SCARLETT JOHANSSON: NUDE SCENES IN SPIKE JONZE’S HER

HOLLYWOOD – Actress, singer and actress Scarlett Johansson has often remarked on a willingness to disrobe if she felt that artistically a project called for nudity.

When she was offered the role of Samantha opposite Joaquin Phoenix in Spike Jonze‘s Her, she decided the time was right.
Spike Jonze described the actress’ commitment as ‘brave’ and ‘extraordinary’:

We’d talked about the role and I think she’d read the script. She came into the studio and the film was largely done. Her role was the last thing we needed. Anyway she came in and stripped off before I could say anything. I was frankly baffled, but we went ahead and ran through her dialogue. I thought she might get quite chilly, or at least confused as to why we weren’t filming her, but she’s a trooper and she just carried on recording the dialogue.   

Jonze believes that although Scarlett Johansson’s nudity won’t be visible it adds a definite frisson to the completed film. 

There’s an emotional fragility both to Scarlett and Samantha and so weirdly it worked. We were all spellbound and it was only after she’d left that we realized we all had cameras on our phones and we hadn’t used them. I asked Joaquin what he thought about it. But he hadn’t noticed anything strange.

Her will be released in December, 2013.

PETA ACCIDENTALLY/ON PURPOSE DROWN JOAQUIN PHOENIX

HOLLYWOOD – In a week of controversy for the animal rights group Peta, it was announced today that they had accidentally on purpose drowned Joaquin Phoenix.

The ‘accident’ happened when they were filming a new version of the advert banned from the Oscars telecast which they were hoping to use to launch a campaign to make people stop eating fish.


‘Many people who even call themselves vegetarians still eat tuna because it tastes good,’ said Peta spokesperson. ‘So we wanted to graphically bring home how horrible it is for fish to be killed and eaten.’
What exactly happened during the filming is still under investigation by the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office. One witness said that the director Sam Mendes, was exasperated by Joaquin Phoenix’s famous ‘method’ and suggested no one would believe the film unless the actor effectively drowned himself. Others claim that Peta believe any publicity is good publicity and that Phoenix ‘had served his purpose and was becoming an embarrassment.’
Dinkle Fancy said, ‘he had to go.’

THE MASTER: REVIEW

Johnny Cash meets Truman Capote, author of Battlefield Earth, who tries to get Cash to believe the kind of crap John Travolta and Tom Cruise believe. Unsuccessfully.


After the brilliance of Alien Versus Predator Paul Thomas Anderson returns to the screen with The Master.  Wacky Phoenix physicals it up with a Daniel Day-Lewis stoop, while Hoffers does the verbals. Magnificent lack of 3D and digital, with 70 mm camera work and genuinely beautiful visuals to a score by the guy from Coldplay or Radiohead. Idiots will be bored, but an ambitious and truly cinematic piece of work, as well as a vast improvement on The Three Musketeers.
NUDITY.

AFTER PHOENIX: NEW OSCAR AWARD ANNOUNCED

HOLLYWOOD – In response to comments made by actor Joaquin Phoenix, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has issued a press release announcing a new award to be presented exclusively at the 2013 edition of the ceremony. The Fuck You Joaquin Phoenix Award will be given to every single male actor who made a major motion picture appearance in a leading role, with one predictable exception.


Asked if the award wasn’t just a smidgen vindictive, Lionel Khrist the Academy spokesperson said, ‘Fuck yeah. He should learn the actors are there to walk around look pretty and keep their goddam cakeholes shut. Jesus, even when they win awards we try to hurry them the fuck up and get them off stage before they do something silly.’

The award is rumored to include a removable beard and sunglasses. Mr. Phoenix – who is no stranger to controversy following a stunt film I’m Still Here – made disparaging remarks for an award was being tipped to win for his role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. Speaking exclusively to Studio Exec about the new award, Phoenix, or the Baddie from Gladiator (as he prefers to be known), seemed confused, slurring his words and saying, ‘It makes no sense. Is this a joke?’
