Scarlett Johansson: Nude Photos Were for Ryan Reynolds

I knew it. Scarlett Johansson says that the nude photos of her that were leaked were only intended for Ryan Reynolds eyes. While I thought they were “look at what you’re missing out on, are you sorry you divorced me?” photos, the actress tells Vanity Fair that the photos were for her husband at-the-time.

“They were sent to my husband. There’s nothing wrong with that,” says Johansson.

She also adds that, “I know my best angles.” Meaning, a nude self-portrait was a better option than say, going on down to JC Penney for a naked photo sitting?

She also wonders why the nude photo thing was a scandal anyways. “It’s not like I was shooting a porno,” she confesses, “Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”

She also adds something vague that I think alludes to the whole “hacking emails/phones” scandal.

“There’s no such thing as an aura of mystery anymore. It doesn’t exist. That’s a thing of the past,” she reveals.

I think what she’s saying is that the public should wonder what nude ScarJo looks like, not actually see it. Now she’s just like one of those 10 cent hussies on the side of those Girls Girls Girls cards that litter the streets of Las Vegas. Mystery, revealed.

In related news, the guy who leaked Scarlet’s photos by hacking into her email and the emails of countless other Hollywood starlets is appearing in court in LA later today. If convicted, he could face up to 121 years in federal prison. Damn. 

But back to ScarJo. While her nude photo shoot for Ryan Reynolds suggested that things were good at one point, we know how that relationship ended.

Johansson says after the divorce she stepped into a bit of a depression.

“I didn’t really know what to do with myself. 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,” she admits.

Well she must have found Sean Penn interesting because she happily fell into his open arms. That’s what I like to call a “WTF rebound,” I don’t know if she was trying to make Ryan jealous with some kind of “daddy issues” thing, but I’m glad that relationship ended.

Though her high-profile celebrity may be finally catching up to her. The 26-year-old starlet (are you as surprised as I am whenever you hear that she isn’t like 35?) has said she would like to move away from the limelight.

“I would like to direct. I’d be happy to work behind the camera, forever.”
