Newly Tony-nominated actress Scarlett Johansson — who made her Broadway debut as Catherine Carbone in Arthur Miller’s drama A View From The Bridge – may still be in the process of selling her Hollywood villa but that hasn’t stopped her from moving on to her next real estate acquisition.
Considering the fact that her hubby Ryan Reynolds is currently filming the upcoming blockbuster Green Lantern in New Orleans, it’s hardly a surprise that the newly betrothed sweeties have set their sites on a quaint little farmhouse tucked away in Louisiana’s countryside.
What is a surprise, however, is how modest the two-story dwelling with detached garage really is – but clearly, they prefer living the simple life which is pretty refreshing given the typical excess of Hollywood a-listers.
They are among good company with fellow silver screeners such as newly crowned Oscar winner Sandra Bullock as well as Brad Pitt (along with his love Angelina Jolie and their continually expanding family) who find the post-Hurricane area – currently in the headlines due to the ongoing devastating Gulf oil spill – nevertheless still appealing.
Could it be that Johansson (who has made no secret of her preference to leave the more mundane household chores to her hubby in favor of cooking and baking) fell in love with their new Louisiana home due to its manageable size, which is just perfect for Ryan to get his dusting and mopping on?
Whatever the real motivation, the simple brick and siding structure accented with sea foam green main entrance and window shutters comes complete with a somewhat dilapidated corrugated aluminum barn suffering from a serious case of rust leprosy.
The couple might have a fair amount of remodeling to take on with this new acquisition, but they’ve already pulled off a renovation together with their previous home (going as far as to add solar heating), so this latest endeavor is hardly daunting.
Stay tuned…Ecorazzi will probably be filling readers in on the cool green transformation that Johansson and Reynolds’ home undergoes as the months pass… let’s just hope that they officially kick the sea foam green color theme to the curb
