Scarlett’s lucky life

Scarlett Johansson says her success is down to “long hours and luck.” The 24-year-old actress admits she feels very fortunate to be able to make a living from acting, adding her accomplishments are thanks to hard work and chance. She said, “I feel incredibly lucky to have had success, because I’ve seen and I know so many talented people that never get the opportunity. But I am a big believer that putting in the actual hours is kind of what makes a successful career and a lot of luck, too, of course.” Scarlett, who can soon be seen starring in new movie He’s Just Not That Into You — revealed she does not see her life as extraordinary and isn’t surprised by the amount of attention she receives as she has worked hard to build a career since she was a child. She said, “It’s hard to have a perspective, because I’m living it. I feel like perhaps when I’m older, and can look back on this whole time — my early 20s, and my later teens — maybe then I feel like in some time, I might have a better perspective on that.”
