Scarlett Johansson on the Internet: “I Try to Avoid It”

Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she usually steers clear of the internet. She admits that she has ended up googling herself in the past because she was curious about the results, but now she tries to avoid it because she doesn’t want to encounter the negativity it can often bring with it:

“You never find exactly what you’re looking for, so I try to avoid it whenever possible. I don’t spend a lot of time on the Internet. I have Googled myself before. The curiosity got the better of me… It wasn’t like I started trolling the Internet and suddenly had all this self-esteem.”

She says that she does hit up the web after an event to see how her outfit and makeup ended up looking on the red carpet. She comments that otherwise it isn’t always clear how nice her look came together unless she googles it to see the end result after all of her effort:

 “Mostly it’s just to see what I wore to an event, if it photographed well or how the make-up looked or something like that. I never see that stuff otherwise… I think everyone wants to see what they look like.”
