"It's lovely to be compared to somebody as sort of effervescent and charming and fragile and I think kind of an underrated actor, really… you know, beautiful and everything. But it's never been one for me."

- Scarlett Johansson to USA Today about being compared to Marilyn Monroe

    Her last sentence totally makes me have NO idea what she is talking about. MM (love Her) but one of the most over hyped over rated actresses. The best answer is "that every blonde, even the tiny Michelle Williams, that looks nothing like her, is compared to her.



  2. 2

    Get over yourself. I'm so over her. WAY overrated.



  3. 3

    Re: ThIsIsFaLSe – Very true. And all I see when I see clips from that movie with Michelle in it is Michelle, which imo is quite a problem. She just doesn't look like 'Marilyn' .



  4. 4

    marilyn looks definitely like britney here!



  5. 5

    who's comparing scarlett to marilyn. agree with those who think marilyn wasn't that great of an actress. untimely deaths somehow tend to inflate a person's talent.



  6. 6

    whoever compared this untalented skank to marilyn, is a delusional fool. all these young women trying to take up marilyn's robe are fools and idiots



  7. 7

    Is it me or her statement doesn` t make sense????



  8. 8

    Not sure why you use this as' quote of the day'. It is a horrible quote and does not even make sense. I really think perez is one of the stupidest bloggers ever.

    Re: raypearson – exactly! it seems like every young actress today compares herself to Marilyn. I don't even count LiLo who is delusional and actually thinks that she's Marilyn. I thought Scarlett doesn't even act anymore, at least I don't hear anything about her being actress…

    This comparison has never come to mind for me and I like Scarlett a lot! Her last sentence meaning the comparison has never been one for her. She's never made that comparison for herself. All these actors/actresses really don't want a comparison. They want to be "originals"…if possible.

    U.S.A. Today columnist stated "as Marilyn Monroe's heiress apparent for the comely comedienne crown." I find that whenever any newer, fleshy actress exudes a finite sexuality, some journalist trying to fill a column somewhere thinks it's an original thought and proceeds to compare them to Marilyn. There will only ever be one Marilyn. Johansson
    and Monroe's onscreen luminescence gap is pretty wide, imo.

    Re: stickrat – Couldn't agree more. MM gets the award for most overrated star to ever grace this planet.
