Paula David – Fourth Estate Cooperative Reporter

Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Scarlett Johansson is the face of GQ magazine’s May issue and in the interview, she talked about the lessons she has learned both in life and love, and expressed that she finds her moniker “ScarJo” “insulting.”

Talking about the divorce in relation to her latest film “Her,” directed by Spike Jonze, she said, “When I started to talk with Spike about the film, we shared our relationship experiences. We talked about what it feels like to not have something work and what that does to your sense of self.”

About how the whole experience has made her a different person, the 29-year-old actress said, “I think I know myself better. I feel I know now more of what I need in a relationship, what I want in a relationship. And I know I have more tools to communicate, not just with my partner, but with myself. That’s not necessarily any reflection of who I was married to or what was happening in my marriage, but really where I was in my life.”

“When I was first married, I was much younger,” she added. “And I have had the opportunity now to work more on getting to know myself. I think that makes you a better partner and somebody who is able to work with somebody and stay in a relationship in the not-romantic moments. I have more patience with myself. I have more patience with my partner. I think that just comes with age, probably.”

During the photo shoot, the blonde beauty spoke out on why she does not like her nickname “ScarJo,” saying, “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant. And there’s something kind of violent about it. There’s something insulting about it.”

Meanwhile, on marriage with her fiance Romain Dauriac, with whom she is expecting her first child, she said, “We’re just going with the flow. I’ve never been one to do a full-on themed wedding. I don’t care about that stuff.”
