I am sure everyone will be surprised by this but apparently Scarlett Johansson has no interest in playing porn-star Jenna Jameson in the big screen adaptation of her autobiography, How to Make Love Like a Porn-star. I personally am quite shocked by this. The movie is to be titled Heartbreaker and will detail Jenna’s rise to fame in the adult film industry.
Jameson says, after having seen Lost in Translation:
“I remember thinking to myself, this girl has such a sexuality without even really trying to be sexy. I was like, ‘This girl could play me.'”
Correct me if I am wrong, but who would want to play her? And why is a movie even being made about her?
Has the creative well in Hollywood dried up that much that we are now reduced to making biopics of porn-stars? To be perfectly honest, I am impressed by Johansson’s response given through her representative:
“Scarlett has never seen a script nor been approached about this project. She also has no interest in playing this role.”
Good for Scarlett. I am sure that her taking the role would bring instant media attention and loads of free publicity. I am also betting that there are plenty of actresses out there who would expound on what a great person Jenna is and how much of a role model she is for the modern successful woman. Kudos to Scarlett for not showing any interest in the role.
