Scarlett Johansson Quotes

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Character

Everything you do is different, and you find different chords in every character that you play that strike true with you.

I have an obsessive character. I manicure my nails at three in the morning because nobody else can do it the right way. Maybe that’s the secret to my success.

As an actor, anything

As an actor, anything that you have to help get you into character is helpful.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Children

It’s so archaic. It’s just, like, bizarre to me. I feel like in 10 or 15 years’ time our children are going to look back and say, ‘What? You were around when gay people weren’t allowed to get married?’

I’m not a statistician, but it doesn’t take a genious to work out that 100 million children being denied an education is ridiculous. There is nothing lost in translation here, it’s obvious that’s wrong.

We are supposed to be liberated in America but if our President [George W. Bush] had his way, we wouldn’t be educated about sex at all. Every woman would have six children and we wouldn’t be able to have abortions.

My family grew up relying on public assistance to help provide meals for our family. Child hunger in America is a real and often overlooked problem, but one that together, we can fix.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On County

Having visited Oxfam-funded school programs in rural communities has made me realise how vital education is to developing countries in bringing people out of poverty and giving them a sense of dignity, self-worth and confidence.

If Occupy Wall Street

If Occupy Wall Street was actually a march, and people from all around the country could collect and march toward Washington, D.C., as part of this massive movement of people . . . I think that kind of pressure is much more powerful than a sit-in that seems to be a little unorganized.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Film

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

I love to sing. I don’t think it’s strange for singers to act, or painters to sculpt. I don’t want to ever feel like I’m cornered into one expression of creativity because I’m successful at making films or being an actor. I guess it’s best to not paint yourself into that corner.

Every film is exciting because I get new tools and cool new things to do.

Every actor has a production company already. It’s just a matter of producing your own films under the label of your own production company.

I would never knowingly go into a film that I wouldn’t pay to see, or something that didn’t challenge me.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Giving

I don’t profess to know anything about marriage that anybody else doesn’t know, or how to make it right. I don’t want to read about somebody who’s giving me relationship advice. So I try to keep some things for myself, to have a private life.

LA's a very hard place

LA’s a very hard place to be unless you have people there that love you. It can be very, very lonely, and it can eat you up if you don’t take care of yourself. In LA, nobody wants to talk to each other, everybody’s giving each other catty looks.

I’m not telling people where to give money, but if there is to be a spotlight shed on me, then I’d like to direct that spotlight onto causes I think are worthy or onto interesting, progressive figures.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Home

For day-to-day beauty, I’m a Q-tip and Vaseline kind of girl. I never leave home without Q-tips – they’re a great fix for any makeup emergencies.

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.

My father is from Copenhagen and he lived there until he was in his late 20s. We always grew up with a lot of Danish culture at home. My mother is Jewish but we always celebrated Christmas because we loved the traditions of Danish Christmas.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Opportunity

You have Cameron Crowe write an incredible monologue for you just based on the things that you’re talking about. It just became this opportunity that was too exciting a process to pass up.

I believe that luck is opportunity meeting preparation.

When we live our lives

When we live our lives everyday, we’re met by opportunities, and most of us don’t even recognize them.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Focus

I’m happiest when I have something to focus my energy on.

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.

I think you have to protect your private life as much as you possibly can, and, at the same time, find ways to redirect that focus and turn the glare into a positive thing. I don’t know how you do it. I don’t know how anybody’s ever done it.

I definitely believe in plastic surgery. I don’t want to be an old hag. There’s no fun in that.

I don’t know if I’ve got swept up. It’s so shocking when you hear that Calvin Klein wants you for their new campaign. You’re like “who me?”. I guess you have to decide where you draw the line between you saying, this is fun, pretty and fabulous, and being over-exposed.

You have to believe that you can act and that you’re the right person for the job but I think it’s good to not always know how you’re going to do it. The fun part is trying to figure it out.

Scarlett Johansson Quotes On Reality

The truth isn't all

The truth isn’t all things to all people all of the time.

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?

As a person in the public eye, I have always felt that if I have the good fortune of being able to shed a spotlight on different causes that I feel passionately about…

I’m just a big believer in ‘you must love yourself before you can love anybody else,’ and I think for me that breeds the most inspired relationships.

It’s important for people to figure out their own lives before involving someone else – to gauge where you are and work on your own issues.

I love road trips, I love driving, I love finding little towns. I just think it’s the best way to travel.
