Quotes

 

“I believe in finding a soulmate. I’ve always been in monogamous relationships. I would never want to be in an open one. It’d be too awful. Monogamy can be hard work for some people. I don’t think it applies to everybody, and I don’t think a lot of people can do it.”

“I never struggled with trying to figure out what it was I wanted to do or what made the sparks go for me. I always had that huge laaa aspect to me.”

“That’s probably the direction I’ll take; I can’t keep up this face forever, you know. There is some weird ageist quality in Hollywood; perhaps that’s why I lean more toward directing and development.”

  1. I use to like Scarlett Johansson until watching her interview on 12/13/11 on Entertainment Tonight. While giving the interview Matt Damon walked on the set and she said “Oh J–us Ch–t, here he is now.” It’s apparent she’s just another sewer mouthed low life.

  2. Scarlett is very beautiful and honest actress toward her work as her film like lost in translation are too cool we really love her for that.

  3. scarlett is vary good in her acting but unfortunatly she is in limited movie. I saw her wonderfull movies but I like her movie ‘the Island’ she should be in good movies like bruce almighty

  4. Believe me or not, Match Point has been the most wonderful film i v ever seen! plus, Titanic, albeit well-produced, pales in comparison with it! Basically, i m highly interested in Scarlet’s inspiring films!

  5. Played adorable role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I can never forget that sacreficing face of her in the movie……
