Will the gay groper strike again?
Johansson Not Holding Grudge Over Groping

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Scarlett Johansson wasn't amused when fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi groped her on the red carpet at January's Golden Globe Awards, but she's willing to forgive him.

"It was definitely in poor taste," Johansson said in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times. "I'd been prepping for two hours with hair and makeup and getting dressed. And the first interview I do, someone who I have never met before fondles me for his own satisfaction."

Mizrahi, who was doing pre-show interviews for the E! cable channel, created a flap when he groped Johansson's breast, asked Eva Longoria about her pubic hair and peeked down Teri Hatcher's dress.

"Mostly, I was thinking, 'Oh, my God. This is happening on live TV,'" Johansson recalled, adding she didn't buy the openly gay designer's explanation that he was trying to determine how her dress was put together.

"Like he doesn't know how a dress works," the 21-year-old actress said…
That Mizrahi remains on the job is pathetic; yet, given Hollywood’s morals, apropos.

A word of advice to Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal: Wear a cup and keep Mizrahi at arm’s length while you’re on the Red Carpet at the Oscars.
