If you can’t rewatch these films in the theater, this is the best experience you can have in your own home.”

Scarlett Johansson Says There's Nothing "Creepy" About That John Travolta Photo

  • TooFab
New York (AP) -- Scarlett Johansson is defending John Travolta and calls the image of him kissing her on the Academy Awards red carpet "an unfortunate still-frame from a live-action encounter that was totally sweet and totally welcome." In an exclusive statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Johansson said: "There is nothing at all strange, creepy or inappropriate about John Travolta." She called her former co-star of the film "A Love Song for Bobby Long" a "class act."  Travolta greeted Johansson at Sunday's Oscars with a kiss and his arm around her waist. The photo has since been turned into an Internet meme. But Johannson said the image doesn't reflect the moment, calling it "yet another way we are misguided, misinformed and sensationalized by the 24-hour news cycle." Read more

Golden Globes: Got Any Comedy/Musical Predictions?

a comedy?Despite bold statements every year about who is campaigning in which Golden Globe category, the news is usually fluid so don't get too attached to anything you hear. Awards strategists are free to change their mind. As it stands now, August: Osage County and Before Midnight are planning Comedy campaigns and Blue Jasmine is aiming for drama. Curious, right? Dark laughs are flexible, don'cha know, and they can find traction in either category. We here at The Film Experience have long mourned the death of the Comedy or Musical category in the way we also mourn the death of the Supporting Oscar categories in that they too rarely serve their original purposes: which was to honor achievements that would otherwise be overlooked in the annual awards-focus on prestige drama and movie stars, respectively. It says a lot about the Comedy Acting categories for example that you can only

10 Actresses Who Desperately Need To Go Nude

Alright, so let’s dispel any controversy from the outset – do these actresses need to go nude? Absolutely not; there are thousands of talented actresses who’ve gone far in Hollywood without ever having to disrobe, but hey, this is the Internet, we’re all perverted, these women are all hot, and we’d quite like to see them without any clothes on – get it?

Nevertheless, a nude scene never hurt anybody’s career – except perhaps for Elizabeth Berkley in Showgirls – and it’s interesting to note that the overwhelming majority of the Best Actress Oscar winners of the last 25 years have performed a nude scene at some point in their Hollywood tenure.

Perhaps this is more a sign of Hollywood’s cynicism than any direct correlation between the two, but nudity is rarely detrimental to anyone’s career, male or female. Here are 10 actresses who we want to see get nude,

Flash Friday: Scarlett Johansson Does It All & Buys A Zoo, Too

Stage and screen superstar Scarlett Johansson is known to most theatre fans for her tremendous work in the recent revival of Arthur Millers A View From The Bridge, directed by Gregory Mosher and co-starring fellow InDepth InterView participant Liev Schreiber, for which she rightly took home the 2010 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress In A Play. Before then, Johansson was perhaps best known for her leading role in Sofia Coppolas moving contemporary drama Lost In Translation, co-starring Bill Murray, as well as for her featured roles in some big-budget Hollywood films with top-tier talent and directors - The Prestige with Christopher Nolan co-starring Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman, The Blach Dahlia with Brian DePalma, The Island with Michael Bay co-starring Ewan MacGregor, The Spirit with Frank Miller as well as a string of quirky and unique independent films such as Ghost World, A Love Song For Bobby Long and her

Three Burning Questions About Scarlett Johansson’s (Alleged) Nude Picture Scandal

It’s been about eight hours or so since nude photos of a young woman that bares a striking resemblance to Scarlett Johansson were leaked online. After seeing the seismic force with which these photos hit the Internet, it’s a wonder that all of the underground tubes through which information flows to the World Wide Web—the Internet is powered by underground tubes, right???—didn’t rupture and burst. Thankfully, Al Gore had the foresight to envision the necessary precautions that needed to be undertaken in case of exactly this sort of incident back when he invented the Information Superhighway™.

We here at TheFABLife have been debating not only the authenticity of these (alleged) ScarJo nudes all day, but also the rationale for them. To that end, here are three burning questions that we demand President Obama answer in a televised address by nightfall (all of which assume that

'Mad Men': Nurse Phoebe's Disappearing Accent

'Mad Men': Nurse Phoebe's Disappearing Accent
Last night’s episode of Mad Men connected the dots between the globalization of the automobile industry and the sexual awakening of preteen girls. It was awesome — check out Karen Valby’s full recap here. There was, however, one part of the episode that I couldn’t handle. We saw the reappearance of Phoebe, the comely nurse neighbor played by Nora Zehetner. Since Phoebe’s first appearance in the Christmas episode, Zehetner seems to have suddenly developed a bad case of “Y’allitis,” a rare disorder which causes terrible Southern accents to emerge from actors’ mouths. Y’allitis isn’t

Elegantly Bubbly

It should not be surprising that a famous Hollywood star is the face of a luxury brand. They seem to have their face on everything these days, from watches to designer clothing and even European cars. But when quintessential champagne house, Möet & Chandon, for the first time in champagne marketing history elects to use a famous actress to be their ambassador, and that celebrity happens to be Scarlett Johansson, it is a beautiful amalgamation befitting the hype.   Since her springboard to worldwide fame with Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation, Johansson has been delighting audiences with a range of roles encompassing gritty dramas, period features and mainstream romantic comedies (A Love Song For Bobby Long, The Other Boleyn Girl, He's Just Not That Into You), and in recent times has been the muse of Woody Allen (Match Point, Scoop, Vicky Cristina Barcelona).

The Spirit

It has not escaped the notice of geek-Americans that, visually and thematically, Frank Miller’s big-screen adaptation of Will Eisner’s pioneering comic The Spirit is essentially a sequel to Sin City, the wildly influential green-screen epic adaptation of Miller’s comics series he co-directed with Robert Rodriguez.Infinitely more alarming: in terms of humor, The Spirit feels like the follow-up to Batman & Robin no one wanted. Main bad guy Samuel L. Jackson even spends much of the film indulging in egg-themed wordplay that almost inspires nostalgia for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s avalanche of ice puns in the unloved third Batman sequel. A Love Song For Bobby Long’s Gabriel “Who?” Macht plays the title character, a rookie lawman who is killed and later resurrected by a mad scientist/supervillain with a God complex, played with scenery-chewing abandon by Jackson. As The Spirit, the hopelessly bland Macht is literally a stiff in a suit,

Allen and Travolta Obsessed by Johansson's Love Life
Woody Allen and John Travolta are taking an unhealthy interest in Scarlett Johansson's love life, according to the actress. The 21-year-old beauty, who stars in Allen's new movie Match Point and appeared in A Love Song for Bobby Long alongside Travolta, is dumbfounded by their obsession, and puts it down to their fatherly feelings towards her. She says, "You know what cracks me up? He (Allen) is fascinated with my love life. And John Travolta's even worse than Woody, he wants to know everything."

Security Fears Surround Travolta Premiere

  • WENN
John Travolta's latest movie premiere has been hit with security problems over fears the actor and his co-star Scarlett Johansson could be targets of crazed fans posing as press. Travolta became the subject of a hoax death threat when he attended the Hollywood Film Festival gala in October and his handlers aren't taking any chances as he launches his new film A Love Song For Bobby Long tonight. A spokeswoman says, "We've had to slash back the red carpet because of security fears." As a result, many press crews who had been given permission to cover the premiere have now been told they won't be able to attend.

Travolta Learns More About Threats Against Him
John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston have found out that the threats issued to them before an October event have been doled out to various stars every year. Burly bodyguards surrounded the Hollywood couple as Travolta was honored at the recent Hollywood Film Festival. At the premiere for his new film A Love Song for Bobby Long, two bomb-sniffing dogs checked guests - who were also required to remove all pens from their pockets at the Hollywood Athletic Club after-party. But weeks later, Travolta learned the threats weren't as serious as he'd initially feared. He says, "That was a threat that, unfortunately, every year happens at the event. I didn't know that at the time. I wish I'd known it - I wouldn't have worried so much. Everything's fine."
