Scarlett Johansson Tells ELLE UK: Marriage “Not Important to Me”

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Don’t count on Scarlett Johansson walking down the aisle or pushing a stroller anytime soon.

In a cover interview with Elle UK, the actress reveals that she has no current plans to marry again following her divorce from Ryan Reynolds.

“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually,” explains Johansson. “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.”

She continues, “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,” says The Avengers star, explaining, “I’m not having kids anytime soon, I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot, and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”

Johansson also opens up about her image as a sex symbol.

“I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super sexualized,” says the actress of her early years being in the public eye.

She continues, “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 [Monroe].'”

Johansson is now closing in on 30.

“I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time,” she reflects. “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.”
