Scarlett Johansson feels ''comfortable'' as a young liberal woman with a sexual side.
Scarlett Johansson is "comfortable" with her sexuality.
The 26-year-old actress - who recently ended a relationship with Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn, which began just months after she filed for divorce from her husband of two years Ryan Reynolds last December - is untroubled by her sex symbol status but still seeks to maintain a private life, despite her fame.
She said: "I feel comfortable as a young woman - a young, modern, liberal person. I feel comfortable with my sexuality.
"However, I am protective of my private life. I don't think that if you are in the public eye your life is public. I am an actor. But you can't take things too seriously."
The blonde beauty also confesses she is a "dork" who doesn't feel particularly "mature" as a person.
Referring to Robert Redford - who she starred with as a teenager in the 'The Horse Whisperer' - she added to The Sun newspaper: "I don't feel mature. I always feel about the age I am. I know Robert Redford described me as, '13 going on 30', but that's not how I felt at the time.
