She's long been considered one of Hollywood's bombshells, but at home, Scarlett Johansson relishes being a domestic goddess.

"He loves to eat," the May cover girl tells InStyle of playing wife and cooking for husband Ryan Reynolds.

"I like cooking alone – I find it very therapeutic," she says. "I put on some music, maybe have a glass of wine, and make something like a turkey Bolognese or a nice frittata."

Though the 25-year-old continues to remain tight-lipped when discussing Reynolds, Johansson does open up about the changes in her life after 18 months of marriage.

"I mean, you're married and suddenly you have your own family," she says. "There's a nice comfort in that. That part of your life is certain, in a way. You've got your home in that other person."

Johansson's Iron Man 2 costar, Robert Downey Jr., couldn't agree more.

"I'm crazy about Ryan. I think they're a great couple, a really natural fit for each other," he says. "They've really come into themselves since they've been fully together."
