Scarlett Johansson is ready to marry again - she's engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac.

The actress, 28, who was previously wed to Green Lantern star Ryan Reynolds, appeared at the Venice Film Festival this week wearing a vintage diamond art deco-style ring.

Now her publicist has told Harper's Bazaar UK: "I can confirm that Scarlett and Romain are engaged," adding that "they haven't chosen a date for the wedding".

The pair have been dating for just nine months.

Scarlett talks of her love for Romain's hometown Paris in Bazaar's October issue interview, where she also discusses her hopes of starting a family.

The Lost In Translation actress married Canadian actor Ryan in 2008, but they divorced in 2011 and Ryan later wed Gossip Girl's Blake Lively.

Scarlett, who has been promoting new movie Under The Skin in Venice, began seeing her now fiance in November last year after they were introduced by mutual friends, according to reports.

She has previously said: "I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually.

"But it is different. It's hard to put into words. To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn't mean you have to be married.

"I never think about marriage. Is that weird? The only time I ever think about it is when people ask me. It's really not important to me."
