Actress Scarlett Johansson, 28, has became engaged to her boyfriend and now fiance, Romain Dauriac, approximately a month ago. In other words, like Beyonce, she, Scarlett, now “has a ring on it.”
It’s official, guys, so you can scratch off marrying her yourselves from your bucket lists. She has been spotted with her journalist beau wearing her latest bling, a stunning diamond Art Deco engagement ring, while promoting her upcoming release, the science fiction thriller Under the Skin in Italy.
The movie Under the Skin was directed by Jonathan Glazer. It’s a British fantasy flick made from Michel Faber’s novel by the same name. In it, Johansson is a vampiric alien, with the thirst for human blood.
Scarlett was attending the movie’s premiere at the 70th Annual Venice International Film Festival when the paparazzi photographed her wearing her sparkling Art Deco engagement ring.
The stunning actress has been seen several times this past year wearing the bling of diamond rings upon the ring finger of her left hand. For example, the most recent occurrence was in July in Los Angeles.
Then, Johansson made waves in the entertainment news media when she was seen wearing a gold ring that was inset with a ruby and a diamond.
That bling, though, she referred to as “simply a piece of jewelry.”
People magazine broke the newsworthy story after a source told them that “They’re engaged and very happy.”
For Scarlett Johansson, it would be her second marriage. Her first one was to the actor Ryan Reynolds. According to Johansson, she doesn’t place a lot of importance on marriage as a sign of a couple loving each other.
As Johansson related in last February’s issue of the magazine ELLE UK:
I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different. It’s hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn’t mean you have to be married.
“I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me. It’s really not important to me.”
Last November, mutual friends introduced Scarlett and Romain to each other, and the pair apparently hit it off right from the start of their relationship.
Johanson’s boyfriend, Dauriac, strolled down the red carpet with Scarlett, at Under the Skin’s international premiere. The actress was wearing a Versace dress and flashing her diamond engagement ring. Was their stroll perhaps a prelude for their eventual wedding, despite Johansson’s discounting the importance of being married?
Will Johansson’s second marriage prove to be the charm? Though no wedding date has leaked out to the media yet, it’s official that Scarlett Johansson now has a ring on it.
