Scarlett Johansson likes to get “down and dirty” in her work

Washington: Scarlett Johansson admitted that she likes to get stuck in a role and is “up for every kind of challenge”. The ‘We Bought A Zoo’ actress plays zookeeper Kelly Foster alongside Matt Damon in the new movie.

“I think I``m up for every kind of challenge and I like to get down and dirty, yes. I really liked that aspect of Kelly, that she is a no-frills kind of girl, very grounded and practical, with that salt of the earth quality,” a website has quoted her as saying.

However, the 27-year-old beauty - who divorced actor Ryan Reynolds in December 2010 after two years of marriage - explained she has developed a “hard shell” in order to cope with the constant “batterings” she has suffered in the film industry.

“I learned at a really young age that you have to have something of a hard shell to take some of the batterings that you get in this industry. We’re constantly rejected and scrutinised and it``s important to take a lot of it with a pinch of sale in order to be able to survive and press on,” she added.
