Scarlett Johansson Isn't A Fan Of Celebrity Parenting Tips

Don't expect Scarlett Johansson to have transformed into some sort of parenting swami since the birth of daughter Rose last fall. 

"I don't profess to know anything more about parenting than anybody else," the self-described "newbie" told the Australian Daily Telegraph in a new interview.  

She's also wary of celebrity parents who act like they've figured everything out. (We're not naming any names.)

"I always really hate it when actors or people in the spotlight make giant grandiose statements about parenthood because it's so, so personal," the 30-year-old actress said.

That said, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star didn't mind sharing her own personal experiences with motherhood — specifically, as it affects her career. 

"I have a greater responsibility now so that will definitely affect my schedule," she told the paper. "Before (Rose), I just made the choices that were affecting me, but now I'm responsible for somebody else. Eventually I will have to work less and it might even make me more discerning.

"We'll see, but I think having any kind of huge life-changing event happen to you, such as having children, and it's such a different life now in the best possible way, is very, very inspiring," she added. "I think it will hopefully enrich my work as well as my understanding of myself. That's the hope anyway, you never know."

There you have it. If you want advice on breastfeeding or what motherhood really means, you'll have to look elsewhere.
