Scarlett Johansson walked the premiere carpet with an unusual date on Sunday night (14.11.04) - cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants. The beautiful actress posed for photos with the cult character on the special yellow carpet outside Grauman's Chinese Theatre for the Hollywood premiere of 'The Spongebob Squarepants Movie'. Scarlett, dressed in a yellow polka-dot top and pretty white skirt, voices Spongebob's friend Mindy the Mermaid in the feature length animation.

She said of her character: "The coolest thing about being a mermaid is wearing a seashell bra." Former 'Baywatch' star David Hasselhoff also attended the premiere - he voices a talking surfboard that takes Spongebob and his best friend, pink starfish Patrick, to the undersea town of Bikini Bottom. 'Friends' actress Lisa Kudrow, rap star Ice Cube and 'Everybody Loves Raymond' star Ray Romano were among the celebrity guests who took their children to the screening. The film's soundtrack includes a string of top musicians, including Avril Lavigne, the Flaming Lips and Motorhead.
