Washington D.C. [USA], Oct. 16 (ANI): Sharing about her past experiences, Scarlett Johansson recently advised the young girls to take risks in life.

The 31-year-old actress was at ' Power of Women Luncheon' by Variety at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles, according to People magazine.

"I think I would say take risks," she said when asked about her advice for girls today.

The 'Captain America: Civil War' star was talking about the " pressure on women to be a specific way" in various spaces.

"Take risks and don't be afraid to fail because the upside of that is just so rewarding . I've really built a career on taking risks and sometimes it doesn't pan out but like I said, the upside has been hugely rewarding," she said.

Johansson is featured in Variety's latest 'Power of Women' issue for her charitable efforts with Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organization that provides reproductive health services in the United States and globally as well.

The 'Lucy' star is all set to lead the star-studded cast of the upcoming comedy film 'Rock That Body' directed by Lucia Aniello. (ANI)
