Scarlett Johansson graces the cover of Vogue's latest issue, just in time for the release of her new movie "The Avengers". In the cover story for the magazine, the Black Widow depicter talks about her heartache after splitting from Ryan Reynolds and her new romance with New York-based advertising creative director Nate Taylor.
When asked about her separation from the "Safe House" leading actor, Scarlett admits, "It was horrible." Though "comically amicable," it's still "devastating" for her. "It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn't work out," she explains.
"This was something I never thought I would be doing," the movie beauty continues to share about how she felt about the split. "And there's no way to navigate it. Nobody can give you the right answer. It's never anything you want to hear. It's a very lonely thing. It's like the loneliest thing you'll ever do, in some way."
Despite the painful separation she had to go through, the movie beauty has no regret about getting married. "It was a beautiful thing," she says. "The falling in love and getting married and making that commitment . . . I think it's nice to know that you're capable of loving somebody in that way. I think it's a rare opportunity."
When talking about the importance of spending quality time together, Scarlett sounds almost wistful, "I'm not saying more time in the marriage, but just having more time with my ex and really clocking those hours of face time with the person you love, really live together and not having the pressure of two people that have these careers...."
As for her new boyfriend, Scarlett praises him for handling the media scrutiny quite well, given that he's not used to dating celebrity. "It must be very strange for him," she says. "It's totally bizarre. It's an adjustment - I mean, it's got to be an adjustment for him way more than it was for me at nineteen. But he's really remarkably good about it."
In the interview, Scarlett additionally addresses her nude pictures that leaked a year ago. "When all those photos came out, of course I go out to dinner and think, Goddamn it, these people have all seen my. . . ," she says. "That's terrible. You know what I mean? You can't not think that. Even if they haven't, you're paranoid."
"I don't want pity," the "Lost in Translation" actress insists. So, she tried to deal with it the best she could by "tuning it all out." The result of having a strict media blackout is she's "way happier" as she explains, "It's nice. It allows me, I think, to be more creative. It's nice not to be so self-aware."
