Scarlett Johansson May Put Off WeddingBy: Amanda Crum - August 1, 2014
Scarlett Johansson is a busy lady these days; between her roles in Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Lucy–which beat out Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Hercules at the box office last weekend with an impressive haul of over $40 million–and preparing for the birth of her first child, she has a lot on her plate. That may be why she’s reportedly going to postpone a wedding to beau Romain Dauriac.
The couple have kept a low profile since news of the star’s pregnancy first broke, with Johansson taking a break from Comic Con this year, and according to a source, she’s putting off a wedding until after the baby is born.
“She is telling friends that she is not getting married until after the baby,” the source said.
According to a rep for the actress, the couple have definitely not set a date, although the star has spoken out in the past about the media being so invasive when it comes to her personal life so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if she was keeping things under wraps on purpose.
“Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever, doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy. I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong,” she said in 2011.
Johansson recently won a lawsuit against a French author who used her name and described her image in his book La Premiere Chose Qu’on Regarde (The First Thing We Look At); Gregoire Delacourt says it wasn’t meant to be anything but praise to the actress, even though the character in his book is compared to the actress and is then treated like a sex object throughout.
“It was meant as the highest praise. She is an archetypal beauty of our times, very human with a touching fragility. She is a wonderful, iconic actress. I was hoping that she might send me flowers because this book is, in a way, a declaration of love. If I had known she was going to kick up such a racket, I would have picked another actress,” he said.
Indeed, Johansson is so iconic that even a new haircut makes headlines; she was spotted out with her fiance recently with a new pixie ‘do.
