With her new comedy "Chef" slated to hit theaters next month, Scarlett Johansson pitched in on promotions by covering the May 2014 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

Check out GossipCenter's recap of Miss Johansson's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Vanity Fair!

On Romain:
"It is [easier to be with someone who isn't famous], but it's more than that. We do different things. He's in the whole art-scene world. So it's nice, because we can enjoy each other's worlds, but we don't have our crazy conflicting schedules and all that other stuff to contend with. Of course, actors in general, they're obsessed with emotions. Although he's French, so he's probably overly into his emotions."

On Black Widow:
"[I dyed my hair red in a bid to win the character]. If you want something you have to go for it. That's something I learned early one. I was competitive from a young age."

On her work for "Her":
"I thought it was just voice-over work. My agent sent me the script and said, 'Oh it's a few hours. I met with Spike and ended up having this eight -hour meeting or something. By the end of which I was starving and dehydrated. And it was like, 'Oh man' you know?"
