In this week's issue of Time Out NY, Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber talk about being married. Not to each other, of course--to their famous spouses, respectively, Ryan Reynolds and Naomi Watts.
The two gave a joint interview to promote their upcoming Broadway revival, the Arthur Miller drama A View from the Bridge, and chatted a bit about their home lives.
"We have no time for dates," Johansson said of Reynolds, to whom she's been married for a little over a year. "We work and then go home and—I, anyway—just stare at the wall for a few hours before I go to sleep."
So how do they find couple-time? Johansson admits it's tricky: "Like in any profession, it’s difficult. You want to make sure you have time to invest in your family. It’s a challenge but it’s worth it."
As for Schreiber, he's all about his kids these days. "It’s kind of amazing, actually," says the actor. "You go through all this stuff in rehearsal and you come home and they don’t give a crap; they just want your full attention. It’s been a total savior. [My 2-and-a-half-year-old son] is like, “Daddeeeeee!” and he just wants to play. You dump the baggage right away and reconnect with all these human feelings. It’s such a good hit."
When asked about New Year's Eve plans, both actors predicted they'd be spending quiet evenings at home. In Johansson's words: "Going from one party to the next, and surfing to find the right thing, and being in a taxicab when the clock strikes—I’m so over that stuff. At the ripe old age of 25. I have the most fun when I’m surrounded by people I love in one place that’s comfortable and we can hear each other. You can play card games, watch movies, I’m happy."
Her perfect New Year's Eve this year? "Pizza would be nice. A little champagne. Maybe watch the Twilight Zone marathon. That’s always a favorite for me."
Agrees Schreiber: "(Scarlett, Ryan, Naomi, and I will) probably be having a double date with the Twilight Zone marathon. There’s a certain part after 1 a.m. when it becomes Outer Limits. That’s a hard-core New Year’s Eve."
