    oh hey old creepy orange dude…

  • Mlllllle

    Wow….the gentleman look…

  • SORELLA

    I used to like Scarlett more but recently she is complaining so much about stardom, seems ungrateful and often whining about lack of privacy and paps and stuff, she needs to get over herself, because it’s not like she’s winning any Oscars and she’ll be lucky if even in 5+ years from now if anybody even cares about her at all.

    She just look so grouchy, grumpy and miserable alot of the time. Maybe Ryan enjoys Blake more, she seems sunnier in disposition.

  • hahaha

    At first I thought she was with David Hasselhoff in those photos! LoL!

  • Black-Dahlia

    Super hot. Thank you, Scarjo

  • Delphine

    If this story is true, she is being wildly overpaid. She isn’t a very strong actress and her character isn’t all that important compared to the other avengers.

  • Just saying…

    @Sorella

    She’s been working constantly (and with great actors, too!) since she was a child. She has received and been nominated for multiple awards. And unlike other child stars, there haven’t been any scandals, drugs, partying etc. Whether or not you personally think she can (or can’t) act is up to you, but I don’t think she needs to worry about her career. Hollywood loves her.

  • Lolly

    Just imagine what they’re gonna have to pay RDJ!

  • ko Tatasugi

    @SORELLA:

    Her naked pic were leaked so no wonder she is winning for privacy.She is young and just out of a divorce so please don’t be so judgmental.There is nothing in asking for personal space.I don’t understand why people get so obsessed about celebs personal life.Look at suri living in a nightmare

  • wtf

    @Delphine: Being paid a lot of money is not about being strong actress, it is about popularity of an actor. For instance, Harry Potter kids or the twilight ones aren’t strong actors at all, but they earn multimillion dollars. But I do agree that Scarlet isn’t that big draw to the movies to be paid that much money.

  • NYC

    I love, love, love her.
    That guy is gorgeous.
    Whoever puts this down is just jealous.
    She is a great actress and a beauty, inside and out.
    Haters move on!

  • jolie

    She dates and sleeps with about anyone, doesn’t she?

  • Me

    @jolie:

    So? She’s not married. She can do whatever she wants.

    Guess Nate was given the boot. Oh, well. New guy is good-looking.

  • Love The Shoes

    I really like Scarlett but the contrasts between her and this guy’s holiday and Ryan & Blakes speaks volumes about why they didn’t make it in my opinion. I said it in Ryan & Blakes thread that I can’t imagine Scar hanging out like that ever.

  • Piper

    I smell a PR piece. Please who would be stupid enough to pay HER for that? I can’t imagine her having any fan base normally but especially in that role. Like no one else can play the token girl-hero. She’s not Christian Bale aka Batman so this story is laughable.

    Look, I know it hurts that your ex-husband and his over-exposed girlfriend is getting all of the attention right now but you’ll just have to wait for your fame-whoring turn, okay? Nice try publicist, nice try.

  • carol

    I would love to see robert pattinson and Scarlett Johansson in HATE MAIL. They are both beautiful and talented, she is very sexy.

  • Amanda

    Good for her. She’s super talented and has a good body of work that consists of both critically acclaimed films and bigger blockbusters. I feel that she deserves $20 million-per-film more than an actress like Cameron Diaz who produces crap on film.

  • Jade

    You can tell from previous interviews that she seriously regrets calling it quits with Ryan Reynolds and taking him for granted. You don’t miss your water til it’s gone. I know you can’t judge a book by it’s cover but that guy she’s with look like a complete d-bag. lol

  • Guy

    The mystery dude is pretty hot, dude has a nice butt and muscular with a great package.

  • Gossipgirl

    She isn’t worth the first million. Where is her bf, “the most beautiful man in the world”, Nate Naylor?

  • marion

    sorry for my english
    you can think whatever you want, for me she’s cute & talented. and it’s not a surprise for me that she hates paps. she’s an actress, but she’s just a human and she needs a bit of freedom. i think that when you are on vacation with normal-friends, not celebrity-friends, and someone is taking you pictures you can feel uncofmortable and awkward.

  • Sadhana

    That’s too much money for what is essentially an ensemble piece. She was good as Black Widow but so what everyone else in their roles. Can’t believe she’ll get more then Hemsworth or Renner. Speaking of Renner, has she ditched Nate the sleaze bag Naylor yet? I know people like to think Jeremy bats for the other team but there is absolutely no denying the intense sexual chemistry between he and ScarJo.

  • Jime

    I hope not. I don’t find her a great actress to be honest….and her character is not important.

  • TheRealMe

    @Sadhana:

    Hemsworth signed a multi-picture deal. He’s getting paid. Not as much as RDJ, but he won’t be hurting either.

    Renner will probably get a raise too for Avengers 2. Probably not $20M, but it will be up there. Especially if as rumor has it, they are sticking with the core cast. His asking price has also increased since he signed up for Avengers. He’s got MI4 & Bourne Legacy under his belt. If they want him & they do, they’ll pay.

    I would love to see Jeremy & Scarlett together. Their chemistry is amazing.

  • hello hater

    @Piper: Who would be stupid enough to not pay her that much is the better question. U sound really pressed. Stop already.

  • Piper

    @ hello hater

    thanks. i am really “pressed” LOL.

  • anna

    this is not Scarlett Johansonn! Not her bum, nit her breasts , not her lips!

  • Shadow X

    $ 20 M for being the worst actress in the Avengers (and in any movie really, the woman cannot act). WOW
    Everybody else deserves to be paid that kind of money, because they all gave great performances but Scarlett rather needs to be replaced than paid that much money.

  • kathryn

    i thought she was curvy. She has no a** in these photos

  • Black-Dahlia

    @anna: Of course it is her. She just lost a bit of weight, that’s all.

  • Dee

    Seriously?? 20 million dollars?!

  • Hate You

    Don’t bring her back, no one wanted her in the first one to begin with.

  • Ignorant people

    I think she is a good actress (she made great performances that earned her nominations for various golden globes, winning a bafta and other awards) and she deserves that amount of money, if you don’t know a sh*t about acting or anything in the movie business you should stop making stupid statements and comment in other posts if you don’t like her.

  • Sadhana

    @TheRealMe – You’re right about Hemsworth. But I read somewhere that Renner only got paid 800,000 for his role as Hawkeye. Even with a 50% increase, ScarJo will still be earning way more than him. I’d be surprised if that was the case. Not because I don’t like her but it just seems likes way too much money when she’s not carrying the film on her own. As for Renner/Scarjo, I’m still hoping he does Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. These two need to work with each other every chance they get!

  • bunky

    This story about the 20 mil was already debunked by her agents as BS.

  • Observer

    From the looks of it she needs a body guard to body guard her from her body guard. He looks like he’s ready to bite her.

  • Lalique

    @marion: Your English is wonderful! :-)
