Marie Claire – March 2017

In 2015, Scarlett Johansson was presenting at the Oscars, walking the red carpet in an emerald Atelier Versace gown and a dramatic matching Swarovski necklace. But she was more concerned with another accessory. “I had to bring my breast pump, because I was nursing and every ounce is like liquid gold,” says the actress, who had given birth to her daughter, Rose, five months earlier. After the ceremony, she reunited with it in the company of mutual friends Kelly Ripa and her husband, Mark Consuelos, but not for long.

“Somehow, Mark got ahold of my breast pump—in a bag with all the milk, ice packs in there, and shit. He grabbed it out of my hand,” Johansson recalls. He was just trying to help, she explains, “but our cars got separated. Apparently, Kelly looked over, and she was like, ‘Wait a minute—is that Scarlett’s breast pump? We’ve got to get it back!’ because she knew how panicked I would be. We finally ended up at the same party three hours later, and Mark was like, ‘I’m so sorry.'”

Johansson, 32, laughs her throaty laugh and takes a sip of rooibos tea. Sitting with her in the Gotham Lounge at The Peninsula hotel in Manhattan, it’s hard not to feel a sense of kinship. Minutes ago, I was pumping in the hotel bathroom—she told her story in solidarity. “It’s very humbling,” she says of motherhood. When I absentmindedly shift around my maternity bra, she asks, “How’s your boobs? Are they square? That was always my favorite.”

For someone who has spent the past several years playing a superhero in Marvel’s Avengers franchises, Johansson is refreshingly human. “Sorry I look like such a hobo,” she says. Having just wrapped a USO tour with stops in Turkey, Qatar, and Afghanistan, the actress arrives with a stuffy nose, wearing Levi’s jeans, large-frame glasses, Adidas Superstars, and a Yankees cap. She looks more like your cool girlfriend than a movie-star goddess. But don’t be fooled: She is the latter.

Here, a few highlights from our interview, in our March issue on newsstands February 14:

On the controversy surrounding her casting as the lead in Ghost in a Shell:
“I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive. Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders.”

On being the highest-grossing actress in Hollywood history:
“Just because I’m the top-grossing actress of all time does not mean I’m the highest paid. I’ve had to fight for everything that I have. It’s such a fickle and political industry.”

On being reluctant to discuss the wage gap:
“Some people felt I should talk about my personal struggle in order to shed a spotlight on the greater issue. Maybe I’m being presumptuous, but I assumed it was obvious that women in all positions struggle for equality. It’s always an uphill battle and fight. My experience with my close female friends and family is that the struggle is real for everybody. Everyone has been discriminated against or harassed—sexism is real.”

On her daughter watching her in movies:
“I don’t think she’s allowed to see any of the movies I’ve made, other than Sing. I’ll be happy when she’s old enough to show her movies where I kicked some a**.”

On no subject being off-limits with her friends:
“I want to talk about what’s happening with your vagina. I want to know why it hates you or whatever. I want to compare and contrast notes. I want to talk about sex and all that stuff.”

On celebrities being vocal about politics:
“[I believe] that it is really important to hear people in various positions of power voice their opinions, their story. Why not? Why can’t I have the voice? Why can’t I use my platform? What’s the point of having it if you don’t use it? If you don’t want to get involved, please, the noise is loud enough. But if you’ve got something to say, say it.”

Scarlett Johansson, America Ferrera and More Join Women’s March on Washington

One day after President-Elect Donald Trump is sworn into office next Friday, Debra Messing, Cher, Scarlett Johansson and more will join the Women’s March on Washington, D.C.

The Women’s March on Washington will take place Jan. 21 and features partners including GLAAD, Planned Parenthood and Amnesty International.

Other notable celebrities joining the march are America Ferrera, Patricia Arquette, Danielle Brooks, Julianne Moore, Amy Schumer and Katy Perry, an official press release for the event reads. More than 100,000 are expected to attend.

“Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard,” said Ferrera, who was announced today as the artist table chair for the march. “As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities.”

The mission of the march is to shine a light on people of all faiths, races, colors and disabilities, in addition to the rights of women, the march’s website reads.

“This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society,” the website adds.

The marches won’t just be happening in the nation’s capital either. Chelsea Handler will be leading a “solidarity” march in Park City, Utah, at the Sundance Film Festival, which opens the same weekend. There will be more than 150 other “sister” marches nationwide — with at least one in each of the 50 states, according to the press release.

A request for comment from Trump’s spokeswoman was not immediately returned to ABC News.

Scarlett Johansson named ‘top grossing’ actor by Forbes

A massive congratulations to Scarlett for all the hand work she did to make this happen.

Her movies, including Captain America: Civil War and the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar!, earned $1.2bn (£978m) globally over the past 12 months.

Johansson’s Marvel co-stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr tied for second place with $1.15bn (£938m) each.
Last year, the list was topped by Chris Pratt while, in 2014, Jennifer Lawrence took the top honours.

Forbes curates the annual list by adding up global ticket sales using data from analysis site Box Office Mojo.
Animated movies, where only actors’ voices were used, are not included and only top-billed performances are counted.

Johansson is joined in the top five by two other actresses – Australian Margot Robbie, who starred in the successful yet critically mauled Suicide Squad, which grossed $746m ($609m) worldwide, and Amy Adams.

Adams earns her place through her current film, sci-fi hit Arrival, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which she played Lois Lane.
British actress Felicity Jones made her debut on the list after making $805m (£656m) thanks, largely, to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, only released earlier this month.

She also starred in fantasy film drama A Monster Calls and alongside Tom Hanks in Inferno.

Scarlett Johansson: ‘Admitting That You’re Vulnerable Is a Very Powerful Thing’

The movie business is changing. Women have become increasingly visible as directors (Kathryn Bigelow, Lisa Cholodenko, Ava DuVernay) and successful producers (Reese Witherspoon’s production company Pacific Standard scored huge hits with “Gone Girl” and “Wild”; Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy won an Oscar in 2016 for the documentary short “A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness”). Yet many actresses are still paid less than their male peers, and the Academy Awards of 2016 were widely criticized for the lack of nonwhite nominees.

Only a few A-list actresses have been celebrated for their ability to throw punches or show menace on the screen, but that’s beginning to change as well. Scarlett Johansson, 32, received critical acclaim for her role as an alien on the hunt in “Under the Skin” and will appear in 2017 as a crime-fighting policewoman in “Ghost in the Shell.” Her superstar turn as the Black Widow in “The Avengers” series has helped to make her the highest-grossing actress of all time, pulling in over $3.3 billion for movie studios, according to Box Office Mojo. Still, as of this fall, she was the only woman in the top 20 on Mojo’s list.

In an interview, Ms. Johansson discusses how women’s roles in real life are changing their roles in film. The conversation has been edited and abridged.

Q. The world has watched you grow up on screen — you started so early. Over the course of that time, the roles available to women in real life have changed a lot. Is the process of filmmaking starting to reflect that?
Johansson: We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set. If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women. Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips.

In the job that I’m on now, “Rock That Body,” there are a number of women working as crew members, as opposed to many other productions that I’ve been on.

Is this changing the experience of acting for you?
Johansson: It’s nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn’t become so one-note — to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment.

At this point in your career, what draws you to a role?
Johansson: I’ve always had the same principle for choosing roles, which is to try and make movies that I would pay to see. As I get older that’s meant different things.

I’ve never been a superhero-comic fan exactly. I did “Iron Man 2” because I loved what [the director Jon] Favreau did with “Iron Man.” It spoke to me as someone who was not a fan of that genre, and I saw a future in building a character with Marvel.

The idea of doing a franchise was exciting — being able to play a character over many installments, the challenge of playing a character who had a built-in fan base, and trying to put my stamp on that character.

Some of the roles that you choose are very different, like in “Under the Skin” — your predatory alien uses the men’s sexuality against them, but she’s not particularly flirtatious. Is it important to you to try these things?It sounds like you like a challenge.
Johansson: I’ve always been very competitive, and a part of that is pushing your boundaries — taking a risk, and being able to live with the loss that comes with taking a risk.

In your work as the Black Widow in “The Avengers,” we see your ability to convey vulnerability despite the character’s strength.
Johansson: Admitting that you’re vulnerable is a very powerful thing. There’s something to be said for a character having a quiet strength about them.

So many contradictory things make up a multidimensional personality. Breathing life into a character means celebrating and recognizing the fullness of them — that you can be a lot of things at one time, that it doesn’t have to be black or white.

With more women on set, do you think you have more flexibility to explore all the dimensions of the character?
Johansson: Maybe the audience is more open to these richer character storylines than they were before, so there’s more of an opportunity to bring that to the screen. They want to see things that reflect the experiences that they’re having. As a culture we may be becoming more accepting of differences and of the full spectrum that life gives us.

When you see films from 50 years ago, the characters reflected what people wanted to project to the world, which was very black and white and guarded, or idealistic or whatever. It’s not that way anymore. The films that have a better audience reaction now are the ones where the characters are flawed. And I think that’s why [the “Avengers” writer and director] Joss Whedon has been so successful in that realm, because he loves the flaws, he celebrates them. He likes to pick apart their weaknesses.

What experiences would you like to create for your daughter on screen?
Johansson: My daughter is still young. Right now I think we both share the dream that I will someday be a Disney princess, but it’s probably not going to happen. I’ve been asking for that job for the past 20 years, and nobody has booked me.

Scarlett Johansson 10 Questions Q&A with IGN

When Scarlett was in Tokyo for the Ghost In The Shell event she did some interviews with people one of them was ING were she answers 10 questions from fan’s including who would win in a fight between Black Widow and The Major you can watch to see what she said on it.

Scarlett Is A Part Of “IMPORTANT – Save The Day – Vote”

Your time is up, Mr Trump. The Avengers are now on your case.

Director Joss Whedon rather sensationally returned to Twitter yesterday after 19 months away from social media, with a blazing attack on Donald Trump.

Bringing together a whole raft of famous people – including Scarlett and two of her Avenger co-stars – he has appealed for US voters, and those who are currently unregistered, to make sure that Donald Trump does not make it into the highest office in the world.

He also promises that Mark Ruffalo will appear fully nude in his next movie if everyone clubs together to keep Trump away from the presidency.

So there’s that too.

Whedon told Buzzfeed:

“It’s about targeting people who either aren’t going to vote or have been anaesthetised out of voting – fighting the sort of apathy and cynicism that says, ‘It doesn’t matter if I vote’.

“[It] matters more than any single thing you’re going to do in the next two years. It’s the exact definition of democracy. It is a heroic and necessary act.”

As for plumbing his contacts for people to appear in the video, he added: “There is almost nobody that I wouldn’t approach to say, ‘If you can pitch in, do it now’.

“It was pretty much the same spiel to everybody: ‘Doing a voting PSA to help get out the vote and stop orange Muppet Hitler’.

“At least one person was like, ‘I didn’t expect this to be quite so partisan. I don’t want to alienate half my fan base.’ But nobody backed out. In general, everyone was very comfortable with what we were doing.”

Scarlett Johansson Named Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Actress of All Time

Scarlett Johansson is queen of the box office.

The actress’ movies, which include the “Avengers” franchise, have raked in a record-breaking $3.3 billion at the North American box office, according to Box Office Mojo.

The tracking site ranks Johansson 10th overall, beating out male stars like Robert De Niro, Matt Damon and action-movie favorites Bruce Willis and Liam Neeson.

This year alone, her films “The Jungle Book” and “Captain America: Civil War” have grossed $358.4 million and $404.3 million respectively at the domestic box office. Her highest grossing movie is “The Avengers,” which is also the fifth highest grossing movie of all time in the United States, with $623.4 million.

At 31, she is the youngest actor appearing in the top 10, but she’s also the only woman. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Johansson spoke about the Hollywood gender wage gap.

“There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole,” Johansson told the magazine. “I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage… I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”

The next highest grossing actress is Cameron Diaz, who comes in at the 19th spot on the list. Her movies, which include the highly successful “Shrek” franchise, have grossed $3 billion, not far behind Johansson.

Harrison Ford holds the top spot. His movies add up to $4.8 billion with the most recent “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as his most lucrative film.

Next up, Johansson will star in the anime adaptation of “Ghost in a Shell,” which has already received criticism for white-washed casting. She’ll also star in “Rock that Body.” Both are set for 2017.

Q&A: Scarlett Johansson Talks the Holidays & Her Family

Scarlett Johansson has always been an icon for old Hollywood glamour, so her representation of the Dolce & Gabbana beauty line is a perfect fit. And the brand is now releasing a limited edition scent for the holidays, The One Essence, and bringing Johansson back into the family fold for an exclusive Holiday video promoting the fragrance with her longtime D&G co-star Matthew McConaughey.

To go along with the holiday campaign and video, ScarJo has shared some of her favourite Christmas memories and traditions with us:

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SCENT?
“I think of vanilla as being a Christmas scent because my family cooks a Christmas pudding every year that is like a tapioca kind of pudding, with warm fruit sauce. It cooks for the entire day before and the entire house smells of fresh vanilla. So it is a very Christmassy scent to me.”

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS ATMOSPHERE?
My favourite Christmas atmosphere is a very cosy one because my family usually stays in their pyjamas all day, cooks in their pyjamas, and then, you know, at night we might change into something comfortable. It’s a very warm and cosy family atmosphere that we have for Christmas. Just comfortable, no stress, no crazy dressing up so everybody is very relaxed.”

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS MEMORY?
“My favourite Christmas memory is lying with my sister underneath the Christmas tree with all the lights and the ornaments. I remember that being super magical, the way it looked, and just talking with my sister about what we thought we were going to get for Christmas.”

Scarlett Tells Stylist What Makes Her Tick

She’s world famous yet incredibly private; effortlessly cool but secretly down-to-earth. Stylist meets the actress to discover what makes her tick.

Of all the things Stylist expected Scarlett Johansson to be into, RuPaul’s Drag Race was not one of them. See also cooking meatloaf and fan-girling over Clive Owen. But then, how much do we really know about the Hollywood star? She’s beguiled critics, audiences and co-stars alike since her big breakout in the late Nineties in The Horse Whisperer. Career-defining roles in Lost In Translation and Vicky Cristina Barcelona followed, leading to her current straddling of both the blockbuster world – starring in the Marvel franchise – and the arthouse with films like Under The Skin.

Yet she has managed to keep her private world just that. We know little of the life she shares with her French husband Romain Dauriac, a creative advertising exec, and their baby Rose Dorothy, living between Paris and New York. But the career choices she makes and her political advocacy – she’s campaigned for the Democrats in three elections now – suggest a smart, cultured and passionate mind. One that we wanted to know more about.

When Stylist meets 30-year-old Johansson she’s dressed in a sharp black trouser suit, her short crop swished to the side, New Romantic style. She wears a cluster of rings and a charm bracelet tattoo on her wrist – you have to squint to see the slogan it bears: ‘I Heart NY’. It’s a discreet declaration, but one that offers a tantalising glimpse behind the scenes.

In conversation. Johansson is equal parts fun and serious. Particularly striking is how she concentrates on you; studying your mannerisms as much as you do hers. This observational skill is one of the qualities that marks out every part she takes on, not least in her current role as Black Widow in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which she has built up into a truly three dimensional character since joining the Marvel family in 2010.

So, what lies behind the on-screen heroics? What are Johansson’s real life passions? Here, she tells Stylist what really makes her happy.

My TV Obsessions: I love RuPaul’s Drag Race. The show is delightful. That’s the guilty pleasure. I love [US chef] Anthony Bourdain. He has a great travel show called Parts Unknown. He’s my favourite. What else is on my ‘to watch’ list? I’m waiting for the second season of [historic drama] The Knick. Clive Owen is amazing. I totally geeked out when I saw him at a party recently. I was over-zealous. I’d met him before but this time I was like [frantically], “I just have to tell you I love you, oh my god.” I was talking about the season and what’s going to happen next. He must think I’m a freak.

My happy place: I love New Orleans. It’s such a great city, it’s magical. The people are warm, unique and artistic and the food is delicious. Walking around the French Quarter is like being in a Tennessee Williams play. Magazine Street is great; there are so many cool stores and you can stop and get a po’ boy [laughs] – it’s a huge sandwich, it’s local food. The most surprising place I’ve ever visited is Moscow. I never expected it to look the way that it did.

Scarlett Johansson says she’s considering cutting back on acting jobs after becoming a mother for the first time last year

Scarlett Johansson was busy proving that her figure hadn’t changed since motherhood, on Sunday.
But things in the acting world might be about to alter, after the 30-year-old Avengers Assemble star said she’s considering cutting back her workload now that she’s a mother.
Scarlett had her first child, Rose, with husband Romain Dauriac seven months ago and has admitted that her priorities have changed.

Scarlett appeared to have snapped back into pre-baby shape when she was seen at the MTV Movie Awards 2015 in Los Angeles on Sunday night, a rare night off from mummy duties.

Speaking to the Australian Daily Telegraph on Monday, the beauty said her schedule has definitely been affected since the birth in October 2014.
She said: ‘I have a greater responsibility now so that will definitely affect my schedule. Before (Rose), I just made the choices that were affecting me but now I’m responsible for somebody else. Eventually I will have to work less and it might even make me more discerning.’

‘We’ll see,’ she continued. ‘But I think having any kind of huge life-changing event happen to you, such as having children, and it’s such a different life now in the best possible way, is very, very inspiring.
‘I think it will hopefully enrich my work as well as my understanding of myself. That’s the hope anyway, you never know.’
The blonde bombshell said she was reluctant to make a ‘grandiose’ statement about motherhood, adding that it’s a personal experience – something she’s still a ‘newbie’ at.

The actress currently has two movies in pre-production for 2016 (Ghost in the Shell and Captain America: Civil War) and she is also filming The Jungle Book at the moment.
Scarlett released four films in 2014 and three the year before, and 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is due on May 1.
The first clip for the second in the franchise, in which Scarlett plays Natasha Romanoff, was shown at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards.
In the clip, it appears that Iron Man and the Hulk – usually on the same side – will fight against each other even thought its Ultron that the Avengers should be trying to foil.

Scarlett Johansson Married Romain Dauriac in Secret Ceremony

Scarlett Johansson is a married woman, but she has been keeping it a secret.

The 30-year-old actress married her French journalist beau Romain Dauriac, 32, on Oct. 1 in a private ceremony in Philipsburg, Mont., a clerk at Granite County confirms to ET.

The nuptials came roughly one month after Johansson gave birth to their daughter Rose on Sept. 4.

A second wedding band was seen on Johansson at the 2nd annual Champions of Rockaway Hurricane Sandy Benefit in New York City on Nov. 19 fueling rumors that she in fact was already married.

The couple has been together since 2012, and they were engaged in August 2013. There was speculation in August this year that she would marry before the baby was born.

The Avengers actress told Parade at the beginning of the year that she did not want to “rush that part of her life.”

This has been a big year for the actress as she not only had a baby and got married, but she’s had a successful career year as well with her starring roles in box office hits Lucy and Captain America.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
