Scarlett Johansson says she's tender with children

08/27/2007 at 10:31 AM ET

ActressScarlett Johansson, 22, claimed working with Nicholas Art, 8, in the upcoming film The Nanny Diaries made her realize she would like to have children of her own someday. Scarlett said she would also considering adopting a child sometime in the future.

I would love to have kids. I haven’t really figured it out yet. I can see having a kid or two. And I would like to adopt children. I think I’m tender with children. I got along really well with [Nicholas]. It made me feel young, like you’re sort of 9 again.

For now, Scarlett will keep busy with a successful career; The Nanny Diaries opened this weekend.

On a personal side note, I have to kvell that I worked with Emma McLaughlin, one of the authors of The Nanny Diaries, many moons ago.  It’s been so exciting to watch the book shoot up the bestseller list, have Julia Roberts record its audiobook, and then be made into a movie.  Emma and her co-author Nicola Kraus’ third book, Dedication, drew inspiration from Usher and Chili’s relationship.

I saw a preview of this movie. Didn’t care for it at all. If you need to see it, save yourself for the DVD. It should be out soon.

Didn’t care for the book, either. Good example of bad writing.
