Scarlett Johansson doesn't think of herself as a sex symbol.
The 27-year-old actress is lusted after by men all over the world but she doesn't think of herself as a very attractive woman.
When quizzed on how she feels about being a "sexy icon", she said: "I don't know, I don't think of myself that way. It's alright for now. I'm convinced that obviously in a couple of years' time it will be somebody else. I won't be as interesting that way."
Scarlett - who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds - doesn't think her sex symbol status has been cultivated by her films because she doesn't consider many of the characters she has portrayed to overtly sexual.
The screen star - who can next be seen battling villains in a skin-tight catsuit as Black Widow in 'Avengers Assemble' - told Empire magazine: "I actually have not played that many sexy characters! Of course you could say the characters I played maybe in 'Match Point', maybe in 'Black Dahlia' (are sexy). But the characters I play aren't really traditionally sexy, I don't think. I don't think I was particularly sexy in 'Lost in Translation' or particularly sexy in 'The Other Boleyn Girl' ... I think it's probably a reaction to the fact that I'm curvy and confident about it, maybe."
