Actress Scarlett Johansson, who is seen in porn addiction comedy Don Jon, has admitted she is a fan of artistic adult films that don't degrade women.

"Pornography can be degrading or can be sexually liberating, if you know how to use it and it is made from an artistic point of view," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 28-year-old as saying.

"But 'Don Jon' is not a film about pornography, it is a social criticism against consumerism," she added.

She retains her modesty in the comedy as the seductive girlfriend Barbara, a character she could identify with.

"I loved the sweetness of Barbara. Like her, I grew up with young people like them, well educated, perfect. They are a very determined group of New Jerseyites. In fact, I refer to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, actor and director of the film, helping to shape the character," Johansson said.
