During her appearance on Drew Barrymore’s talk show, actress Scarlett Johansson shared a personal secret that she isn’t comfortable sharing with her children. She admitted to smoking when she was younger and expressed feelings of shame about it.

Johansson, who is a mother to two kids – Rose and Cosmo, aged 7 and 7 months respectively, admitted that she doesn’t take pride in her past habit of smoking. She clarified that she doesn’t want her daughter to perceive it as a “cool” thing to do, as smoking is something she strongly disapproves of.

The thespian has a daughter named Rose whom she shares with her former spouse, businessman Romain Dauriac. Recently, the actress welcomed a baby boy named Cosmo with her current husband, Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost.

Scarlett expressed that as a parent, it is common to restrict your children from certain activities and they typically comply. She hopes that her child never discovers the forbidden activity.
