Scarlett Johansson works out like a guy.

The 'Match Point' actress says she heads straight to the weights room when she hits the gym and much prefers to sculpt her body than do cardio exercises.

She told French ELLE: "I go to the gym twice a week, but if I'm preparing for a role, I sometimes go every day. I'm not a fan of cardio, I like lifting weights and doing exercises to work my core muscles. To be honest, I work out like a guy!"

However, the sultry star is far more feminine when it comes to her beauty routine and wouldn't dream of heading out for the night without a full face of make-up.

Scarlett said: "I've always loved eye-shadow. When I was younger, my mother would always get dolled up before she went out, I've inherited the same habit.

"In the evening, I wear bright red lipstick and accentuate my eyes. I like to have an expressive gaze, with lots of layers of mascara."

The 28-year-old beauty also shared her best DIY remedy for great skin - using lemon juice as a natural toner.

She revealed: "I use lemon juice diluted with water instead of toner to make my skin glow and reduce marks. It's perfect for the days before a red carpet appearance."
