Scartlett Johansson isn’t shy and it shows.
The actress covers the newest issue of Marie Claire UK, where she talks about relationships and why women enjoy porn as well. Check out some of what she had to say below.
On her engagement announcement:
“My friend emailed me and said, ‘Wow, it’s so great that you’re about to go do this huge invasive press tour for 10 days. He said, ‘That won’t bring up every awkward question you don’t want to answer and won’t’ And I was like, you know, it is what it is.”
On her views on relationships:
“I can certain relate to this habit of wanting your partner to just kind of fit into this mold you’ve made for them. We do place pressure on somebody to just do it the way we think it should be done. It takes growth and searching to understand that it is the difference in relationships that enrich and strength the relationship, that helps us evolve as people and partners. I understand that conviction; I know that is something I am guilty of.”
On her thoughts about porn:
“I think porn like anything else, can be enjoyed. It can be productive for both men and women. If I found out my boyfriend watched that much porn I would be totally flabbergasted, for sure.”

“I ask that the media respect my wife and children through this extremely difficult time,” the statement concluded. “While I deserve your attention and criticism, my family does not.”
Schwarzenegger’s and Shriver’s reps declined to comment on the situation any further.
