Veteran Actor Tom Wilkinson Advises Scarlett Johansson to Quit Making Commercials

Tom Wilkinson Starred in 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' with Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has been urged to quit making commercials and concentrate on movies.

The 'We Bought A Zoo' actress is the face of Moet Champagne and Dolce & Gabbana make-up but her 'Girl With A Pearl Earring' co-star Tom Wilkinson believes the actress is wasting her talents in promos.

He told BANG Showbiz: "There are times I want to say to actors, 'You shouldn't be doing this, this is the one thing you shouldn't be doing.'

"An actress I know quite well, who I haven't seen for a few years now, but I used to know quite well is Scarlett Johansson. I want to say to her enough is enough already with the ads for make-up, she is such a good actress she's probably making bundles and bundles of money being the face of whatever it is. But nevertheless I want to say she's such a good actress!

"I was watching her yesterday in something she did with Dennis Quaid 'In Good Company'. It's not necessarily a good movie but she is such a good actress, I want to say that's what you do best, the other stuff is secondary."

However, Scarlett may not appreciate the advice as Tom - who can next be seen in 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' with Dev Patel and Dame Judi Dench - admits most younger stars don't ask him for help when he works with them.

The 64-year-old actor said: "I've never been asked for advice, not quite in that sense, most actors just know what to do."
