Scarlett Johansson Blasts ScarJo Nickname, Disses J.Lo While She's At It

For the last time, Scarlett Johansson does not like the 'ScarJo' nickname.

The mom-to-be has already stated this before, but since the nickname keeps coming up in the press, she decided to set the record straight again when she sat down with Glamour for an interview that accompanied her April cover.

"I associate that name with, like, pop stars. 'It sounds tacky. It's lazy and flippant ... There's something insulting about it," the Captain America star told the mag. Gulp...kind of like J.Lo? Which Jennifer Lopez doesn't seem to mind at all by the way.

The actress also complained about the moniker back in 2012, calling it "awful" to USA Today, reiterating that it felt lazy to her. "People can't actually say the whole name? It's just bizarre ... so Cate Blanchett is not, like, 'CaBla'? Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck with [ScarJo]?" Probably because it's shorter and easier to write, like J.Law, but that's just our take.

Something tells us though, even with her complaints, that nickname isn't going away any time soon.

That aside, Scarlett also dished on how she's changed since her divorce from Ryan Reynolds in 2011, saying "I think I know myself better. I feel I know now more of what I need in a relationship, what I want in a relationship. And I know I have more tools to communicate, not just with my partner, but with myself."

"That's not necessarily any reflection of who I was married to or what was happening in my marriage, but really where I was in my life. When I was first married, I was much younger. And I have had the opportunity now to work more on getting to know myself. I think that makes you a better partner and somebody who is able to work with somebody and stay in a relationship in the not-romantic moments. I have more patience with myself. I have more patience with my partner. I think that just comes with age, probably."

Both Scarlett and Ryan have since moved way on with Scarlett pregnant and set to tie the knot with French journalist Romain Dauriac and Ryan marrying Blake Lively in 2012.
