Los angles: Scarlett Johansson says being a working parent is incredibly challenging beacuse at times it gets difficult to balance work and family.
The 32-year-old star opened up about the difficulties of being a working mother while attending the amfAR New York Gala, reported Entertainment Tonight.
The event marks Johansson’s first solo red carpet since announcing her split from her husband Romain Dauriac, on January 25.
Johansson and Dauriac tied the knot in October 2014 and continue to amicably coparent their 2-year-old daughter, Rose.
“I don’t profess to know anything about parenting, anything more than anybody else, (but) being a working mom is an incredible challenge, (and) it’s an incredible gift.
“I think you always feel a little bit of guilt… If you’re at work, you feel like you’re missing out on those special moments with your kid. If you’re with your kid, you feel like you’re not giving enough to your job. It’s a balance. I have a lot of huge admiration for working moms. I’m barely, barely holding it together,” the actress said.
