Scarlett Johansson Is The Official Spokesperson For Feeding America

Scarlett Johansson at The 2015 MTV MOVIE AWARDS  in LA

Scarlett Johansson is taking a stand against hunger!

The actress and her co-star, Jeremy Renner have become official spokespeople for the charity, Feeding America. And it’s an issue that’s close to her heart. The Golden Globe nominee revealed that before she was a mega-famous star, her family relied on the govt to keep fed!  She said:

“My family grew up relying on public assistance to help provide meals for our family. Child hunger in America is a real and often overlooked problem, but one that together, we can fix.”

In a recent PSA, she also stated:

“The are 16 million children struggling with hunger in America. That’s one in five daughters, sons, neighbors and classmates who don’t know where their next meal is coming from, yet billions of pounds of good food go to waste every year. It’s time we do something about it.”

AGREED.

With her summer blockbuster The Avengers: Age of Ultron set to release May 1, Scarlett is really leveraging her fame for a good cause. See the PSA HERE!

Scarlett Johansson Hints At Why She Split With Ryan Reynolds

13th Annual Los Angeles Shorts Festival in West Hollywood

 Scarlett Johansson‘s marriage to Ryan Reynolds OBVI didn’t work out, but she does have advice on how to be in a happy marriage!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron star is now happily hitched French journalist Romain Dauriac. To what does she credit their marital strength? Separate careers, kids. Separate. Friggin.’ Careers.

In the new issue of Parade, the actress alluded to the problems inherent in dating (and marrying) a fellow actor…which may give us hints at why Ryan and Scarlett ultimately didn’t work out:

“Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in,” the Lucy star told the magazine. “It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person. It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them.”

“[Marriage] takes a lot of work. It takes a man who’s not only confident in the love that you have for one another, but confident in what he has going on in his own career. He has to be in a field that’s completely different from yours,” she explained to Parade.

“My husband’s also involved in art. What’s important to him is the recognition that he gets from his job, and that has nothing to do with my job,” she added.

They do share some common interests, of course. “We like to go out and go dancing,” the blonde stunner, 30, dished. “Other times, we like to sit at home and eat Thai food and watch House Hunters International for four hours. And we’re interested in each other’s worlds.”

Wow, pretty strong endorsement for dating someone outside of your own line of work.  Do you agree or disagree with ScarJo’s assessment on what makes a healthy marriage?

Scarlett Johnasson On Parenting, Life And Avengers

Scarlett Johansson at The 2015 MTV MOVIE AWARDS  in LA

Scarlett Johansson has a lot to say about parenting, but it might not be exactly what you think!

The actress dispels some myths about parenting, and talks life and her upcoming movie Avengers: Age of Ultron with The Daily Telegraph. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On Parenting: “I’m such a newbie at this,” she admitted to News.com.au. “I always really hate it when actors or people in the spotlight make giant grandiose statements about parenthood because it’s so, so personal,” she smiles. “And I don’t profess to know anything more about parenting than anybody else.”

On How Motherhood Changes Her: “I have a greater responsibility now so that will definitely affect my schedule.  Before (Rose), I just made the choices that were affecting me but now I’m responsible for somebody else. Eventually I will have to work less and it might even make me more discerning,” she says.

“We’ll see, but I think having any kind of huge life-changing event happen to you, such as having children, and it’s such a different life now in the best possible way, is very, very inspiring,” she offers. “I think it will hopefully enrich my work as well as my understanding of myself. That’s the hope anyway, you never know.”

What she hopes to Pass on to Rose as a Mother: “I think my mom, really more than anything, shaped me in many ways. She was very, very encouraging of our separate interests growing up,” she says, referring to her twin brother, Hunter. “She just made us feel that you could do whatever you wanted to do, as long as you really wanted to do it, and that’s why I got into acting.”

On The Upcoming Avengers Movie: “People loved the first Avengers. It’s fun to watch; it’s a good movie,” she says. “The visuals are spectacular and it’s exciting to be a part of a genre film that’s good. So for me, career-wise it’s been wonderful.”

Scarlett Johansson Soccer Mom’d Out At The MTV Movie Awards

Scarlett Johansson at The 2015 MTV MOVIE AWARDS  in LA

Or Kate Gosselin‘d out- however you wanna put it, really.

Scarlett Johansson showed up to the MTV movie awards in a controversial, Golden Girls-style hot pink Zuhair Murad jumpsuit and I gotta say, this thing is a fashion TRAVESTY.

The actress accessorized with a clashing mint green clutch and strappy Sophia Webster sandals in yellow, turquoise and pink…but even though she looks absolutely amazing after giving birth to daughter Dorothy Rose (yeah, that happened just seven months ago), I don’t think this look does her ANY favors.

What do you think of ScarJo’s fashion, uh, “statement?”
