So, right now, Scarlett Johansson is rocking her role as a single mom — but according to an article written in May 2019 by People magazine, Johansson and SNL actor Colin Jost announced they are engaged after two years of dating.

Scarlett Johansson is an avid supporter of body-positivity.

Back in 2014 for a Vanity Fair article, Johansson, along with fellow actress Kate Winslet, posted a photo of herself without any makeup or her hair done to show that even she is human and like everyone else.


In this post, she stated,

"Behind the glamour, behind the make up, behind all those flashy clothes, there’s an ordinary girl who just happens to have an extra ordinary job. I have seen young girls follow celebrities and try to be one of them. They try to attain perfection, have the perfect body, perfect skin tone. They aren’t fully aware of the fact that behind the looks there are a lot of designers, make up artists, and photoshop/video editing. Their whole sense of beauty is flawed. There is no good to looking good if you are conscious all the time about how you look. You should be care free. Love the real you. The way you are so that even if you are without makeup, you can look into the mirror and with a big smile embrace your imperfections. Just imagine if you don’t even love yourself how do you expect anyone to love you. So first and foremost learn to love yourself by being who you are and not what the world wants you to be. All you need to do is have a great heart and be compassionate towards others. I hope you spread the message and let the world know that you value inner beauty more than the outer appearance.“

So, yes, even an actress that was chosen as the "Sexiest Woman Alive" twice — once in 2006, and then again in 2013 — is just like everyone else. So who better to take advice from than her?
