Scarlett Johansson is warned

Scarlett Johansson is the face of Moet Champagne and Dolce & Gabbana, but has recently been warned...

Scarlett Johansson has been urged to quit making commercials and concentrate on movies.

The We Bought A Zoo actress is the face of Moet Champagne and Dolce & Gabbana make-up but her Girl With A Pearl Earring co-star Tom Wilkinson believes the actress is wasting her talents in promos.

He told BANG Showbiz: “There are times I want to say to actors, ‘You shouldn’t be doing this, this is the one thing you shouldn’t be doing.'”

“An actress I know quite well, who I haven’t seen for a few years now, but I used to know quite well is Scarlett Johansson. I want to say to her enough is enough already with the ads for make-up, she is such a good actress she’s probably making bundles and bundles of money being the face of whatever it is. But nevertheless I want to say she’s such a good actress! I was watching her yesterday in something she did with Dennis Quaid In Good Company. It’s not necessarily a good movie but she is such a good actress, I want to say that’s what you do best, the other stuff is secondary.”

However, Scarlett may not appreciate the advice as Tom – who can next be seen in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with Dev Patel and Dame Judi Dench – admits most younger stars don’t ask him for help when he works with them.

“I’ve never been asked for advice, not quite in that sense, most actors just know what to do.” He says.
