Scarlett Johansson Couldn’t Bring SexyBack For “The Nanny Diaries”

Scarlett Johansson received a makeunder “Ugly Betty” style for her as a student working her way through college in The Nanny Diaries.

The film’s co-director Robert Pulcini: “We thought about how we would approach Scarlett because she is very glamorous, but she’s the one who said, ‘I really think I should have brown hair and look like an everyday college girl in this movie.’ ”

“It’s very much the story of a girl finding her identity. She’s quite confused about what kind of future she should choose, and she ducks out of her life for a period and deals with other people’s problems instead of her own. She’s avoiding that final step into adulthood,” Robert continued.

The Nanny Diaries is based on the best-selling novel by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus.
