Scarlett Johansson: 'Don't call me ScarJo'

Tuesday April 8, 2014

Scarlett Johansson has yet again spoken out about her feelings regarding her nickname “ScarJo”.

It is clear the star has stuck to her opinion as she recently spoke out to Glamour magazine branding the nickname “tacky” and “insulting”.

“It’s awful!” the 29-year-old actress said, claiming it comes down to laziness.

"It's a laziness ... People can't actually say the whole name? It's just bizarre ... so Cate Blanchett is not, like, 'CaBla'? Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck with [ScarJo]?" she continued, clearly not impressed.

But the moniker isn't the only complaint she's had recently. The New Yorker told Glamour magazine she is struggling to get people to recognise her for her entire body of works, and not only her first hit film Lost In Translation.

“I was only 17!...You're captured in a certain time of your life, and it's hard for people to move past that”.
