Scarlett Johansson is not tech savvy

Scarlett Johansson is a technological "dimwit".

The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' actress - who has seven-month-old daughter Rose with husband Romain Dauriac - is convinced she has a negative effect on digital items because they never seem to work for her.

Asked how tech savvy she is, she said: "I'm a dimwit. I have no capability with it at all.

"In fact, I think I'm one of those people who have some kind of negative ion thing going on where every single thing they touch frazzles, breaks and has no function."

The 30-year-old star doesn't understand the fascination with social media because she would rather "connect" with the people in her life.

She said: "I'm just not interested [in social media]. I want to connect with people that I know, not people I don't know.

"I go to a restaurant and see families and all the children are checking their smartphones, so they're involved with their friends somewhere out there but totally disconnected from what's happening around them. That just seems weird to me."

While she plays the Black Widow in the 'Avengers' franchise, Scarlett thinks she has some useful superpowers of her own.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "I can learn lines quite quickly, which is useful in my work.

"And I make a mean frittata. So there you go."
