For the early part of Kevin Durant’s career, I’m not sure he knew he was already famous.

“I hope she is aware of it,” Durant said. “It’s strange now cuz I look really, it made me look crazy, but now it make me look real cool. I would, I actually love Scarlett Johansson, and I would do that … and she’s single now.”

Oh yes she is, KD. Back in February, Johansson has split from her second husband and father of her child, French journalist Romain Dauriac after two years of marriage. Her reasoning: “I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person.”
