Avengers Assemble babe Scarlett Johansson believes courage is important

14 March 2012

She'll next be seen in the Friday release of We Bought a Zoo alongside Bourne franchise hero Matt Damon and gorgeous star Scarlett Johansson has said that courage is important in the entertainment industry.

The multi award winning actress revealed that she has always been brave when it comes to pursuing her art, as she believes that the craft of acting demands it and tells Stylist "When I was a child, I auditioned fearlessly and had a lot of courage, and the fact that I am here today is probably testament to my 20 seconds of courage back then, I think in the film industry, you have to have that courage.

Actors are asked to do things that are out of their comfort zone all the time, whether that's hanging on the side of a building or crawling through the woods, or revealing yourself emotionally. You find yourself thinking, 'What am I doing? This is crazy! Oh, the camera is rolling? Oh god, I'm just going to have to wing it'."

And while the Avengers Assemble babe considers herself to be a strong person, she admits to having a vulnerable side and aims to learn something from her difficulties when they arise adding "It's only human that sometimes some things will get to you. But most of the time I think things happen for a good reason. I know that probably sounds idealistic, but it's so true.

The projects that I have wanted to work on and haven't got, or when something hasn't gone right for me, those times have forced me to use my brain in a different kind of way, and to approach things differently. It's good to have that challenge; it makes you a better actor and a stronger person."

Johansson stars alongside Elle Fanning, Carla Gallo, Thomas Haden Church, Patrick Fugit and Angus MacFadyen in the Cameron Crowe directed film based on real life events.
