Where Will Scarlett Johansson Lay Her Head?

The talented and beautiful Scarlett Johansson has a stellar career, hunky husband, and a debut album called "Anywhere I Lay My Head." Oh, and a gorgeous 1931 Spanish-style mansion. What could possibly be missing from Sco Jo's charmed life?

Umm.... a reason for listing the home for sale at a huge loss?

That's right: Scarlett purchased the lovely home back in May, 2007 for $7 million. According to the Real Estalker, she extensively renovated the home with new windows, doors, and even solar power-generated electricity. As you can see from these photos, this Hollywood Hills beaut features a sunny atrium, chef's kitchen and period-style kitchen with new, high-end appliances. So why the new price tag of just $4.995 million?

Even movie stars are unlikely to happily part ways with a cool $2 million, and in Scarlett's case, it wouldn't be the first time she sold at a loss....Back in April of 2008 she sold her 66 Leonard Street loft for $52,000 less than the $1,950,000 she paid for the place in January of 2006, according to the Real Estalker.

So what gives? Here are some (pure-speculative) reasons Scarlett may be packing her bags:

Does Scarlett dislike one of her neighbors? Her celeb-friendly neighborhood is also home to A-listers like Charlize Theron, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, Orlando Bloom, Ben Stiller and director David Lynch.

Has the champagne gone to her head? Scarlett is simply perfect as the face of Moet & Chandon champagne. But we can all agree we've made some foolish decisions after a bit of any brand of bubbly -- might hers just be bigger and brasher?

Or... perhaps the rumors are true: Scarlett and Ryan are heading to New York City. She reportedly paid $2,100,000 for a 2-bedroom, 2-bath penthouse apartment on East 53rd Street.
