The Rest Of The Story, 2005…

The lost portion of The Scarlett Johansson 911 Transcript follows:
“I’m Scarlett Johansson, an actor… no, The Island was not my fault… do you know how much press I got for fondling Benecio del Toro in an elevator and they couldn’t open that movie… yes… no, just fondling… he had a sore… exactly! if I’m not a big enough star to open The Island, why are these paparazzi following me to Disneyland… okay, but only if you send the police now… ‘What am I, Scarlett Johnasson, doing after personally shutting down Steven Spielberg’s studio? I’m going to Disneyland!’… thanks… are they on the way?… yeah, I got special passes from Jeffrey… yes, they’re real… are you still recording this?”

  1. The Premadator says:

    Is the way you spelled 911 (here 9/11) on purpose?
    Anyway… this is hilarious. I’ve now gone from Johansson-Friendly to downright Johansson-Enthusiastic!
    What a cutie.

  2. BluStealer says:

    This is why Scarlett is a star. For great quotes like this.

  3. David Poland says:

    Actually, 9/11 was completely subconcious… and then when you pointed it out, I thought it was irony funny… and then I thought it could be offensive… so I changed it… thanks…

  4. BluStealer says:

    I did think it had something to do with 9-11 from the headline too. I was expecting to read some wacky 19 yr old actress stuff. But we got much better.

  5. The Premadator says:

    Given this town’s E Channel obession with celebrity, the 9-11 thing was spot on.

  6. Josh says:

    Good summer article. I can’t wait to see what they say next May when those films are all blockbusters. Business booming?

  7. Terence D says:

    Alright I’ll ask it. Why are there people following Scarlett Johansson?

  8. Mark Ziegler says:

    She must be a huge star now. Journo’s are following her around town and to Disney.

  9. Angelus21 says:

    If Miss Johansson really wants publicity she should go clubbing, spend a lot of time doing coke in the bathrooms, and hangout with Paris Hilton.

  10. PandaBear says:

    Whoever got chosen to follow her really got the short end of the stick.
    He couldn’t get a cool gig like flying to the islands to stalk someone or get shot at in front of Britneys house.

  11. Wrecktum says:

    I have a massive crush on Scarlett Johansson. I’d risk my very stable and happy marraige to be with Scarlett Johansson.

  12. PandaBear says:

    It ain’t that stable if you’d risk it with an affair with a 20 yr old.

  13. Richard Nash says:

    My wife would let that happen. Be the first to congratulate me. That is if SJ won an Academy Award. Or The Island opened at #1. She wouldn’t let me slum it.

  14. joefitz84 says:

    You guys have mighty cool wives if they let you take a starlet into the bedroom.

  15. Sanchez says:

    Too bad they didn’t pull these kinds of antics BEFORE the big blockbuster movie opened.

  16. sky_capitan says:

    The 911 operator didn’t ask her about those pics of Tom dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz? I was looking forward to her insight on the subject.

  17. Sanchez says:

    Watch out, Cap. You can get sued by the Scientologists with that kind of gossiping.

  18. Eldrick says:

    did she really say that, or did David make it up. I like Johansson, a lot of people are bitchy about her, not me.

  19. bicycle bob says:

    she just may be the best actress out of this under 25 bunch. not saying much but she does bring it.

  20. BluStealer says:

    I’d much rather watch her in a movie than the Lohan’s and the Duff’s of this world. She just chooses really interesting projects. All these other girls would kill for her career right now even with The Island on the resume.

  21. LesterFreed says:

    I like my ladies a little more mature and older. Give me a Kidman. Give me some Angela Basset. Someone with some experience.

  22. RoyBatty says:

    Might be just me, but doesn’t say a helluva lot about the slate of movies that were given to us this summer that at the end of the season we are discussing an actress who starred in the most noteable flop trying to blame her bad driving on paparazzi? (and I love Johansson, but this has sounded like an excuse from the moment I heard about it)
    So far, the most compelling moment of fictional narrative I have experienced was the last 15 minutes of the Six Feet Under finale.

  23. RoyBatty says:

    Doesn’t this say a lot about the slate of summer films we were given that here at the end of the season we are not discussing the films themselves, but an incident involving an actress who starred in the most noteable flop of it?
    The most fulfilling moment I had involving fictional narrative happened on the small screen, watching just the last 15 minutes of the Six Feet Under finale versus every film that came out this summer.

  24. LesterFreed says:

    I’d rather have root canal than watch Six Feet Under. What a bore. Give me Rescue Me. Give me Entourage.

  25. PandaBear says:

    Entourage has gotten a lot better in Year 2. Surprisingly so because I didn’t think it had it in them.

  26. KamikazeCamelV2.0 says:

    Nobody better talk about the Six Feet Under finale without five kilometres of warning! We haven’t even been given the first episode of the final season let alone be anywhere near the finale.
    BTW, Lindsay is in the new Robert Altman movie alongside Meryl Streep and co. I’d say that’s a great move.
    Scarlett’s great though. She just needs to wear better clothes.
    (hi, I’m back now)

  27. PandaBear says:

    No spoilers should be given on this anyway. To anything unless a big chunk of time has gone by. We can all be a little classy here.

  28. KamikazeCamelV2.0 says:

    Oh, you’d be surprised Panda. Some people think everybody sees everything the day they see it in America.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
