoys Twitler just as much as Alec does. Hmm.
Yesterday we learned that Scarlett Johansson’s divorce and subsequent custody battle with her French husband Romain Dauriac was getting more uncomfortable than watching ScarJo get a reach-around kiss from John Travolta. Scarlett filed divorce papers on Monday and asked for primary custody of their 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy. Romain’s lawyer publicly talked bout the situation, to which Scarlett responded by releasing a statement asking “other parties” involved to keep their le trap shut and do this in a private way.
“It is indeed unfortunate, especially for our daughter, that Scarlett filed in Court and made our personal differences so public. I would implore her to withdraw her action promptly and go back, as uncomfortable as it might be, to the negotiating table. We are the parents of a lovely daughter whom we will continue to co-parent for many years and share her joys and sorrows as only a parent can.”
I love how that statement is both shady (see: the part accusing Scarlett “Private Person” Johansson of making their drama public) and art-house sophisticated (see: that part about sharing her joys and sorrows).
The thing I learned the most from Romain’s statement is that he communicates with words. I always assumed Romain just moved from room to room, communicating solely through intense gazes. There goes my theory that their divorce battle would reach a breaking point over a moody stare-down.
And yes, this is the official “Brace Yourselves For Another Possibly Messy Custody Battle” face:
In January, we learned that Scarlett Johansson and her French journalist husband of about 2 years, Romain Dauriac, broke up over the summer after deciding that they didn’t want to wake up to each other’s faces every day anymore. It seemed like ScarJo and RoDa’s split wasn’t going to go the way of other celebrity splits (read: into a diarrhea puddle). While separated, ScarJo and Romain opened up their fancy popcorn shop in Paris together, and even after the news of their break-up came out, they posed for a picture together at some event. But since a Hollywood divorce just can’t go smoothly anymore, Romain’s lawyer tells Page Six that shit may get bumpy.
We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
During last night’s Oscars, Dakota Johnson presented with her Fifty Shades Duller co-star Jamie Dornan, and they did a hilarious bit where they pretended to have chemistry with each other. Clearly Dakota was afraid all the crotch-searing sexuality between her and Jamie would be too much for the audience to handle, and she dressed accordingly. And by accordingly, I mean she counter-balanced it by dressing in an unsexy satin nightgown situation that was made by Gucci.
