Scarlett Johansson Talks Ryan Reynolds Divorce, Graces Cover of Two Magazines
The Captain America: The Winter Soldier actress, who graces the cover of both Glamour and Vanity Fair‘s May 2014 issues, says she’s in a happier place than she was when she was younger. Now engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac and expecting their first child together, the 29-year-old opens up about failed marriage to Ryan Reynolds and what she has learned from that experience.
“I think I know myself better,” she tells Glamour. “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 continues, “When I was first married, I was much younger. And I have had the opportunity now to work more on getting to know myself. I think that makes you a better partner and somebody who is able to work with somebody and stay in a relationship in the not-romantic moments. I have more patience with myself. I have more patience with my partner. I think that just comes with age, probably.”
In her interview Vanity Fair, Johansson gushes about her relationship with her husband-to-be, telling the magazine that it’s great to be able to step out of the entertainment industry and learn about his world.
“We do different things,” she says. “He’s in the whole art-scene world. So it’s nice, because we can enjoy each other’s worlds, but we don’t have our crazy conflicting schedules and all that other stuff to contend with.”
“And, you know, of course, actors, in general, they’re obsessed with emotions,” Johansson adds. “Although, he’s French, so he’s also probably overly into his emotions.”
