Scarlett Johansson: Having Kids and Getting Married 'Has No Relevance to Me Right Now.'

Illustration for article titled Scarlett Johansson: Having Kids and Getting Married Has No Relevance to Me Right Now.

I love Scarlett Johansson because she speaks her mind, and it seems she's very savvy about the Hollywood machine. Plus, like every woman around my age ever, I feel like she and Thora Birch embodied teenage me in Ghost World. I don't care that they were cuter or much more clever, they were me, and I know you feel the same way!


In the February issue of Elle UK, the 28-year-old ScarJo dishes on marriage and babies, as that is what women are asked about*.

"I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually," she recalls. "But it is different. It's hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn't mean you have to be married."



She continues, "I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me, ‘Would I get married again?'"

As far as popping out some Bebe's Kids, Johansson says she's "not having kids any time soon" and the idea of starting a family right now is "not important to me."

"I feel you, girl!" says many other 28-year-old women. Maybe it's because I'm from San Francisco, but I don't know many 28-year-olds who have kids. In fact, my first close friend to get pregnant did so when she was 32 years old and I was like, "BABIES HAVING BABIES."


Point is, I relate.

*No mention is made in the Gossip Cop recap about how she maintains her bod and what it's like to be sexxxy in sex scenes, we'll probably have to wait for the full interview to read about that!

She may feel differently when she's 41 and spending tens of thousands of dollars on invitro trying to get pregnant.

Nobody says you have to get married and knocked up by 21, but some folks on here seem to be suffering from prolonged adult adolescence.....
