A representative for Scarlett Johansson has threatened to sue a U.K. Cosmopolitan magazine containing her tell-all interview, insisting it was “wholly fabricated” to boost the publication’s profits.
Johansson graces the January 2009 cover of Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine, and seemingly speaks openly about her marriage to actor Ryan Reynolds. The 24-year-old actress allegedly told the magazine during an interview, “Ryan and I are in love and we’re enjoying evolving our relationship together.” “I feel that my life and work are heading in the right direction… We’re like any other couple – we feel so fortunate to be together and so happy to have made this commitment to share our lives.”
However, Johansson denies making any such statement. Her rep, Marcel Pariseau has slammed the magazine, insisting journalists were not granted an interview with the star and that the article’s context is completely false.
“(The article is an) obvious attempt… to gain monetarily by misinforming their readers,” Contactmusic quoted the rep as telling in a statement.
“(Johansson) has at no point granted U.K. Cosmopolitan an interview, and she has never discussed her personal relationships with the publication,” he rep added.
The spokesperson said: “Ms. Johansson, who goes to great lengths to preserve an authentic representation of herself with respect to her fans and the media, is disappointed to see a seemingly reputable publication inexplicably publish a work of fiction at her expense.”
Pariseau said that the actress will be seeking legal action against the magazine.
Johansson and Reynolds, 32, were married at a quiet ceremony outside Vancouver, Canada.
