'A challenge to be a working mom'
Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson says being a working parent is both incredibly challenging and yet, a gift. And she feels she's "barely holding it together". "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," Johansson told etonline.com.
"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," she added.
The actor's marriage has been rumoured to be in trouble, and she brought her mother, Melanie Sloan, along as her date to the amfAR Gala. The 32-year-old star couldn't have thought of anyone "better" to take along to the event.
She said: "I really couldn't think of anybody else that I'd rather (have) with me here tonight. (She's) been incredibly inspiring for me in many, many ways." IANS
