Scarlett Johansson in Glamour Magazine, November 2009


Scarlett Johansson on her body image:

“There was this rumor mill cranking out stories that I had lost 14 pounds—I could never lose 14 pounds…I hate seeing these ridiculous articles where [tabloids] guess someone’s weight…I can’t look at somebody who is 6 feet tall and 120 pounds and say, I’m going to get that body. That’s just never going to happen. You have to work with what you’ve got.”

Scarlett on getting married:

“I never really thought about getting married—it just kind of happened…You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself…I feel more confident to explore things within myself that I hadn’t thought about in the past.”

Scarlett on the red carpet:

“I have a tumultuous relationship with it because I love to get ready for the red carpet, but being on it is very uncomfortable. It’s so freakish and weird. I get flop sweats, dry mouth, heart palpitations, allover panic!”


Scarlett on her new album with Pete Yorn:

“I’ve known him for a while. I’ve worked with both of his brothers, who are in the entertainment industry. One day Pete texted me out of the blue saying, ‘Hey, do you want to record an album?’ I was like, Whoa, that’s a weird message. But I said, ‘Sure—why not?’”

Pete Yorn on choosing Scarlett:

“I had just discovered ‘Bonnie and Clyde,’ a Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot duet, so I watched some videos of Bardot, and they made me think of Scarlett. She represents to me what Bardot did back then. She has a confident sexiness, but at the same time, an innocence.”
