(March 4) - Scarlett Johansson, star of the upcoming action flick 'The Amazon Warrior', opened up to the Daily Telegraph about her best attributes, her newly dark hair, and her anxieties over playing a gladiatrix in the year 200BC. Some highlights of the interview are below.
On her drastic hair change: "For a long time I've had really white-blonde hair. I'm naturally blonde ? my dad's Danish ? and I was playing up to it. I wanted to act out all those famous blonde icons ? Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe... Ever since I started on the red carpet, my idea of glamour was the Golden Age of Hollywood. I like to be feminine. Give the people what they want. The hair, the make-up, the gown, the diamonds. That, to me, is glamour."

"[My hair is] more a dark red. I was bored one day. It was raining. I was with a hairdresser friend and just decided to color my hair. We experimented with a few shades until we got the right one. I like it."
On who inspires her fashion - and her shapely gams: "I guess Rita Hayworth or Ava Gardner. Most probably Rita Hayworth. Oh, those legs of hers. My legs? They're not bad. They get me places."
On her role in 'The Amazon Warrior': "I think I'm supposed to be a gladiatrix. These film guys are crazy about gladiatrixes. But do I fit into the Amazon mold? I'm a Danish/Jewish girl from New York. I've done weapons-training. I've fired all kinds of guns: 9mm semi-automatics, machine-guns, shotguns. I've jumped off a 60ft building. I learned to ride for 'The Horse Whisperer.' But I've never done a full-on action role."
"I guess I'm still waiting for my Cirque du Soleil moment. It would be fun."
