Scarlett Johansson graces the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine, showing us her new fiery red-haired look, and looking pretty amazing in her purple dress.
Inside the first issue of 2012, the Hollywood actress talks about her divorce from fellow actor Ryan Reynolds, and what she is heading toward in her career as an actor.
On her marriage to Reynolds she says; “I’m a big believer that when something feels right, you should do it. I’m a big believer in instinct. Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody, and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be,” She went on to say “Relationships are complicated and being married is a living, breathing process. I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and valleys. I wasn’t prepared to hunker down and do the work,”
Scarlett claims that the pair were both “extremely busy” , spending a lot of time apart from one another, but she does say “It was the best thing I ever did”
Scarlett admits that she learned a lesson from this experience and saying that, “You have to be very confident and solid within yourself to have a successful marriage.”
Talking of her career, Scarlett goes on to say that as a young 19-year-old, she was always cast as a young beautiful character, mainly being based on her looks, which the actress admits she was happy to go along with. But now at 27 years old, Scarlett is looking for more character based roles in her future projects.

Kourtney and scott already have a super cute son named Mason Dash kardshian Disick, who is now two years old. he is now set to become a big brother to the new expectant arrival.
in contrast to other celebrities, who usually hide their pregnancies, untill at least three months in, 32-year-old Kourtney is just 9 weeks pregnant, but couldn’t wait to share the news.
Kim and Khloe Kardashan’s big sister Kourtney says she found out five weeks ago, early in the morning when she took a pregnancy test, and as soon as she saw it was positive, she rushed to wake Scott, who was still sleeping, the couple couldn’t be happier about the news.
Disick, 28, said, when confirming the news to magazine, US weekly, that unlike baby Mason, who came as a surprise to the couple, this time round the baby was sort of planned, “it’s not like we were trying” he added, “We kind of just said, ‘If it’s meant to be, it’ll be”.
So we look forward to following Kourtney’s growing bump, seeing what amazing maternity wear she is bound to show us and the arrival of what we are sure will be another super cute baby.
Beyonce proudly shows off her baby bump in between takes, while making the video for her latest single’Countdown’.
Beyonce’s latest single ‘Countdown‘ is an energetic fun-filled track, and im sure most of you have seen the video, as she dances around in her usual revealing outfits, it is hard to believe that Beyonce was actually 6 months pregnant, while making it.
Beyonce used some very clever outfits and choreography to hide her ever-growing baby bump, but here is a video showing a very excited mum to be , proudly showing off her baby bump in between scenes, slamming rumours, that her pregnancy is fake.
Singer Beyonce and her Rap star husband Jay-Z are expecting the arrival of their first child, –rumoured to be a girl, after former Destiny’s Child band mate Kelly Rowland, accidentally let it slip in an interview last month-in December.
EMMA WILLIS and her I’m a Celeb… winner husband MATT WILLIS have welcomed their second child into the world. Emma gave birth to a baby boy on Friday and they’ve named him Ace Billy Willis.
Both mother and baby are doing well. Emma told a friend: “Ace is looking good and I look like crap.” The arrival of little Ace has made their first child, daughter,Isabelle a big sister, Nd we are guessing she’s a proud little girl this weekend. Matt tweeted the good news earlier, tweeting “I HAVE A SON HIS NAME IS ACE” .
Doctor who actor Matt Smith and Daisy Lowe have split, after 18 months together and talk of engagement and marriage, the shocking split has taken everyone by surprise.
Smith called time on the relationship, and it has been said that he was not feeling happy about the idea of long-term commitment, and the prospect of marriage.
It comes as a shock to all around the couple as they have been described very recently as “very happy together”.
They definitely seemed the perfect couple, a friend told The Sun, ‘This has come as a surprise to everyone. It was thought they’d be together for a really long time because they were so into each other”.
They were first pictured together in April last year at California’s Coachella music festival. The pair have shared their love of music often being spotted at festivals throughout the year.
DEMI MOORE HAS RELEASED A STATEMENT ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, SAYING THAT SHE IS SET TO DIVORCE HER ASHTON KUTCHER.
After six years of what seemed like the perfect marriage, rumours started appearing, talking of Ashton’s alledged infidelity with 22-year-old Sara Leal.
Demi’s official statement reads;
“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
Ashton has immediately responded via his Twitter account @aplusk
I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi.
Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK
So here we are again, with the demise of yet another Hollywood marraige, like others I had faith in this one, it seemed as though their relationship was seemless, with Ashton step children and even Demi Moored ex husband Bruce Willis, fitting into their world.
But as Demi mentions in her statement, when values and vows are broken, they are often unfixable.

In light of the recent news that Kim Kardashian has filed for Divorce from her NBA husband Kris Humphries, it has been widely reported that she is no longer wearing her wedding ring, or her 20.5ct Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring. This got me thinking, what happens to the ring now? Is it OK for a bride to keep her engagement ring, or should it be returned to the groom?
Is an engagement ring a contract between two people. an agreement to marry each other, with the intention of sticking together through the good times, and the bad, in sickness, and in health, and all that other stuff? Or in these modern times has tradition been overtaken by the fact that a diamond ring is merely a gift, with no meaning behind it, and therefore is a woman’s to keep, no matter what happens after the engagement. Of course Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphies did walk down the aisle and marry each other, although it lasted only 72 days before divorce proceedings began, but what if the couple in question doesn’t even make it down the aisle? Crystal Harris received a diamond engagement ring from Playboy owner Hugh Hefner, after she accepted his proposal of marriage, a few days before the nuptials Crystal publicly called off their engagement. Crystal did not return the ring, but instead sold it at Christie’s auction house for a whopping $38,000. Again the question arises, was the diamond a gift therefore hers forever, to do with what she wishes, or was it in fact accepted in agreement of happy ever afters? Or does it morally belong to Mr Hefner and should it have been returned to him.
I guess, the answer to these questions lies within the couples themselves, it is really down to their own values and beliefs. I would be a little saddened if the great traditions of marriage were to disappear all together. But what is your thoughts on this? Leave some comments below let us know what know think.
