Scarlett Johansson.The actress opened up about riding solo due to her busy workschedule in an interview conducted before news broke of her divorce with ex-husband Romain Dauriac.
In an interview with Event Magazine, the Ghost in the Shell star explained constantly filming blockbusters means she's never really staying in one place — which can cause challenges in one's marriage.
The 32-year-old said that she travels so much, she doesn't even really have a permanent residence, admitting:
"I work a lot so I don't really live anywhere for very long periods of time. Sometimes I live in Paris for a couple of months, then I have a job some place and then I come back to New York. I guess my base is New York-ish, cause my family is here. But my husband's family is all in Paris so we try to spend a lot of time there also. Especially now that we have Rose."
Nowadays, ScarJo's plans are a bit different: she and Dauriac filed for divorce earlier this month, and she has filed for physical custody of their 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy.
Damn, Black Widow would be proud!
Though the interview took place before news of their split surfaced, the reporter noted that the actress referred to Dauriac as her "hubby," and she insisted the family will "all be in one place" once Rose starts going to school.
Johansson also confessed she had a history of entering relationships for the wrong reasons, like "not wanting to feel alone – or trying to fill some kind of space, or deal with the way I feel when I am in a crowd or suddenly on my own."
The Avengers star said she'd been doing some soul searching over the past few years, and realized she's "never actually been alone," in reference to her twin brother Hunter.
Apparently, all that self-reflection made the actress realize she's never been great at alone time. She explained:
"And in those first moments of life, even just the spark of it, having somebody else there must affect one, right? Because of that, I'm learning now how to be alone just with myself. But it's challenging. It doesn't mean that I don't feel alone at times or lonely, but I'm realizing that I've always had this other half out there."
Wow. In hindsight, these quotes are very telling! Was she preparing us for the inevitable blow of her breakup? Or maybe she was just prepping herself…
Either way, we hope Scarlett and Romain work out their custody drama and find a way to end things amicably.
