If you can stop dribbling onto your keyboard at these photos for long enough to read some words, Scarlett Johansson has decided that now is the time to open up about her love life, and reveal what really went wrong in her marriage to Ryan Reynolds – and how she’s coped with life in the public eye. “It was a crazy time,” Scarlett admits, about the time when her phone was hacked, revealing the naked photos she’d intended to send to her then husband.
“I had some problems in my family and publicly, my relationship – all that stuff. It was like “Oh man what next?” But life has ebbs and flows, don’t you think? Things are more manageable now, but I’m sure something will crumble.” “I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words.
To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me. “Would I get married again?” It’s really not important to me.” “It has no relevance to me right now. I’m not having kids any time soon, I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”
“I think there are challenges whether that person’s in your profession or not. It’s nice that [fellow actors] can relate, and you have a shorthand when you’re talking about work, but that can also be monotonous. For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative. I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film’.”
Scarlett goes on to address the attention she’s received for her figure ever since she first entered the limelight. “I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super,” she says. “I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young. I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family.
