Fabio was known for his long luscious locks and for being a hunk. Well, when filming “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” Scarlett Johansson thought Colin Firth looked like the famous model and dubbed him “Fabio” on set.
The name stuck, and every time she sees him, she greets him as Fabio. Turns out he hates the nickname as much as Scarlett hates her nickname Scarjo, which says a lot. At least they share a love for hating their nicknames.
Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to the acting podium as she has won over 23 awards and has been nominated 80 times for her work. This includes an Oscar, a Golden Globes, and a Tony for Best Feature Actress for her role in “A View from the Bridge.”
Pretty impressive for someone who is still young. We are excited to see her work in the future and see if she can win an Emmy and Grammy. If she could, that would put her in the upper echelon of Hollywood royalty.
A $43,000 Date
How much would you pay to go on a date with Scarlett Johansson? 100 dollars? Maybe 1,000 dollars? Well, during a charity event, a date with the actress was auctioned off, and the highest bidder paid $43,000 to go on a date with her.
Due to "scheduling conflicts" Scarjo never went on a date with the man, but the two were cordial about it, and the money still went to a good cause.
Crushing on the Hoff
David Hasselhoff has had many admirers. From “Bay Watch” to “Night Rider,” it’s easy to see how fans fell for him. Well, Scarlett Johansson was another person who fell under his spell. She admitted that she had a crush on the actor since she first saw him in “Bay Watch” and would love to date him one day.
That date never happened, but she did work with him on “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.” She was giddy as a teenager when she saw her name next to his in the credits and said it was pretty cool to work with one of her childhood crushes.
The Big Scarlett Apple
Similar to other famous celebrities like Jerry Seinfeld, Alicia Keys, and Barba Streisand, Scarlett Johansson also calls New York City her home. The actress was born and raised there and still has real estate in the area.
She recently sold her long-time penthouse and found a new 23-million-dollar home with her husband, Collin Jost. Looks like she won’t be leaving New York anytime soon and will continue to call the Big Apple her home.
