One case in point was at the London premiere of Newly Single: Earlier this month, Scarlett filed for divorce from her husband of two years.
While the Hollywood stars have starred together in several Marvel movies including , some admirers have always wondered if these two could turn into more than friends.
Fans totally get if they need some time to heal their hearts.
But when they're ready, they may have found their future plus one.
Four-fifty on a Thursday afternoon, deep in a shadowy bar at a hotel called the Nomad, downtown Manhattan, and Scarlett Johansson actually wants to write. And it's not like I'm always in a beautiful place wearing something gorgeous. "You have to watch out."I tell her: "Not these goats. Horses and cows — all good.""I don't have much experience with those animals.""It could be worse. That is some ugly business.""They need dust baths," I tell her. ""My impression was this keeps them clean.""Geese are mean," she says.
I give her a little hotel pad, maybe four-by-six, which she grabs in her small, ringless fingers. I've stood around bogs wearing half a million dollars' worth of jewelry, up to my knees in the rot, thinking how much more or less the place smelled like a sewer than it did the day before. I'm a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right? "Pretty soon the roles you're offered all become mothers. I have to hedge against that with work—theater, producing, this thing with Esquire."Then, as if she hears herself, she looks straight at me and says: "Sounds pretty bloodless, I guess."She'll spend her vacation on the beach in the Hamptons, in a house she rents with friends. "She smiles wryly and speaks softly, unruffled and clear. "Not like Ikea."Pretty soon, we've sat there for more than an hour. There's a guy two doors down from me who has four goats. He could have chickens.""True.""Chickens scare me," she says. "You gotta step a long way off from a goose."A moment goes by, then two, when, just like that, she claps her hands.
