Scarlett Johansson spoke about her past controversies and what she learned from them.
The actress discussed the many moments in her career in which she faced public backlash, admitting that she hasn’t always handled the situations in a way she’s currently proud of.
Johansson sat down for an interview with the U.K. outlet The Gentlewoman in which she was asked directly about the many mishaps in her career thus far.
“Yeah,” she joked, “I’ve made a career out of it”.
“I’m going to have opinions about things, because that’s just who I am,” she told the outlet.
Scarlett’s first public scandal occurred after she was cast as the main character in the big-screen adaptation of the popular manga Ghost in the Shell in 2017. At that time, many thought that Johansson agreeing to take the role took the character, which was originally an Asian character, and whitewashed it.
In 2019, she received further backlash for agreeing to play the part of a transgender man in the film Rub & Tug.
