I'm slightly controlling: Scarlett Johansson

Los Angeles, Nov 1 (IANS) Actress Scarlett Johansson, who recently got engaged to French journalist Romain Dauriac, admits she can be controlling in relationships.

The 28-year-old actress confessed that one thing she doesn't like about herself is her impatience, reports contactmusic.com.

"I think we're all guilty of wanting to put our partner in a little box that we have for them, and thinking they should become more like us," the actress told Look magazine.

"That would make everything so much easier! You know, for them to do everything you want to do...Something I don't like about myself is my impatience. And I'm also slightly controlling," Johansson added.

The actress, who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds, admits learning important lessons from her last marriage.

"As you grow up, you realise you can learn through the other persona and compromise with him. We all hold our partner or our imaginary partner up to these standards, which are sort of impossible to fulfill," she said.

"It would be much easier if the people we fell in love with behaved the way we wanted them to. But I've learned over time that that's what makes life interesting..."

"I think you have to be confident deep within yourself to have a successful marriage," Johansson added.
