Scarlett Johansson claims she finds it hard to make friends - because of the "catty" industry she works in.
The stunning actress says moving from New York to Los Angeles, which she did to further her career, was a huge shock because of how unfriendly some people can be.
She is reported to have said: "It's hard to make real friends in LA. There's so much emphasis on career, on who people can meet to better themselves and I'm not used to that. Growing up in New York, if you go to a party where you don't know many people, you end up meeting everybody.
"In LA, nobody wants to talk to each other, everybody's giving each other catty looks."
The 20-year-old beauty also says she has struggled to cope with life in Los Angeles as it can be a very "lonely" place.
She added: "LA is an incredibly lonely place and you have to deal with not having the sense of community or culture you have in New York where I grew up."
