Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds have scooped up a new property in Louisiana, but it's unlike anything you might expect from two successful Hollywood actors.

The new low-key digs features a two-story farmhouse, complete with a rusty, tin-roof barn and plenty of land to mow. The couple is expected to update the property with green features, much in the same way they did with their recently listed L.A. home.

It's clear that Louisiana has made an impression on the stars; especially with Reynolds shooting his "Green Lantern" superhero movie in New Orleans over the past couple months. The pair also recently visited the coast to tour the damage caused by the BP oil spill.

Needless to say, the farmhouse life seems to suit Johansson. In a recent interview, she talked about enjoying the simple things in life.

"I love to cook and bake, I love to be domestic in that way because you know what goes into the food you eat. I like cooking alone — I find it very therapeutic. I put on some music, maybe have a glass of wine and make something like a turkey Bolognese or a nice frittata," said Johansson.
