Scarlett Johansson’s Daughter Rose Gives Her ‘Explosive’ Joy

04/24/2015 at 11:00 PM ET

Scarlett Johansson might be onto something great.

“When I’m just hanging out with [my daughter] and we’re doing silly stuff and if I make her laugh, the feeling of joy I have is explosive … If only you could actually bottle that and carry it around,” the Avengers: Age of Ultron actress tells Parade.

In this Sunday’s issue of the magazine, Johansson, 30, opens up about being a celebrity mother to daughter Rose Dorothy, who was born in September.

“It’s hard. On the one hand, you don’t want to isolate your kids, but you don’t want to make your kids feel like freaks: There’s this fascination with famous kids, like they’re celebrity spawn,” she says. “At some point, you have to take your life back and say, ‘You know what? If I feel like picking up my dry cleaning and if someone’s going to photograph me doing it, so what?'”

She adds, “Part of being with your kids is making them feel as safe and normal as you can.”

Scarlett Johansson Hates When Celebs Make ‘Grandiose Statements About Parenthood’

04/14/2015 at 09:00 AM ET

Scarlett Johansson isn’t one to gloss over the truth.

In an interview with the Australian Daily Telegraph, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star admits that she is “such a newbie” at parenting Rose Dorothy, her daughter with husband Romain Dauriac.

“I always really hate it when actors or people in the spotlight make giant grandiose statements about parenthood because it’s so, so personal,” she says. “I don’t profess to know anything more about parenting than anybody else.”

Johansson, 30, also talks about how her priorities have shifted since Rose was born in September.

“Before, I just made the choices that were affecting me, but now I’m responsible for somebody else,” she says. “Eventually, I will have to work less, and it might even make me more discerning.”

Scarlett Johansson: My Daughter Looks ‘Completely Different’ Than I Imagined

02/09/2015 at 01:00 PM ET

Before she became a mother, Scarlett Johansson imagined that magical moment when she would meet her daughter.

Fast-forward to when Rose Dorothy was born, and that baby in the actress’s dream was nowhere to be found.

“When she came out of me, I was so surprised,” Johansson, 30, says in the March issue of W magazine.

“I had a very strong picture in my mind of what my baby would look like. And, of course, she is completely different.”

The first-time mama adds, “Perfect, but not what I’d imagined.”
