Johansson: No Cannes Do

Published on May 19, 2008 with No Comments

Scarlett Johansson snubbed the premiere of Woody Allen’s┬álatest movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona at the Cannes International Film Festival after movies bosses reportedly refused to cater to her diva demands.

The blonde beauty – who stars in the new movie alongside Penelope Cruz – was expected to grace the red carpet at the French festival on Saturday, but missed the prestigious premiere amid rumours movie bosses at the French arm of Warner Bros Films – the production’s distributors – reportedly denied her extravagant hospitality expectations.

According to the Daily Mail, the Lost In Translation star made a string of demands to ensure her appearance at the renowned festival – including a $8,000 a day make-up artist.

Reports also suggest Johansson was unwilling to stay at a luxurious central Cannes hotel with director Allen and co-star Penelope Cruz, preferring a suite at a hotel 30 miles away.

A source told the paper; “While Woody’s terribly fond of Scarlett, he was a little upset that she wasn’t being a team player.”

Johansson’s male-star, Spanish Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, also missed the movie’s Cannes premiere on Saturday, citing personal family reasons for his non-appearance.
