Scarlett Johansson seems to be taking the advice we got for celebs from CNET Internet security expert Declan McCullagh, “If you take nude photos of yourself or allow nude photos of yourself to be taken … either you embrace this (like Marilyn Monroe did) — this is part of you, part of your mystique — or you keep them encrypted on a hard drive that you, and not your boyfriend, hold the key to.”
So in her cover story interview for the December issue of Vanity Fair, she saucily declares of the nude pics that leaked in September: “I know my best angles. … They were sent to my husband [Ryan Reynolds]. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno. Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
Now that’s the kind of cool confidence we like to hear from our girl. But she wasn’t without her vulnerable moments too. She talks about how her divorce from Reynolds occurred when she was still recovering from an emotionally exhausting four-month stint on Broadway in A View From the Bridge.
“I didn’t really know what to do with myself,” she admitted to the magazine. “It was such a strange time. There was nothing that was interesting to me. I had a very public separation. It was difficult. I felt very uncomfortable.”
