Scarlett Johansson reveals ‘there’s a certain loneliness to being a single parent’

Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she felt lonely and in isolation after her harrowing divorce in an upcoming Netflix original Marriage Story.

Johansson who plays the character of Nicole, a once-famous actress who is soul-searching for a new identity after divorce with her husband, a renowned theatre director in New York.

The Avengers starlet said she feels a personal connect with this character as she herself went through a painful divorce while shooting for the film.

“I’ve felt in the past – there’s such a loneliness to being a single parent,” said Johansson.

She added, “Obviously, it’s a lot of many different things at once, but there can be a loneliness and this constant feeling of doubt, that you don’t know what the hell you’re doing and you don’t have anyone else to bounce it off of.”

Parenting solo brings a specific kind of isolation, she noted. “You’re also spending a lot of time alone with a child, without the company of another adult, which is hard for long periods of time. You maybe have doubts about your life: How did I get here? It’s not all the time … but those moments creep in, and they creep in at weird times.”

Meanwhile, Johansson will be tying the knot with Colin Jost in a dream wedding soon.

  1. She’s a good actress and beautiful to look at, but I think she is very ugly and narcissistic on the inside. Some people just shouldn’t be parents, and I think she is one of those people.
