Scarlett Johansson was supposed to make her directorial debut in New York, I Love You, a film of intertwined vignettes about love, but the scene she shot isn’t going to make it into the film. Apparently it had something to do with it being absolutely terrible.
And an insider said her episode, shot in black and white and starring Kevin Bacon, was ‘unwatchable.’ “It was really bad, so it was cut,” said a source.
“The story did not specifically involve an interpersonal relationship, and it was conceptualised to be filmed in black and white,” he explained. “Both of which were extreme departures from the other films.” (Source)
I guess now Scarlett can now add “failed director” to her resume along with “failed musician.” When is this chick going to learn that she sucks at literally everything besides being a mediocre actress? And like I always say, once you’ve found something that you’re really, truly mediocre at, you should focus all your energies on being as mediocre as you can at that one thing. See? I could have totally been a motivational speaker. If only I wasn’t already so darn mediocre at gossip blogging.
