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.”
Spending the day laying out on a yacht, Scarlett Johansson was spotted soaking up the sun in a white bikini and getting close to a mystery man in Taormina, Italy on Monday (July 9).
After enjoying a float on the water, the “Avengers” actress made her way back to shore where she kept her face hidden behind a visor and sunglasses while covering up her bikini bod with a purple floral skirt and a grey racer-back tank top.
On the business front, Scarlett will get to please movie-goers yet again as Black Widow in the sequel to “The Avengers”, but this time she will be banking a lot more cash for the role.
According to the New York Post, the 27-year-old actress has been offered a record-breaking $20 million to squeeze back into that tight leather costume to reclaim her role for the Marvel film – which landed third spot on the global box office after bringing in over $1.355 billion in worldwide sales.

Making her way around the Big Apple, Scarlett Johansson was spotted hailing a taxi cab in Manhattan yesterday (May 29).
The “In Good Company” actress looked adorable in a springy floral print dress as she ran out into the street and hopped into the car before speeding off to her destination.
And though she’s been split from her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds since 2010, Scarlett only just listed the home they shared as a married couple.
Johansson and Reynolds are asking a handsome $3.65 million for the two-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Los Angeles. They bought it for $2.9 million.
We finally get a peek of the sexy Scarlett Johansson portraying her latest role in the film “Under the Skin.”
The 27-year-old actress looks fierce in a fur jacket while rocking a black bob as she gets into the mindset of an alien trapped in a human’s body.
Her new film is directed by Jonathan Glazer and depicts the story of an alien disguised as a beautiful woman who treks through remote destinations across the world in hopes to use sexuality to snare human prey.
She is highly successful, but over time her character becomes enthralled with the complexity of life on earth and her character begins to weaken.
It’s a big week for Scarlett Johansson – not only is her new film “The Avengers” hitting theaters on Friday, but today (May 2) she received her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The “In Good Company” chick looked thrilled as she took to the podium at the ceremony located on Hollywood Boulevard while joined by her superhero co-star Jeremy Renner.
In a recent interview, Scarlett discussed the honor of being given the star, and how it came to be. “I don’t know, actually. I think you’re nominated. There’s a committee… and, I guess, they nominate you and then you receive a star, which is very exciting for me. I was totally thrilled, of course, because I feel very nostalgic about that kind of thing. It’s a wonderful tradition and I felt like I finally made it. I really did! I was, like, ‘Wow! I’ve been in the industry for twenty years and I’ve worked since I was a kid.’ It felt like a big milestone.”
As for her ‘neighbors’ on the Walk of Fame, Ms. Johansson replied, “No, I’ve no idea. I’m hoping not be outside one of those horrible shops on Hollywood Boulevard somewhere. I don’t know how it works. But I’ll find out, I guess. I’ll be on the pavement with my hands and everything. It’s funny.”

As for getting the chance to play Black Widow again, Johansson recently told Total Film, “I love her. So putting on the outfit is like, “Ah, the old familiar friend.’ You have all this history to fall back on.”
She’s been quite active in the political arena as of late, and Scarlett Johansson spent Thursday night (April 5) hosting a Scott M. Stringer 2013 Mayoral Campaign Fundraiser in New York City.
The “We Bought a Zoo” actress joined alongside the Borough President of Manhattan at the Cabanas at the Maritime while welcoming guests in hopes of raking in a little extra cash for the upcoming election.
Previously voicing just why she backs Stringer, Miss Johnsson recently wrote, “Scott’s passionate vision for a better New York is inspiring. We share a love for this city’s diversity and culture.”
