Scarlett Johansson: "I have a lot of huge admiration for working moms"

Scarlett Johansson maybe one of the highest grossing actresses of all time but, she is also a mother who loves spending time with her two-year-old daughter. The Ghost in the Shell star, who has a two-year-old daughter Rose with husband Romain Dauric, says being a mother is an "incredible challenge and an incredible gift" and she often feels guilty about working since she cannot be by her growing two-year-old.

She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I don't profess to know anything about parenting, anything more than anybody else, [but> being a working mom is an incredible challenge, [and] it's an amazing gift.

"I think you always feel a little bit of guilt... If you're at work, you feel like you're missing out on those special moments with your kid. If you're with your kid, you feel like you're not giving enough to your job. It's a balance.

"I have a lot of huge admiration for working moms. I'm barely, barely holding it together."

Scarlett Johansson's marriage is rumored to be on the rocks, and she brought her mother Melanie Sloan as her date to the amfAR New York Gala on Wednesday. She said: "I really couldn't think of anybody else that I'd rather [have] with me here tonight. "[She's] been incredibly inspiring for me in many, many ways, but certainly as a young girl. "She never shielded us from what was going on in the zeitgeist in culture. She always made us aware, you know, socially aware. She always encouraged us to be politically and socially active, so I couldn't imagine a better date tonight."
