Scarlet Johansson

Hollywood's leading females were out in force yesterday as tens of thousands of women and men demonstrated in cities across the globe.

Returning for its second year, the Women's March began in 2017 in opposition to the newly elected Donald Trump.

Reproductive health and Trump's anti-abortion stance were just some of the issues being protested at this year's event, and while the tone of the demonstrations remained highly political, recent allegations of rampant sexual harassment in the entertainment industry were also a topic of discussion.

Speaking to crowds at the Women's March rally in Los Angeles, actress Scarlett Johansson gave a powerful speech on behalf of the Time's Up campaign – during which, she called out James Franco, who had claimed to be a supporter of the movement despite being accused of sexual misconduct by five different women.

“How could a person publicly stand by an organisation that helps to provide support for victims of sexual assault while privately preying on people who have no power?” she asked the crowd.

Adding: “I want my pin back, by the way,” on reference to the Time's Up pin worn by Franco on the Golden Globes red carpet earlier this month.

While she did not mention him by name, a representative for the star later confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that she was indeed referring to the Disaster Artist director.

James has denied all allegations of wrongdoing, claiming that he prides himself on being able to take responsibility for his actions.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the actor said the claims made against him were “not accurate” and said he completely supports “people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long.”



Scarlett Johansson is officially a mum after giving birth to a baby girl!

The star’s rep revealed the news, saying that “mother and daughter are doing well.”

Scarlett and her fiancé Romain Dauriac have named their little girl Rose – we love it! And it has connotations with the colour red, just like her mum's name – it's perfect!

We don’t think we’ll be seeing any photos of little Rose any time soon though, as the couple are supporters of the ‘No Kids Policy’ which aims to keep celebrity children out of the spotlight, and they have asked for people to respect their privacy. Scarlett even kept out of the limelight herself during the course of her pregnancy, though we did get the odd sighting of her cute baby bump!

Scarlett and Romain been together since November 2012, and got engaged in August 2013. However, the actress isn’t in any rush to get married as she wants to enjoy being engaged as it is “an exciting time to enjoy and to really savour.” Awh! We hope she enjoys being a mum too, congratulations!




Two of Hollywood’s hottest actresses are to star in a remake of one of our favourite Disney classics The Jungle Book

Lupita Nyong’o and Scarlett Johansson are both in negotiations to join Idris Elba in Disney’s latest adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic book, which will be directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau.

Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave star Lupita is said to be set to closing a deal any day now to play Rakcha, a wolf mother who adopts the film’s star, Mowgli.

Meanwhile, Scarlett is expected to take on a voice role as Kaa, a python who eats her rival animals by hypnotising them.

Kaa is one of the film’s main baddies along with Shere Khan, a man-eating tiger voiced by Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom star Elba.

The Jungle Book script comes from Justin Marks, the brains behind Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. 

We can’t wait!



Scarlett Johansson has admitted that she was nervous about going make-up free for Vanity Fair’s 20th anniversary edition.

Talking to Queen Latifah, the Captain America: The Winter Solider actress admitted to wanting to hide her face behind her hair.  She said: “It seemed so close, move that camera… I want to put my hair in my face and make it messy.”

However, The Avengers star wasn’t alone in going bare-faced as Labour Day actress Kate Winslet also took the plunge.

The photographs were taken by photographer Chuck Close who told Vanity Fair: “’I don’t do glamour shots, and they’re not airbrushed or whatever. So they can be, um…they can be rough.”

It’s not the first time the American actress has gone bare as she had to do a nude scene for her latest film, Under the Skin.

Talking about stripping off for camera, Scarlet said: “It really made me aware of when I was doing it, all the kinds of judgments and all of these things we place on ourselves. How self-conscious you can be about the way you look, your own vanity … It was really challenging but it was interesting.”
