Esquire"Sexiest Woman Alive,"
We kid because we love, of course, but the covers keep coming from Miss Scarlett Johansson. And this time she has even added a sixth metaphorical father figure, The Cure's Robert Smith.
iTunes recently released Johansson's live sessions EP, which features six Tom Waits covers (five that were featured on her Anywhere I Lay My Head LP and her rendition of "Innocent When You Dream") and The Cure's ubiquitous(ly awesome) "Boys Don't Cry."
While we can't imagine an angst-ridden girl-in-the-corner Johansson sitting alone in her room sulking to Smith's vocals, her sultry yet sulky version of the song seems a more apt soundtrack to the Hilary Swank movie than a direct cover of Smith's original.
The EP is available for download on iTunes now. Extra points for you if you do anything more than listen to the 30-second snippets and immediately write some variation of "she's hot... but come on" or "she should stick to acting, but she's still hot." Originality, people.
