We all want our partners to care about us and be proud of being with us, but jealousy is not a good look when it makes you crazy. I should know because I’m a pretty jealous person in relationships (it’s something I’ve had to learn to keep in check, with varying levels of success) and no one wants to be with someone who smothers them and is constantly afraid their significant other is going to go out and find someone better. Keep accusing them of it and they’ll probably do exactly that. Anyway, this all seems like common sense for any adult human who’s been in more than one relationship, but Scarlett Johansson wants us to know that she, too, doesn’t like jealousy.
From Marie Claire:
“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,” she said.
“Oh, controlling behavior is awful. Nobody’s going to say they love that.”
That’s right, Scarlett. No one is going to say they like that – very astute observation.
I’m being hard on her, really – I don’t mind Scarlett Johansson and obviously she didn’t bring the topic up out of nowhere, she was asked about relationships (of course). Speaking of relationships, how does she feel about ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, who’s now re-married to Blake Lively?
“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.”

So yeah, Scarlett Johansson has been dating that French bro Romain Dauriac for a few months now, and since Lord knows women can’t date men without wanting them to put a ring on their finger with the quickness, it was only a matter of time before the engagement rumours started. The New York Daily News published the above photo and then zoomed in on it approximately 500x in order to spot some “engagement bling” on Scarlett’s pretty little hand:
Wow, that’s… conclusive. So, she’s wearing a ring on her wedding finger and she’s in a relationship. When’s the ceremony? I haven’t even bought my dress yet! Pfft. Even I have an “engagement ring” I wear out on the subway to keep weirdos from talking to me and just because I got it on Etsy and it’s pretty and I like it. That doesn’t mean you should cue up ‘Here Comes the Bride’ anytime soon.
Let’s not forget that Scarlett herself said a couple of months back that she never thinks about marriage (especially after her first with Ryan Reynolds ended) and she doesn’t really think tying the knot is all that important. Agreed! Someone can be your life partner without $15k going down the drain and a piece of paper deeming it so.
Because this is the world we live in, Scarlett’s rep had to speak out and debunk this bullshit, saying simply: “Scarlett is absolutely not engaged.”
Well, that clears that up.

Some sad news today: we could have been spared Anne Hathway‘s insufferable ego had Scarlett Johansson not bombed her Les Miserables audition. Yes, Ms. Johansson auditioned for the role that Anne “Holy F-ck Aren’t I Amazing?” Hathway won but effed it up and blames it on laryngitis. Yeah, okay Scarlett. You bombed your audition because you had laryngitis. Like the producers and casting directors wouldn’t say, “No problem, let’s try it again when you’re feeling better.” You’re Scarlett Johansson. You get more chances than most actors do. That’s what happens when you’re on the A-list. Perhaps your singing just wasn’t as good as Ms. Hathway’s. I mean, seriously. Seriously. Come on.
Ms. ScarJo is very gracious though and a great sport about losing the role to Anne “Everyone Loves Hearing Me Talk As Much As I Do” Hathway, saying,
I think looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped [her] performance. It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be. But, yes, the audition itself brought back so many memories of auditioning for Les Miz for the young Cosette, and it was fun for me to revisit that.
Johnasson is currently starring in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway. That Liz Taylor is so hot right now.

I feel like I’ve been transitioning from young woman into womanhood for a very long time. Now as I approach 30, with the last few years behind me, I feel like growing pains are behind me. It’s just nice to feel happy.
—Scarlett Johansson on what it’s like to hit thirty. Note: Scarlett Johansson is not yet thirty, nor will she be turning thirty this year. She actually just turned twenty-eight a few weeks ago, but hey. Who’s counting?
Someone, however, who will be turning thirty soon? Yours truly. Yup! 2013 is the big year—on June 13th of the new year, I’ll be thirty years old. No one asks *me* how I feel about entering my third decade as a human being, so I’m going to take the liberty and do it myself: I’m f-cking stoked! Thirty years! That’s some serious cause for celebration, you know? I never really understood the stigma attached to aging, and especially aging and women, but despite the fact that I roll my eyes pretty much whenever Scarlett Johansson opens her mouth, I have to agree with her about age—it is nice to feel happy, and it’s nice to just not worry about silly, petty shit that I might have otherwise gotten hung up on when I was turning twenty, or twenty-two, or even twenty-four. No, to be honest, when Scarlett Johansson opened her mouth this go ’round, I actually smiled—because I totally know what she means.
Get it, girl.

This would be Romain Dauriac, a “creative director” from France, and in the very next photo, he looks a little bit like Josh Hartnett (who was a former boyfriend of Scarlett’s), so I can see Scarlett getting past this top photo and boning him instead:
See? … And yeah, I know, right?
Sources close to the new couple are saying that it’s all still pretty new, but they’ve hit it off famously and a witness claims that the couple were out getting dinner in New York City earlier this week and were unable to keep their new love off the radar. The source says, “They were very lovey-dovey and holding hands under the table all night. They were holding each other while outside smoking in the cold.”
Aww, sweet. What could be more lovey-dovey than bonding over emphysema and other tobacco-related illnesses?
What do you think about Scarlett’s new man—a hit or a miss?

I don’t think I’ve ever rolled my eyes so hard in my whole entire life. “Lucky you,” really? Really, Scarlett Johansson? This is what you want on your body forever?
I don’t care if Scarlett here is super hot (which, duh, of course she is), this is just dumb. There’s a difference between being confident and being cocky, and there’s even a small area of cocky that’s ok as long as you can back it up, but this isn’t anywhere near that. This is cocky to the max. And it’s permanent. I can’t even get over this.
Also, it’s not even a good tattoo. Shouldn’t Scarlett Johansson be able to afford really good tattoos? If she’s going to get a dumb horseshoe on her ribs, she could at least be able to afford a tattoo artist who could center it properly, and probably she could afford one who does tattoos that don’t look like a doodle from a seven-year-old.
But what do you think? Do you love it?
