Scarlett Johansson Passes Woody Allen Muse Torch to Freida Pinto at Dolce & Gabbana Show

Scarlett Johansson, a longtime Woody Allen muse, passed the torch to newly-minted Hollywood darling Freida Pinto via the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week.

Last week, the Slumdog Millionaire beauty signed on to star in Allen's yet untitled project along with Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Anthony Hopkins.

Eva Mendes on Barack Obama’s Inaguration: ‘It’s the Hardest Party to Get Into’

She may have the beauty and the fame to get into any party, but when it comes to President-Elect Barack Obama's inauguration festivities, actress Eva Mendes got the boot! “Hottest ticket party in town… I thought I had some pull – I usually do, and I’ve been shut down,” The Spirit star told Access Hollywood. “It’s the hardest party to get into.” Although Mendes says she's "still working on" getting in, she understands: "They don’t want to make [it] a celebrity studded event because I understand this in an extremely crucial time in our history and in our world right now."

Ga Ga: Comic Book-Turned-Film The Spirit Trailer With Eva Mendes And Samuel Jackson

The 1940 comic book The Spirit has been made into a film that promises to give Iron Man a run for its superhero money. Directed by Frank Miller and featuring the stunning visual technology utilized in his previous films 300 and Sin City, Spirit stars Samuel Jackson as villain The Octopus and Eva Mendes, Paz Vega and Scarlett Johansson among the many femme fatales. Conspicuosly missing, and thankfully so, is the Spirit's sidekick Ebony White, a racist African American stereotype. The Spirit opens in theatres on Christmas day.

Latinas Eva Mendes & Penelope Cruz Cover Coveted September Fashion Mags

Covering the coveted September issues of Fall fashion magazines isn't an easy feat for anyone who isn't white. That's why Blindie was shocked to see, not one, but two Latinas amongst the lily-white covers (from Keira Knightley on Vogue to Carrie Underwood on Allure) on the newsstands. Marie Claire's cover girl Mendes, who has just debuted her steamy ads for Calvin Klein, is starring in her first female-driven film, The Women, with Annette Bening. “She reminds me of one of those women back in the ‘40s and ‘50s," Mendes says. "She’s a broad, and I want to be a broad. I mean, she’s like Ava Gardner or Bette Davis or Katharine Hepburn. Those women were broads. They said it like it was.” As for Glamour cover girl Cruz, she's starring in two films, including Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Elegy with Ben Kingsley, who tells Glamour, "She comprehends the struggle of the female soul in our confused society. She doesn't have to guess what the vital issues are--she knows."

Color on the Cover: Eva Mendes’ Hot Interview

The recently-rehabbed actress Eva Mendes appears on the August cover of Interview magazine. Mendes, who is also the newest face for Calvin Klein Underwear, not only looks stunning in her steamy covershot, she also talks about some serious issues in the pop culture magazine. Mendes, who made history with Will Smith in 2005's Hitch, says of racism in Hollywood:

“What makes it frustrating is when a director or a studio head doesn’t see me for the same part that they’ll see, let’s say, Drew Barrymore for. Drew’s a great friend of mine. But it’s like, ‘No, we want more of an American type of girl.’ And it’s like, America has opened up. I’m an American girl, born and raised.”
And being Latina in Hollywood isn't necessarily easy, but she doesn't call it a challenge:
“I would never call it a challenge. I think being a woman in Hollywood is a big enough challenge. It really is, man. I don’t want to be one of those people who complain. But the lack of roles out there–it’s unbelievable. I read a lot of scripts....But there are many times that being Latin has actually helped me, being a Cuban-American has helped me.”
