Scarlett Johansson Reflects on Not Getting Roles: ‘I’ve Basically Made a Career Out of Being Second Choice’

Scarlett Johansson is on the cover of the latest issue of Parade, out now.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Avengers actress had to say…

On motherhood in Manhattan, where she grew up: “One of the great privileges of raising your kids where you grew up is that you get to do the stuff and see the things you did when you were a kid.”

On losing on several roles, including, at first, the part of Black Widow to Emily Blunt: “Since a very young age, I’ve been rejected constantly…the best call you can receive is after you are rejected for something and then you get it. You appreciate it more. I’ve basically made a career out of being second choice.”

On fiance Colin Jost: “What you see is what you get with him. He’s very optimistic, easygoing, funny, nice, and those are the qualities that really drew me to him.”

On a potential wedding date: “‘No comment,’ she says with a laugh. But she has called him ‘the love of my life.’”
