No baby fever for ScarJo any time soon

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Don’t expect Scarlett Johansson to fulfill the role of nice Jewish mother any time soon: the bombshell actress recently revealed that having kids is not exactly on the top of her priority list.

ScarJo graces the cover of the February issue of Elle, and since the story follows her ex husband, Ryan Reynolds’ recent marriage to Blake Lively, and comes just ahead of Valentines Day, its basically all about her love life.

“I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words,” she said. “To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married… I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me, ‘Would I get married again?’”

When the discussion turned to the topic of kids, Johansson said, “it’s really not important to me. It has no relevance to me right now. I’m not having kids anytime soon, I’m in a nice relationship, I’m working a lot, and, like I said, it’s not important to me.”

The full interview with ScarJo hit newsstands today.
