Readers take note: if you ever happen to run into Scarlett Johansson, do not call her ScarJo, particularly if you're itching for an autograph.

The 29-year-old beauty stuns on the May cover of Glamour magazine in which the expectant actress opens up about her hatred for her Hollywood nickname, revealing that she finds the moniker to be "insulting."

"I associate that name with, like, pop star," the Captain America: The Winter Soldier star told the publication.

She added that her famous portmanteau "sounds tacky. It's lazy and flippant...There's something insulting about it." 

Well, at least she's honest.

But her distaste for her nickname wasn't the only grievance the actress felt the need to air. Romain Dauriac's fiancée also shared why it's often frustrating to be seen as a sex symbol in the Hollywood world.

"Actresses get stupid questions asked of them all the time, like, 'How do you stay sexy?' or 'What's your sexiest quality?' All these ridiculous things you would never ask a man,'" she explained.

Safe to say the stunner has a point. And she's worked hard to achieve her A-list status, although it didn't come as easily as many may think.

"When I made Lost in Translation, I was 17. Now I'm 29... That's a normal side effect of being a young actor," she said. "You're captured in a certain time of your life, and it's hard for people to move past that."

The same could be said about the nickname ScarJo. Regardless, we're team Scarlett Johansson.
