Scarlett Johansson: I've made it

Los Angeles - Scarlett Johansson feels she has "made it" after receiving a star on the Hollywood walk of fame.

The Avengers actress was recently recognised with a permanent tribute to her 20-year movie career and despite having a string of box office successes behind her, she admits it is only now she has been given the star that she feels successful.

She said: "I was totally thrilled. I feel very nostalgic about that kind of thing. I think it's a wonderful tradition and I felt like I'd finally made it. I really did.

Sex symbol

"I've been in the industry for 20 years and I've worked since I was kid, and it felt like a real milestone. Although I'm not sure where it is - I'm hoping outside one of those horrible shops on Hollywood Boulevard!"

Scarlett admits she has never wanted to be seen as a sex symbol, but is hopeful now she is getting older people will begin to think of her beyond her beauty.

She added to Total Film magazine: "I never wanted to be a sex symbol. I wanted to be a character actor.

"Those are the actors I often mostly admire.

"But I think women that are curvy can be pigeonholed in that bombshell thing.

"I never think of my characters that way. What can you do about it?

"As I get older, I think I'm seeing more multifaceted roles. I'm past the ingénue phase, which I'm very thankful for but I'm happy it's over." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
