Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson finds it “disturbing” how celebrities are victimised in this day and age.

The 31-year-old actress has been in front of the camera for around two decades and is still going strong today, with several projects including animated movie Sing in the pipeline.

There’s been a great deal of change in the industry since she started out, with A-listers now being targeted on their every move by the press and the public through the Internet – something Johansson is horrified by, reported OK! magazine.

“You know, I didn’t grow up in the glare of social media. That stuff wasn’t an issue when I was a teenager,” she said.

“I remember watching MaCaulay Culkin dealing with (the media), but it was because he had that Shirley Temple effect (and) he was making so much money. That was a very unusual situation.

“I was in the generation of Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman, a little bit younger, but none of us were dealing with that, the way young stars are (today). Watching it snowball into what it has become today, it’s so disturbing.”

The “Lost in Translation” actress said she makes an avid effort to keep her private life under wraps, especially regarding her marriage to Frenchman Romain Dauriac and their daughter Rose, born in 2014.

But even when in her husband’s home country she can’t go unnoticed while out and about.

“People in France are just as crazy about movies as any other place. It’s probably a similar reaction as in New York: People in big cities are involved in their own thing and (not as) totally starstruck as if you were in a more rural place. (But) fans are fans everywhere.”
