Scarlett Johansson: "Acting is pointless"

Scarlett Johansson pic"As actors, we make movies, we don't save lives," rising star Scarlett Johansson said in a recent interview. "What I do, it's actually not that important. I'm not proud of my films. That was never a criteria."

Speaking on the record with The Financial Times Deutschland, Ananova.com is reporting that the 20-year-old says she is not proud of her films and thinks acting is a relatively pointless profession.

Her criteria is, she points out, to only make the types of films that she herself would pay to see. "I definitely want to be in a Tim Burton film. That's right at the top of my list."

Scarlett also revealed she has the directing bug. "I would even make an ad if I had to, if it meant I could direct at least once. As long as it wasn't for tampons or something embarrassing."
, She also spoke with Dark Horizons in a recent interview about her new film "The Island," and also repeated her belief that movies should be entertaining, and not preachy:

"I don't believe that movies should deliver messages. I never pick films based on whatever messages they're delivering. I think that when you leave the theater I think that you question, 'How far would I go to test fate?'"

"But after all, when I come out of a film that I've just paid $10 to see and spent $15 bucks on popcorn, when I come out of the theater at the end of it I just want to be entertained. I just want to leave and say, 'That was cool. I had a great time. That was a fun experience for me.'"

"I don't really feel that films necessarily always have to deliver the big picture. That can be so preachy and boring particularly if you find it to be offensively preachy. So I just hope that people have a great time when they watch it. It's a trip."
