In the summer blockbuster hit "Lucy," she plays a psychokinetic superhuman who transcends basic human limitations. But in real life, Scarlett Johansson's no match for the heat of a New York summer, as evidenced by her sporty new haircut

The actress, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Romain Duriac this August, was recently spotted in New York with a supershort new 'do.

Despite the success of "Lucy," which raked in $44 million at the box office this weekend, the actress has kept a relatively low profile in recent months, and has only briefly discussed her upcoming role as a mother. But in an interview last May with the Wall Street Journal, she conceded the "struggle" working mothers often face.  

"I know that with that there will be some sacrifices," she told the Wall Street Journal. "I know that's the struggle with working mothers and successful careers. It happens. With [male actors] it just doesn't happen that way. You can be every woman's fantasy, and nobody thinks twice about the fact that you have eight kids or whatever."

Still, she said, that's not going to stop her from going after her goals.

"There must exist a world in which I can balance those things, be able to raise a family and still make a film a year, or work on my own, develop things, do theater," she said. "I want to be able to have it all."
