Scarlett Johansson says cooking helps keep her normal.
The stunning actress likes to unwind after a tough day by creating something in the kitchen as it gives her the routine she craves.
She said: After a long day at work, I really like to cook.
I actually find cooking dinner a really nice routine, especially after working, it makes me feel normal again.
There is something nice about the routine.
Often when youre working, youre travelling around a lot and you feel kind of disconnected - so I find having a routine like coming home and cooking dinner every day sort of makes me feel more at home.
The 24-year-old beauty also revealed she doesnt feel entirely comfortable with being regarded as a role model.
She added to Britains OK magazine: I always thought you reached icon status after you left this world.
I never signed up to be a role model as such.
Of course, ever since I was a little girl I had an idea of what I wanted to do - which was to pursue my dream of being a successful actor.
If that makes me a role model for people to look up to, then I suppose I am flattered by it.
