Scarlett Johansson always puts her "artistic integrity" first and follows her "instincts".

The 29-year-old actress insists she doesn't worry about what audiences or movie executives think of her career choices as she always puts her "artistic integrity" first.

In an extract from her interview with Dazed magazine obtained by, she said: "You have to have your own artistic integrity, and then you don't cave in to pressure. I don't know what the audience or the studio are going to like. I just follow my instincts."

The 'Avengers' actress - who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds and is now engaged to Romain Dauriac - also spoke of how she has come to terms with her figure being "objectified".

She said: "How could I wake up every day and be a normal person if I was completely aware that my image was being manipulated on a global platform. How could I sleep? You have to have peace of mind. You've got to be able to protect those things. How else could you exist? You'd go crazy, anybody would go crazy..."
