I wonder who cooked this one up? Just after being cut loose by Oxfam, and becoming the darling of the right wing and a heroine of the settlers, because of her support for a business that operates out of an illegal Jewish settlement in the West Bank, actress Scarlett Johansson is to receive a big honor in France later this month. The news is in Figaro, which says the honor is the leading award in French cinema and will recognize the actress’s career achievement, at 29, and here is Broadway World:
Variety reports that Scarlett Johansson, who will next be seen on the big screen in Luc Besson’s “Lucy,” will be the recipient of France’s honorary Cesar Award.
She will join past Hollywood stars such as Dustin Hoffman, Kate Winslet and Kevin Costner who have also been honored with the distinguished honor. The 29-year old star may be the youngest star to receive this award.
The Cesar ceremony will be held in Paris on Feburary 24th.
