Scarlett Johansson’s Fun New Business

Scarlett Johansson is more than a talented beautiful actress. She’s a smart business woman who is set to open a gourmet popcorn store! The location will be in Paris, so you know it’ll be good, and is called “Yummy Pop.” We love the name and are curious how it’ll taste!

This isn’t just Scarlett’s shop though. She has teamed up with her husband for this yummy popcorn store. Some of the flavors available will be truffle, sage, parmesan and Vermont cheddar! What isn’t to love about a popcorn store where the ingredients are all put together fresh and in the store?

Props to Scarlett and her husband on trying something new and branching out. We hope to make it out to Paris to try it some day!

Tom Cruise Talks Top Gun Sequel

During Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday, Tom Cruise dropped a nice bit of news on us. If you’re a Top Gun fan then listen up! He said in the interview that he would be open until a Top Gun sequel. His comments were positive, saying that “It’s just got to be right. That’s all.”

A Top Gun sequel with Tom Cruise is the only way to do it and would be great to see. It has been 30 years since the original came out! That’s just amazing to even think about. Tom sits at 54 years of age, so we’d be interested to see what the basis of the sequel would be, but as long as Tom is in it then we’re going to watch.
