Scarlett Johansson, who gave birth to daughter Rose Dorothy just three months ago, thinks her body is just "okay."

On Sunday's Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 on NBC, the Lucy actress critiqued what the rest of us finds ridiculously fabulous — her famous bod.

"It's an okay body," said the 30-year-old actress, who was number 10 on Walter's list. "I wouldn't say it's particularly remarkable, though. I don't like my thighs, my midsection."

Johansson, who reportedly married French journalist Romain Dauriac in October, also claimed she doesn't consider herself to be particularly sexy.

"I never put on a sexy face," she told Walters. "So I don't know what it means to act seductively."

On the other hand, the Avengers star said filming sex scenes is an exercise in freedom.

“You have to be totally without judgment, and it’s sort of liberating," said Johansson. "It’s challenging. You have to stay in the moment.”

Whatever she may think of her body, she looks pretty fantastic just three months post-birth. She told Walters her secret to shedding the baby weight is breastfeeding.

"I'm nursing and I love it," she said. "It's the best way to get back in shape."

Johansson told the 85-year-old journalist that, even though taking care of little Rose can be daunting at times, she prefers to be hands-on when it comes to caring for her daughter.

“It’s wonderful, and exhausting,” Johansson said. “The love is just unbelievable. It’s very overwhelming.”
