Scarlett Johansson opened up about last year's nude photo hacking scandal and her divorce from ex-husband Ryan Reynolds in a new interview. After all she's been though, she says she refuses to be a "victim."
Scarlett Johansson, otherwise known by her much-disliked nickname "ScarJo," told Vogue magazine that the nude photos she had taken and sent to then-husband Ryan Reynolds were leaked, and that the experience had her "paranoid," even victimized.
"When all those photos came out, of course I go out to dinner and think … these people have all seen my…" she trailed off, not fully acknowledging the painful memory. "That's terrible. You know what I mean? You can't not think that. Even if they haven't you're paranoid."
Making matters worse was that the photos- as private as they were- were for someone whom she was no longer with. The 2011 scandal took place nearly a year after the two first filed for divorce in December of 2010.
"Of course, it's horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. … [Divorce] is like the loneliest thing you'll ever do, in some way," the Hollywood star admitted.
After the pain and hurt though, Johansson said she refused to be a victim to the photos or feeling sad about the divorce.
"I don't want to be a victim and say, 'Oh, well' and just hide my head in shame," said ScarJo, adding that she and Ryan Reynolds remain "comically amicable" after the split.
After the tough break-up rumors surfaced of Johansson dating actor Sean Penn, a man 24 years her senior. Photos surfaced of the pair together, and while ScarJo called him a "remarkable" person, her rebound didn't last too long.
These days, the 27-year-old star is linked to "Mad Men" director Nate Taylor, and she says the new boyfriend takes some getting used to.
"It's totally bizarre. It's an adjustment- I mean, it's got to be an adjustment for him way more than it was for me at 19. But he's really remarkably good about it," she revealed.
Scarlett Johansson is set to reprise her role as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Natasha Romanoff in the upcoming blockbuster "The Avengers," set to be released May 4.
