Oh, Photoshop. What would actresses do without you? Actually, I don’t think ScarJo looks too plastic-y on the cover of November’s Glamour Magazine. Her face looks gorgeous, her hair looks great (I love that shade of red on her), and overall the cover is very, very cute. But… her thighs don’t really look like that, yes? ScarJo has a lovely figure, but there’s no way her thighs are that thin. Photoshop magic shaved inches off those bad boys.
Speaking of ScarJo’s lovely figure, she talks a lot about the “ridiculous” reports of her weight loss over the past year. She claims that any report of her losing 14 pounds is totally false, saying “I could never lose 14 pounds.” Jaybird did a lot of coverage about Scarlett’s weight loss this spring, when it became obvious that Scarlett’s weight had dropped significantly while training for her role in Iron Man 2. There were even reports that ScarJo had been training with Madonna’s patented gristle-maker Tracy Anderson, a trainer who’s known for being a fraud, and for encouraging women to do really unhealthy things. Although I don’t think the Tracy Anderson thing was ever confirmed legitimately, I do believe that Scarlett, at one point this spring, had probably lost 15 to 20 pounds from her once curvy figure.
Scarlett Johansson is over endless speculation about her weight.
“There was this rumor mill cranking out stories that I had lost 14 pounds — I could never lose 14 pounds,” the actress, 25, tells the November issue of Glamour. “I hate seeing these ridiculous articles where [tabloids] guess someone’s weight.
“I can’t look at somebody who is 6 feet tall and 120 pounds and say, I’m going to get that body. That’s just never going to happen,” she admits.
Johansson — who slimmed down to wear a lycra catsuit as the Black Widow in the Iron Man 2 sequel (out next spring) — has accepted her body, she says.
“You have to work with what you’ve got,” she says. But despite coming to terms with her figure, working the red carpet still makes her freak out. I have a tumultuous relationship with it because I love to get ready for the red carpet, but being on it is very uncomfortable. It’s so freakish and weird,” Johansson says. “I get flop sweats, dry mouth, heart palpitations, allover panic!”
Johansson — who just released her second CD, a collaboration with rocker Pete Yorn — also opens up about her marriage to Ryan Reynolds. The pair wed in a low-key ceremony in Canada one year ago.
“I never really thought about getting married — it just kind of happened,” she says. “You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself.…I feel more confident to explore things within myself that I hadn’t thought about in the past.”

By the way, all of the photographs inside Glamour are of ScarJo and her musical collaborator Pete Yorn in various cutesy poses and outfits. Pete and Scarlett worked together for the album Break Up, and they’ve spent the past few weeks doing promotion for it here and there. They also did a Rolling Stone photo portfolio that’s just as cutesy. They must really like each other. Or Pete’s just trying to hit that. What? We were all thinking it. Ryan Reynolds is going to be totes jealous.
