Scarlett Johansson: Nude pics were for Ryan

Scarlett Johansson addresses her nude photo leak in the December issue of Vanity Fair, revealing that the sexy pictures were meant for her ex-husband, Ryan Reynolds.

More from Vanity Fair's Scarlett Johansson interview

"I know my best angles,” she tells the magazine of the sultry cell phone pictures that leaked online in September.

The starlet explains that the photos “were sent to my ex husband," referring to Ryan Reynolds. (The actors were married from 2008 but split up last December.) "There’s nothing wrong with that,” Scarlett adds of taking nude photos. “It’s not like I was shooting a porno. Although there’s nothing wrong with that either."

Johansson, 26, also opened up to Vanity Fair about her divorce, recalling the tough period after she and Reynolds split. “I didn’t really know what to do with myself. It was such a strange time,” Scarlett says. “There was nothing that was interesting to me. I had a very public separation. It was difficult. I felt very uncomfortable.”

Scarlett remarks on the nature of modern celebrity, saying, “There’s no such thing as an aura of mystery anymore. It doesn’t exist. That’s a thing of the past.”

The actress adds to the magazine that she’d like a less exposed sort of life in the future. “I would like to direct,” she says. “I’d be happy to work behind the camera, forever.”

The December issue of Vanity Fair will be on newsstands nationally on November 9.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you could do with some % to force the message house a bit, however instead of that, that is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    WOW!!! What a great society we live in. We condemn Tim Tebow for being a good guy and give cud does to Ryan Reynolds for posting nude photos of his ex-wife. Ryan Reynolds is a creep and I will not support a guy like him. How much lower can we go!

    Scarlett, marriage and divorce is a common phenomena among celebrities, as well as weird lifestyles. These are the common characteristics which you should understand by now. But nude pics to your Ex? what were you thinking? or let me guess he gave you the butt.and you thought nude pics could change his mind. Ryan would leaked it anyway.

    @EWWW: You sound like an outdoorsy guy. Maybe they will find your bloated body floating down a stream and it will stink to high heaven. Why don't you leave the poor cat lady alone and pick on someone else, internet bully.

    It's refreshing to hear her admit she took them and not try to deny it like so many others have done. Good for her. Too bad some bozo had to invade her privacy.

    One way to avoid getting mugged is to not walk in the worst parts of town.
    One way to avoid having your nudie pics on the internet is to NOT TAKE ANY!

    Sorry Scarlett, you may not be at fault, but you sure are dumb.
