Scarlett Johansson has been in the film industry for more than two decades and reportedly commands equivalent pay with male co-stars. She is also a mother and when not doing everything else, she's singing about the aftermath of a failed relationship in her latest collaboration with singer-songwriter Pete Yorn. Their EP, "Apart," came out on Friday.

"It's a long process and you have to keep your eye on the prize, and you have to be patient and progressive and persistent and you keep moving forward," she tells AFP during a recent interview with Yorn to promote "Apart."

The EP has five indie tracks focused on the aftermath of a failed relationship "where all the juicy stuff is," in the words of Yorn. It comes out on Capitol Records a decade after their first album, "Break Up," in 2009.

The EP was recorded in downtown Los Angeles, with Johansson laying down her vocals in one afternoon, squeezed around her crazy schedule.

Johansson has, so far at least, not joined the list of actors to distance themselves from Allen over accusations, unproven, that he molested his adopted daughter Dylan when she was seven, a quarter of a century ago.

But if that fanned a degree of criticism, she has publicly supported Georgina Chapman, the estranged wife of Weinstein whose husband's transgressions, some had assumed, might spell the end of her Marchesa fashion label.

"To me, it seems inhumane to hold someone accountable for their partner's actions," explains Johansson. "It feels extremely, deeply wrong."

To that end, she stepped out last month in a crimson Marchesa gown at the Met Gala, the New York's party of the year. "I just really wanted something that was beautiful and my idea of heavenly and romantic."
