Scarlett Johansson - Scarlett Johansson fears for acting career

Scarlett Johansson worries no one will want to hire her as an actress.

The blonde bombshell is insecure about her acting abilities and has been living in fear that her career might come to an end since wrapping her upcoming film 'Hitchcock'.

Scarlett said: ''I feel fortunate enough to be able to fool everyone into thinking that I'm capable. But it's true, you know what I mean? I think every actor, when you finish a job you're like, 'Oh man, that'll probably be the last time I ever work again...

''It's a volatile industry. One that's been very kind to me. But I think always in the back of your head you're preparing for, you know, absolute demise, the inevitable decline of your career. That's just an actor's neurosis, I think!''

The 'Avengers Assemble' actress credits her breakthrough role in 'The Horse Whisperer' alongside Robert Redford in 1997 for her current success and thinks her unsafe film choices over the years have allowed her to be taken seriously as an actress.

Scarlett added to Total Film magazine: ''['The Horse Whisperer'] It was a huge, transformative experience for me as a young actor. I made a lot of discoveries about the process on that job.

''I avoided a lot of the teen movies that were popular at the time and just waited for stuff to come that felt right and kind of rare.''

The star feels ready to step behind the camera for her directorial debut and says she already has a clear project in the pipeline.

She admitted: ''My goal is to direct. There's a project I've been working on for a while now, based on a Truman Capote novella called 'Summer Crossing'. I'd like to focus on that.''
