The last time we checked in on Scarlett Johansson’s divorce from her French husband Romain Dauriac, things were getting dirtier than a cup of unpopped popcorn kernels burning at the bottom of a pot. Scarlett accused Roman of blabbing to the press about the details of the custody battle over their 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy. Roman accused her of being the one making it public. But then last night, Scarlett and Romain decided to play nice and attend an art event in New York City together.
A source tells People that Scarlett’s decision to bring Romain to the Singular Object Art Opening Cocktail Reception is her way of trying to “remain friendly and supportive.”
“She wants to help him in any way in terms of his career.”
I just pictured Scarlett setting up a LinkedIn account for Romain and sitting there like “I know he owns a popcorn store in Paris, but what else does he do? Is he still a journalist?”
It seemed for a while that the custody battle between Scarlett and Romain was about to turn nuclear. But I guess they’re all good for now? Although it’s kind of hard to tell by that picture. Romain really only has one facial expression, which is: posing for a passport photo.
Ghost in the Shell made a grand total of $19 million at the domestic box office this past weekend and that’s almost enough to cover the movie’s wig budget. What am I saying? That busted and raggedy “Moe Howard with two weave pieces taped to its sides” wig didn’t even cost $19. Ghost in the Shell, which cost $110 million to make, came in third behind The Boss Baby, which isn’t a Donald Trump biopic, ($49 million) and Beauty and the Beast ($47.5 million). Yeah, Ghost in the Shell got its ass beat bad by a yodeling CGI buffalo and a bossy computer animated baby in a teeny tiny Men’s Wearhouse suit.
One hot millisecond after it was announced that non-Asian Scarlett Johansson was cast as Major Motoko Kusanagi in the live-action movie version of Ghost in the Shell, many were rightfully pissed that Hollywood had whitewashed yet another Asian character. When ScarJo was asked about the controversy earlier this year, she Crisco’d up her arm and dug deep into her ass to pull out an explanation. ScarJo could’ve kept it real and just said, “I LOVE MONAY!“, but she instead said she took the role in the name of feminism since Ghost in the Shell is a big action movie lead by a female protagonist.
The makers of Ghost in the Shell (including the director of the original anime adaptation) explained ScarJo’s casting the same way Tilda Swinton explained her casting in Doctor Strange. They said it’s not whitewashing since the character ain’t even human, let alone white. If anything, the robots should be protesting about a human taking one of their roles since ScarJo’s character is a cyborg. So basically, the Talking ScarJo Robot Doll got robbed.
ScarJo is doing the rounds to whore out Ghost in the Shell, and during an interview with Good Morning America, she echoed what the makers said.
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.
