Scarlett Johansson Elle UK

Scarlett Johansson graces the cover of Elle UK’s February 2013 issue wearing a Victoria Beckham Spring 2013 white dress with the leather Manolo Blahnik for Victoria Beckham peep-toe booties which also took to the runway back in September.

Rankin captured the Avengers star wearing a variety of other Spring 2013 designs from Jonathan Saunders, Tom Ford and Burberry Prorsum.

In her interview, ScarJo talks about her bombshell status, marriage and her perfect New York night.

You can read the full interview in Elle UK which is out now, and you can read some of the extracts below.

On her former marriage to Ryan Reynolds: “I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married… I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me, ‘Would I get married again?’”

On having kids one day: “It’s really not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now. I’m not having kids anytime soon, I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot, and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”

On her status as a sex symbol: “I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super sexualized. I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young. I’ve always been curvy. It runs in the family. Throw on an evening frock and it’s like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like: ‘bombshell!’ Instantly it was: ‘The new Marilyn [Monroe].’”
