Scarlett Johansson feels ''insulted'' by the name 'ScarJo'.

The 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' star thinks the nickname given to her in the media makes her sound like a ''tacky pop star'' - such as Jennifer Lopez, who is considered to have started the trend with her title J.Lo - and is ''insulting'' to her as a serious actress.

Scarlett told the May issue of Glamour Magazine: ''I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It's lazy and flippant. There's something insulting about it.''

The 29-year-old actress claims she is also irritated by the media's obsession with how she looks and thinks it is completely unfair because it is something male actors don't have to endure.

Scarlett fumed: ''Actresses get stupid questions asked of them all the time, like, 'How do you stay sexy?' or 'What's your sexiest quality?' All these ridiculous things you would never ask a man.''

Scarlett's complaint didn't stop there as she expressed her disappointment at not being recognised by the media for her entire body of work and not just her breakout role 'Lost in Translation' in 2003.

She said: ''When I made 'Lost in Translation', I was 17. Now I'm 29 ... That's a normal side effect of being a young actor.

'You're captured in a certain time of your life, and it's hard for people to move past that.''
