She is back in the Big Apple after taking a trip to California with fiancé Jason Sudeikis.

The project, which costars Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl, follows the real-life story of James Hunt, an English drag racer who ruled the track back in the 1970s.

In today’s headlines from Los Angeles, Harry Styles has a bit of a wardrobe malfunction during a London concert, Scarlett Johansson opens up in Marie Claire, the passing of Margaret Thatcher, and more!
Scarlett Johansson is Marie Claire's May cover girl. She's in the issue, which is out on newsstands next Tuesday, April 16, to chat about her Summer release Don Jon and getting to work on her next big picture, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Scarlett is back in her Black Widow catsuit to work on the Captain America project after wrapping up her latest stint on Broadway in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The show's NYC location gave her plenty of time to hang out with her French boyfriend, Romain Dauriac, who she mentioned in passing during her interview with the magazine. Scarlett also talked about dating, getting over her divorce, and her anti-social-media stance. Here are highlights from Scarlett Johansson in Marie Claire:
- On saying no to social media: "All of it drives me crazy. I don't understand this need to 'share.' We almost exploit ourselves in order to feel seen."
- On her 2010 divorce: "Well, it wasn't that long ago. But I think I've had a fair amount of time to process the experience and be able to move forward. I continue to get to know myself better as I get older, and that helps me in my relationships."
- On what she doesn't like in boyfriends: "I don't like jealous behavior. I don't mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it's really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity that is . . . Oh, controlling behavior is awful. Nobody's going to say they love that."
Olivia Wilde gets honest about her relationship with Jason Sudeikis in the April issue of Marie Claire, which hits newsstands on March 19. She posed in a sheer blue dress for the cover of the magazine and opened up about her insecurities when she first started dating Saturday Night Live star Jason. Olivia also revealed their plans for children in the future and details on their romantic, and kiss-less, first date. Read on for more from Olivia Wilde in Marie Claire.
- On her first meeting with Jason Sudeikis: "We were both seeing people but were single. He seemed to really see me, see through the bullsh*t. He said very few words and couldn't keep eye contact. He was so handsome, and he could dance."
- On her first date with Jason: "I thought, 'I'm not beautiful enough or his type.' I couldn’t wait to sit down and hear him talk. On our first date, in New York City, we closed the restaurant down at 2 a.m.! He didn't kiss me, and I was madly in love. I was overwhelmed."
- On having kids: "We've discussed all our ideals and hopes. I can't wait for children. I'm open-minded about how many, but three, which I love, is like a little party."
Keira Knightley took a break from her many projects to pose for the March issue of Marie Claire, which hits newsstands on Feb. 12. She recently wrapped work on Can a Song Save Your Life? and is already back in front of the cameras for Jack Ryan. Inside the publication, Keira talked about what type of wedding she and Klaxons rocker James Righton definitely won't be having, her thoughts on Kate Middleton's pregnancy, and much more. Here's more from Keira Knightley in Marie Claire:
- On the paparazzi shot we won't see: "They're not going to get a shot of me falling out of my knickers as I'm coming out of a club."
- On the royal family: "I'm over the moon about the royal baby. But I really can't mount an argument in favor of monarchy. Is that treason? Do I have to turn in my passport?"
- On her upcoming wedding: "I could have six fake weddings. God, that would be expensive. We're not really big-wedding types. I don't need to have all that."

Marie Claire's new editor in chief, Anne Fulenwider, has wasted no time bringing star power to her masthead. She tweeted Wednesday morning that Nina Garcia had been promoted from fashion director to creative director, and that former W Magazine creative director Alex Gonzalez is the magazine's new artistic director.
"Alex and Nina are both inspired visual storytellers, and I am excited about what they will each bring to this new phase in Marie Claire's evolution," Fulenwider said in a statement. "Alex's impeccable taste and discerning eye will add a fresh point of view, and Nina truly embodies Marie Claire from a fashion and style perspective."
Garcia's new title is effective immediately. She'd been the fashion director at Marie Claire since late 2008 and will still appear as a judge on Project Runway. Gonzalez, who had been creative director of W since last February, starts next week. He'll keep his other job as the executive creative director of AR New York, the advertising agency he cofounded in 1996.
Gwen Stefani showed off her rock-hard abs for the cover of Marie Claire's October issue. She's promoting her upcoming album with No Doubt, Push and Shove, and is also getting back to performing. Gwen kicked off the NFL season on stage in NYC last week, and recently announced new LA concert dates with her band. She's busy with her career, but took time to talk about her family life, husband Gavin Rossdale, and how she's trying to cut back. Here's more from Gwen Stefani in Marie Claire:
- On her marriage: "My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it's hard, everyone knows it's hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together. [Our relationship] is better than it's ever been. Like, we're learning about each other all the time. He's an amazing dad, he works so hard. He balances me out. And he — he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does."
- On wanting a third baby: "I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn't really work out. So . . . I feel good with what we've got. Everything works out how it should. You can't plan anything, right? You can try."
- On cutting back: "I've got myself in a lot of trouble by not saying no. This last year I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that, and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up. I have learned to delegate. I missed the last two Fashion Weeks because they were when school started; I can't miss the first week of kindergarten."
Joanna Coles says she doesn't want to rock the boat at Cosmopolitan now that she's been appointed the magazine's editor in chief.
"I'm looking forward to meeting the staff properly and getting in there and getting my head under the hood," Coles told us Wednesday after moderating a panel at the Democratic National Convention. "It's very successful. I'm not going to muddle."
Coles added that under her watch, the magazine will still be dedicated to "strong, independent women who like to have fun. I mean, Helen Gurley Brown's idea was, 'Good girls go to heaven, bad girls go everywhere,'" she said. "I'd rather be a bad girl."
While Coles — previously editor of Marie Claire for over six years — may not have specific plans for the magazine itself, she told WWD on Tuesday that she has "ideas for partnerships and leveraging some of the brand and expanding various bits of it. Opening it up more editorially."
Coles will officially take over for outgoing editor Kate White on Sept. 10. She will be replaced at Marie Claire by Annie Fulenwider, the former editor in chief of Brides.
