Scarlett Johansson: I hate jealousy

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson can't tolerate men who demonstrate "jealous behaviour" in relationships

The actress has opened up about the behaviour she can't stand when she is involved with someone.

The 28-year-old, who split from Ryan Reynolds after two years of marriage in 2010, says men who act in a possessive manner have no chance with her.

"I don't like jealous behaviour," Scarlett told the American edition of Marie Claire magazine.

"I don't mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it's really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity. Oh, controlling behaviour is awful. Nobody's going to say they love that.

"[My marriage] wasn't that long ago. But I think I've had a fair amount of time to process the experience and be able to move forward. I continue to get to know myself better as I get older, and that helps me in my relationships."

Scarlett is currently dating 30-year-old French creative agency manager Romain Dauriac. She has recently discussed her plans to become a mother within the next ten years, as well as her latest project which sees her directing an adaptation of Truman Capote's Summer Crossing.

Scarlett is unfazed by working behind the camera, explaining her other life plan would take much more preparation.

"It's not really new territory for me, I've been in this industry for 20 years. It's all I've known since I was eight years old," Scarlett explained to UK Glamour magazine.

"[In a decade's time] I'd like to be directing and maybe have a family. Yeah directing and a family, that would be great."

As well as turning her hand to directing, the star has a talent for singing. She's formed a band with a couple of her girlfriends and they plan to make their music public in the future.

"We have a few tracks we'll release at some point," she revealed.

Scarlett is known for being a party girl and often beats the boys during a drinking session. Next year, she will reprise her role as Black Widow in The Avengers sequel, alongside a mostly male cast that includes Jeremy Renner and Robert Downey Jr.

"I can't complain [about working on the Avengers], but you're talking about a group of actors, they're more sensitive than I am," she laughed. "[My party trick is] drinking more than everybody else."

Scarlett reflected on her life in the public eye so far. She shared what advice she'd give to her younger self a decade ago.

"Take photos! I never do and I've ended up with no pictures of my life at all," she reflected.

"Aside from that, I wouldn't interfere too much. At that age you experience everything with wide eyes and blissful ignorance - and you never get that back."
