Scarlett Johansson to 'WSJ': I 'Selfishly' Want a Career & Family

Scarlett Johansson is glowing on the cover of WSJ. Magazine‘s April 2014 issue, on newsstands April 5.

Here’s what the 29-year-old pregnant Captain America actress had to share with the mag:

On wanting a family and a career: “It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success. There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theatre. I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”

On double standards for men: “With [male actors] it just doesn’t happen that way. You can be every woman’s fantasy, and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever.”

On taking roles in big blockbusters: “I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I wanted to stretch myself physically, out of my comfort zone, and still succeed. I’m probably like most actors. We have huge egos, and you want to know you can be successful, no matter what. I don’t to be pigeonholed in one genre or budget or whatever.”
