In the world of celebrity news, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds' two-year marriage seems like it's in the distant past.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Heidi Klum and Seal, and even Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split since Johansson and Reynolds called it quits in late 2010.

But as 28-year-old Johansson reveals in a new interview with Marie Claire, she still vividly recalls when she -- not Blake Lively -- was Mrs. Ryan Reynolds.

"Well, it wasn't that long ago," the notoriously private Johansson says of her two year-marriage. "But I think I've had a fair amount of time to process the experience and be able to move forward. I continue to get to know myself better as I get older, and that helps me in my relationships."

The sexy star, who later dated fellow movie star Sean Penn and NYC ad executive Nate Naylor, has now found romance with Romain Dauriac, the 30-year-old manager of a French creative agency.

And although she stays tight-lipped about her latest love, Johansson is surprisingly open to chatting about another subject from which a lot of people would shy away: porn. "Don Jon," her upcoming comedy film written, directed, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is all about a Don Juan-type who's addicted to pornography.

"I don't really think about porn," she explains. "But I think it can be constructive in a relationship and destructive in a relationship. It depends on how you enjoy it or how you use it. Porn can make women feel liberated in some ways, sexually. Some of it is exciting and empowering, it can be artful and super-sexy. Some of it's fetishistic. And then there's degrading and awful [porn]."

Johansson's also willing to share her thoughts about the sentence given to the man convicted of hacking into her cell phone and stealing nude photos that she had sent to Reynolds. Christopher Chaney, who hacked Johansson, Mila Kunis, and more than 50 other celebrities, received 10 years behind bars last July.

"I think that was a fair sentence," the "Iron Man 2" actress says. "It's important to note that this affected so many people emotionally, I think, more than in any other way. The violation was so awful. I don't want to say, 'Oh, this person should be made an example of,' but I would be lying if I said I didn't feel that way."

ScarJo loosens up as she chats about the lighter subject of family, even laughing as she makes fun of her brothers, twin Hunter and 36-year-old Adrian.

"They're just gross -- oh, they're just awful!" the New York-based actress says playfully. "They're just sitting on the couch, eating all my food. We gossip about family and watch stupid TV shows. But I treasure the time I get to spend with them."

Still, the most telling detail about Johansson doesn't come from her own mouth, but that of her "Avengers" co-star Chris Evans, when he describes a visit he and Johansson took to a bar when they were in Ohio filming their movie.

"We get a couple beers, and Scarlett says, 'We should get onstage and sing a song!' And this is the type of balls that Scarlett has: She walks up to the band, asks if they know 'Rocky Raccoon,' and she sings it -- flawlessly, mind you -- to about 15 people sucking down beers in some dive bar in Cleveland. It was surreal. It was phenomenal. It was hysterical."
