Scarlett Johansson covers the new issue of British Elle February 2013 which means we’ve successfully drank until 2012 stopped hurting. Johansson appears to be wearing head-to-toe Victoria Beckham designs on the cover. Inside the issue, the 28-year-old has officially been complaining for a decade about being too sexy. Except she explains a little better this time that it’s because her sexuality has been packaged in a way that made her uncomfortable from the age of 18.
- On the lazy pigeonholing: ‘I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised. 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 having no interest in marriage nor kids right now: ‘It’s 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 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?’
- On what she looks for in a partner: ‘For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative. I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film. [Although, relationships with actors are] monotonous.’
- On approaching 30-years-old: ‘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.’
