Scarlett Johansson remains without power.

The “Her” and “Black Widow” actress revealed that her “ego is too fragile” to use social media.

“I can not. My ego is too fragile. I can’t do anything about it,” Johansson said.Skinny Confidential is He and She” podcast. “My brain is too fragile. I am like a delicate flower.”

Johansson tried using Instagram for three days before swearing off the app.

“I was looking at someone’s Instagram page for 20 minutes who worked for a friend of mine,” he said. “Now I know you have a pit bull and two daughters and you live in Burbank. I was like, what? I only wasted 17 minutes. Now I feel like I should move to California and get this dog and change my life in all these ways.”

Johansson continued: “I felt it like this bad, like I was left out of this random person’s life. I was like, I can’t do that.”

However, the actress and her team use social media for her skin care company, The Outset.

“We’re both really bad at it, but it’s fun,” Johansson said. “I love reading customer reviews and presenting them to people on TikTok.”

He noted that he also scrolls through the For You page, adding: “I mean, it’s definitely fun. Every time I see her in the office, I’m like three years old with their mom’s phone and I’m completely immersed.”

The “Lost in Translation” star previously revealed that her breakout role felt like she was “groomed” to be a “bombshell-type” actor, a font from “Girl With the Pearl Earring.”

“I did ‘Lost in Translation’ and ‘Girl With the Pearl Earring,’ and at that point I was 18, 19 and coming into my own womanhood and learning how desirable I was and my sexuality,” Johansson said in December 2022. “I was definitely groomed to be what you call a bombshell type of actor. I was playing the other woman and the object of desire and I was suddenly cornered in this place. I couldn’t get out of it.”

He continued: “It would be easy to sit across from someone in that situation and say, ‘This is working.’ But this kind of bombshell, you know she burns bright and fast and then she’s done and you have no options beyond that. It was an interesting, weird puzzle to be in, but it really came back to working on it and trying to get a place in different projects and working in great bands.”
