You probably won’t catch Scarlett Johansson sharing selfies and personal information on social media anytime soon.
While other celebrities can’t wait to post all sorts of junk on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, the Avengers alum isn’t too concerned about putting too much information about herself on the internet. In fact, she’s even a little cautious about what she discusses during press junkets and in-depth interviews.
According to First Post, Scarlett Johansson doesn’t feel the need to chronicle every aspect of her life on the internet. In a world that seems filled to overflowing with famous folks who share way too much personal information with their fans and followers, Johansson’s take on social media seems oddly refreshing.
The actress explained:
“I’m not good at sharing things. I can’t imagine being that exposed or involved. You’re anyways vulnerable in every interview. That’s already out of your control. To try and have this medium that’s seemingly in your control and living there forever sounds elating, but people can take even that and rip it apart.”
If Johansson suddenly changed her mind and started posting sexy selfies on Instagram tomorrow, chances are millions of people would spend countless hours staring blankly at the pics. Unfortunately for her fans, Scarlett is a little tired of the “sex symbol” label, which means the aforementioned scenario probably isn’t going to happen in our lifetime.
Johansson said during a recent interview:
“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. With [male actors] it just doesn’t happen the same way. You can be every woman’s fantasy and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever.”
Instead of worrying about her personal life, Scarlett Johansson is hoping people will turn out to see her action flick Lucy later this summer. Although the movie was originally slated to arrive this August, Universal Pictures decided to move up the release date to July 25.
Johansson stars as Lucy, a drug mule who develops superhuman powers. Not surprisingly, our hero decides to use these new-found abilities to take down her enemies. Le Femme Nikita mastermind Luc Besson directed the flick.
