Don Jon by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, released in 2013, highlighted the struggles of a porn addict. The story was based in New Jersey and had the authentic flavors of the state. The film’s lead actress Scarlett Johansson recently revealed what inspired her looks for the film to give a taste of the real New Jersey girl.
Recently, the “Black Widow” actress opened up about her fashion journey by showing us her looks from the start of her career. She was part of Vogue’s “Life in Looks” series. Opening up about her character’s look for the movie Don Jon, she said she was inspired by one of the characters from the reality show ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’. In the video, Johansson reveals, “I based this character on one of the New Jersey Housewives.” However, she did not reveal which one.
About her look from one of the scenes in the film in which she wears an animal print midi dress, she says she knew exactly what the character looked like. Additionally, in the video, she enthusiastically recounts, “I was just like, ‘I know this person.’ I know what watch they’re wearing. I know how their hair is done, the nails. I was just like, ‘Sign me up.’
Speaking of acrylic nails, she says she found fashion tricky. She further claims that she has a lot of respect for people who wear these nails.
In the video, she shows off all of her looks over the years, from seven-year-old girl wearing the vintage sweater to adult Johansson wearing a copper sequin dress for the 44th Kennedy Center Honors in 2021.
