  • Who new that the Hollywood sex symbol wasn't a fan of that world famous figure?

    She’s often voted one of the most beautiful women in the world, so it might come as a surprise to learn that ex-MC cover star, Scarlett Johansson, isn’t a big fan of her figure.

    Talking to US TV host, Barbara Waters, the starlet said, ‘It’s an okay body. I wouldn’t say it’s particularly remarkable, though. I don’t like my thighs, my midsection.’

    Scarlett also opened up about her image as a sexy symbol, saying ‘I never put on a sexy face, so I don’t know what it means to act seductively.’

    We think millions of men worldwide would disagree with Scarlett’s comments, but she did give a nod to her public persona when talking about filming ‘realistic’ sex scenes: ‘It’s sort of liberating. It’s challenging, but you’ve just got to stay in the moment.’

    Scarlett, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, wed French Journalist, Romain Dauriac in a secret ceremony in Montana last October. The couple also welcomed a baby girl, Rose Dorothy. Scarlett said of motherhood and marriage, ‘It’s wonderful and exhausting. The love is just unbelievable. It’s very overwhelming. I’m nursing and I love it. It’s the best way to get back in shape.’

    ‘I think being in a committed relationship takes work. It’s very easy to leave a situation when it gets uncomfortable. It’s challenging. But when it works it’s really worth it.’
