Scarlett Johansson looks smokin hott in red on the February 2009 cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The actress opens up about her private life, while still managing not to give away any details. Of the proposal from husband Ryan Reynolds, she said:
“I wasn’t surprised that it was happening, but anyone being presented with a beautiful diamond ring, as a girl, you just squeal with delight. You say you can’t believe it, but of course you really can. I think all proposals are romantic. It was very down-to-earth and genuine. There was no crazy skywriting or anything like that, just nice words, and it was very sweet.”
She also talked about the extreme privacy of her Canadian wedding to Ryan. She hasn’t even released who designed her dress!
“You have to protect some things, even if it’s a silly detail like who designed your dress. It was private, which is what I really wanted. I’ve never been the girl who thought of the big dress, the big ceremony. I’m more low-key than that. Most people want photographers at their wedding, and for us it was how do we leave them out?”
She goes on to say that everything is going well in her young marriage. “I feel like everything is really normal, it’s calm and natural, like the way it should be.” She refrained to give out any marriage advice, however, saying she hasn’t been married long enough to do something like that. Additionally, despite the constant tabloid speculation, she says she is NOT pregnant, nor does she plan to be anytime soon.
She also talked about watching her husband run in the New York marathon. She describes being proud of him and says she can’t run at all:
“It was really incredible. I’m a horrible runner; I can barely put one foot in front of the other… I’m so not a sporty spice; I’m a stay-at-home-and-veg spice.”
Turning attention to her career, she says she would like to do a Western, explaining that all actors want to do at least one Western movie in their career. When asked what kind of role she saw herself in, she said she would like to be a madam running her own brothel. “It’s only so long that people are going to want to see me in a corset, so I might as well do it now.” She also says she wants to turn her attention to directing and producing, as she realizes her looks will only get her roles for so long.
