    It's kind of chic for celebrities to try and act like they're too cool to have ever Googled themselves.

    But Scarlett Johansson admits she's done it, and as she tells the November 2013 issue of Elle Canada, she quit searching for her name online because it doesn't always end well!

    "I've stopped Googling myself—nothing good ever comes of it," the Don Jon star tells the mag. "It gives you an inflated sense of yourself, too. It makes you feel like everyone is paying attention to you and they're not."

    The 28-year-old actress and bride-to-be also explains why she likes to keep the details of her personal life under wraps. "You don't know me. I don't particularly care about the romantic life of a person I don't know," she says. "I guess we're all nosy in some way…I know that people like celebrities and maybe it gives them something to dream about."

    As for what's next career-wise for Ms. Johansson? It won't be always be a repeat of what's worked in the past. "It would be such a waste to just continue to do the same thing and not take a risk," she says. "I don't have anything to lose by taking a risk artistically—I only have something to gain, even if it doesn't work out."
