Do not call her ScarJo.
Serious actress Scarlett Johansson has serious problems with her JLo-esque nickname.
“I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant," she told the May issue of Glamour magazine. "And there’s something kind of violent about it. There’s something insulting about it.”
Johansson, 29, says she has come a long way from "Lost in Translation," the film that made her a star at age 17, and she wants people to know it.
“When I made 'Lost in Translation,' I was 17, and now I’m 29…. I think I’ve been ‘in my early twenties’ for, like, over a decade! That’s a normal side effect of being a young actor. You’re captured in a certain time of your life, and it’s hard for people to move past that.”
Something else she has moved past? Her divorce from actor Ryan Reynolds.
“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," she said. "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.”
Johannson is now reportedly pregnant and living in Paris with her journalist boyfriend Romain Dauriac, and said the change of scenery is doing wonders for her fashion sense.
“The nice thing about being in Paris is that you know everybody’s looking at what you’re wearing: You have an audience, you know?" she said. "New York is about street style that’s functional. A Paris look is not functional! It doesn’t matter if your shoes are comfortable. Here [in New York] you can still wear your Nikes. In Paris you suck it up. You hobble around. Although my girlfriends in Paris and I decided we’re adopting the trend of athletic streetwear ’cause we got sick of it. I was like, ‘I am sick of not feeling my big toe after two hours of dancing!’”
