Scarlett Johansson sheds pounds for new film role

London, Apr 7 : Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is reportedly shedding her famous curves, as she is following a diet plan for a new role.

The `North' actress has reportedly lost over 14 pounds, after she began working out with Gywneth Paltrow's trainer Tracy Anderson, in a bid to shape up for Iron Man 2.

"The pair have been doing daily workouts with Gwyneth's personal trainer Tracy Anderson," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"Scarlett is also staying away from carbohydrates," the source added.

Scarlett reportedly decided to cut few extra pounds after she felt leaner actresses might bag her roles.

"Scarlett has always been happy with her curves, but recently she has been feeling pressure to lose a few pounds," a pal said.

"She knows that she is up against tough competition from younger, prettier and increasingly skinner actresses," the pal added. (ANI)
