Scarlett Johansson hearts Leonard Cohen

    In a conversation with MTV about the musical side of her talents, cinematic bombshell Scarlett Johansson mentioned that she’d consider doing another album to follow up Anywhere I Lay My Head, her collection of Tom Waits cover tunes, despite the fact that her recording debut didn’t exactly set the world on fire. But she observed that next time around, she’d take a different approach. "I don’t think I’d do covers" said the actress/singer. Whether or not the world is ready for an album full of original tunes by the 24-year-old sexpot remains to be seen, but Johansson did leave one other intriguing possibility hanging in the air, when asked what other artist she’d consider covering if necessary. "If I had to, Leonard Cohen, maybe" she replied. Somewhere, the old lothario singer/songwriter, known for his appeal to younger women, was rubbing his hands together and bursting out into a deep, ominous chuckle.
