opinion of Scarlett Johansson: IMPROVED DRAMATICALLY

Posted by Bel. The time is 4.02pm here in Wellington, NZ.

Scarlett Johansson blogged on Huffington Post about trash talk in the tabloids that she's been crash dieting for her role in Iron Man 2.

"If I were to lose 14 pounds, I'd have to part with both arms. And a foot... I'm frustrated with the irresponsibility of tabloid media who sell the public ideas about what we should look like and how we should get there." Gawd, aren't we all, Scarlett, aren't we ALL.

Did you know she is 5 foot 3? I did not. That is WEE.

Read the whole thing here. It is refreshing and level-headed and she gives props to some interesting organisations, in the way that only well-meaning and slightly grating celebrities can.
