Natalie Portman & Scarlett Johansson -

Smart, sexy and serious, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman are Hollywood’s hot duo.

The pair, who star as rival sisters in the forthcoming The Other Boleyn Girl, sport strange collars and slicked-back dos on the March 2008 cover of W Magazine.

“I get branded a lot as a good girl,” Natalie, 26, said during their cover shoot in Santa Fe, NM. “I’m, like, the prude, and you’re more sexy, more like … ”

“A harlot!” Scarlett, 23, blurts.

Nat and Scarlett vie for the affection of King Henry VIII (Eric Bana) in The Other Boleyn Girl, out Feb. 29.

This March 2008 issue of W hits newsstands nationwide on Tuesday, Feb. 26.

  • momodd

    OMG! how can a mag having 2 hot beauties doing that terrible cover??? The two are horrible here! Scarlett is threaten and Natalie looks like a 13 years old girl!!!!!! She has never been less sexy!!!!
    Let face it… there isn’t a good chemistry between them. Loak at this Boleyn trailer! They looks like girls disguided with mommy’s chothes… Finally, historical movies are really not done for Portman!!!

  • hottest couple ever

    I like both these ladies. I have liked Natalie ever since her performance in “The Professional” . Natalie is not only beautiful, but smart as well. She is a a very good actress. I predict an oscar for her in the near future.

  • indiacarter

    They both look hot, but Natalie’s hotter. Scarletts boobs look comical.

    Btw, what happened to Justin Timberlake at the grammys? how come he wasnt there?

  • gypsy Marie

    Can’t wait to see this movie!

  • Wow!

    Natalie looks stunning. What a beautiful face she has!

    Scarlett does not look good at all. Her boobs do look comical.

  • dinah

    What a fierce picture.

  • kROQ

    Yes, enough of Rachel Bilson!

    Make room for these drama queens.

  • Wow!

    Natalie looks stunning. She has a beautiful face.

    Scarlett does not look good at all. She looks better with natural looking makeup. Her boobs do look comical.

  • #theotherboleyngirl

    they both look pretty in this cover, it’s a shame they have both turned out to be such lacklustre actresses.

    NP hasn’t shown any decent acting chops since the Professional where she is playing a version of herself. She is inspid on camera and completely lacks any dynamic screen presence, she is not capable of disappearing into a character, all you see is her wailing away.

    SJ had more promise as a capable actress in Girl with a Pearl Earring and Lost in Translation and a more luminous screen presence but has chosen to be typecast in slutty roles.

  • J

    All of JT’s women since young Britney have looked busted and Scarlett is no exception-yuck! natalie looks gorgeous tho

  • http://=== w

    not a good pic of scar but natalie looks nice

  • Original Shar

    I just saw them on the Today show and they really seem to like each other. Very cute together.

  • xxxxx

    i can’t stand scarlett and she looks terrible here. but i love natalie. she’s obviously looking much better here but i think she’s also a lot prettier in general.

  • lol

    They’re both wearing Miu Miu’s S/S collection on the cover, and I think they both look very striking. :)

  • Ana

    oh no… scarlett looks stupid!! natalie looks great as always^^

  • suzy

    Natalie Portman makes Scarlett looks very plain. Natalie is another level she is true beauty.

  • mothernature

    Both woman are profound actress’ s I think you could put them in a paper bag and they would sell magazine covers no matter if they looked like Biker chics or not..To me It will be refreshing to see these two on a cover then to see the store flooded with Rachel Bilson batshit..

    I can’t wait to see Boleyn girl..that’s out in 2 weeks..I hope they premier this soon..I just heard reviews on the Jumper movie was said to avoid it at all costs..and I knew that too..poor Hayden Christensen I so wish they would have paired him with the likes of Natalie or Scarlett

  • MIzzy

    they’re both overrated in terms of their looks and acting skills.

  • SUN

    I think the dog is the best looking thing on the cover.

  • lily

    love them both. can’t wait to see them in the movie with sexy bana. HOT.

  • Helena

    I hate W magazine, they always photoshop celebrities to the max to make them looks horrid and it looks like it got to the beautiful Scarlett. They made her look like the third Olsen twin! Portman looks great, though.

  • cristine

    I agree with #30.

  • Tanda

    The cover is absolutely revolting!

  • SofiaRocket

    Beautiful or not, Scarlett has MUCH more sex appeal than Natalie…

  • vitoria

    natalie is waaaay prettier than scarlett.

  • Jane

    natalie got this in the bag. however, i think i don’t agree with their opinions politically. i just wish sometimes they would just shut up and make a movie. i know they are humans just like me and have opinions but it makes me not want to support their movies.

  • billybeat

    go to to hear new mariah song touch my body

  • lola

    Awful cover and photoshoot, but they’re both so smart and the interviews are so great, that I forgive the photographer.

    –read my blog at

  • made in paris

    they both look hot BUT I PREFER NATALIE (beauty and braines)

  • sergio

    This photoshoot isn’t one of the bests.

    these 2 girls are really beautiful but that makeup and clothes.. well, they could look worlds better.


    this girl has it all

  • Souhila

    Natalie all the way !

  • Angel Baby

    ok they both look like crap

  • gi

    Very nice pics

  • kate

    there both gorgeous

  • layla

    i love them both!! we need more girls like them out there with BRAINS. i’m sick of seeing all those little disney stars jumping up and down, throwing peace signs at photographers, thinking they’re so cute.

  • McLovin

    Natalie looks friggin gorgeous in the cover! And I agree, Scarlett’s doesn’t do her justice.

  • hypocrite

    I love both of their looks! Scarlett looks more fiesty and “get away from me you bitch!”. lol

    These pics and the today show clip have me wanting this movie to come out NOW!!! I already got two tickets to see it!

  • janebird

    they are both wooden overrated actresses that have made it this far because of their “looks” really. In hollywood the only young women we seem to have are either the trashy trainwrecks or the boring wooden actresses that get by because people think they look good. This is why we need more Ellen Pages in hollywood!

    Natalie is a very pretty and smart girl but she’s a wooden actress. Scarlett is not very smart and so overrated in the looks only because she goes around with blonde hair and bright red lipstick and pushes her boobs out thinking she’s Marilyn Monroe. She seems way too into her self. She is just a plain version of the gorgeous Charlize theron to me. She only gets roles for her looks and hype and because that perverted Woody Allen wants to bang her.

  • andrew

    The picture of scarlett on the cover is very good. Its got a very high fashion vibe about it…very sasha pivovarova. Natalie Portman looks lovely as well…they look excellent in their own way
