SCARLETT STANDS UP WOODY, PENELOPE CONSOLES HIM
Woody Allen was hugely disappointed when his muse Scarlett Johansson failed to show up for the sensational premier of his new movie “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” at the Cannes film festival. Scarlett’s costars Penelope Cruz and Rebecca Hall DID show up for the event and they were thrilled when the movie got a ten minute standing ovation. Scarlett’s reps had made some unfortunate demands that Warner Bros wouldn’t agree to. On top of all the other first class arrangements, Scarlett wanted to bring a ten thousand dollar a DAY personal makeup artist, and she didn’t want to stay in the convenient Cannes hotel with the rest of the cast. She wanted a private hotel thirty miles away that would have jeopardized their tight schedule. She did promise to make it up to Woody by promoting the movie in the US.
