Scarlett Johansson has a lot to say about parenting, but it might not be exactly what you think!
The actress dispels some myths about parenting, and talks life and her upcoming movie Avengers: Age of Ultron with The Daily Telegraph. Here are some highlights from the interview:
On Parenting: “I’m such a newbie at this,” she admitted to News.com.au. “I always really hate it when actors or people in the spotlight make giant grandiose statements about parenthood because it’s so, so personal,” she smiles. “And I don’t profess to know anything more about parenting than anybody else.”
On How Motherhood Changes Her: “I have a greater responsibility now so that will definitely affect my schedule. Before (Rose), I just made the choices that were affecting me but now I’m responsible for somebody else. Eventually I will have to work less and it might even make me more discerning,” she says.
“We’ll see, but I think having any kind of huge life-changing event happen to you, such as having children, and it’s such a different life now in the best possible way, is very, very inspiring,” she offers. “I think it will hopefully enrich my work as well as my understanding of myself. That’s the hope anyway, you never know.”
What she hopes to Pass on to Rose as a Mother: “I think my mom, really more than anything, shaped me in many ways. She was very, very encouraging of our separate interests growing up,” she says, referring to her twin brother, Hunter. “She just made us feel that you could do whatever you wanted to do, as long as you really wanted to do it, and that’s why I got into acting.”
On The Upcoming Avengers Movie: “People loved the first Avengers. It’s fun to watch; it’s a good movie,” she says. “The visuals are spectacular and it’s exciting to be a part of a genre film that’s good. So for me, career-wise it’s been wonderful.”
