Celebrity Guessing Game: Who’s This Brunette Bombshell?
Can you guess who this brunette bombshell is? Hint: It’s probably not who you think it is.
Take a look at the picture above. A good, looooooong look. Who do you think it is? No, it’s not Lindsay Lohan in a still from Liz and Dick. Hint: She starred in a HUGE blockbuster this summer—and not only that, but it was arguably the only summer blockbuster of 2012 that was actually a bonafide hit. Start the clock: Three… two… one…
Give up? Here’s your answer:
It’s Scarlett Johansson.
I know, I know—what? No! No way is that ScarJo! But here’s a closer look in which you can actually see her face, and yep: There’s that signature ScarJo pout underneath all those brunette curls and that big fur coat. Wowzers!
The Avengers star is currently in Glasgow, Scotland doing reshoots for her next movie, Under the Skin. Directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast), the sci-fi flick is based off of the novel of the same name by Michael Faber and tells the story of an alien trapped in human form. So what exactly is this alien being doing on earth? She works for a rich corporation on her planet, and her job is to pick up hitchhikers—in order to turn them into a culinary delicacy her people happen to adore.
Sounds grisly, no? But don’t worry; it’s not just shock value. The novel is darkly satirical and deals with some pretty important political themes: Big business, intensive farming, environmental decay, and so on. As Scarlett said about the film earlier this year, “Okay, yes, I do play an alien who is wearing my own skin; but it’s actually not a science-fiction film. It’s sort of a film that asks existential questions and is much more complex than the logline.”
We’re still waiting on a release date for this one, but we’re intrigued enough to keep our ear to the ground about it. Stay tuned!
