Scarlett Johansson Tells V She Feels Like a Woman Now

Scarlett Johansson struck a few poses for the upcoming issue of V, which is on newsstands next Tuesday. She opened up in the accompanying interview about her character in her Summer blockbuster Iron Man 2, which opens today — Buzz's review says it's a lot of fun! She also touched on maturing in her career and how she transforms from her everyday, gym-going self to being red carpet ready. Scarlett said:

  • On her Black Widow character in Iron Man 2: "It’s not that she’s non-feeling, she just gets the job done. She’s part of something bigger, and she knows it. She’s this crazy badass, and she has no time for f-cking around."
  • On what it takes to make her look like a movie star: "It’s all in a day’s work for me. Working with these incredible hair and makeup teams, you go in looking like a schmoe, and you come out like a movie star. You go through the works, and then you’re like this perfectly prepared sausage . . . no one ever sees what goes in."
  • On feeling like a grownup: "I’m 25, and for some time I’ve played these characters who are kind of figuring it out, transforming from young girls to young women . . . I don’t feel like a girl anymore. And I feel like my life and career are on a different path than they had been. There’s a lot of road behind me. I feel at this point I really want to do work that is challenging to me. Not to say that I don’t look at my job and realize that I’m ridiculously fortunate, and purely an actor for hire. You never forget that it’s all so vulnerable."

Love her. And splork, I agree 110% She doesn't seem to have that sense of self entitlement. And I don't find her annoying - she's not so IN MY FACE all the time that I get annoyed or sick of her, and she seems like a mature adult who can deliver what she is supposed to; diplomatic and appropriate in all situations.

"Not to say that I don’t look at my job and realize that I’m ridiculously fortunate" Glad she recognizes this. Many out there seem to think they are entitled.
