Scarlett Johansson Is Vermeer's Girl Reincarnated

Actress SCARLETT JOHANSSON is amazed with her likeness to the muse in Dutch painter JOHANNES VERMEER's GIRL WITH A PEARL EARRING after playing her in a new movie.

Johansson replaced KATE HUDSON as the mysterious servant girl who fascinated Vermeer in PETER WEBBER's new film, which takes its name from the famous painting's title.

And she admits she can't believe how much she looks like the famous face in the portrait.

She says, "When I first saw the painting, my mom said, 'Oh, that's funny, the painting looks a little like you.'

"I said, 'No, it doesn't,' but when I'm in costume and I cock my head in just the right position and we're doing a very still pose, it can be very eerie."
