And the ex-games wage on!
Well, at least in our minds. While formerly wedded hotties Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds may play nice in La La Land, we've got no problem pitting their post-split sex appeal against one another and deciding which divorcee is truly "winning."
So what's Scarlett's latest attempt at out-swooning her ab-tastic ex-hubby?
A pouty cover of a classic Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot song.
But first, let's back up:
While Ry has long fit the big-screen super dude role, he took center stage as a single man with his Green Lantern gig. And the flick did pretty well. But it's Scarlett who takes the comic-book cake, ‘cause not only did her Iron Man movie earn more moolah, but she gets to cozy up to some of the hottest actors in town (hello, Chris Evans!) in The Avengers.
Then there's the A-list connection: Ya know, getting your rebound on with some serious Hollywood talent. Scarlett did her best to woo Sean Penn, but that went way south. Meanwhile, Ryan's getting some one-on-one time with America's Sweetheart, Sandra Bullock. Is it any competition?
And now it's back to the music at hand. While Ryan suited up and looked très sexy opposite Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for a Marks & Spencer's gig, Scarlett worked some poses alongside a re-recording of Gainsbourg's 1968 hit "Bonnie & Clyde."
And we're unimpressed, to say the least. Her poses were hot, sure, but her singing killed the mood for us.
It's a step above Lindsay Lohan's Marilyn Monroe impersonations, we'll give her that, but in this sitch, we say it's best Scarlett leaves the croonin'-while-writhin' to the original blonde centerfold. But hey, at least the champagne looked tasty?
Point: Ryan. And two against one makes him the winner.
So is this Scarlett's swan song,ultimately declaring Mr. Reynolds the true post-split victor, or are you feelin' her performance of the oldie tune?
