Scarlett Johansson is having too much "fun" with her career
The 28-year-old actress - who is dating French journalist Romain Dauriac - definitely wants to have kids in the future but at the moment she is enjoying such a productive and rewarding period of acting she doesn`t want to take time out to have a baby.
Scarlett`s recent films include `We Bought a Zoo`, `The Avengers` and `Hitchcock` and she has five films coming out in the next 18 months, including another outing as super-spy Black Widow in `Captain America: The Winter Soldier`.
Speaking in the October issue of Harper`s Bazaar magazine, she said: "Eventually I want to have a family, and that would be my focus, but right now I`m having fun with it. There have been times in my career where I`ve struggled to find ... I was stuck for a while. It was more difficult, maybe, to find the right thing to do. Now I`m enjoying a really productive, creative period."
Scarlett - who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds - currently splits her time between Romain`s home in his native Paris and her apartment in her hometown of New York.
Although she is one of the world`s most recognisable actresses she doesn`t let her fame stop her from living a normal life and Scarlett actively makes an effort to avoid having a showbiz lifestyle.
She explained: "Luckily, I`m relatively uninteresting. I`ve always tried, as much as possible, to keep the prying eye at arm`s length, which doesn`t always work in my favour - but I think if you establish that early on, you remain relatively unscathed. As I get older, I realise what an incredible waste of time it is to scurry around like some kind of urchin. I want to enjoy things, like just walking around my city."
