Scarlett Johansson: Tired Of Being SexyBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - May 27, 2014
Most women would kill to have Scarlett Johansson’s good looks, but according to Johansson, being sexy isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Johansson’s astonishing beauty and amazing figure have allowed her to be a sex symbol for years, but the actress claims that being a sex symbol is tiring and even frustrating at times.
“I don’t want to be the ingénue any more. That part I’m happy about. It’s nice to be glamorous, but I don’t want to always have to be trendy and glamorous and an object of desire. I don’t want to be stuck in that forever. Because it doesn’t last,” she said.
Johansson is pregnant and unlike most women, she isn’t worried about losing her figure, gaining weight or even aging. In fact, she looks forward to the day that she doesn’t have to constantly worry about her looks.
She does hope to be able to juggle motherhood and her career and admitted to being selfish when it comes to “wanting it all.”
The star tends to like her privacy and it is not likely that she will let the world be too involved with her pregnancy or her child.
Although Johansson hasn’t said how she plans to deal with the media once her child arrives. She did say that she was happy to have been a young star when she was and said that things were different for young actors and actresses back then.
“I feel very fortunate that I was able to have a bit of a smoother transition into my young adulthood without having people videotaping me,” she admitted.
Do you think Scarlett Johansson will be able to juggle motherhood and her career successfully?
