Scarlett Johansson is hot on the cover of the May 2014 Glamour magazine. The "Don Jon" actress is a metallic beauty in a Lanvin jumpsuit on the cover, which will hit newsstands on April 15. Now on the verge of turning 30, the "Captain America" star is feeling savvy about both work and love, and is even feeling pretty grown-up, perhaps even outgrowing the nickname "Scarjo".
In the interview with Glamour, Johansson reveals that she dislikes the nickname "Scarjo." She says, "I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It's lazy and flippant. And there's something kind of violent about it. There's something insulting about it."
She bounced back from her 2011 divorce from actor Ryan Reynolds and is now engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac. She is also expecting her first child with Dauriac. She also opened up about her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Reynolds. The Don Jon actress states, "I feel I know now more of what I need in a relationship, what I want in a relationship. And I know I have more tools to communicate, not just with my partner, but with myself. That's not necessarily any reflection of who I was married to or what was happening in my marriage, but really where I was in my life." She also revealed that when working with Director Spike Jonze for the Academy Award winning movie "Her," she was able to relay her experiences from her own divorce into her role to better understand her character. Johansson says, "When I started to talk with Spike about the film, we shared our relationship experiences. We talked about what it feels like to not have something work and what that does to your sense of self."
As for her role in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," Johansson states, "I had some pretty rad fight sequences in Avengers, but a lot of the fighting in Winter Soldier is hand-to-hand. It's brutal, street-fighting style... such a weird thing: I kinda got career-sidetracked in the superhero lane-happily! But I never thought I'd have, like, sports injuries."
