Scarlett Johansson may be most famous for playing kick ass characters like Black Widow in The Avengers, but the actress has aspirations of someday taking on the role of a very different kind of woman—a Disney princess.

The star recently opened up about what kind of experiences she hopes to create onscreen for her and husband Romain Dauriac's 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac, and the famous animated ladies were at the top of her list. In fact, she's wanted the part for quite some time.

"My daughter is still young. Right now I think we both share the dream that I will someday be a Disney princess, but it’s probably not going to happen," the 32-year-old mom told The New York Times. "I’ve been asking for that job for the past 20 years, and nobody has booked me."

Johansson also spoke about her penchant for taking on challenging characters. "I’ve always had the same principle for choosing roles, which is to try and make movies that I would pay to see," she said. "I look for projects with filmmakers who want to make things that give the audience a fresh experience. I’ve always been very competitive, and a part of that is pushing your boundaries—taking a risk, and being able to live with the loss that comes with taking a risk."

Let's make this Disney princess thing happen, Hollywood.
