ScarJo: My body's not all that

Scarlett Johansson has the same body hang ups as everyone else.

The 30-year-old actress confirmed the birth of her first child, daughter Rose Dorothy in September with husband Romain Dauriac. But despite being named as one of the world's sexiest women, Scarlett isn't 100 per cent happy with her figure.

"It's an okay body. I wouldn't say it's particularly remarkable though. I don't like my thighs, my mid section," she confessed to Barbara Walters during her The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 show.

Despite her insecurities, the new mom has put her curves on show during her career and had a nude scene in 2013 film Under the Skin. The legendary host asked if she minded being thought of as sexy and Scarlett admitted she finds it a bit perplexing.

"I never put on a sexy face, so I don't know what it means to act seductively," she said.

Regardless of this, the Avengers actress isn't opposed to filming a sex scene. For Scarlett, it's all about being "totally without judgement".

"It's sort of liberating," she said. "It's challenging, but you've just got to stay in the moment."

Hopefully new husband Romain doesn't mind his wife getting up close and personal with her co-stars for the sake of a role. Scarlett also revealed that while enjoying wedded bliss with the French journalist, she still stands by her view 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."
