Scarlett Johansson lost the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” role to Rooney Mara, and some rumors in Hollywood attributed that to her being too “curvy.” Their loss, Scarlett seems to say. She recently rejected the unwritten rule that, in Hollywood, an actress has to be ultra-thin to be sexy.
No matter what the envious may say, Scarlett is one of the hottest Hollywood’s stars; so how does she do it?
Scarlett is very happy with her curves and does not conform to Hollywood’s “super skinny” ideals. She said, ““that being ultra-thin is not sexy at all. Women shouldn’t be forced to conform to unrealistic and unhealthy body images that the media promotes.”
Scarlett Johansson usually keeps private but she did say that she is a cheese fanatic and that’s her greatest vice.
Scarlett says that she eats well and walks a lot. That’s the advantage of living in a big city; you have to walk. She sometimes does yoga. She sticks to cardio and no weights and also does some boxing. She commits to 30 minutes of exercise every day. She says that pull ups, crunches, lunges, squats, jumping jacks, planks, walking, jogging and push ups are all exercises that can be performed without fancy trainers or gym memberships; so she sticks to that.
She did admit that she indulges in Burger King Cheeseburger meals once in a while.
Scarlett suggests picking a ‘healthier’ version of junk food. For example, she treats herself to a slice of vegetable pizza with a Diet Coke. For dinner she might have some Chinese takeout, “A little white rice, a little chicken and some egg drop soup.” Scarlett also eats a lot of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.
According to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), as many as 10 million females and 1 million males living in the US are fighting a life and death battle with anorexia or bulimia. Scarlett Johansson always promotes a healthy looking body image and hopes that media will do the same.
