    Newly divorced actress and sometime singer Scarlett Johansson is partnering with French musician Serge Gainsbourg's son Lulu for a remake of the dad's Bonnie & Clyde duet, which he recorded with Brigitte Bardot. Sexy!

    Obviously, Scar Jo has re-recorded Bardot's part in the 1968 song in English for new tribute album From Gainsbourg to Lulu. Lulu, huh? Quite the interesting name for a boy. It's also the title of the upcoming Metallica + Lou Reed project, which we're calling "Loutallica."

    Back to this particular project, it features a number of Gainsbourg classics re-recorded by his son. Hence the title.

    Johansson has dabbled in music in the past. She released an album in 2008, called Anywhere I Lay My Head. It was a bunch of Tom Waits' covers.

    Should Scar Jo stick to acting or are you enjoying her forays in to music?
