Scarlett Johansson Talks Divorce, Social Media And Her Obsession With RuPaul’s Drag Race


In the May issue of Marie Claire, Scarlett Johansson shares her favourite reality show and talks about her divorce, her extreme dislike for social media oversharing, and dishes on what she won’t tolerate in a man. 


How she spends her downtime: “I’ve been obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race. I love the makeup, I love the hair, I love the looks. That’s been my escape.”

On social media: “All of it drives me crazy. I don’t understand this need to ‘share.’ We almost exploit ourselves in order to feel seen.”

If she ran the world: “I would demand investment in finding and using renewable resources. Then I was thinking about other things, like cab stealing. I always say, ‘You want it that bad, go ahead.’ And they’re usually like, ‘F**k you!’”

On her divorce from Ryan Reynolds in 2010: “Well, it wasn’t that long ago. But I think I’ve had a fair amount of time to process the experience and be able to move forward. I continue to get to know myself better as I get older, and that helps me in my relationships.”

On something a man can’t do around her: “I don’t like jealous behaviour. I don’t mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it’s really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity that is…Oh, controlling behaviour is awful. Nobody’s going to say they love that.”
