"Really excited for you to hear today's episode with Scarlett Johansson. Before we get into the conversation, you might hear a little background noise, including our guest stars like my son gave and my dog turns out they were just as excited to talk to Scarlett as I was. All right, let's get into it. As an actor, you just get rejected all the time. But you build relationships with people, it's not a waste of time if you're making connections with people and learning and getting better. It's all time well spent.

"Started to feel like I had just felt like I didn't want to represent someone else's beauty ideal or beauty standard and I had finally kind of had the confidence to do something on my own. It just felt a little overwhelming because obviously it's a completely different industry to what I am accustomed to. I didn't want to license my name and go that route. I really wanted to start something that felt true to me and that I could kind of plant the seed and grow and so I went down many different avenues of just education and product development and discovering trying to understand is the consumer looking for what I'm looking for and obviously don't want to create something that's just for me. And while it was a very is a very noisy space. I thought that there was opportunity in that to create something that was really pared down and transparent. And sort of reject that rejected the idea of beauty secrets and which is really kind of what we're touching. We're talking about. And once I've kind of come to that realization, I knew I needed to find my person. You know, I have a film television and a film and TV production company here in New York and I have my partner in that and I couldn't do anything without him and because I do wear many hats and you know I knew that I would need somebody to be my person on this and so just put out a bunch of kind of feelers and with other people that I had met in the industry to see if anybody was curious to take a leap with me and when I met Kate, she was like sort of in between two worlds at the time but you know we just started dating a little bit and just got to know each other and it felt like what I was circling was yeah it was something that she just it resonated with her like she got it right away. She saw it and saw the potential in it. And we spent about like half a year kind of dating. And just like really getting to know one another and try and it could be any I have this thought like walking my dog the other day or you know I tried this product and it inspired this idea or I was having this conversation with my girlfriend and like this is what we both really care about. I don't know. All these kind of conversations that were really like discovery conversations and through that process, the outset was born. Yeah. That sounds like Sarah and I, honestly. Like I really love that. Sarah and I were paired together a lot. We were at separate publications competing publications actually. But we would always see each other. We hit it off and became friends. And then we were sending each other DMs, texts, emails, like, did you see that this is happening? Did you see that this was acquired? Oh, did you hear about this product launch? And then from there, we were like, why not create something together? We can just take these conversations public. So it kind of reminds me a little bit of our story as well. I love that. And also, you know, we built this, it really, the first time we met in person, it was just before everything explodes. It was March, you know, I know a lot of first time was actually in January. Oh, was it? Yeah. In person. No, no, no, oh, sorry. That's right. But when we had that lunch, we got lunch, yeah. Which was basically like two days before everything shut down. It was like, definitely the last meal I had at a restaurant in 2000, whatever. No, I remember my husband's birthday, and that was the last meal. I had ever had with anybody for like, you know, two years, 16 years, yeah. And then Kate and I had to get to do like we had to, you know, we just basically did a lot of FaceTime. And it was, I think, cathartic in a way, 'cause we both have kids and we were like, going through the school, like at home school, stuff, like all these humongous changes, and then there was in some way, it was almost like we were like in the creative rabbit hole together because of the circumstances, so. Came yeah. You're head bitch in charge. I just want to like take a minute to not get that needle pointed on a pillow. Is that okay? Your resume is incredible. I mean, you were at juicy couture at the height of juicy couture. You worked with Victoria's Secret beauty. I mean, you were really on the forefront on so many beauty and fashion trends. So I have to think to myself, if I were in your position, Scarlett Johansson wants to create a skin care line. Obviously the name is there, and you're like, oh my God, this is great, but I can't imagine you would partner with someone if they didn't know their shit. I was going to say too, like, at the time that you were having a conversation with Scarlett, we were working together and. Had a very successful situation previous to what you're doing now. Kirby's point for you to like, that was probably a really big decision for you to leave everything and join Scott. So why Scarlett? Why Scarlett? Well, yeah, I mean, it was very scarlet. Fine. There's only a thin wall separating us Kate. Just remember that. Part of me, I need to get my index cards. Line? Nope. Yeah, no, it was such a wild time because Sarah Sarah tan was very much in my life at this moment as well. So I had created a word of mouth product recommendations platform that was acquired by a very large media company. And when I got the call, do I want to meet Scarlett Johansson? I was like, I'm not kidding, like, in the thick of monster contracts and paperwork for this business to be acquired. And, you know, I was kind of like, it's not really a good time for me. I have this thing going on and it's going to be amazing. And I was kind of like, are you sure me? Did you mean to call somebody else? You know, I kind of had both that mixture of fear of, wait, really? Is this something that anybody thinks I can do? In addition to just kind of like the craziness of life going on and thinking like, oh, this might not be the time. And then I also, I passed on a major opportunity before creating my startup because my son was little, and I was like, I was like, it's just not a good time. And he was like, he was a baby baby, and I passed the spine and wound up being a monster success. And grianna, if the situation was different, I'm not sure I could have made it into the monster success it was. So no discount to the team that actually went on to build throwing shade. I was like, I need to watch my peas and cues over here. Yeah, so anyway, I'm saying I could, and maybe the story would have been written differently. But I think I learned from that experience is say yes. A bit more. It's never a great time to do anything. And but it's always the right time to be curious about new opportunities. And I was kind of like, I think the thing that really got me of why meet with Scarlett.

"We would love to welcome Scarlett Johansson and Kate foster langel to the podcast. Hello. Hello. I'm just a straight up fan of both of y'all. I haven't met either of you. Kate, you just have this lovely relationship with Sarah. I'm just like the fan girl in the back. Like sign my autograph. I'm podcast is going great for me. Yeah. Scarlett's like, wait a minute. What's happening here? No, we're really excited to have you both. We talk a lot about the celebrity beauty space. And I think this is going to be a really interesting conversation about, especially for you, Scarlett, why now and Kate for you? Why Scarlett? Why did this make sense? Maybe there will be some hard truths this episode. I don't have an answer to that one. No, this is going to be great. Because you guys are like, work wives like Kirby and I. We start off every episode with a question called what's on your face. Other than the outset products, because actually that's all I've been using for my skin care because I gotta test it all out. And I get a lot of compliments. Well, I've gone through a lot of different shampoos and stuff like that. It's not only on my face, but it is all my above my face. Well, you know what's so funny, so I was going through all these different shampoos and, you know, I was going all those expensive hair masks. Honestly, nothing was working, and I just kept feeling like I had this hair that was dry at the end and then my scalp would be really heavy and I, of course, like all of a sudden it's like, all right, girls, tell me what is everybody using? And you know what? I ended up going back to was a biological, like old school biological. Like the huge pump. I love it. I thought about that product. I used the shampoo and conditioner, and it smells like high school. And my hair looks it. So I'm just gonna keep using that until apparently you're supposed to change your hair and feel like your shampoo and conditioner every few months. I guess I didn't get that memo. So I don't know, as long as those giant bottles are gonna last me when I enjoy it. And then I guess I'll try something else. But I've been using biological. A tried and true. We love you so much. Tried and true. Tried and true. I also have been loving the I've been wearing like obviously I haven't really worn a lot of lipstick recently because got the mask on all the time. I love the pat McGrath eyeliner. She makes the best eyeliner. I've tried them all and she just figured, you know, it's pat. So she figured it out. She makes eyeliner, she makes such a good mascara. I just love her makeup so much. And so I've been using that. What else have I been using? So much hand cream. I can't even tell you. Oh, do you guys know the manicurist Jin soon? You know, her stuff. I worked with her actually. She did a bunch of the out stuff with us and she's so great. She makes a great cuticle oil. It's like saving me right now. Just 'cause New York is so, so, so dry. You are speaking Sarah's language. She hoards cuticle oils and hand creams. Like every week, I'm like, you have to stop talking about hand creams. Oh my God. But getting out of scarlet nose because she's a new mom and between all the diapers and the germs of you just like constantly washing your hands. It's just, it's crazy. I actually switched I don't normally have gel nail polish on because I just think it kind of makes your nails really brittle and thin. But I had to switch to gel manicure because I just washed my hands. I mean, probably no joke I probably wash my hands at least like 30 or 40 times a day. It's crazy. That's a lot of hand washing. Totally. I remember those days. I have to keep a thing. You know the neutrogena, is it neutrogena? What's that, what's that one hand cream that I love? The Norwegian Formula One. Yeah, that Norwegian. It's like old school. I keep that by the sink. It's more of like kind of like a bomb than it is like a lotion. But I keep that by the sink because I just wash my hands like 40 times a day. I love that tip. Now we're looking for the Norwegian formula of nutrients. We just did a story on refinery about how our hands are like aging quicker because COVID and hand sanitizing all this stuff and people have been slugging on their hands, Kirby, like overnight. So like putting on the heavy creams and then slipping on some gloves, which I feel like I need to do. I just always forget because I'm so tired and I just pass out. But maybe sleep with gloves on. I can't sleep with socks on. So I know. That's not happening for me. I would love to be that person. Worth a shot. Kate, what are you loving wearing on your face, body hair? I mean, you're a beauty girl through and through. So I feel like you've got some legit Rex. I am, you know, and Kirby is wearing this incredible lip right now that it's this beautiful bold lip that I'm pretty jealous of because I often wear a red lip and I think we just like just had lunch ran in here to do these podcasts and so I'm jealous of your lip. I have a Laura mercier it was read a more is that lip shade. But I think they may have discontinued it. And so then I had to start stocking up on the portofino red. So I love a red lip. I think you can get away with a very minimal makeup everywhere else. And then I giant stress zit underneath my eye. So I was like, I used one of those patches earlier in the week and then it's like it kind of tastes like just clean and clear or like cause our sticker so it's like the zit stick up but it's not that brand. So brand is it? I don't know. I have to go find it. Wait, is it the one with the little micro needles? Is that the one you're kind of referring to similar? Does it stick up? It's like similar to it stuck up, but I think to be honest. There's so many of them now. Exactly. I mean, I feel like that was the OG one, and then it just became a bit more of a commodity, and I just like, I got them. And I felt like it worked. And so that they work too. Yeah, I put some like it cosmetics, you know, like that stuff will hide everything. Totally. And so, you know, I put a little bit of that before and so now I feel like I can like looking good, seen in public at the moment. Looking good, girl. Nice to be there for a bit. Ladies. I love these Rex. These are like, these are legit good Rex. I'm definitely gonna go look for that. Norwegian formula of the neutrogena. Like, I am obsessed with that now. I had a CBS near you. Yeah. Hopefully. As we mentioned, Sarah and I are work wives, you two are work wives, and I don't know this story. I know Sarah is aware. So tell me, how did you guys meet? What's y'all's love story? How did this happen? So I had started working on what is now the outset, probably three years prior to meeting, you know, I had represented a lot of other brands as brand ambassador, face of the brand, different beauty brands for long time, for like a decade and in my late 20s, I think I just.
Christian Toto: Hollywood Creatives Are Being Left out Simply for Being White Males
"You know I read a piece this weekend I think you cited it on your social media feed or was it this weekend or less But I think it was by Barry Weiss on her sub stack but it was a different author And the gist of the piece was that this isn't just about actors you know Christian you and I think Hollywood like you say you think Scarlett Johansson and Brad Pitt and all these famous actors that's actually a very small sliver of Hollywood You got gaffers lighting people foley artists sound engineers I mean not all these people are died in the world liberals Matter of fact a lot of them believe in liberty and freedom like we do And the gist of the piece was that these writers and script writers that they're being subjected to these de facto racial quotas and you've got a bunch of middle aged basically white men who've done nothing wrong of dedicated themselves to the crap submitting scripts and stuff and being told straight out Christian they're not hiding it Hey sorry man We've got to hit some kind of quota for black minority LGBT or artists and writers and you're not it I mean that's the textbook definition of discrimination right there It is it's a great article I recommend everyone check it out to Barry Weiss's subsect page And I have some of that in my book as well I've also recently spoken to a comedian he's a straight white comedian very funny fellow and he played me an audio clip that he saved from one of his agents or reps basically saying you're a white male I can't do anything for you I'm so sorry It's happening It's real And part of this is Hollywood has done a terrible job of being diverse in the past I think the shame they have is real And they should have some guilt But this is a massive overcorrection It should be about the artistry and gifts and talents of the creators not the skin color So let everyone on board Any minority any group if you've got a great story a screenplay you're a great actor We want you That's what it should be Not this we've got to overcorrect and just an absurd way That's

"Received and i can go ahead and say this is my favorite marvel movie favorite. Yeah it's An a lot of people say that they think this one is goes against the grain kind of formula breaking like One of the only marvel movies are one of the first. I guess that is a genre film and not. It's a comic book movie. But it's also like a spy thriller. Yeah you know which is interesting. Yeah for sure. I think yeah go ahead. I love chris evans sculptor. His out agree. Yeah i agree I thought out of all of the huge cast of of the marvel cinematic universe pairing those together. it was just like a great idea You know they've paired her together with robert downey junior before and that was kind of like You know with mark ruffalo which. I also don't really care for her. Chris evans just like are just like two puzzle. Pieces fit together like whenever they're in interviews together. They did an actress on actor. I was going to bring that up. I saw that. Yeah scarlett johansson and I thought that they had like perfect. Chemistry and smoothie and I love this movie. Yeah i yeah i agree. I think i've talked about it. We just recently on the regular show where we were talking. Butter favorite moments of the twenty tens. And i brought up this movie because i think the causeway ambush sequence where the winter soldier jumps onto the car. And there's that whole sequence. I think is one of the best. Action scene marvel has ever done. I think it's such an intense gritty sequence at so well directed so well choreographed. I think that that when that moment comes. When i saw it for the first time i was like man. This is the best. 'cause it's so intense and i think that the especially the hand to hand combat towards the end of that sequences incredible with winter soldier and captain america and overall. I think that there are other great ones. Like there's the one where you i see the winter soldier and captain america chases after him in through the hallway and onto the rooftop does black panther. Show this movie. No thinking at civil war. Yeah okay. and so. I think that the the action really elevates it by still think. It's pretty solid espionage thriller. It's it's nothing groundbreaking when it comes to that. But it's still pretty solid for a movie like this. And i think that this definitely put the russo brothers on the on the map you know and i i agree. I think black Scarlett johansson and captain america or scarlett. Johansson and chris evans are fantastic together. A above the other dynamics that she's had and i think she's a perfect black widow. She has the poise as well as the the mysterious nece tour and i think even from a physical standpoint i think she carries herself well. They've Because the marble may have been passed among so many hands her character's sort of taken on a lot of different forms orig- the joss sweden directed of injuries. Yeah she had the russian accent that faded faded off into thankfully a half into you know the author and now in this new movie. It looks like she's just not having the russian accent at all. Might.

Yeah but it's like this movie is not bad. No oh no definitely not. Yeah we should do a retro review of yoga at some point. I'm easily entertained and not very critical. I can be critical when it's required of me but generally just choose not to be because it's easier. It's more fun find that you're more satisfied when you're not critical. Yeah you walk out of the theater and you just feel good. Yeah instead of just feeling you know said disappointed that we did with the rise of skywalker. Jake star wars movie. Yeah things happen. That's what most people are saying. It was action. It was exciting. Yeah you know. Just wanna see the white sabers yeah. That's hey that's that's fair.

Let's get to a big film that people are just obsessed with which is lost translation which is came out in two thousand and three and has written and directed by sofia coppola and along scarlett johansson at stars bill murray. And that's kind of the on. I guess Giovanni rabih see as well and on a ferris very briefly as well this is. I believe jacob virtues favorite movie. He loves it. He loves sofia coppola as well. Yeah and the synopsis is a faded movie star and neglected. Young woman form an unlikely bond after crossing paths in tokyo. This one made one hundred and nineteen point seven million against a budget of four million so pretty big hit for sure and was pretty widely acclaimed critically an with audiences and it's definitely had a shelf life over the years and it's one that i am constantly hearing from best of the two thousands and is a favourite of many people. Like we just said you know we. We keep hearing all this stuff about theaters dying. You know people not going to theaters anymore. But i don't know. I feel like movies. Make more money these days. I feel like always hearing about the latest movie. Just hit a billion dollars you know. Yeah like i think not to get too off track. But i think it's almost select movies that are making that money and then it's a ton are not making any at all like the middle budget movies kind of dying you know but movies. Yeah but there are still plenty of movies that are making tons of money. So that's that's for sure.

"I'm so done with marvel movies. I just have seen so many of them and they were great. I enjoyed them all. I'm just done. I'm ready for a new franchise. That's kind of how i felt about star wars and marvel. I'm ready for the next thing. I heard someone else say in that. I was talking to a group of people in some. Was like yeah. I'm just burn out on marvel. I mean not saying that. They're not great movies and when you watch them. They aren't entertaining. I'm totally over. It and marvel has a new movie coming out And i forget the name of the title Some about ten rings or something that i think i saw an ad for is exclusively in the theater. Which should also rub scarlett johansson the wrong way like why would that. Go exclusively to the theaters But i looked at the preview for it. And i'm like another marvel movie. I don't know if i want to get invested in another marvel movie. I'm kind of over it too. So i feel i hear what you're saying all right alright lasting in it'll be really quick so i told you awhile ago that i watch. I started watching community. Yeah so we finish it. Finally and i enjoyed it immensely I think they hit their stride towards the middle of the first season and up to probably the middle of the third season. They did have some weird kind of Piece different shows that we're just kind of concept pieces that were fun and you just kind of said okay. It's not about the college anymore. But i think it finished overall pretty strong and i was happy with the ending. Yeah i enjoyed the show. I mean there was at least one. Laugh out loud moment in almost every episode Well written troy and abed were hilarious. detroit bed in the morning stuff was great. Yeah it was a bummer. One troy leftist show but You know. I guess he had bigger things to do. I've not seen them in any movies. Though i know that's what he left for a movie career but Maybe movies that. I'm not watching also made a pretty big molik. I didn't know he was doing music. Okay so then so that was well worth it. If you haven't seen community check it out. It's pretty funny and you know the funny thing is at the beginning. When that show us. I started. It was running today. I don't think it would. It would be allowed and then The other thing. I wanted to say is i think you told me to watch ted lasso. I did not know someone else and somebody else right. It is i love. i've seen three episodes. I am totally in. Because i know you and your family like soccer is something i think you guys might enjoy and Yeah so it's got one season and the new season they put. I think a new episode every week one episode of weeks. It's kind of old school in that regard. But i'm really enjoying it. I'm three episodes in and i love the character. Ted lasso i absolutely love Love him and then the other ones that are involved. I'm already starting to warm up to him. I i know who. I like and who i don't you could see what growth is going to happen in the characters. He can kinda see that coming. But it doesn't bother me. I'm still enjoying it In this exclusively on apple plus right now though right apple plus yes santiago. So if you bought an iphone or one of your kids have. I believe you can get a apple plus for like six months and You could you could watch it on if you've got a tv. That has the I you know the apple service built the apple software built into it.

"Same then the pandemic hits and things go down but in addition to that disney decides. Hey they're going to go down and we're gonna stream it at the same time. I'm not upset that they screamed at the same time but i am upset the fact that they violated the contract and decided. You know. we're just gonna do this anyways. And then their response to it was. We think it's heartless for scarlett johansson to to blame the pandemic when there are people struggling the pandemic and she's already made twenty million on this movie when it's not like they're gonna take this extra money that she would have made that she should have made that she's suing for and give it to widows and orphans right. I mean they're going to keep it for themselves. Why doesn't the whole response to. I think was pathetic But yeah i agree with you. I hope she wins. And i think that i again. I agree with you that it was okay that they went to disney plus release it. That's fine that's kind of the way the market is but at that point. I think they should have met with her and said here's what we're planning on doing. So let's work out some sort of equitable for. She takes even a cut of the disney. Plus yeah he didn't work out an equitable relationship. Exactly yeah yeah come up with some sort of formula you know on the believe. They made eighty dollars in the theaters. And they get half of that so they get forty million out of that. And i'm sure out of that. Forty million is what they paid. Scarlett johansson so you might argue that well you made sixty million on disney plus one hundred percent of it so whatever that percentage was. We're going to give you the same. So we're just gonna say the six million disney plus was like our take of the box office that we're gonna add that to the forty million that we made our half of the ticket sales so the total number there is one hundred million dollars. Here's your cut. I think she probably wouldn't have had an issue with that. I don't know for sure but at least that's a little bit more. I think fair than just saying up. Sorry you said Gross ticket sales. And this is what we have. I think actors going forward are now going to put disciple stuff in their contract. And this is what we alluded to last week when we said these deals are going to change in the future. They're not gonna make the same money that they made but It's is going to be based on a different metric and is going to be a combination of ticket sales and streaming. They just need to get the contracts going forward ironed out. And i think they will. She was caught in the middle and what disney did in. My opinion was not right. The interesting thing on this is had they done that. And i don't know what the full details were and how they tried to renegotiate the contract to make it so they could you know. Go day and date on streaming. But had they gone to her and said hey. We want to go. Dan dayton streaming. We know your contract says it has to be released. And she said no you can't does disney have any sort of recourse where they're like this movie. It's our content. Were distributing it that they can override her no. She can't have ultimate veto authority on the entire movie like that. It would impact everybody. Who was involved in it. So at some point disney had to pull some sort of shenanigans that said this is our content. We can do what we want with it even though she has this other contract and you know so even if she said no there they just went forward with it. But yeah she. She probably did in fact if they went and talked to she probably said no. I want to just take my chances in the box office. Let's see how well it does. Then they released a streaming. She said well that killed my box office and and rightfully so. That's a good point that you bring up. She's not the only person she got executive producer. Credits i guess she has a saying it. But the as you know there's a whole bunch of executive producers and They even answer to the studios so her input was just part of that input but the difference is they gave her nothing so even if she said no and they said. Here's what we're doing. Here's what you're going to get. And now she made. They may have made that offer and she said no because she wanted to sue them. So there is details that we need to Made available to us which we're not gonna get until this is all said and done but on the surface of it. This is how it looks to us. If you've got more information on it or other things please let us know i You know. I'm being really hard on disney but You know maybe there was something that Scarlett johansson was difficult to deal with. I don't know but it just seems like he got scarlett johansson against as big huge company on usually gonna lean on the big huge companies taking advantage of scarlett johansson. Yeah on one hand. You're like she got twenty million. How how is that not enough but on the other hand it's like why would disney deserve that money instead of her. You know it doesn't make any sense but it doesn't matter but i agree. It doesn't matter the amount of fantasy because you get you get what you deserve an earn and if that was the deal. That's what you get so whether it was a lot or not. Yeah i don't care about now. I think that her number her fifty million number that she's suing for is probably inflated. And that's probably a number assuming that the the box office would have been what it was pre pandemic and i don't think she's should be entitled to you know estimates based on pre pandemic. I don't know i could be wrong with that. Maybe she adjusted her number based on post pandemic predictions but if her number was based on pose a pre pandemic. There's no way the box office was ever gonna hit that so like you're saying going forward Actors who have the ability to get kinda the back in deals are going to have to restructure them. They'll still the same upfront money right. I don't think that'll change it all. But if they have the ability to get the back. End deals are going to have to restructure it if they want him to match the back end deals that they were getting before when the box office was massive. Yeah anyway it's a whole new world out there for movies and we'll have to wait and see that by just personally..

I was blown away that someone would be so comfortable representing themselves that way. Then i remember i as is like a bad in tv show.

Delay it a year and whether they're like cows disregard for kovic meanwhile they're fucking parks are open and they tell people to wear masks and shit you know yeah spree critical genius of course so it is like fighting a big corporation. But it's wild. But then i saw this article from the hollywood reporter headline scarlet hanson's black widow lawsuit is game changing but may be legally week. These guys are saying basically if this doesn't get settled if it goes into arbitration disney's probably going to win the case the jury since yeah. They're they have more power that simple They probably have better lawyer. Disney you see what the parks open and all that other stuff even though they do everything in their power to project this like you know super like friendly corporation that's altruistic and progressive and this and that but blah blah behind the scenes they're all about the benjamins made absolutely and they will trust that.

"Services are swimming in debt. There is no this movie may twenty million dollars or eighty million dollars or one hundred and five million dollars over the long weekend. So i wonder whether or not this is gonna bring about or force a little bit of a different sense of accounting for the streamers because the kind of the the the one that they're doing where they're like guess what we're releasing your movie on the same day on hbo. Max that's some tech shit that's some like in slack in general slack. You get a team an announcement about our plans. Guess what we're now in this business and like everybody's just supposed to go along with it right but with the movie business where everything is supposed to be relationships. And it's obviously driven by stars. It's pretty amazing to see them. Go up to denzel washington. Little things is going to be on. Hbo max this movie that you made you know what i mean. And he was apparently happy about that and scarlett johansson. I don't think is happy about being finally getting the chance to top line. One of these movies and having it be like made thirty two million. Maybe we found out that nobody really cared about black widow. Anyway you know what i mean and disney can be happy about their streaming numbers but scarlett johansson not seeing any of those thirty dollar streaming tickets. She's also not seeing the positive spin on the larger narratives. She's spending which is her career. And i think that you really got it right. When you're talking about it being a relationship business still and perception mattering and egos mattering and that divide is not something that can be fed into the algorithm and that is in smaller skirmishes. That has come up in the past. When netflix was negotiating deals or amazon negotiating amazon. I came to hollywood. That was the whole thing that this company tech company doesn't know how to build these relationships or get stars because they're treating everything like binary code. It's not that. And what does that mean to the consumer. I'm not sure but it is worth noting that well many film stars have taken very lucrative tv roles in recent years and won awards for them. And you know that that ceiling or divide that used to exist between the mediums really doesn't exist anymore there is still even now. This rarefied air of super superstar. Who is acting in some ways because they can afford to like. It's still the ninety s where i will do an espresso commercial in japan. Where you're not gonna see it for you to but i am a film star in denzel. Washington has not done a tv show since what since saint elsewhere. And he's not going to write. You know what i mean like. That's not his bag. And i think it's worth noting to with someone like not just growth hansen. Because in the wake of her lawsuit there was some reporting. Emma stone was considering her options for krinsky. In blend i think had already done some work on their quiet place to deal because paramount announced that they were gonna put that up like forty days after forty days. It was going to go from the theaters to paramount. Plus which is where admittedly is where. I watched a quiet place to but they were like that wasn't part of the deal and also quiet place to was the movie that basically was the first film that was like supposed to be the blockbuster of twenty twenty s early blockbuster for twenty twenty and they decided to wait a whole year rather than put it out on on streaming and. I think. I'm really glad you brought that up because i think what i wanted to say but emma stone was you know she's done tv. She did maniac. For patrick somerville and cary fukunaga and she chose to do a challenging interesting part on tv. That was on a big deal to her. She didn't feel like it was a lesser project but with crew ellis. She was like okay. I'll do this big flashy thing. But the reasons that i'm doing it might not be the same reasons why disney's making it. The reasons she's doing it are probably career. Advice was just like this is good for you to stay in. The frontlines of young people talkers. Or whoever's watching that movie she probably also had a great deal fund. Being in london cregagh. Espy's good director blah blah blah. but also money. it's cool yeah private. School tuition is expensive. She's got a kid now. Find make the money so if you're doing it and it becomes a tv show anyway that's got to rank a little but that's just not the plan i mean. Maybe maybe it doesn't but they're but they're still playing whack-a-mole with like what is this. Many people did they watch. The movie did they. Now the blackwater thing is different because people actually have to pay to watch it. But if you're if you're in a movie in denzel washington you're on little things and someone starts. That movie. And i will admit i liked parts of little things but if you watch little things there are some exit ramps from that movie where you're like. This actually is bad. I will stick around. And wait for jared leto. But this movie is good and identity watching movies. Don't have people usually like walking out of the theater but it's a much different experience when people watch ten minutes of that on. Hbo maximum to be fair. It is interesting.

He had just had his fiftieth birthday and he was he had had steely. Dan play birthday at a at a airplane hangar in the santa monica airport. Yes so i don't think you say allegedly in terms of his income but please sure anyway scar. Joe was supposed to get this payday. Obviously. the pandemic has changed the release system of all popular culture but movies. Especially because there's not this reliable thing although the jungle cruise might might say. Hey we make plenty of money. And she's pissed off about it because she was supposed to get water would not say that. Read this weekend right. She wanted to get this. This huge back in participation from a giant box office for a movie that people have been waiting for for a long time because disney chose to release black widow day and date on disney plus four thirty dollars but on disney plus it just it all got spread out across a bunch of different things and now you know scarlett johansson is like. We need to renegotiate by a by payments. Since you guys renegotiated the terms of the release of this movie now the surprising thing is not this girl who heads in is necessarily annoyed by this but that disney's response was not in the bridge building business. I would say does response was like. That's fucked up that you said that you know like it was like you like we made a deal and it's weird that you're invoking this during a time of co vid when everybody is struggling you insulted him a little bit a little a little bit drinks around the house. I think that first of all i would like to begin with just the idea of challenging pay structures in light of that. Just make sure that you did receive my expense receipt for the thirty dollars. Disney plus that i paid two weeks ago. I make sure that you and rigor inc and like everyone got. I think that the male to sweden his is particularly slow. But you should see that soon. He q. one with the latest. That seems fine with me in my time. Let me just get back to my business manager about that too. It's not just the disney was like hey disney was like so many people have sacrificed so much during this time viral pandemics. They lose money. We got you now. all of it is there. This is significant on a lot of levels. I think and let's go. Let's go through them and this news broke by the way i think right after we recorded last week. So apologies for tardiness. Chris and i are both also contract attorneys so this was to our benefits have more time to pore over the the lease if you will and translate it for the layman number. One point is it's always a little bit grocer off pudding when super rich people are like. I should be a little bit more rich. But i do. Think that if you can get past that it is worth pointing out the heart of this. Which is anyone on the creative side of the ledger. In hollywood whether they are the most highly paid actors or lesser paid actors or writers or all the way down to to to grips and lighting wardrobe. There needs to be clarity from these mega mega mega international corporations. About how compensation is being factored in. And how it's being paid out like it's weird to think of scarlett johansson as the little guy here because she is not but i do think it's worth considering the merits of her claim which is fundamentally. I was promised to be paid this in exchange for my work and services. I was valued at this amount. I accepted that value of my work and services and disney has not met that so. I think that that's that's the frame with which to consider it the second piece of it though that did strike me as surprises. I feel like this should have been handled and one would imagine that from the minute. Black widow began getting delayed which is a year right. I mean wasn't supposed to be in theaters summer. This has been going on in the background. And i'm sure people with much more time on their hands than us have gone through like scarlett johansson public statements in tweets or whatever in the last year to notice any signs of discord or whatever because as soon as the mega corporation started saying. We're gonna have to look at theatrical release. In light of the global events. There was a mad scramble behind the scenes. And some of those mad scrambles went public with warner media the leaky assist in hollywood when all their movies shifted today date on. Hbo max right and we heard about filmmakers being salted and crushed and whatever but we also saw every agent in town making the emoji. Money is face because they were like now we can redo all these deals and we have them at our mercy because the corporations have said this is what they're doing so now they have to make it right so we don't try to sink these things the way a lawsuit might potentially sink them or at least damage their public relations so one has to imagine that if not kevin feige easy head of business affairs at the walt disney corporation had been on the phone with scarlets people for months explaining. I have no doubt but right the thing that's really so. I'm trying to figure out over the weekend as i sat here. And my mom's house watching least widow again and again fifty five hours of olympics coverage and like the the daily news or whatever. She's watching it. Just losing my mind. I was like is this is summer of the shark story like in any other any other time with scarlett johansson in disney having an unfortunate and to their relationship or probably not even that because disney is one of the only games in town like that. Be a big deal is really like that controversial of story and then i thought about it some more and maybe it is. Maybe it isn't. But i do think that there is an interesting. It puts a stardom under a different lens. Because movie stardom is something that's in some ways very ineffable like you can watch tom. Cruise denzel washington and julia roberts as we were growing up and just be like. That's something that this is not so they have something. This quality that is entirely impossible to describe. But like you know when you see it. Then there is the nuts and bolts of when this person's name is above the movie's title. The movie does well and that gets into like the rock like you just put him in a movie and the movie tends to do pretty well if they are going to be doing these things where they're releasing movies on these streaming services dave.
"scarlett johansson" Discussed on Here & Now
"Marshall i say like fan drives away. Plant sucks that's a scene from marvel's black widow which opened in theaters and on disney plus early last month to great fanfare but now black widow star. Scarlett johansson is suing disney who owns marvel studios over that simultaneous. Release saying that. It violated an agreement that the film would open in movie theaters. Only joining me to talk about the lawsuit and for a check in on. How hollywood is doing these days and in the summer movie season is kpcc entertainment reporter. John horn. welcome back john. Happy to be with you. So let's start with this black widow lawsuit. What's at issue here. Well it's important that she sued disney. But that's not with whom she had her contract. She had her contract with marvel and the whole ideas that if she sues marvel it goes to arbitration and the whole thing is secret. She says disney interfered with her contract with barb which makes it a public lawsuit. So yes there is the instant case of scarlett johansson saying that she was robbed of a lot of money because the film went on disney plus in at the same time but this is much bigger than that. She is represented by brian. Lord a very powerful talent agent and the creative artists agency they have tons of people who are in scarlets case so the question is is this litigation aimed at reforming the way these contracts are written 'cause scarlets people say that she could of made fifty million dollars more if her contract had been adhered to and the film had only come out in theaters. I think a little bit of a reach because it assumes the movie was gonna be a huge hit and so far. It isn't disney responded here. Well disney has said that they adhere to the contract and that she's already been paid twenty million dollars so you could say yeah. That's a lot of money but if she was entitled to more you know it doesn't mean anything so the question now is did scarlett johansson camp. Try to renegotiate her contract with marvel because a sequence is she's about to make the film. Bob eiger the head of disney says. We're gonna launch a streaming service and scarlets representative say to marvel. This feels like it might change things. Marv applies and say if it does. We're going to renegotiate. We don't know what happened. We don't know. Scarlet made an offer and disney refused. It or offer was too big or too small whatever. We don't know what happened but we do know that the film didn't do well and the national association of theatre owners which kind of speaks for all movie theaters. Said the reason it didn't do well is because it was on disney plus and dropped off precipitously in fact it's one of the worst performing marvel movies that disney has released and it collapsed. So battling its second weekend and also was the sharpest downfall for any modern marvel movie in its second regan. Well that's really interesting. So what kind of effect does a simultaneous release in theaters and on streaming have then. It's very hard to tell this movie. Dropped off sharply but then you look at the most recent fast and furious movie it wasn't on any streaming service and it opened pretty well like to seventy million dollars but then it fell sixty seven percent in. Its second weekend so you could say the die. Hard fans are coming out to see black widow and f nine the first weekend but the other people are staying home so it does feel like you know something that's fundamentally shifting and there's an research organization that tracks consumer confidence in being in theaters and feeling safe and that number is dropping as well as the delta variance spike. So i think this is a bill that can't be on rung. People are used to streaming the numbers for subscriber growth at net flicks at peacock. Nbc universals news. Streaming site are all going up. So i think it's really going to be hard for theaters to come back as vibrant as they were before the pandemic so tell us more about these new habits of movie goers people are generally not venturing back into theaters. Not at all and there are a lot of movies that people would expected to do. Really well i mean in. The heights was a movie that i really loved. I saw it in a theater but not a lot of other people did and even though it was a lot better than a year ago where we were in the height of the pandemic if you compare the second quarter of this year the box office. The total gross was five hundred million dollars if you go back. Two years pre pandemic. The july box office was one point. Three billion dollars so just a month of july. It's gone from one point. Three billion to five hundred million. Wow yes some theaters are still not open. Yes some have capacity restrictions. But that's less than half the business from two years ago and that to me would be a very worrisome. Sign for theater so our studios rethinking than holding their movies for theatrical. Release down the road at some point given those numbers that you just told us. Yeah i don't know. I mean that was certainly the case with black widow. This is a movie that was postponed for more than a year by the pandemic. But you know one of the things. That's an issue for the studios as they invest to release them. Big movie like this. It costs almost half a billion dollars. You've got maybe three hundred million dollars in production maybe another two hundred million and marketing and promotion so you have invested that money and if it's just sitting on your shelf and you're not getting in return on it. You know that starts to cost a lot of money in terms of interest though. I don't know that they're going to hold a lot of movies. Warner brothers famously..

Scarlett Johansson Sues Disney for Streaming ‘Black Widow’
"Actress Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney for alleged breach of contract by releasing the latest Marvel film Black widow on the Disney plus streaming service. The lawsuit says she was assured it would debut only in theaters. The case claims Johansson structured her salary for the film to be based largely on box office receipts.
"scarlett johansson" Discussed on The Fantasmagorium Show
"There's also the dynamic that i don't know so obviously movie theaters want to blame day and date release for for for this what they see as lack of income or you know leaving money on the table or not for black widow not achieving. What i think some people thought was going to be eight hundred million to billion dollar film. we talked about this when it came out. I think all the people that wanted to see black widow saw black widow. I don't think it was going to be an eight hundred plus million dollar box office for this film anyways even without pandemic and all of the other problems. But there's a there's you know there's a big case to be made that's the issue and it looks like she's making this case in her lawsuit yes But i think that it is a case of legalese. In a contract that was made before pandemic it was and so there is a breach-of-contract. I don't i don't i don't mean to brush up against you in the wrong way but professionalism like she did her job absolutely but a public lawsuit Instead of negotiations. I would assume that this kind of thing would have happened behind the scenes. I usually just interrupt. We didn't we don't know that it didn't in fact is the fact that disney doesn't have a statement prepared for this tells me that they did and it didn't go the way that they wanted it to or it didn't go the way she thought she needed a you know i don't think this is You know hey. I just i need money type of thing. This isn't i don't think this is a frivolous lawsuit. This business contract. That was in breach. Disney is it it is the culprit here in a lot of different ways but number one the fact that they didn't renegotiate this even before the movie came out. Or make some kind of compensation package like warner brothers did with a gal gadot and Patty jenkins for one. Okay thank you. You hate it when i connect. You're correct your frontier. I've heard it three different ways. Yeah i know. I know in it's pronounced basing or passenger on okay so anyways. Yes disney's at fault. They should have renegotiated this and they should have made it right right right from the beginning before this got out of control. I don't think her management would have filed this her meaning scarlett johansson her management team would have filed this suit if they had If they thought that they could get any bargaining or or or is it was anyway frivolous in any way.

A Review of the Newest Addition to the MCU: Black Widow
"I mean, the Marvel universe. Fans have been waiting for this for months and months and months, and now it's available. In theaters, and it's also on Disney plus so that you can see it there as well. It's going to be the apparently the only black widow films since Scarlett Johansson's character actually died in adventures and came this story has said a little before that.

And as I say, it's probably a one off for Scarlett Johansson's Who cares whose character unless she miraculously comes to life will have to remain dead after this episode. Alright, that's black Widow Next up, Don Cheadle and
