Scarlett Johansson is looking to slow down her pace now that she’s set to be a mother.

The expectant first time mom told reporters recently that she wants more out of life than just chasing down that next top movie role.


“It seems so stressful to not be able to spend time with your family because you’re constantly chasing the tail of your own success,” she said.

“There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater. I want to be able to have it all. Selfishly.”

Johansson announced her engagement to French journalist Romain Dauriac last year, and news of her pregnancy just recently surfaced.
