I also think she’s in a period right now where she’s killing it. I saw “Don Jon,” I saw “Under the Skin,”—it’s really beautiful, strange, and creepy but she’s incredible in it…She’s always been amazing, she has this incredible presence but she kicked it up into another gear. - Spike Jonze on Scarlett Johansson
“But it was clear from driving by their homes that the kids weren’t as rich as everyone seemed to want to believe. Everybody wanted them to be like kids on Gossip Girl, but it seemed they lived more like typical teenagers. They were better off than many kids, at the dawning of the Great Recession; but they didn’t appear to be wealthy in the way of the new elite class that had been engaging in the deregulated accumulation of capital for the better part of three decades.
