Scarlett Johansson, who in May announced her engagement to Canadian-born actor Ryan Reynolds, says she’s eager to become an honorary Canadian – and hopefully pass through the border quickly from now on.

“I’m very excited,” the Vicky Cristina Barcelona star, 23, tells Entertainment Tonight Canada in an interview airing Tuesday. “I’ve had wonderful times in Canada. It’s a lovely country. It’s a beautiful country and hopefully I’ll be able to get through immigration faster now!”

When jokingly told by ET Canada‘s Roz Weston that Reynolds, 31, is “a prince up there,” Johansson responded, “Wow. That’s fantastic. Do I get anything from it?”

Weston quipped that Johansson may receive a crown “made out of beaver” or “possible moose,” to which Johansson responded, “Okay, that’s creepy – an animal on my head. If it’s alive, maybe. Um, I guess so. I don’t know! I’ll take it!

As for Johansson’s steamy kissing scenes with heartthrob Javier Bardem, 39, in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, she says, “It’s so not sexy … It’s just so not a big deal. I think also because half the crew is standing around eating sandwiches, it really takes the edge off. I’m like, ‘You guys really want to go to lunch, don’t you? Alright, just give me the tongue, give me the tongue. We’ll go to lunch after this. Come on Javier, give it to me.’ That s how it goes.”
