What a Car!

Scarlett Johannson

Anthony Lane
drools all over Scarlett Johannson in the New Yorker:

There is no getting away from Johansson, and that is how her uncountable fans, female as well as male, would like it to be forever. They do not want to get away. Even if they can’t afford to open a bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne, as endorsed by Johansson in 2011, they can still enjoy her likeness on the shell case of their iPhone 5, and come a little closer to her with a deep sniff of The One, the Dolce & Gabbana fragrance that the actress, as an official face of the fashion house, is paid to advertise. Ideally, we are informed, it should be “used to adorn pulse points or misted into the air.” She made a short film, in luscious black-and-white, as a means of encouraging us to buy the perfume. The director was Martin Scorsese, who, presumably, was attracted by its top notes of zesty bergamot and mandarin. And the co-star was Matthew McConaughey, one of Johansson’s few rivals, right now, in the stakes of global celebrity. As I said, exciting times; and she doesn’t even turn thirty until November.

Scorcese directing a perfume commercial?!

I certainly had to see that.

Good commercial, but I thought the show was stolen from Scarlett Johannson by that old Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider. That automobile is somewhere in the neighborhood of fifty to sixty years old, being manufactured between 1954 and 1965, and it is still cooler than 90% of the cars on the road today.

Scorcese’s commercial didn’t make me want to buy any perfume or date Scarlett Johannson, but it did make me regret that I only once owned a first series 1966 Duetto Spider, and never the more poetic earlier Giulietta Spider.

I wonder if the Giulietta’s rusted as fast or had Weber carburetors as impossible to tune properly for mere mortals. But what a car!

There was a time when I really liked cars but anymore they are simply a way to get from one place to another. For the last 35 years I have made a habit of buying a cheap car new and driving it for 14 years or so until I buy another. So I don’t really want to drive Alfa Romeo BUT I would really like to drive Ms Johannson.

There was a time when I really liked cars, too. That was when cars had real personality. I still like the cars from that time, but not the new stuff. No character at all. There is a guy around my part of the country that drives an AC Cobra once in a while. Every time I see it, I drool.

re: Scarlett Johannson

I don’t think she will age well. Her features are too exaggerated and stark. Because of those qualities she appeared to be a caricature in the movie The Prestige.

Time will tell of course.

Hard to say. I lived in Europe for a number of years a very long time ago. The young girls and women of Eastern Europe can be some of the most beautiful women in the world. I mean, leave your wife, quit your job and run away with them beautiful. But their mothers and grandmothers would stop a parade. In my humble opinion that lack of aging well is not inevitable. It’s a combination of genetics, lifestyle and attitude. I’m guessing if they choose to watch their figure and take care of themselves they will age well.
