Scarlett Johansson is over endless speculation about her weight.

"I can't look at somebody who is 6 feet tall and 120 pounds and say, I'm going to get that body. That's just never going to happen," she admits.

Johansson -- who slimmed down to wear a lycra catsuit as the Black Widow in the Iron Man 2 sequel (out next spring) -- has accepted her body, she says.

"You have to work with what you've got," she says.

But despite coming to terms with her figure, working the red carpet still makes her freak out.

"I have a tumultuous relationship with it because I love to get ready for the red carpet, but being on it is very uncomfortable. It's so freakish and weird,"  Johansson says. "I get flop sweats, dry mouth, heart palpitations, allover panic!"

Johansson -- who just released her second CD, a collaboration with rocker Pete Yorn -- also opens up about her marriage to Ryan Reynolds. The pair wed in a low-key ceremony in Canada one year ago.

"I never really thought about getting married -- it just kind of happened," she says. "You hope that a relationship makes you better, that you learn things about yourself.…

"I feel more confident to explore things within myself that I hadn't thought about in the past," Johansson adds.
