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 don’t think I was a jealous person,” she explained. “Until I started dating my current, my one-and-only, I think maybe in the past I didn’t have the same kind of investment. Not that I liked my partner less, I just wasn’t capable of it or caring that much.
On her career:
“You know, I gotta hustle. I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right? Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers.” She added, “Then they just sort of stop. I have to hedge against that with work – theater, producing, this thing with Esquire. Sounds pretty bloodless, I guess.”
Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a long way from his days on 3rd Rock from the Sun!
The actor covers the new issue of OUT magazine.
Gordon-Levitt, who makes his directorial debut with the movie Don Juan, opens up about the career struggles he experienced after his show wrapped in 2001.
On his vision for the movie Don Jon:
“I was interested in making a movie about how people treat each other like things, and all kinds of media can contribute to that. I’ve been working as an actor since I was a little kid, and I’ve been fascinated, and a little horrified, by the way people relate to images they see on screen. Sometimes I feel I am seen as a thing more than a person, and I don’t think that’s unique to actors. I think everyone is subject to that kind of pigeonholing.”
On his career after 3rd Rock from the Sun:
“I auditioned for lots of little movies and no one wanted to put me in their creatively challenging roles because they didn’t think I could do it. And I don’t blame them. I was known for being on a farcical television show.”
On being honest:
“I almost never lie anymore. I’ve learned that it’s not useful at all, and it actually just exacerbates the situation.”
Scarlett Johansson gets political in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK.
Johansson was photographed by Alexi Lubomirski for this feature. In this issue, The actress reveals why she thinks Hilary Clinton would make a great president and she even hints at going into politics herself.
Check out some snippets from her Harper’s Bazaar UK interview below.
On going into politics in the future:
“I don’t limit the possibilities. If I have more time, I may be able to lend a bigger voice to politics. I never close the door on those kind of things. Luckily, I’m relatively uninteresting. I’ve always tried, as much as possible, to keep a prying eye at arm’s length, which doesn’t always work in my favor – but I think if you establish that early on, you remain relatively unscathed.”
On rooting for Hillary Clinton for president in 2016:
“I think Hillary Clinton would make a wonderful president. I think we could only benefit from having someone in office who has been a mother. Women have a different perspective and appreciation of humanity because of that maternal instinct… [Clinton] can only be a step forward.
On exercising her rights as an American citizen:
“I come from a politically active family. More than anything else, I believe that if everyone exercised the right to vote, the right choice would be made by the nation as a whole.
Scarlett Johansson unleashed her creative side for her new photo shoot with W magazine.
The portraits were shot by Tim Walker. The concept was developed last year while Scarlett was in France.
Instead of emulating your everyday run-of-the-mill stars, the idea was formed that Johansson would channel Marlene Dietrich, Sarah Bernhardt, Giulietta Masina in Fellini’s La Strada, and the aforementioned Keaton.
Scarlet is almost unrecognizable due to the superb execution of each icon. Take a look at the photos below.
