Why You Should Never Ever Call Scarlett Johansson "ScarJo"

Apr 8 2014 - 7:20am

Scarlett Johansson [1] gets candid about her transition to adulthood in a new interview for the May issue of Glamour [2], which hits newsstands on April 15. The actress mentioned that she often still feels like she's in her early 20s since she rose to fame in her late teens, saying, "When I madeĀ Lost in Translation, I was 17, and now I'm 29. I think I've been 'in my early 20s' 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." She added that she has also matured a lot since her marriage to Ryan Reynolds [3], whom she separated from in 2010: "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." It's a good thing that Scarlett has learned what she wants from a relationship as she is currently engaged to Romain Dauriac, a French advertising executive. (The two are also expecting their first child.)

Scarlett touched on how her new Parisian life with Romain has influenced her own sense of style, saying, "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? 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!'" One thing that Scarlett hasn't changed is her continued dislike [4] for her nickname, "ScarJo," which she calls "lazy and flippant" and notes that there is "something kind of violent about it . . . something insulting about it."
