Scarlett Johansson


The world is talking about Scarlett Johansson, a significant and remarkable actress with an hour glass figure. Esquire magazine recently named Scarlett Johansson the world's sexiest woman.

Born in New York to a Danish father Karsten Johansson and Jewish American mother Melanie Sloan, Scarlett is the youngest of her siblings. She has an elder sister Vanessa who is also an actress, an elder brother Adrian, and her twin brother Hunter is an actor, too. Johansson graduated from Professional Children's School, Manhattan, NYC where she trained for acting and theatre.

Ladder to Fame
Scarlett started her acting career in films in the late 1990s; however it was her starlet performance in "The Horse Whisperer" in 1998, which gained her notoriety and won her accolades. She proved her worth and maturity as an actress with a dynamite performance that won her the Best Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival for the 2003 feature film "Lost in Translation."

Her break-out role in "Lost in Translation" was what launched her acting career. Overnight, she gained importance and prominence as a well known and exceptionally talented actress. In 2004, she got an offer to join the Academy of Motion Picture Art and Sciences. This was the beginning of a new chapter for her and soon she found herself in demand as an actress. She was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for her role in "A Love Song for Bobby Long."

The best was yet to come and soon she found her name on a short list of actresses for a leading role in "Mission Impossible III." However, due to a scheduling problem, she had to let it go. But this was not the end of the road for her and soon she was seen with Ewan McGregor in the Michael Bay-directed futuristic action film, "The Island" as the main female lead. She has another movie "The Prestige," in the pipeline and slated for release in October 2006. She is also cast opposite Natalie Portman and Eric Bana in "The Other Boleyn Girl," which is to release in 2007.

Calvin Klein hooked up Scarlett, Kiera Knightley and Tom Ford for advertising the perfume, "Moment." Additionally, Scarlett appeared on the front page cover of Vanity Fair. Scarlett further added laurels to her cap by becoming the brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton in 2005 and L'Oreal in 2006. Maxim, one of the most famous magazines put Scarlett on their hotlist. She was voted number 6 in their Hot 100 issue in May 2006. Later on she went on to sign up with Reebok for their new advertisement slated for release in the spring of 2007.

This may be crazy, but it's worth a shot. I only have one famous(very famous) friend, and I asked her about getting in touch with you. She said just do what you always do, you will find a way. Ok, here's my way! Not going to go into too many details (spoil the first and possibly second+ dates) but I was born just outside NYC in Yonkers, NY to two incredible parents. Only child, so yes, I was spoiled, but taught a lot of valuable lessons as my parents allowed me to make mistakes. Ok, reason I'm writing this. I fell in love (not literally) with you the first time I saw you in The Horse Whisperer. Have not seen all your work, kinda busy opening bars and restaurants in NYC but I would love to have a nice simple dinner, with cheese of course! If you are going to be in NYC anytime soon, and are willing to give an average guy a chance(well, maybe a bit above average but very humble) I would love to have a bite with you. Not sure how this works, but you have my email, and I would be nice to hear from you. Otherwise, I understand, and I wish you nothing but the best.
Take care,

Dear Ms. Johansson,
I coach swimming at a large public high school in Brooklyn. Today I cut out a beautiful photo of you and put it on a board on the other side of the pool. The boys on my swimming team dove in the pool and swam to the other side. It was so motivational. You should have seen how much you are appreciated. I told them that if they worked very hard, perhaps one day they would get an actual visit from you. I know that might not be possible, but you never know.

Ms. Johansson,
I read that you would like to open a bakery; I know this sounds crazy, I am not a stalker. I am married and have a three year old. It has been my dream to open a bakery with traditional baked goods, wedding cakes, but also healthy,savory food. My husband can barely take care of us and my son has to live with my in-laws, I have health problems and was not able to have kids, but thanks to a miracle I am graced to have my little angel. I am very passoniate about this and would give anything in the world to make it come true. Most people would kill not to have to work, but I would kill to have my own shop. I know this will probably never get to you, I just wanted to try. I have been following you for a while and my husband and I love your work. Good Luck and take care.
