While the news that Scarlett Johansson was getting a divorce was greeted with fist-pumping and ugly jigs of joy in the FHM office, we stopped short of popping any bubbly. Why? Because all we’ve got in the fridge is some Frank’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer and a block of cheese that was originally a very thoughtful and genuinely desirable Secret Santa present but is now a health hazard.
Glass act: Scarlett probably didn't make that herself
Scarlett Johansson, on the other hand, has bounced back from her actor husband Ryan Reynolds filing for divorce by posing all sexy and well dressed for champagne masters Moët & Chandon. Voted FHM’s third Sexiest Woman in the World in 2006, Scarlett has dropped off in the rankings since being officially off the market.
But the curvy star has raced back onto the radar after her turn as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and the fact that, technically at least, she could be your next girlfriend. A spokesman for Moët & Chandon said: “Moët & Chandon, the most loved champagne since 1743, is a universal symbol of joie de vivre and success. This new campaign highlights a return to the immutable elegance and glamour that are inherent to both Moët and Scarlett."
Joie de vivre: that's French for 'rat-arsed'
That French term ‘joie de vivre’ reminded us of someone who applied for an internship at FHM, describing themselves as a ‘bon viveur and raconteur’. They didn't get it. Scarlett would though, because she was the third Sexiest Woman in the World in 2006. And she’s packing champers.
