But the actress really got our attention with her accompanying interview, teasing long lost love with an old flame. While she didn't name names, she did say:
"Long, long ago, I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable…but, like, so attractively unavailable. You have to get to your breaking point… rock bottom is the moment when you're like, 'I've lost myself. Why am I standing outside this bar at 1:30 in the morning texting while my friends are inside? Or taking a taxi to see him at some ungodly hour? This isn't me.' That is the moment you've gotta cut it off. Otherwise, it will keep coming back, suck your blood."
We've all been there, but we have to admit, we are super curious about who this could have been.
Well, while you mull that over, the 31-year-old momma also took the time to share her thoughts on the gender pay gap controversy in Hollywood. ScarJo confessed:
"There's something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole… I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I'm proud to be an actress who's making as much as many of my male peers at this stage… I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I'm addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It's part of a larger conversation about feminism in general."
In case you didn't know, the actress did receive pay equal to her male costars in the Marvel movies (aside from Robert Downey Jr., who by far topped his peers).
Even so, she realizes it's a problem in general that women face in the workforce! Which also brought her to the topic of funding for Planned Parenthood. She argued:
"There are countries at war, there's terrorism, global warming, and we're like, 'We should definitely cut the budget for Planned Parenthood. Let's take away the availability of women's health initiatives!'… It's nuts. We're talking about preventing cervical and breast cancers. Growing up, I used [PP's] services. All my girlfriends did—not just for birth control but for Pap smears and breast exams. You read about the rise of back-alley abortions, women having to mutilate themselves and teenagers having to seek help in unsafe conditions, and for what?! We're moving backward when we're supposed to be moving forward."
Didn't get enough of the blonde beauty? Ch-ch-check out her spread in the gallery (above)!
