During an interview with ET Canada before her film's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Johansson was asked if it was the "best or worst timing for getting engaged?"
"My friend was like, 'Congrats on timing,'" she shared. "Things work out the way they do, maybe it's better just to get it out the way."
After confirming their engagement on Sept. 4, Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac stepped out in Paris for a romantic dinner date on Saturday, Sept. 7. The 28-year-old actress held her French journalist fiance's arm while going for an evening stroll before hopping on a scooter together.
