On yesterday's CBS SUNDAY MORNING, Hollywood superstar and current star of Broadway's 'Cat On A Hat Tin Roof,' Scarlett Johansson revealed that she despices the nickname "ScarJo" which she's acquired in the media as her popularity has risen.
"That's terrible," she tells reporter Anthony Mason, laughing. "Hopefully it's going to go away some time...Like, there's so many actors you would never be like - Kate Winslet was, like, KaWi, KaWi, KaWi. I don't know. Like, why me?" I hate that name." Check out the interview in full below!
