Scarlett Johansson Visits CBS SUNDAY MORNING Today
Hollywood superstar Scarlett Johansson tells CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood that she hates the nickname "ScarJo" which she's acquired in the media as her popularity has risen.
"That's terrible," she tells Anthony Mason, laughing. "It's so terrible. I hate that name."
Johansson, now starring in the Broadway production of "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof," says the "ScarJo" label is "so crazy." No one in her family calls her that name, she tells Mason in a wide-ranging interview to be broadcast on CBS SUNDAY MORNING today, Jan. 13, 2013 (9:00 AM ET) on the CBS Television Network.
"Hopefully it's going to go away some time," Johansson tells Mason, adding she remembered when it started happening. "But it seemed, like, odd. Like, there's so many actors you would never, like - Kate Winslet was, like, KaWi, KaWi, KaWi. I don't know. Like, why me?"
Mason's full interview with Johansson will be broadcast today, Jan. 13, 2013 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
