Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson opened up about the pressure of staying thin and difficulties faced by female actresses when trying to carve their name in Hollywood.

The Avengers actress claimed that the pressure was bad in the past but presently turned much worse in comparison.

According to a report, Johansson quoted saying,

“There has always been pressure on actors to stay thin. There’s a scene in one of my favorite movies, ‘All About Eve’, where Bette Davis is circling around the room, horribly upset about something, and she picks up chocolate… puts it down… picks it up again… puts it down again… finally, she gives in and eats it, but only after a huge struggle!”

Johansson said she opts for a more ‘natural method’ for dieting now, her aim is to be ‘slim by healthy’ with this lifestyle change.

“There’s a weight I like to maintain, which is slim but healthy. But there’s a healthy way to keep to that weight and there’s an unhealthy way,” said Johannson.

Even now, her paranoia is extreme towards her health,

“I don’t have any comment on how other people choose to live their lives – but for me, I am far too paranoid about my own health to take the road of eating disorders. I’d rather just stay in shape the natural way.”

Scarlett always kept her personal life private,  she claims,

“There’s a classy way of going about keeping your privacy. There’s an aggressive way to do it, and there’s a quieter way, and because I am not an aggressive person, I choose just to lie low, which is not that hard to do. Johansson does not “struggle with my public persona. Because it doesn’t matter to me how people perceive me from afar. Of course, it matters how people who know me perceive me, but that’s a different matter.”
