I’m Not Obsessed is reporting that Scarlett Johansson has been tapped to play Marilyn Monroe in the newest biopic based on the sex icon’s life My Week With Marilyn, based on a book of the same name by Colin Clark, and employee of Laurence Olivier. According to a newspaper columnist Baz Bamigboye, ScarJo is at the top of a wish list of young actresses being considered by director Simon Curtis and producer David Parftt to play the role including Kate Hudson, Amy Adams, and Michelle Williams.
Kate Hudson? Michelle Williams? Amy Adams? If they had included Lindsay Lohan in this list, I would know for sure that this is a joke. Those girls are all cute, but they don’t have that perfect, soft, sex appeal that Marilyn had. Scarlett, though I can see. I think she has a startling beauty, no matter what comes out of her brains, and she used to have curves for miles before she lost mostly breast weight for her Iron Man role. Hopefully she’ll eat a couple of slices of Hamburger Helper Pizza Burger drizzled with nacho cheese and washed down with a blended cheesecake and get back to normal. Really Scarlett, everyone misses your boobies. If you’re going to play Marilyn, you’ve got to bulk up, Lady.
