Scarlett Johansson has become a celebrated figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe through her dynamic portrayal of Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow. She played this iconic role alongside other superheroes including Iron Man played by Robert Downey Jr., Captain America played by Chris Evans, Thor played by Chris Hemsworth, Hawkeye played by Jeremy Renner, and the Hulk played by Mark Ruffalo.
Scarlett Johansson is famously known for not holding back when she feels disrespected. However, the Black Widow actress has also acknowledged experiencing hypersexualization in Hollywood. In an interview back in 2012, she was asked inappropriate questions which led her to shut down the interviewer. Scarlett Johansson has been through several awkward situations in many interviews, but one unexpected incident occurred while promoting The Avengers. During an interview, reporter Jerry Penacoli asked if she was wearing underwear underneath her costume. Johansson was not pleased and responded by saying, “You’re the fifth person to ask me this today. I’ll leave it to your imagination. Whatever you think I should be wearing or not wearing underneath that suit.”
During an interview, a reporter made a tasteless remark about Scarlett Johansson’s costume in a movie. When the reporter tried to explain their comment, Johansson interrupted and sarcastically stated that it was up to the reporter’s imagination to decide what she should wear under the costume. The actress found the question demeaning and uncomfortable. Later, she was asked to discuss her character’s costume change.
During a recent promotion for another Avengers movie, the actress was asked to discuss how her character’s costume changed throughout the film. She seemed unsure how to answer the question and joked about whether she really got to talk about fashion. She mentioned that she wore a leather jumpsuit for most of the movie, which she had been wearing for the past decade. However, she added that she had a new vest and hairstyle, which may divide people’s opinions. In a separate interview on actor Daz Shepord’s podcast, the actress complained about feeling like an object and being typecast in a way that limited her opportunities for work.
Scarlett Johansson played the character of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite this, she ended on a positive note by acknowledging the changes occurring in Hollywood. She emphasized the importance of understanding meaningful progress and change.
