Scarlett Johansson claims she was “objectified” and forced into “hypersexualized” career

The Black Widow star Scarlett Johansson claims that as a young actress, she was “objectified” and forced into a “hypersexualized” career.

The actor made the remarks during an interview on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast on October 10. She remembered how, at age 17, she had been chosen to play a character in Lost in Translation who was five years older.

She stated, “I believe everyone assumed I was older, and I kind of got pigeonholed into this odd, hypersexualized thing”

Johansson said, “I kind of became objectified and pigeonholed in this way where I felt like I wasn’t getting offers for work for things that I wanted to do. I remember thinking to myself, I was like, ‘I think people think I’m, like, 40 years old.’ It somehow stopped being something that was desirable and something that I was fighting against.”

Shepard was informed of her optimism, which she expressed in reference to Zendaya and Florence Pugh’s successful careers.

“I’ve come to this realization that it’s important to understand progress and change when it’s really meaningful,” she said. “It takes two steps forward and two steps back, and then it gets better and then it gets worse. It’s not finite. I think if you don’t leave room for people to figure it out, then the actual progressive change doesn’t really happen.”
