Scarlett Johansson has had a major 2014 — she’s had a baby, gotten secretly married, starred in a few hit movies and now been named to Barbara Walters’s Most Fascinating People of 2014. But even the woman Esquire dubbed 2013’s Sexiest Woman Alive still has some body hangups.
“It’s an okay body. I wouldn’t say it’s particularly remarkable though,” she said of her famous figure in Sunday’s televised interview with Walters. “I don’t like my thighs, my mid section.” And she refuted any claims to being “sexy,” saying, “I never put on a sexy face, so I don’t know what it means to act seductively.”
Johansson also talked a bit about motherhood to newborn Rose Dorothy; she’s called it “magical and exhausting,” and as it turns out, it’s also great at helping her lose the baby weight. “I’m nursing and I love it. It’s the best way to get back in shape,” she said.
The actress, 30, also recently opened up to Style.com about trying to get back into her gym routine. “I’m not one that goes out to spas and gets treatments. If anything, it’s just about trying to find time to go to the gym. You just have to make whatever time you can,” she says. And when she does manage to get out for a workout, “I do the same fitness routine as my big muscle-man trainer. A lot of it is endurance, stability, and strength training. I like to work up a sweat. I’ve tried Pilates and yoga and all that, and I like to dabble in different things, but I always come back to a good old-fashioned athletic, full-body workout.”
And as for the one big unanswered question we’ve been dying to know sinceshe chopped off her hair in July: Why the sudden change? “I don’t know — I just wanted to cut it, I guess,” she said. “I’m really bad at doing my hair. I think I got sick of putting it in a ponytail or piling it under a wig and having that take up time.”
