Scarlett Johansson has described her first marriage as “incredibly romantic”, but insisted she currently has no plans to tie the knot for the second time. Speaking to the latest issue of ELLE UK (out January 2) the star – currently promoting ‘Hitchcock’ – said that she liked being married to Ryan Reynolds, at the time.

She said: “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.”

The actress has this year also suffered a leak of personal intimate photos, intended for Reynolds. The hacker responsible has since been jailed.

“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?’,” she said. “But life has ebbs and flows, don’t you think? Things are more manageable now, but I’m sure something will crumble.”

Here’s hoping life stays crumble-free!

With every new cover, comes a photoshoot. I added the first 2 pics of the shoot Scarlett did for Elle, shot by Rankin.

Ever since her breakthrough performance in Sophia Coppola’s Lost In Translation, Scarlett Johansson has become known for exuding old school glamour on the red carpet. So it came as no surprise to see the petite actress play one of the most legendary icy blondes to ever work with Alfred Hitchcock in a film biopic of his life. Ahead of the movie’s release, Scarlett showed just why she was selected for the role of Janet Leigh in a series of smouldering photos captured by acclaimed photographer Rankin. As the February 2013 cover star of UK Elle magazine, the 28-year old’s retro curves were given a modern makeover using a fresh colour palette of next season’s designer offerings.

After hacking the email accounts of more than 50 celebrities, Christopher Chaney was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday (December 17).

Back in March, Chaney pleaded guilty to nine felony counts, including wiretapping and unauthorized access to a computer.

His targets included Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera, and Mila Kunis. Law enforcement finally caught up to the hacker in October 2011 as part of the FBI’s “Operation Hackerazzi” investigation.

Because of his actions, nude photos taken by Scarlett Johansson intended for then-husband Ryan Reynolds were leaked to the internet.

The actress got a horseshoe tattoo on her ribcage, inscribed with “Lucky You”.

Holding up up her grey T-shirt, the 27-year-old actress showed off her brand new accessory, which she opted for while in Paris, France, last week.

The Hitchcock actress commissioned French tattoist and graffiti artist Fuzi Uvtpk to create the inking for her after recently attending an exhibition of his work at Le Salon.

Klik op de foto om originele grootte te bekijkenScarlett Johansson was scared to death when she shot the infamous shower scene from Psycho for her new film Hitchcock, because of co-star Anthony Hopkins.

Scarlett, who plays actress Janet Leigh in the film, says that she didn’t mind stripping down and getting all wet to film the iconic scene — but she did have trouble getting Hopkins’ portrayal of cannibalistic Silence Of The Lambs serial killer Hannibal Lecter out of her head — something that actually helped her nail the scene.

“Hmm, how did I prepare? Well, I just prepared myself to get very, very wet,” she tells V Magazine. “We only had the luxury to shoot the scene for a day, and everybody was feeling very nervous because it involved water and nobody wants the actor to get wet. They were concerned with modesty and all these things — but I don’t care about any of that stuff and Janet Leigh never did either.

“You have got to be brave, get into the shower, and face Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock jabbing you in the face with a 12-inch kitchen knife…” she adds. “But that’s what he does! As much as Anthony Hopkins is a pussycat, he’s terrifying. Maybe I watched Silence of the Lambs too many times when I was a kid. Maybe I was having some flashbacks. So I didn’t need too much preparation for the scene.”

Hitchcock, which focuses on the life of the legendary director and the behind-the-scenes happenings while he was filming his 1959 classic Psycho, opens November 23. Check out ScarJo’s full interview in the December issue of V Magazine and at V Magazine.com

Sultry Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has broken up with her  boyfriend Nate Naylor.

The 27-year-old Lost In Translation star, left, met the dashing advertising executive  in January – after splitting up with  52-year-old actor Sean Penn – and the romance progressed quickly, with Nate, 38, all but moving into her Manhattan apartment. But last month she was pictured cuddling up to and holding hands with her ex-boyfriend, actor Jared Leto, 40, during a speech at  a political rally in North Carolina.

At the time she insisted they were just good friends and her representatives adamantly denied that she and Nate had split, saying: ‘Scarlett is still dating Nate. This is very innocent. Scarlett and Jared have remained friends, nothing more, nothing less.’

But just a few weeks later Nate – who is a dead ringer for Don Draper from the TV series Mad Men and who has posted hundreds of violent and sexually charged bondage photographs on his personal website – has moved all of his belongings out of her flat and the relationship is over.

‘They never officially lived together, but Nate has moved all of his stuff out and back into his apartment,’ says a source. ‘The relationship is over. It has not been amicable.’ Scarlett’s representative declined to comment last night.

Don’t want to wait for Thanksgiving weekend to see Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins? Well, if you live in or near Hollywood, CA, you can see it November 1st when it kicks off the AFI Fest 2012. Read on for the details.

From the Press Release:
On November 1, 2012, the World Premiere of HITCHCOCK will open the AFI FEST 2012 at Grauman’s historic Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. The film stars Academy Award® winner Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock; Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren as his wife, Alma Reville; Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh; Jessica Biel as Vera Miles; and James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins.

The film is directed by Sacha Gervasi and also stars Toni Collette, Danny Huston, and Michael Stuhlbarg. From a screenplay by John J. McLaughlin, the film is based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello. HITCHCOCK, a love story about one of the most influential filmmakers of the last century, Alfred Hitchcock, and his wife and partner, Alma Reville, takes place during the making of the distinguished director’s seminal 1960 movie PSYCHO.

“AFI’s history with Alfred Hitchcock is a proud one, from a Master Seminar at the AFI Conservatory in 1970 to his receiving the AFI Life Achievement Award in 1979,” said Bob Gazzale, President and CEO of the American Film Institute. “We are honored to celebrate his lasting legacy with the World Premiere of HITCHCOCK – a bloody valentine to his creative genius and the inspired woman at his side.”

“Alfred Hitchcock’s signature style has made him one of the most influential directors in the world,” said Jacqueline Lyanga, Director, AFI FEST. “This film pulls back the curtain and takes us behind-the-scenes of his lifelong collaboration with his wife, Alma, during the making of his 1960 masterpiece PSYCHO – it’s the perfect film to welcome our audience of movie-lovers with on opening night.”

For the fourth consecutive year, AFI FEST will continue its unprecedented offer of free tickets to all screenings, but only the Star Patron Package and Marquee Patron Package will provide reserved seating at the World Premiere opening night gala of HITCHCOCK. These and other AFI FEST Patron Packages and Passes – which can include access to sold-out galas and other high-demand films and events – are on sale now at AFI.com.
