SCARLETT JOHANSSON QUOTES

Scarlett Johansson quote

I'm a little bit of an adult and still a bit of a kid. I hope I never lose enthusiasm for things like road trips and Cheerios.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

I think people today are very cynical. They need to bring other people down. Reality television and tabloid magazines—never before did we need to see movie stars taking out their garbage. But all of a sudden, it’s front-page news—trying to figure out who’s dating whom, all that stuff. Who cares?

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, PARADE Magazine, Mar. 11, 2007

I find beauty in unusual things, like hanging your head out the window or sitting on a fire escape.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

You work hard making independent films for fourteen years and you get voted best breasts.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Esquire Magazine, Nov. 2006

When I'm single, I don't focus. I focus on a guy if he's a boyfriend, but I don't focus on finding a boyfriend. They're never around when you want them.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

Contrary to popular belief, I'm not promiscuous. There does seem to be a mistaken belief out there that I am sexually available somehow — which is not to say that I'm not open-minded about sex.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, London Telegraph, Dec. 10, 2006

I wouldn't say I'm a serial monogamist ... I mean, I went through periods of time when I was, ah, single. But when I'm in a relationship, I'm in a relationship.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Washington Post, Oct. 9, 2006

I do think on some basic level we are animals and by instinct we kind of breed accordingly. But, as much as I believe that, I work really hard when I'm in a relationship to make it work in a monogamous way.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, London Telegraph, Dec. 10, 2006

I get tested for HIV twice a year. . . One has to be socially aware. It's part of being a decent human to be tested for STDs. It's just disgusting behaviour when people don't. It's so irresponsible.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, London Telegraph, Dec. 10, 2006

It's so difficult to feel comfortable in the body you have. You always want to look a different way, taller or thinner, whatever it may be. I still struggle with it. I think everybody does.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

I once heard that women dress for women -- not for men -- and I think that has some truth to it. Men, what do they know? They don't know if you gain or lose five pounds. They're oblivious to those kinds of things. A lot of men will say "I like you just as you are." And you're like "But I'm bloated!" If they're attracted to you, they're attracted to you.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Cosmo Magazine, Sep. 2005

It's important not to lose who you are in a relationship just because it's nice to cuddle with somebody.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Seventeen Magazine, May 2007

Being a movie star is a quality that somebody sort of embodies, and being a celebrity is something that people give to you. It has to do with being recognizable, as opposed to something that people recognize in you. I just hope to make good movies. I know that sounds simple, but it's true.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, interview, Sep. 2003

You're married, and suddenly you have your own family. There's a nice comfort in that. That part of your life is certain ... You've got your home in that other person.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Good Housekeeping, Oct. 2010

I'd rather be with someone who's a little jealous than someone who's never jealous. There's something a little dead fish about them.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson Is 2013's Sexiest Woman Alive", Esquire, November 2013

I would way rather not have middle ground. I would way rather fail in someone's eyes than be that sort of tepid ... that's the worst.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, The Guardian, March 16, 2014

I don't know necessarily that it's about the applause. Of course, that's always welcome.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson on Finding Love and Protecting Her Daughter", Parade, April 23, 2015

I read a lot of things about myself that aren't true ... I've read that I've been with people I've never met.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Wilde about the girl", Sydney Morning Herald, June 13, 2005

You know, I gotta hustle. I'm a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business, right?

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson Is 2013's Sexiest Woman Alive", Esquire, November 2013

Scarlett Johansson quote

I think Natasha's a very strategic thinker and that's her strongpoint. Her superpowers, if you want to call them that, are her experience, her ability to make usually the right decision in a quick moment, in a tight minute. And she's not personally invested. I mean, thatís what she tells herself anyway. And so that keeps her head kind of level and clear.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Captain America: Civil War star Scarlett Johansson on the scrutiny of Black Widow", Entertainment Weekly, December 3, 2015

For me, at this point, I think it much more interesting for me to look at something and know that I can play it, but not know how, rather than to look at something and go, 'Ah, I can do that.' And then just do it.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, interview, The Observer, March 16, 2014

I think living in New York keeps you pretty grounded. I'm not particularly fancy.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, Esquire, "The Scarlett Johansson Interview", November 27, 2013

There are countries at war, there's terrorism, global warming, and we're like, 'We should definitely cut the budget for Planned Parenthood. Let's take away the availability of women's health initiatives!'... It's nuts.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson on Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood: 'We're Moving Backward'", Cosmopolitan, April 7, 2016

Your relationship with a live audience is very different than your relationship with the movie camera. It used to be even more so when we used actual film. Then the actors could hear the film running through the camera. It felt like a living organism is witnessing what you're doing. But we don't have that anymore.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson on Finding Love and Protecting Her Daughter", Parade, April 23, 2015

There's luxury in being near home. When you spend a lot of time, like I do, just standing around and waiting, or being moved from place to place, every minute gets consumed by something someone else has set up for you. And it's not like I'm always in a beautiful place wearing something gorgeous. I've stood around bogs wearing half a million dollars' worth of jewelry, up to my knees in the rot, thinking how much more or less the place smelled like a sewer than it did the day before. And that is not what you'd call a problem exactly; it just wears you out. What I want to do right now is sleep late, read the paper. I've come to see that there's something pretty great about having two hours to read.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson Is 2013's Sexiest Woman Alive", Esquire, November 2013

Chickens scare me. I don't like them.... They're vicious. I had heard the term 'pecking order,' but I had no idea what it really meant until I got to see a large group of chickens in a coop. That is some ugly business.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson Is 2013's Sexiest Woman Alive", Esquire, November 2013

Certainly fame is part of me. Does it have to be totally separate? I don't think so. The fact that I have built this career is a big part of who I am. It's not all of me, but it's certainly part of me. The person would have to love that part of me, too. It's definitely a challenge, especially when you're with somebody who's not in the entertainment industry.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON, "Scarlett Johansson on Finding Love and Protecting Her Daughter", Parade, April 23, 2015

Long, long ago, I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable ... but, like, so attractively unavailable. You have to get to your breaking point ... rock bottom is the moment when you're like, 'I've lost myself. Why am I standing outside this bar at 1:30 in the morning texting while my friends are inside? Or taking a taxi to see him at some ungodly hour? This isn't me.' That is the moment you've gotta cut it off. Otherwise, it will keep coming back, suck your blood.
