Scarlett Johansson V Magazine Summer 2010

Modern day Monroe Scarlett Johansson covers “The Summer Scorcher Issue” of V Magazine. Scarlet — who stars in Iron Man 2, which opens in theaters today — was snapped for the cover by accomplished snappers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and chatted about the challenges she’s experienced in her transformation from child star to modern-day starlet.

“I’m 25, and for some time I’ve played these characters who are kind of figuring it out, transforming from young girls to young women. I don’t feel like a girl anymore. And I feel like my life and career are on a different path than they had been. There’s a lot of road behind me.”
