Scarlett Johansson’s secret wedding uncovered

By Maria Puente/Gannett News Service

Congratulations are in order for Scarlett Johansson and French journalist Romain Dauriac, who secretly married months ago in Montana.

The New York Post and People are reporting they confirmed that Johansson and Dauriac wed in Philipsburg, Montana, on Oct. 1.

Johansson gave birth to their daughter, Rose Dorothy, in September.

The news of their nuptials comes just after Johansson was spotted earlier in November wearing what might have been a wedding band at a fundraiser for Hurricane Sandy victims. Dauriac, too, was seen recently with a gold band on his left hand.

People had reported in September 2013 that the two were engaged but were in no hurry to wed.

An unnamed source told the Post’s Page Six column that the wedding was a secret because the couple wanted privacy.

Privacy is a major issue for Johansson, who is circumspect about what she says to the media. She was once asked whether she planned on settling in France, where paparazzi are under more constraints, especially when taking pictures of children.

“I’ve been thinking lately that maybe it’s good to move to some faraway country where you can ski,” Johansson told Craig Ferguson in March.

She told WSJ Magazine that she wanted it all — privacy, a family and a career.

“There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater,” she said.

One thing she will have, according to Deadline, is a starring role in her first TV series, an eight-episode drama, for an undetermined cable channel, called “The Custom Of The Country,” based on Edith Wharton’s 1913 novel of the same name.
