I guess the Scroll’s invitation got lost in the mail. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Jewish actress Scarlett Johansson wed French journalist Romain Duriac earlier this fall, shortly after the birth of their daughter, Rose. The wedding was reportedly such a small, un-Hollywood affair that Page Six cautions it may have taken place “in a remote and natural location, such as Colorado.”

Johansson has been in the spotlight a great deal this year, both for her roles on-screen and off. Her gig as global representative for Israeli at-home carbonation system SodaStream garnered criticism from supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement—including OxFam, the humanitarian organization for which she was also a spokesperson. Johansson remained steadfast in her support of the bubbly beverage-maker, dropping OxFam over what she described in a statement as “a fundamental difference of opinion in regards to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.” The statement said the actress was a “supporter of economic cooperation and social interaction between a democratic Israel and Palestine.”

All of which is to say that she and Duriac probably didn’t need to register for a SodaStream machine. They definitely got a Vitamix though.
