Scarlett Johansson "I can afford to be picky (about acting parts)"

"I'm fortunate enough to be at a status in my career where I can afford to be picky. I'm not concerned with introducing myself to the audience. I've been working for 20 years and I don't feel like I have anything to prove at this point, to anyone, except myself and my director. I've had a really productive couple of years,"

"I'm not concerned with introducing myself to the audience"

That works out well, because the average person wouldn't have a clue as to who you are anyway.

Lucky you.

I loved when she was pissing off Gwyneth who avoided her entirely on the Iron Man 2 set.

Not for long.

Lol whatever bitch try making a decent movie for a change. You are not A list and you have terrible taste in choosing scripts.

by Anonymousreply 609/09/2013

I dunno about her not being A List.. she has very high name recognition and is even given a portmanteau, one of the best ones, with ScarJo. And a fashion muse, used on campaigns.

I'd say she's A- list at least. Definitely not B List. She isn't thought much of as an actress, but that's not the only criteria. She definitely had that It Girl cache 10 years ago.

That's not a bad comparison Army at r8.

There's something to be said for her drive that she's still so visible and works so much. She's rather limited in range acting-wise, she must be highly professional to work with and liked by directors as she keeps getting hired for decent roles. Landing the Avengers gig was very lucky for her.

She's plucky I'll grant her that.

She's a shockingly bad actress. Woody only cast her because he wanted to fuck her.

by Anonymousreply 1009/09/2013

She's limited to say the least and will NOT transition to middle age well. Its sex bomb or nothing.

That said, I like her, she seems decent and there are MUCH more deserving targets in Hollywood.

Is 30 new 40 for women in Hollywood?

by Anonymousreply 1209/09/2013

I wouldn't call her an amazing actress but I find her entertaining. I thought she was great in Vicki, Cristina, Barcelona.

So can I

by Anonymousreply 1409/09/2013

She may be A-list in terms of name recognition, but she has yet to open a movie on her own. I'd say she's B+.

by Anonymousreply 1509/09/2013

She has the most wonderful ass and that is the reason she can afford to be picky.

by Anonymousreply 1609/09/2013

She didn't deserve that Tony.

by Anonymousreply 1709/09/2013

R16 that surely makes a huge impression here.

by Anonymousreply 1809/09/2013


How is her ass wonderful? Would you say that it's womanly? What makes it so?

by Anonymousreply 1909/09/2013

I first noticed her ass in Iron Man II. The camera followed it throughout the kung fu routine.

It was the only entertaining part of the movie.

by Anonymousreply 2009/09/2013

Everything she said is true. That said, she's a mediocre actress at best. Wealth and super-fame, tick. Acting quality, no, not so much but why should she care really.

by Anonymousreply 2109/09/2013

God she's such a horrible actress.

by Anonymousreply 2209/09/2013

She's had a few good roles. She has a BAFTA award for Lead Actress and a Tony award as well. She's like Sandra Bullock who hangs around making mediocre movies but somehow manages to have the strongest performance in an otherwise weak year and win an Oscar. That'll be Scarlett.

by Anonymousreply 2309/09/2013

r23 She even had a double nomination that year at the BAFTAs!

Strange times, but the UK release date meant Theron was out for Monster. But Charlize was so strong that they had to acknowledge it again next year with a nomination, something they don't always do (Bullock).

Ask any straight man if he knows who Scarlett Johansson is and you'll understand it doesn't matter if she can't act.

by Anonymousreply 2509/09/2013

That fucking bitch can financially afford to be picky, but her career is in the shithouse.

by Anonymousreply 2609/09/2013

I wonder what happened with Nolan that she didn't become one of his regulars.

by Anonymousreply 2709/09/2013

She was sexy as hell in Match Point, especially in the rain scene. Also looked awesome in leather in The Avengers!

I really want to see 'Under the Skin.'

by Anonymousreply 3009/09/2013

She an average actress. Her youth and good looks are her best assets. Very much overrated.

by Anonymousreply 3109/09/2013

I've kind of already forgotten about her.

by Anonymousreply 3209/09/2013

R30, the reviews sound like they changed the book up quite a bit, which is too bad but I still want to see it.

Ethel Kennedy "I can afford to be picky (about my nose)"

by Anonymousreply 3409/10/2013

And what exactly about that comment is offensive, arrogant or false?



by Anonymousreply 3509/10/2013

It's true, but that doesn't mean it's not arrogant.

by Anonymousreply 3609/10/2013

She's a middling actress, but seems unobjectionable otherwise. Works hard, low famewhore index, no scandals or bad behavior, no reason to hate her. So when her looks fade and the straight guys abandon her for younger chicks, she'll fade away.

Which makes me realize that Gwynneth may be wise in developing a following of devoted Haters. She's at an age where talent isn't enough to sustain a career, and the only thing between her and oblivion is the ability to get up people's noses. She's used it to stay relevant when all her haters have faded away, something Johanssen will never be able to do.

by Anonymousreply 3709/10/2013

I actually kind of like her.
