Scarlett Johansson made the cut on Sunday’s broadcast of Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 and confessed she has hang-ups about her body. ‘It’s an okay body. I wouldn’t say it’s particularly remarkable though. I don’t like my thighs, my mid section,’ said the 30-year-old actress. Asked whether she minded being thought of as ‘hot’ she said: ‘I never put on a hot face, so I don’t know what it means to act seductively.’
But she said the secret to acting out a realistic hot scene was being ‘totally without judgment’. ‘It’s sort of liberating,’ she said. ‘It’s challenging, but you’ve just got to stay in the moment.’ Scarlett, who gave birth to daughter Rose Dorothy in September, described being a new mother as ‘wonderful and exhausting’ and said she was looking after her child herself.
‘I’m nursing and I love it. It’s the best way to get back in shape,’ she said. Despite marrying Romain Dauriac this year, the actress said she still stood by her belief that humans are not monogamous by nature. ‘I think being in a committed relationship takes work,’ she explained. ‘It’s very easy to leave a situation when it gets uncomfortable. It’s challenging. But when it works it’s really worth it.’
Walters named George Clooney’s wife, Amal Alamuddin, as the most fascinating person of 2014 after the 36-year-old lawyer was thrust into the public eye thanks to her very high profile marriage. At the start of the show Walters proudly told viewers that ‘most of our fascinating people are women this year’, even though her top 10 contained five men and five women.
Rather than focus on Amal’s successful career as a human rights lawyer, the TV host said she had been given the top spot because she snapped up 53-year-old Clooney as her husband.
