Don't expect a quick Hollywood wedding for Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds. The actress says that she wants to take her time and enjoy the moment. I think that is sound advice. So often we rush to the finish line without really enjoying the ride.
"We’re just enjoying our time. We’re just recently - very recently - engaged. So, you know, we’re just taking it easy. And no big plan yet.
"But it’s a good time, and we’re just… enjoying our time to be young and engaged. I mean, I’m 23. There’s no reason to rush into it. Everything feels very natural and relaxed."
While promoting his latest film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, seasoned filmmaker Woody Allen shared his thoughts on the media, the paparazzi and how he's dealt with living a private life in the public eye.
In an interview with Extra, Allen, 72, says, "It's not a natural thing for a human being to get out of the car and be photographed a thousand times and hear your name screamed. It's very unnerving but I do it. I do it because I have a commitment to the movie and the producer."
Allen, who's been in showbusiness for over 40 years, has a habit of using the same actress in several of his films. His most recent muse is the newly engaged Scarlett Johansson who stars alongside Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
"She's great. It's obvious," Allen exclaims. "She's beautiful. She's talented. She's gifted."
As for Scarlett's view of Woody, the 23-year-old actress says, "I've always been a huge fan of his! I grew up in New York. My parents waited in line for his film's opening night for an hour. I grew up watching his films. We've done three films together. It's a dream come true for me. We make each other laugh and have a good time."
Scarlett starred in 2005's Match Point and 2006's Scoop. Both films were written and directed by Woody Allen.
he has this weird obseession with her :O
Newly engaged Scarlett Johansson says falling in love has a lot to do with timing.
"You don't always meet the right person at the right time," she tells the August issue of Cosmopolitan.
Adds the 23-year-old actress (who romanced Josh Hartnett and Jared Leto before fiancé Ryan Reynolds): "It's important for people to figure out their own lives before involving someone else — to gauge where you are and work on your own issues."
Johansson also clarifies her 2006 comments in which she said that people aren't monogamous by nature.
"I don't think it's a natural instinct for human beings," she tells the magazine of monogamy.
She adds, "Monogamy can be hard work for some people. I don't think it applies to everybody, and I don't think a lot of people can do it."
But Johansson (who showed off her engagement rock from Reynolds in May) insists, "I believe in finding a soul mate. I've always been in monogamous relationships. I would never want to be in an open one. It'd be too awful."
See what age your favorite stars got engaged.
Tell Us: Do you think Scarlett and Ryan are soul mates
Scarlett Johansson and her music producer have described her singing style as “Tinkerbell on cough syrup”.
The starlet, who is best known for her appearances in films such The Other Boleyn Girl and Lost In Translation, is releasing her album of Tom Waits covers this month.
Anywhere I Lay My Head will feature mostly Tom Waits tracks and an original song entitled Song For Jo.
Speaking about her first foray into writing, Scarlett said: “It was a memory of someone that’s very close to me: a vague and blissful memory of my wanton youth or whatever. It’s a song about friendship, I think.”
The album will also feature a guest appearance by David Bowie who will provide backing vocals on two tracks.
However, the actress-turned-songstress does not appear fazed by her first musical release, telling People magazine that she has “nothing to prove”.
She adds that she is not worried about whether her movie fans will enjoy it, although she hopes people will.

The 23-year-old actress is auctioning off two tickets to the premiere of her upcoming film, He's Just Not That Into You – where the VIP guests will have a chance to schmooze with the star.
The eBay auction is designed to benefit Oxfam, an international relief organization. "One-hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to supporting Oxfam's work," Johansson says in a video on the auction site. "So please bid high."
