Scarlett Johansson joined musical collaborator Pete Yorn for a photo shoot in November's Glamour, which hits newsstands on October 6. You guys are loving the music they've created, but Scarlett opened up about more than their songs — she also discussed her one year of marriage with Ryan Reynolds and addressed a recent body image controversy. Here's more:
- On body image: "There was this rumor mill cranking out stories that I had lost 14 pounds — I could never lose 14 pounds. . . I hate seeing these ridiculous articles where [tabloids] guess someone’s weight. . . I can’t look at somebody who is 6 feet tall and 120 pounds and say, I’m going to get that body. That’s just never going to happen. You have to work with what you’ve got."
- On getting married: "I never really thought about getting married — it just kind of happened. It seemed natural, the right thing to do. It was kind of a celebration of the time. . . I think the only difference is that I’m kind of making my own little family now, which is funny. It’s like a little bit of a tribe. You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself. You’ve had this one view, and now you have another view. I feel more confident to explore things within myself that I hadn’t thought about in the past. . . My parents divorced when I was 13, so it was not the ideal representation of marriage."
- On making an album with Pete Yorn: "I’ve known him for a while. I’ve worked with both of his brothers, who are in the entertainment industry. One day Pete texted me out of the blue saying, 'Hey, do you want to record an album?' I was like, 'Whoa, that’s a weird message.' But I said, 'Sure—why not?'"
