What's Up with Scarlett Johansson?

This is from the June 14 Star Magazine issue.


SCARLETT JOHANSSON: IS SHE A DIVA IN THE MAKING?

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson may have a career that older actresses envy, but off-camera, the 19-year-old just wants to act her age. Unfortunately, behaving like a normal girl has proved difficult for Scarlett, whose mother and management team are constantly trying to make her seem more sophisticated, according to sources. "They want her to be the next Meryl Streep," a friend told an insider. "They see her as a leading lady, playing roles from the ages of 18 to 30 and expect her to look the part."

In addition, says the insider, Scarlett is often coached to sound more mature than she really is. "She gets fed up because even when she's not acting," says the friend, "she's being forced to behave like a different person."

Sources say her mom's close control has had a particularly bad effect on Scarlett during the filming of her new movie Synergy, in which she plays the daughter of an advertising exec. "When Scarlett's mother is on the set, Scarlett acts childish, and can be temperamental," an on-set source tells Star. "I heard she even goes into her trailer to color in coloring books."

But another friend comes to Scarlett's defense, saying the actress has "never been anything less than professional."

"It's hard for most people to remember that Scarlett is only 19," adds the other friend. "She's really torn between being the person she is -- a wild, Avril Lavigne-type club girl -- and being what her manager mom and reps want her to be -- a leading lady."
