Scarlett Johansson is the Elle UK magazine cover girl for February 2013. In the issue, the Hitchcock actress, appeared in a photo shoot flaunting her figure and explained how she thinks her assets have earned her a reputation in the industry.
Check out the highlights from the interview below.
ON BEING SEXUALIZED IN THIS INDUSTRY:
“I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualized. 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’.
ON HER MARRIAGE TO RYAN REYNOLDS:
“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage.”
ON HER CRAZY TIME IN THE PUBLIC EYE, WHICH INCLUDED THOSE NUDE HACKED PHOTOS:
“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?” she added.
ON APPROACHING 30:
“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.”
