Scarlett Johansson Never Thought She'd Get Married

There were plenty of people surprised by Scarlett Johansson's remote Canadian wedding to Ryan Reynolds last September – and you can count Scarlett among them.

"I never really thought about getting married – it just kind of happened," the actress, 25, tells Glamour for its November issue, hitting newsstands Oct. 6. "It seemed natural, the right thing to do. It was kind of a celebration of the time."


But Johansson says she likes the feeling, even if she doesn't feel all that different. "I think the only difference is that I'm kind of making my own little family now, which is funny," she says. "It’s like a little bit of a tribe. You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself."

Terrible Stage Fright

Other changes could also be on the horizon, she indicated, though she'd first have to overcome a personal hang-up or two. "I would love to work on Broadway, but I don’t know that it would manifest itself in musical theater ... I have terrible stage fright that I'd have to get over," she says. "It came on when I was a teenager, and I think it somehow sticks with you."

It even strikes when she's at her most glamorous, she admits.

"I love to get ready for the red carpet, but being on it is very uncomfortable. It's so freakish and weird," she says. "I get flop sweats, dry mouth, heart palpitations, all-over panic! I did this movie with John Travolta, and every time I looked over at John on the red carpet, he looked so fabulous. So I said to him, 'What do you do?' And he said, 'I go to Hawaii in my mind.' "

As for the future, "You never know. I might open my own bakery!" she says with a laugh before admitting, "The thing is, I don't know how to do anything else, other than things that relate to film … I don't know anything except for movies, other than some Trivial Pursuit kind of information."
