Scarlett Johansson’s Rep: ‘My Client is the Victim of Angles and Weird Shirts’

April 13th, 2011 // 105 Comments

Because I’m brave enough to not know the difference between pregnancy and a beer gut, I speculated yesterday that Scarlett Johansson might be pregnant with Sean Penn‘s child after seeing photos of them jogging together. Turns out the person Scarlett pays to make her look good took particular exception with that and ran to People with the following excuses:

But a rep for Johansson warns not to jump to conclusions, and reveals a few common missteps that make up the anatomy of a pregnancy rumor:
Step 1: Catch the celebrity at an awkward angle
“She’s outside running and it’s simply the placement of her shirt that is misleading,” her rep, Marcel Pariseau, tells PEOPLE of Johansson.
Step 2: Single out the one photo that portrays her as a mere mortal
“She was followed and photographed for over 20 minutes and I’m sure there are other photos in the series that show and prove that she is not pregnant,” the rep points out.
Step 3: Set the record straight
“Scarlett is not pregnant,” Pariseau says, adding for good measure. “She’s been training for The Avengers for over four months and is in the best shape of her life.”

Two things:

1. I went ahead and reposted the eight images – uncropped – from the agency I purchased them from (There were more, but I’m a cheap bastard.) and there’s definitely more than just “one photo” where people went, “Hmm. I wonder where she’s registered…”
2. “The placement of her shirt is misleading.” She wears shirts on her ass?

But in all seriousness, instead of saying, “My client is a world-class athlete victimized by the weird shirt and bad angles conglomerate,” it would’ve been much simpler if Scarlett’s rep just said, “Okay, she put on a couple pounds and is obviously trying to work them off.” Not only would this make me look like the asshole I am, but oh I dunno, it’s the truth. Then again, we’re not really in the truth business here, are we? Oh, no, we’re in the business of stealing ROBIN WRIGHT’S CHILDREN AND MAKING THEM SCARLETT’S OWN! Isn’t that right, Us Weekly?

Relocating from her temporary digs at a West Hollywood hotel, the recently divorced 26-year-old “has essentially moved in over the last few weeks,” the source says. And now that the actress and Penn, 50, share the same roof after months of furtive sightings at hotspots in Hollywood, Mexico and beyond, “they just stay home” whenever they can.
Among their fave homebody activities? Eating in and hanging out with Penn’s kids with ex-wife Robin Wright, who are mere years younger than Johansson: daughter Dylan, 20, and son Hopper, 17.

Tell me not to wildly speculate, will you? I’ll speculate all over this town! *slams briefcase shut* I rest my case, your honor.

    Scarlett…keep running!

    Uh — why aren’t we talking about how frikkin’ bad Penn looks?????!!! He looks like he is going to pass out any sec, like he can’t keep up with her. She might have a bit of a gut but he looks way worse. Just goes to show how sexist this country remains…he is the ugly one in the photos and all you do is take shots are her. Equal Time!!!

    In addition to be a self-proclaimed whore who gets tested for AIDs every six months, a way overrated actress and a duck face, she is the chubs. You can see the cellulite through her leggings. She is welcome to Sean Penn – a crazy, gross old man who boozes it up and smokes like a chimney. Smokers who run, I don’t get it. He probably snorts speed first.

    • She’s not a whore. What the hell are you talking about? Getting an AIDS test every 6 months is the responsible thing for a sexually active person to do.

  16. Tiff

    Isn’t it ironic that her caps says ‘Kodak’ when clearly, this wasn’t one of those moments.

  17. Tiff

    Nevermind about the pregnancy rumours- it looks like she just ate a small child.

    Jogging to IHOP is kind of counterproductive.

    Does this shirt make my ass look fat you guys?

    No big deal for Scar to lose 10 lb (plus she’s kind of short so anything she puts on is very visible). It’ll take her a month or two but who cares. This is how most women look if they eat more than once a day.

    You’re kidding me, right! Scarlett is beautiful and okay, so she’s not a size 0 or 2. SHE’S LIKE 90% OF AMERICAN WOMEN. Instead of sitting around shoving pizza in her mouth, she’s out exercising with her man. I think she’s fabulous, gorgeous, an most women would die to look like her.

    Girl’s chunkin’. That’s all right. Nice to see an actress who can enjoy food. Next movie deal she’ll slim right back up.

    This makes me sooo happy!! Look at that cellulite. It is so refreshing to see the “goddesses” looking like regular chicks, like me. Y’know she could be on her period and just bloated. Sean Penn is no rail, either. I’m sure they have been throwing back cervezas and eating some primo Cali-Mex food. Good for them.

    She can easily lose the weight, the problem is to keep it off. She will have to change her diet and keep a steady excersise regimen.
    She doesn’t look bad, just not like herself. Guess this is what they mean when they say someone has let themselves go.
