Scarlett Johansson is the cover girl for the December issue of Vanity Fair where the actress talks about her recent nude photo scandal, her divorce from Ryan Reynolds and campaigning for Barack Obama.
On the nude photos that hit the web: “I know my best angles. Those are old, from three years ago, they were sent to my husband. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno. Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
On her divorce from Ryan Reynolds: “I didn’t really know what to do with myself. It was such a strange time. There was nothing that was interesting to me. I had a very public separation. It was difficult. I felt very uncomfortable.”
On campaigning for Barack Obama and the president’s administration being a disappointment so far: “When we were stumping for him, part of his platform was his wish to bring both parties together. People wanted to end this partisanship and thought we’d all hold hands and dance around the Maypole. But it doesn’t work like that…We’re all guilty of being idealists, I and everyone who voted for him.”
On her strange friendship with Woody Allen: “He shakes a lot of hands. I’ll squirt some [Purell] in my hand and then squirt in his. The only reason why Woody and I are still friends is because I’ve diagnosed all kinds of his skin tags, lesions, ailments. I’ve prescribed things for Woody that he’s then asked his doctor to prescribe for him.”
On having kids and the future: “I wonder if there’s even going to be space for my kids. Somebody, I just read the other day, wrote their own obituary. I think that’s a great idea…Why not get a head start?”
