On the rocks alert:
Scarlett's side of the story

Publications: National Enquirer, OK!
Date: 24 January 2011

In an odd coincidence, Scarlett Johansson's side of the big break-up of the season is on the covers of both the nicest supermarket rag and the meanest. If you don't know which is which, the difference in the headlines should give a big hint.
  • OK!: How Scarlett found out about Sandra
  • National Enquirer: Scarlett to Sandra: "You're a Man Hungry Tramp!"
    Battle over Ryan gets ugly!
Did you notice the subtle difference, gentle reader? Yes, I thought you might.

And a little bit of editorializing on my part. Since I took out The Big Ugly Stick on Victoria Beckham yesterday, let me say something nice about Scarlett Johansson today, bringing out the gentlemanly aspect of my Dirty Old Manhood. She is not the prettiest actress working today. Feature for feature, she isn't Halle Berry or Angelina Jolie, to give two examples. But when the camera is on her and she is told to "act sexy", nobody in Hollywood can keep up with her.
