Dismissing rumors that she's using Gwyneth Paltrow's personal trainer or on some "miracle diet," Johansson says she's been working out at least 30 minutes a day and eating a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables and lean proteins.

The formerly curvy Lost In Translation star writes on The Huffington Post that, “the idea that the media would maintain that I have lost an impossible amount of weight by some sort of 'crash diet' or miracle workout is ludicrous.”

Johansson also denies that she's lost 14 pounds. "If I were to lose 14 pounds, I'd have to part with both arms. And a foot," the actress writes.

The actress says she's speaking out because she doesn't want "some 15-year-old girl in Kansas City (to) read one of these 'articles' and decide she wasn't going to eat for a couple of weeks so she too could 'crash diet' and look like Scarlett Johansson."
