"I would love to do another album. The spirit has not moved me yet in that direction, but I would never put that idea out. I had such an incredible time doing Break Up [with Pete Yorn] and doing the [Tom] Waits [cover] album that I think there might be something in there in the future. I love to do covers. Covers are fun. I'm a huge music lover, music collector, listener and all those things. I like to do covers 'cause I feel like I'm in the shower. I think I'd probably do original songs for sure."
-"Iron Man 2" star and recording artist Scarlett Johansson, discussing her enthusiasm for recording other people's songs and her desire to craft some tunes of her own on future albums. The 25-year-old star has released two albums (a series of duets with Pete Yorn called Break Up and a solo album called Anywhere I Lay My Head that was made up mostly of covers of Tom Waits songs) and has worked with David Bowie, the Jesus and Mary Chain and members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV on the Radio and Celebration. She also recorded a sweet cover of Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye" for the soundtrack to the 2009 film "He's Just Not That Into You."
Johansson stars as Black Widow in "Iron Man 2" (which opens in theaters this Friday, May 7) but has a number of other projects on the horizon, including a possible role as Courtney Love in the in-production biopic about Kurt Cobain. "I know that there is a script. That's as much as I know about it," she said of the film, which is based on the Cobain biography "Heavier Than Heaven." "I'm a big fan of Courtney's and I think she's very, very talented. It would definitely be a challenge. I think the idea is interesting and intriguing, but I would have to really wrap my head around it."
