Oh, come now, Scarlett, you're being more than a little bashful...

In an interview with Barbara Walters (more on that in a minute) the new mum had this to say of sex scenes (she doesn't mind them), her thighs and her face. I'm sure she also discussed more pressing matters, but the press haven't picked up on them.

The Lucy actress thinks love-making on screen is 'challenging' because it requires so much focus and energy and she likes how she has to shed her inhibitions for raunchy roles. She said: "You have to be totally without judgement, and it's sort of liberating. It's challenging. You have to stay in the moment."

Despite her stunning looks and enviable physique, Scarlett - who has two-month-old daughter Rose with new husband Romain Dauriac - insists her body is "unremarkable" and she doesn't consider herself sexy.

Speaking on Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014, she said: "It's an OK body. I wouldn't say it's particularly remarkable though. I don't like my thighs, my mid section... I never put on a sexy face, so I don't know what it means to act seductively."

The 'Lost in Translation' star - who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds - also discussed her personal life, admitting she finds also finds relationships "challenging,"

She said: "I think being in a committed relationship takes work. It's very easy to leave a situation when it gets uncomfortable. It's challenging. But when it works it's really worth it."

Scarlett was one of the lucky names plucked by Barbara Walters to be among her 'Most Fascinating of 2014'. Also gracing the list included Taylor Swift, Oprah Winfrey and Chelsea Handler. But who was named THE most fascinating? Amal Clooney - the one person Barbara didn't have an interview with, therefore making her all the more fascinating.

In short, Barbawah described Amal's bagging of George Clooney as "one of the greatest achievements in human history." She wasn't even taking the piss.
