The great Woody Allen working relationship exodus of late-2017/early-2018 had many famous former collaborators denouncing him. Many came out and said they were done with Woody. Some took a little while to get there, like Cate Blanchett, who at first remained on Team Woody, then backpedaled a bit by saying that maybe Dylan Farrow’s allegations should go back to trial. Others, like Alec Baldwin, Diane Keaton, and Javier Bardem, let it be known they still love Woody. And then there’s Scarlett Johansson, who recently said everything without saying a word by going out for dinner with Woody Allen.
Page Six says that Scarlett and Woody were seen having dinner on Friday night at an Italian restaurant in Manhattan. Despite Scarlett being a vocal supporter of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, her dinner date with Woody may come as a surprise, but it really shouldn’t. Woody directed Scarlett in three films: Scoop, Match Point, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Scarlett also defended Woody in 2014 from then-resurfaced accusations of sexual assault by Dylan Farrow.
Scarlett’s dinner with Woody is also a weird contrast from her appearance at the Met Gala earlier this month. Scarlett showed up in a Marchesa gown, the first celebrity to do so since Harvey Weinstein tanked Marchesa’s reputation seven months earlier. Scarlett implied her decision was an act of “Don’t blame the wife for the husband’s grossness.”
Scarlett and Woody probably met to talk about a future project. Or maybe Scarlett was putting in some charity hours by cutting up Woody’s food into tiny pieces for him and making sure he didn’t choke on a meatball. Because I’m sure we can all agree that would be a real shame if that happened.
Before Harvey Weinstein was officially outed as the closest DNA relative to a bridge troll, it seemed as though every red carpet had at least one star in a Marchesa dress. Marchesa is co-owned by Harvey’s now-estranged wife Georgina Chapman. Then the stories about Harvey went public, and A-list actresses were running away from Marchesa as if it was a deep-fried gluten sandwich. Nobody wanted to wear Marchesa anymore. Well, nobody until Scarlett Johansson, who did just that at the Met Gala.
Porn star and presidential irritant Stormy Daniels popped up during the cold open on Saturday Night Live last night. Stormy is POTUS’ current least favorite person and SNL knows that there’s nothing in the world more funzies than pissing off our humorless egomaniac of a president. So they had her pop up during a Trump sketch amidst a cavalcade of guest stars including Ben Stiller as Trump’s praying-for-death attorney Michael Cohen, Martin Short as Trump’s ethically challenged (and crazy as hell) physician Dr. Harold Bornstein, Scarlett Johansson reprising her Ivanka Trump, and Jimmy Fallon as Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner. SNL’s MVP Kate McKinnon also debuted a startlingly accurate impression of gabby Trump hanger-on Rudy Guiliani, who continues to deplete all of the goodwill he inspired during 9/11.
ColiScar isn’t a great celebrity couple name (are any of them, really?), but I’m going with it, because when you look at it real quick, it reads as “CuloScar.”
It’s been a little under a year since Colin Jost of Saturday Night Live became the object of jealousy for a million nerd boners by wet humping on Black Widow. Since then, there’s been riveting sighting after riveting sighting of Colin and Scarlett Johansson sucking face. I guess things are serious enough for them to agree to forever be bonded in movie premiere pics, because ScarJo brought ColiJo (I refuse to call him CoJo since there is only one that matters to me) as her date to the premiere of Nerd Movie: Will Make Infinity Money in L.A. last night.
Vanity Fair reports that Scarlett Johansson wants to snatch back James Franco’s #TimesUp lapel pin due to his perceived hypocrisy when it comes women and sexual harassment. Look, she’s only worked with Woody Allen twice and it was before 2014 so you can stop sending her loan applications for that glass house, you catty kitties! Or not, she DID sort of refer to bad touching the underaged as “a lifestyle.“ Yikes. Continue reading
Almost every one of The Avengers that matters (sorry Hawkeye) has gotten their own stand-alone film, sometimes multiples. How many Iron Mans are we up to now? 13? Captain America got one, so did Thor, but not Black Widow.
