Harvard University students and locals gathered in the freezing cold winter weather for the annual parade to honor Scarlett Johansson on Friday. Even though some of the troupe’s members in the parade were inappropriately dressed for the freezing conditions they all braved the cold in the good spirit of the occasion. Not even this being the coldest of conditions kept Scarlett Johansson way.
She told reporters she admired the actors for going on with the show. “I wouldn’t be caught dead in a bra and panties on a day like this,” she said. “They were really suffering for their craft.” Johansson was named Woman of the Year for her “lasting and impressive achievement to the world of entertainment”.
The troupes chose actor Ben Stiller as their pick for Man of the Year. Stiller will be honored next week. The amateur acting group is America’s oldest. It has for 56 years honored and embarrassed such stars as Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, Katharine Hepburn, Robert DeNiro, Dustin Hoffman, and Alan Alda. The honorees are given a golden pudding pot to mark a tradition that dates to 1795 when 21 Harvard students pledged that each member of their new club would, in alphabetical order, provide, “a pot of hasty pudding” for every meeting.
A red- faced Johansson gave nothing away when asked about her rumored relationship with Justin Timberlake. She left much to the questioner’s imagination, but did manage to confirm her having co-starred with the “sexyback” singer in his steamy and fairly hot music video for a track from FutureSex/LoveSounds:Music.
While Johansson was in Boston, her rumored guypal Justin Timberlake was spotted on Friday night at the Whiskey Bar in the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood with his ex Cameron Diaz reunited reports People Magazine. Timberlake was at the hotel’s bar in the company of director Martin Scorsese and eight others at a table when Diaz arrived at 1am.
Diaz, who never joined their table, did not hesitate to notice her ex- boyfriend. An observer, said, “She just showed up and Justin got up and started talking to her. They were being very discreet. “They weren’t kissing or holding hands or anything, but they were being very friendly,” the observer adds. Diaz and Timberlake split last month after what was said to be “a very public” blow-up at the Golden Globes.
Johansson and Timberlake were spotted at the Super Bowl in Miami earlier this month. While there is still no confirmation as to whether or not the pair is an item wild speculation prevails.
