Scarlett Johansson lands the February cover of Elle UK, and I think she looks gorgeous! Scarlett is still promoting her role as Janet Leigh in ‘Hitchcock’. Sidenote: Did you guys see ‘Hitchcock’? I saw it, and I was very underwhelmed. I felt like there wasn’t any MEAT to the movie. After the movie was over, I thought to myself “Well, what was the point of that movie?” I didn’t feel like there was enough story in the film. I didn’t feel connected to any of the characters. It was….. just okay.
Anyway, on the cover, Scarlett is wearing all Victoria Beckham. She looks great. Here’s more from the interview, via Celebitchy:
On turning 30 soon: “I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time. Now as I approach 30, with the last few years behind me, I feel like growing pains are behind me. It’s just nice to feel happy.”
About the phone hacking of her nude pics: “It was a crazy time. 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 keep it together. I am relatively composed but I can also lose my s***. I’m pretty controlled, and probably controlling too, for better or worse. I’m working on it.”
She’s not looking to get married again: “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.”
On dating outside of the acting pool: “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’.”
On her unwitting “sexy” image: “I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised. I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young. I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family. Throw on an evening frock and it’s like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like: ‘bombshell!’ Instantly it was: ‘The new Marilyn’.”
This isn’t the first time Scarlett has complained about being sexualized. Enough already. You’re a beautiful woman – and people are going to comment. There are many worse things you could be called than Marilyn Monroe. Ask Lindsay Lohan.
