Sexed up Scarlett?


I may be swallowing my words on this one, but I'm not sure that I see Scarlett Johansson doing this. Okay, I totally understand that Jenna Jameson is the porn star who breeched the crossover market, but I'm not sure that her life story is more than a made-for-TV movie. And I totally see, after the above pic, Scarlett Johansson in a much naughtier light, but still, do I see these two together?

Stranger things have happened, like the fact that OJ Simpson almost had a book deal confessing his murder, so I can't say I'd be completely surprised, but yeah, I think I'd be pretty shocked. And I don't think that Johannson is necessarily right for the role, but that's why I'm not a casting agent. And again I ask myself why do I care enough to write about this?

I really did enjoy Jameson's book, although that's totally old news, and haven't seen my copy since I lent it to someone over a year ago (note to self: find that copy) but I'm not so sure I'd pay to see it on the big screen. Unless they add something that doesn't resemble the real life of a lot of the porn stars I know. But then again, I might just be to close to the industry to actually enjoy the "made-for-TV" version.

Okay, then I stepped away from writing this for a second, and had a different thought about the whole Jenna/Scarlett thing, and then I started thinking that I'm thinking too much about all of this anyway. But my thought is this: why not aim high? I think that's always been my problem, is I don't believe I aim high enough. I know I'm the only one to blame for that, but really, I kind of blame other people too, because I was never encouraged to aim high, or to be the best I could be, except now I encourage myself. Before doing this (and meeting a fabulous partner doesn't hurt) I was always encouraged to be average, which is how a lot of people always saw me, and how a lot of other people feel too. And fine, maybe I'm average, but I don't think so, and if I don't think so, and I don't act like I am, then how can I be?

It's like that saying "fake it, til you make it" which really is a good saying if you believe it to be true. Because everybody has to fake something sometimes, and then if you fake it long enough, you aren't faking it anymore (well, that might not work with orgasms) but still, that's my point. And so, yeah, I don't see the connection between the two, and I don't see the plot of the film just yet (although I'm not denying that Jameson's had an interesting life) but what I do see is a woman who's had a vision and has had the guts to actually live out that dream, and to do it her way, well, once she got off the drugs and all that, and so I'll just bite my tongue when the time comes, and hope that I don't bite so hard that I bleed.
