Scarlett Johansson says marriage is “not important” to her.
The 28-year-old was previously married to Hollywood hunk Ryan Reynolds, with the pair’s divorce finalised in 2011. While Ryan has since moved on and recently wed Blake Lively, Scarlett has no plans to settle down any time soon.
“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,” she told the February issue of UK magazine Elle. “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. “
Scarlett went on to confess she “never” thinks about marriage, before wondering: “Is that weird?”
The blonde beauty is believed to be dating 30-year-old French journalist Romain Dauriac.
She has revealed what she finds attractive in a man, and admits she finds relationships with actors “monotonous”.
“For me, most importantly, I look for a partner who is creative,” she said. “I like people that have a colourful way of looking at things, that are inspiring and like art, music and film.”
Scarlett also spoke about her sex symbol status. She finds it frustrating when people focus on her appearance rather than her acting talents.
“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,” she recalled. “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’.”
