Scarlett Johansson Says She's 'Barely Holding It Together' as a Working Mom

Scarlett Johansson spoke about the troubles of being a working mother.

“I don’t profess to know anything about parenting, anything more than anybody else, [but] being a working mom is an incredible challenge, [and] it’s an incredible gift,” Scarlett told ET of her two-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac. “I think you always feel a little bit of guilt… If you’re at work, you feel like you’re missing out on those special moments with your kid. If you’re with your kid, you feel like you’re not giving enough to your job. It’s a balance.”

“I have a lot of huge admiration for working moms,” Scarlett continued. “I’m barely, barely holding it together.”

It was just announced that Scarlett and husband Romain Dauriac have separated.

    just stop. scarlett is not a regular working mom and has no idea what working moms go through. she has plenty of help, tons of money and doesn’t work every day all year except for weekends.

    When you read this article just remember that her kid is a TODDLER. Imagine what it’ll be like while the child can talk, express her needs and wants, goes to school, is involved in her own interests (classes, play dates, sports, art, whatever), and when she’s a pre-teen and then a teen. Girl, the baby/toddler years are the EASY years.

    My guess is she’s rarely with her child, and THAT is the source of her guilt and her comment about barely holding it together. A mother will always feel a tug towards her child.

    More proof of how fake feminism/stupidity has destroyed society. U cant be a mother and work at the same time despite the illusion they’ve sold us. Unless, of course, u have a lotta money and understand what parenting is all about which apparently is not Scarlett’s case. U shouldnt have had that child, idiot, u lived under a rock?

  • LolaLola

    if she’s rarely with her child, it’s because she chooses to rarely be with her child.

  • lost_girl

    she has NO idea, she has nannies, cooks, and others who do everything for her, the average mom has NO Help, average women are lucky if her other half helps, when they can.., thats not even talking about single moms who do it ALL..

    I hate to throw shade, but the mother’s I know are working at minimum paid jobs (yes, plural) with little or no support. Scarlett is a talented and wealthy actress. My sympathies lie with the moms who actually work for a living.

  • VanityInsecurity

    this is a tad insulting. you really can’t compare your life to a woman working the daily grind to make ends meet.

    That was my whole point. Maybe I expressed it poorly, but I was trying to make the point of the source of her guilt being her preference for working and traveling.

    Why celebrities complain about working anyway? They only work on a movies once a year. She not working now. Are those that don’t work. Real people still have problems being a single mom and they put them in day care. She don’t have a nanny? Rachel Bilson complain too and she not working. But she never talk about it. She’s a single mom too with no help but her mom. Why haven’t Scarlett gotten any help. And no Hayden don’t help her either.Stop complaining and get some help.

    Delores must spend her days buying and then burning Rachel Bilson related products. 50% of The OC‘s DVD sales must come from her.
