Scarlett Johansson Dodges Pregnancy Questions That Shouldn’t Have Been Asked, Anyway


Earlier this month, several major entertainment outlets reported that Scarlett Johansson was expecting her first child with fiance Romain Dauriac.

The notoriously private actress never confirmed the news and at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier press conference on Wednesday, she carefully avoided any questions about pregnancy or motherhood. 
Mainly because  – spoiler alert – this movie has nothing to
do with motherhood.
But because reporters are never shy about trying to sneak in questions about a celebrity’s personal life (even when they’ve been explicitly told that she doesn’t want to talk about a certain topic), there was a point during the press conference where she was asked whether hypothetical motherhood would cause a shift in the types of roles she was offered. 
To this, she diplomatically replied, “I don’t know. I’ve been
in the industry for 20 years, so the way that the roles that
have become available to me change as I grow ‘older’, as I kind of
transition through life. I’m sure that will continue as I grow older.”

She added, “You hope to have a career that has longevity
and reflects the experiences that you have.
It’s what we all hope for, men and women alike.”
that’s where she nails it: she’s spent 2/3 of her life working in this industry and her roles have shifted accordingly. At this point in time (if
she actually is the rumored 4 or 5 months pregnant), she’ll be a mom at
29, which is hardly an age at which a beautiful and talented actress
would start getting “put out to pasture,” so to speak. 
here’s our take on this: if she doesn’t want to tell anyone she’s
pregnant, she shouldn’t have to. Just because she’s an actress
doesn’t mean she’s obligated to share all the details of her personal
You just do you, ScarJo. Go
make your own life choices and worry about the tabloids later never. 
In the film, Johansson reprises her role as Natasha Romanoff a.k.a. The Black Widow along with co-stars Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Chris Evans (Captain America). You can check out the trailer below.
