Scarlett Johansson’s Sinatra Secret

Scarlett Johansson wants to be Frank SinatraScarlett Johansson wants to be Frank Sinatra.

The Lost in Translation star admits that the Rat Pack singer-and-actor was one of her childhood heroes and she hopes to emulate his singing voice in the future:

“I always wanted to be Frank Sinatra. Even as a little kid, I always thought I’d grow up and sound like Sinatra. I’m still waiting for that to happen. A lot of actors are great mimics anyway, and that can relate to music as well. I think all singers are acting, whether it’s their lyrics or another writer’s lyrics, they are performing. I don’t think the two are dissimilar.”

Uh, oh—watch out, Leo.

Despite her success, Scarlett—who is set to release her second album, The Break-Up, a series of duets with close friend Pete Yorn—admits she is still astonished when she lands big jobs. She told Britain’s The Times newspaper, “That always shocks me, when I get hired for anything. Either as an actor or, in this case, a vocalist for hire. As soon as one project ends, you never think you will get the chance again. I was just flattered that Pete thought of me and put the faith in me that I could creatively collaborate on anything.”
