Scarlett Strikes Back at Us Weekly Cover

This week's Us Weekly makes some serious plastic surgery claims about some big Hollywood stars. Inside, real-life Dr. 90210s talk about how many actresses are going under the knife. Surgeon Raj Kanodia who worked on Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, and Ashlee Simpson (the first two saying it was for medical reasons) estimates that 60 percent of Hollywood women have done it. The story isn't sitting so well with the magazine's primary cover girl, however, and Scarlett Johansson is suing the magazine. Her rep issued this statement to OK!:

"US Weekly's cover story regarding Scarlett Johansson and its clear implication that she has had plastic or cosmetic surgery on her nose is an outrageous and defamatory fabrication lacking any conceivable basis or proof, despite vehement denials by Ms. Johansson prior to publication...Not surprisingly, US magazine cannot provide the dates when she supposedly had this surgery, who performed the surgery, or what was supposedly done — all because there simply is no truth to the story. The publication made a pathetic attempt to validate its story by using two cover photos of Scarlett that were taken years apart with obviously different make-up and lighting, and then relying on an "expert’s opinion” (based solely on looking at the two photos) on what "might" have been done. It wasn't."

Scarlett herself even assured OK! that she's never been dishonest about her natural appearance. While I'm sure that so much of Hollywood has secretly (or not) gone under the knife, it's a pretty bold way to name names. Scarlett has never been the first name to come to mind when it comes to surgery and it's understandable that she's angry, but doth the lady protest too much? What do you think, has most of Hollywood had plastic surgery?

If you see Scarlett in the Horse Whisperer, which I think was her first movie, she looks exactly the same, just older. They should put those two pics side by side. The one this magazine used as the "Before" shot looks totally touched up. Here is a pic from when she was young http://www.mtv.com/movies/photos/j/johansson_scarlett/rewind_060131/1997.jpg and here are more recent pics: http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1522763/20060130/story.jhtml and more at IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0424060/photogallery

Scarlett barely looks any different, except she looks older.

Good for her! I'm sure all of the people saying she is whining about something not important would sue if their faces were on the cover of a magazine being accused of doing something you didn't do

Why waste printing up an issue about something that we ALREADY know. Celebrities do what they do in order to be seen as physically perfect, to be liked more so they can be paid more, and they slice and dice themselves in order to personally have better self esteem. That's sad but so true. And what's even sadder is when young people male and female, honestly think that these are the perfect people to look up too just because of the way they physically look. And I agree....all the operations and treatments in the world still CANNOT give them talent. If they are bad at what they do then they will continue to be bad at it, until they hire the right coach to teach them how to appropriately act, sing, model, or perform anything on film or stage.

<b><i>Please.</b></i> The people who put those two pictures of Scarlett on the cover must be men. Any woman who wears makeup knows that it's easy to create a bridge on your nose with a simple concealer stick and bronzer. I have the same type of nose without a very defined bridge. If someone shoots me like at night head on with a full flash, my nose will look like it's melting into my face. I'm all for calling out people who say "oh I was born this beautiful" because it gives young girls especially false ideas about beauty and what is "normal." But seriously, creating a story to sell magazines is really cheap.

I used to think angie hadnt had anything done but I was looking at Goodplasticsurgery.com the other day and they had two pictures side by side and it does kinda look like she might. But it could be makeup, lighting...growing into features. But her nose and her lips both look smaller. (yes, they claim she had a lower lip REDUCTION, can you believe that?! Ill take some)
missmegs825 missmegs825 8 years
Hmm...hard to tell w/ ScarJo. Could just be a result of age. If you put a picture of me now next to one taken 10 years ago people would say I had plastic surgery too. What do you guys think about Angelina? I cant tell if she's had it or not...

when u're in hollywood people are gonna say things to put you down..i don't think she needed to go the distance and sue..but good for her for taking action..i'm sure it'll save the A listers from a lot of grief after this.

If she sues them and wins, they (and other tabloids) will think twice about what they print about her. That's an absolute fact and she SHOULD sue. Her nose looks exactly the same, with the exception of some contouring make-up in the photo (which doesn't even make much difference). I can do the same with my own make-up... and I'm no pro! Also, women lose fat in their faces as they get into their twenties. Practically everyone's face looks more sculpted in the 20s... until the skin starts to sag.

I agree that she has every right to be angry. Why not? They're lying about her. She's not the type of person that courts tabloid publicity, like Brittany. And she obviously has not had surgery. Those pictures were taken years apart. And in the first she looks like maybe she weighed 10 more pounds. I notice that when I loose weight, my nose looks a little smaller. Maybe I'm crazy.

I do think that the majority of Hollywood has had some type of work done to themselves. Why hide it? If you were unhappy with the flaw in the first place and you spent all that money to fix it, wouldn't you want someone to know?

what did wonky have done? her eyes looked like droppy, sh*t bags before and they look like that now....her nose is a beak-still...so i am curious...but not enough to purchase the mag...if i were going under the knife, i'd get liposuction on my whole body (to lose a mrer 20 pounds more)...i may be called a lazy f*** for such nonsense but whatever

I understand why Scarlett would get so defensive about an issue such as this, though. She tries to be as natural as possible and as true to herself as possible, and it's understandable she'd defend herself when someone says otherwise. And I do somewhat understand the obsession with celebrities and plastic surgery. I'd like someone in Hollywood more if that person's had no plastic surgery yet remains beautiful, even if not flawlessly. I do care whether someone's had something done or not. Except some plastic surgery, such as when someone's had a baby. And here's where my little rant ends.

I"m really not a huge fan of SJ (see nanny diaries), but she just looks older and like she has a better makeup job in the later pic. She looks fantastic, and if I looked like that and it were natural in a time when everyone is getting surgery to fix their deviated septum, I would definitely sue. And that deviated septum surgery sounds painful. :(

"What do you think, has most of Hollywood had plastic surgery?"Probably, but seriously,....... WHO CARES??She's going to all of this trouble to prove that she is a "natural beauty", but will she be as vocal in a few years when she does actually go under the knife?? Probably not. And again, who cares??

This is ridiculous. Scarlett looks exactly the same as the older picture. You'd think if she actually had a nose job she would have norrowed her wide tip. But its the same! They only thing that is different is the bridge a slightly more narrow, which can easily be attributed to A) growing into her features or B)Makeup
