OTRC: Scarlett Johansson thinks ScarJo nickname is 'awful'

Scarlett Johnasson is not a fan of her gossip tabloid nickname ScarJo. In fact, the actress said in a recent interview that it's "awful."

"It's a laziness," the 27-year-old actress told USA Today in an interview about the nickname. "People can't actually say the whole name? It's just bizarre."

"So Cate Blanchett is not, like, 'CaBla'? Why is that? Why do I have to get stuck," she added. "If I hear somebody say that, I know I don't know them at all."

The actress might have been seeing the nick name a lot in reports recently because of her divorce from ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, rumors about romantic links and the leak of her nude photos in late September.

"One of the best things I learned this year was to not read any tabloid, gossipy, you know, garbage. It really keeps you on the straight and narrow," she told the newspaper. And while some of it kind of leaks in occasionally, it's really nice to not know what crazy stories"

Up next for Johansson is the upcoming film "We Bought A Zoo" with Matt Damon. In the film, Johansson plays a zookeeper who helps Damon's character run his recently purchased zoo.

"This film is challenging in the sense that the character has a lot of conviction," Johansson said. "And I think to play a character with conviction, you have to have it yourself."

The film hits theaters on December 23. Check out the trailer below.
