Scarlett Johansson admits ‘fragile’ ego keeps her off social media

Scarlett Johansson admitted she is “too fragile of a person” to be on social media.

“I can’t. My ego is too fragile,” the “Black Widow” star said on Dear Media’s “The Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast” Monday. “I can’t deal with it. My brain is too fragile. I’m like a delicate flower.”

Johansson, 38, shared that she once tried using Instagram for three days before noticing she was going down a rabbit hole.

“I spent 20 minutes looking at somebody’s Instagram page who worked for a friend of mine … like, now I know you have a pit bull and two daughters and you live in Burbank,” she said, noting that she “wasted 17 minutes” of her time looking at the profile.

However, the Oscar nominee did admit that she is able to get doses of social media interaction through her skincare company’s account.


The Outset — co-founded by Johansson and Kate Foster — occasionally features videos created by the business partners, which the movie star herself jokingly called “terrible.”

“I mean, it’s definitely fun. Anytime I see it in the office, I then become a 3-year-old with their mom’s phone where I’m completely absorbed into it,” Johansson shared, adding, “It’s fun, though.”

The Instagram page for The Outset, which celebrated a year of business in March, includes a slew of videos featuring the “Marriage Story” star promoting her business, but as for Johansson’s personal usage, she said she “knows” she cannot have the apps herself.

Johansson also noted that she will occasionally make appearances on her skincare line’s TikTok account to “read and perform reviews,” but she does not look at the video-sharing platform on her own time.



The Tony winner — who shares daughter Rose, 8, with ex-husband Romain Dauriac and son Cosmo, 1, with current spouse Colin Jost — has justified her choice to stay social media-free in the past, sharing with Interview magazine in 2011 that she did not “feel the need to” brand herself “in that way.”

What do you think? Post a comment.
“But as a means to share information and raise awareness of things, I think these social-networking platforms are unprecedented,” she said at the time.


But at the end of the day, Johansson is adamant about staying off the apps.

“I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life,” she said.
