In the interview for the cover story ‘Scarlett Johansson: Back in Stride’ by Jason Gay, the actress and singer spoke candidly on a range of topics from reflecting upon her early rise to success to her past year of personal challenges and resultant media attention and invasion of privacy.
On her Broadway debut in Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge, and going on to win a Tony Award.
It was exhausting, but Johansson embraced Broadway life; at another lunch, in a health-food restaurant in SoHo, she talks nostalgically of the “underbelly of Times Square,” hanging out by the stage door with the crew, and even the time a stage manager bawled her out for being late to rehearsal (she was never late again). “I know it sounds supercorny, but it was a dream come true,” she says. “That sort of pressure of having to deliver—I just find it thrilling.”
On her divorce from Ryan Reynolds:
“Johansson describes it as “comically amicable,” but the parting was far from painless. “It was horrible,” she says. “Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out.
“This was something I never thought I would be doing,” she continues. “And there’s no way to navigate it. Nobody can give you the right answer. It’s never anything you want to hear. It’s a very lonely thing. It’s like the loneliest thing you’ll ever do, in some way.”
