Last week, Scarlett Johansson got to put her hands in the cement at Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Does she deserve it?
I say absolutely!
Scarlett is a very talented Method actress. There is a simplicity about her work. She makes it look effortless and easy, but actually she is doing very complicated work underneath it all.
The first time I saw her work was in the film Lost in Translation directed by Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola who directed The Godfather. Francis liked to work with Method actors, and this way of working certainly rubbed off on Sofia. She beautifully directed Scarlett in a very understated but utterly truthful performance.
For that one performance alone, I would put her on the Walk of Fame.
Well done Scarlett!
