Following up on our Tom Waits Talks ScarJo post (we’re so comprehensive!), Vogue sits with the “criminally sexy” (per Woody Allen, sounding pervy without even trying) actress in a fawning piece discussing her body, her lips, her friendship with Natalie Portman, and her highly anticipated (anyone?) turn as Tom Waits cover girl:

Some fans may have been surprised by her first appearance on Saturday Night Live in 2006, when she sang in several skits and more than held her own. Not surprisingly, her voice is a velvety alto. Less predictably, her first CD is a collection of her favorite Tom Waits songs. I assumed her parents might have introduced her to his music?Waits has had a cult following since the seventies?but she said that musician friends in high school brought his music to her attention, and she remains an avid fan. She had originally planned to record an album of standards, then changed her mind after adding “I Never Talk to Strangers” to her repertoire. “I’ve always considered Tom Waits to be kind of a composer of modern standards; he has a lot of beautiful ballads and really heartbreaking songs.”

Reasons for reprinting that quote: Firstly, PLEASE send us MP3 if you find it! Lastly…

  1. If she wasn’t so hot, I would TOTALLY hate her for this. But, because she IS so hot, I just kind of hate her for this.

    See, that’s the difference between you and me. I resent the album MORE because she’s so hot.

    My critical faculties say to my libido, “Get the hell out of here! You’re messing everything up!”

    I think the fact that she is so unbelievably hot and she might to possibly possess a decent knowledge of tunes means that I’d have to be dug out of her.

  5. Johannson better be careful in her friendship with Portman, or risk catching the shitty acting disease.

  6. Think she’ll cover “In The Coliseum?”

    She does have the shitty acting disease. Are you kidding me? She is hot, but the girl is no great actress.

    I look forward to it. My penis tells me so.

    No, actually, I have one of her songs (“Summertime”) and it’s not bad at all. She has a good voice. It just remains to be seen whether or not she can hold my attention in a non-visual medium.

    that photo is way sexier than any in the esquire issue. that was such a disappointment… I’m not sure if her singing Tom Waits songs is going to be a good addition to my occasional fantasies of me and ScarJo tho’

    Woody did a fantastic job of lens-fucked the hell out of her in “Matchpoint” – she’s so sexy in that film that it almost hurts to watch.

    Which works perfectly within the context, actually.

    …and there goes my grasp of English. I mean to say, “lens-fucking”. Fuck-ING. Thank you.

    Nice body, but the pig nose ruins it all.

    This girl is worthless…Why judge a book by its cover? Judge the book…anyone see “The Island” or any of her other shitty movies?
