Pregnant Scarlett Johansson Lost Desire to Act
Scarlett Johansson is pregnant and expecting a baby later this year. She has revealed that earlier she lost her desire to act, though this was before her pregnancy, so the soon-to-be arriving baby had nothing to do with her lack of desire.
But Johansson says getting on stage reinvigorated her love of acting.
The 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' actress - who is expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Dauriac - felt ''uninspired'' by her work and lost her sense of ''purpose'' until she took on a role in the 2009 Broadway revival of 'A View from the Bridge'.
She admitted: ''I was uninspired by my job for a period of time. I didn't really understand what the purpose of it was, other than to stay relevant, which is so not what it's about. But doing the play, I realised I could still own my own performance, that it was mine to present however I wanted to.''
The 29-year-old beauty says she has always been competitive, and was so determined to land a role as Black Widow in the 'Avengers' series, she dyed her hair red ahead of a second meeting with director Jon Favreau.
She told the new edition of Vanity Fair magazine: ''If you want something, you have to go for it.
''That's something I learned early on. I was really competitive at a young age.''
And Scarlett also admitted she has no interest in social media.
She said: ''All of it drives me crazy.''
