Scarlett Johansson - Scarlett Johansson Loves A Challenge

Scarlett Johansson likes to get ''down and dirty'' in her work.

The 'We Bought A Zoo' actress - who plays zookeeper Kelly Foster alongside Matt Damon in the new movie - admitted she is ''up for every kind of challenge'' and likes to get stuck in when she takes on a new role.

She said: ''I think I'm up for every kind of challenge and I like to get down and dirty, yes. I really liked that aspect of Kelly, that she is a no-frills kind of girl, very grounded and practical, with that salt of the earth quality.

''That's the body language I created for her too; she's comfortable in her body and in her stance.''

However, the 27-year-old beauty - who divorced actor Ryan Reynolds in December 2010 after two years of marriage - explained she has developed a ''hard shell'' in order to cope with the constant ''batterings'' she has suffered in the film industry.

Scarlett added: ''I learned at a really young age that you have to have something of a hard shell to take some of the batterings that you get in this industry.

''We're constantly rejected and scrutinised and it's important to take a lot of it with a pinch of sale in order to be able to survive and press on.''
