Scarlett, who also covers the new Vanity Fair, explains, “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant. And there’s something kind of violent about it.

Scarlett on how living in Paris has changed her sense of style…

“The nice thing about being in Paris is that you know everybody’s looking at what you’re wearing: You have an audience, you know? New York is about street style that’s functional. A Paris look is not functional! It doesn’t matter if your shoes are comfortable. Here [in New York] you can still wear your Nikes. In Paris you suck it up. You hobble around. Although my girlfriends in Paris and I decided we’re adopting the trend of athletic streetwear ’cause we got sick of it. I was like, ‘I am sick of not feeling my big toe after two hours of dancing!'”


Scarlett on her role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier…

“I had some pretty rad fight sequences in Avengers, but a lot of the fighting in Winter Soldier is hand-to-hand. It’s brutal, street-fighting style… such a weird thing: I kinda got career-sidetracked in the superhero lane—happily! But I never thought I’d have, like, sports injuries.”
