|'I'm not a sex symbol'|
30 March 2012
'Lost in Translation' star Scarlett Johansson doesn't consider herself a sex symbol and isn't sure why she has been given that tag.
The 27-year-old actress may be lusted after by men all over the world but she doesn't think of herself as a very attractive woman, reported Contactmusic.
"I don't know, I don't think of myself that way. It's alright for now. I'm convinced that obviously in a couple of years' time it will be somebody else. I won't be as interesting that way," she said.
Johansson, who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, doesn't think her sex symbol status has been cultivated by her films because she doesn't consider many of the characters she has portrayed to be overtly sexual.
"I actually have not played that many sexy characters! Of course you could say the characters I played maybe in 'Match Point', maybe in 'Black Dahlia' (are sexy). But the characters I play aren't really traditionally sexy, I don't think.
"I don't think I was particularly sexy in 'Lost in Translation' or particularly sexy in 'The Other Boleyn Girl'... I think it's probably a reaction to the fact that I'm curvy and confident about it, maybe," she added.
