Scarlett Johansson hates “jealous” men and finds insecurity an “unattractive” trait in a partner
The ‘We Bought A Zoo’ actress enjoys her independence in a relationship and while she accepts her partner may want to “check-in” on her daily antics, she hates feeling smothered and has no time for possessive guys.
Speaking in the May issue of Marie Claire magazine, she said: “I don’t like jealous behaviour. 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.”
Scarlett, 28, also opened up about her marriage to Ryan Reynolds, who she split from in December 2010 and divorced in July 2011, and feels the experience has “helped” her in relationships since.
One thing the blonde beauty – who also dated Sean Penn and Jared Leto – does to protect her romantic life is stay off social media as much as she can because she wants her personal life to remain private.
She said: “Well, it 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.
“All [social media] drives me crazy. I don’t understand this need to ‘share.’ We almost exploit ourselves in order to feel seen.”
