Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson says she hates it when her fellow stars make “grandiose” statements about being a mum.
The actress, 30, and French husband Romain Dauriac became parents to their first child, a baby girl, in September.
She told News.com.au: “I’m such a newbie at this. I always really hate it when actors or people in the spotlight make giant grandiose statements about parenthood because it’s so, so personal.
“I don’t profess to know anything more about parenting than anybody else.”
She said that the experience had made her feel “very happy” and “very fortunate” and that she might choose to “work less”.
“It might make me more discerning,” she said of her film work.
Scarlett added: “I think my mom, really more than anything, shaped me in many ways. She was very, very encouraging of our separate interests growing up.”
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star, who has a twin brother among her siblings, said: “She just made us feel that you could do whatever you wanted to do, as long as you really wanted to do it, and that’s why I got into acting.”
