She’s fresh off of reprising her role as Black Widow in the ultra-successful superhero film “The Avengers,” and Scarlett Johansson has followed up her theatrical goof fortunes by covering the September 2012 issue of Easy Living magazine.

Highlights from Miss Johansson’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Easy Living!
On her love of NYC:
“I love New York. It’s beautiful and challenging. So inspiring. I could stay out all night, until the sun comes up. I was born and raised here. It’s home.”
On feeling older than she really is:
“I feel like I’ve lived a long time already. I’ve always been around older people. As a kid on set, I was always the youngest.”
On relationships and marriage:
“Falling in love and getting married… It’s nice to know you’re capable of loving somebody in that way. I always think I can figure everything out. Realizing that – if you are with the right person, they can help you out – can be hard. Relationships are complicated.”
On the downside of stardom:
“I don’t like to complain about it, but it was a strange transition to go from being an honest been recognizable. People are either really lovely your chair of the rude. It’s quite shocking when people are following you, bothering you in the bathroom, in the middle of a meal. It’s like the aero of decency is gone.”
On not describing herself as the sex goddesses:
“It’s easy to label an actor who’s played sexually charged characters as a sex-symbol. It’s wonderful for people to think you’re attractive but it’s not something that defines me. Maybe that sounds… This is probably an annoying thing to say. But I’s like to think that I have more interesting defining qualities as an actor.”
With her new movie “The Amazing Spider-Man” set to hit theaters on July 3rd, Emma Stone garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the July 2012 issue of Vogue magazine.
The 23-year-old actress looked enchanting in a Nina Ricci Fall 2012 dress for the Mario Testino shot front page while dishing about fashion, her job as an actress and her upcoming film.
Highlights from Miss Stone’s article are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vogue!
On her job as an actress:
“I’m not saving lives. But I get to tell stories, and that’s a pretty important task.”
On her acting upbringing:
“Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches.”
On the effect of fashion on people:
“It makes them feel like it’s an extension of themselves.”
“Amazing Spider-Man” Producer Matt Tolmach on Emma:
“She’s stunning, so she’s disarming.”
“Amazing Spider-Man” co-star/boyfriend Andrew Garfield on Emma:
“Working with Emma was like diving into a thrilling, twisting river and never holding on to the sides.”
“Amazing Spider-Man” Director Marc Webb on Emma:
“A lot of young actresses are either very serious or doe-eyed. Emma sidesteps that.”

Kicking off the week with a very special occasion, Angelina Jolie is celebrating her 37th birthday today (June 4).
The “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” starlet is one of the most high-profile mommies in Tinseltown as well as the soon-to-be-bride of none other than Brad Pitt.
And in addition to her impressive resume of movie roles, Angelina knocked it out of the park with her recent directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”
Coming up, Ms. Jolie will star as the wicked fairy in “Maleficent,” a recreation of the Disney classic film “Sleeping Beauty.”
Add in her role as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, and all of her humanitarian efforts, and Angelina Jolie’s life is both blessed and busy!
Bringing her camera-friendly self to another front page, Gwyneth Paltrow covers the February 2012 issue of Australia’s Fair Lady magazine.
The Oscar-winning actress looks adorable in the Mario Testino shot feature with the publication’s tagline underneath Gwyn simply reading “Pretty Perfect”.

On singing live at the Country Music Awards:
“Before I did it I was dying. I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I was like, ‘Why would I say yes to this? What is wrong with me? What kind of maniac would agree to do this?’”
On her work-out routine:
“I really work my ass off. I mean, I eat like this – I eat whatever I want – so I don’t have a choice. But it’s worth it. You can’t eat whatever you want and be 38 and have two kids and look really good unless you just put the time in and fo it.”
On English people:
“They’re really laid-back and calm. Beyonce did the school run with me once and everyone was fine.”
She’s always put her heartbreak into her songs, but Taylor Swift is finding herself at a loss for material as of late.
The “Love Story” songstress admitted in her Vogue February 2012 cover story that she hasn’t had any messy breakups as of late.
Taylor shared, “I got nothing going on! I just don’t really feel like dating. I really have this great life right now.”
Over the holidays last month, Swift said she was grateful for her singlehood- “I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I’m really stoked about that.”
As for the lessons she’s learned, Taylor explained, “If someone doesn’t seem to want to get to know me as a person but instead seems to have kind of bought into the whole idea of me and he approves of my Wikipedia page? And falls in love based on zero hours spent with me? That’s maybe something to be aware of. That will fade fast. You can’t be in love with a Google search. If a dude is threatened by the fact that I need security, if they make me feel like I am some sort of princessy diva–that’s a bad sign.”
