Scarlett Johansson (37) revealed the problems she faced at the beginning of her film career and explained why she felt “hypersexualized” and “categorized”
Scarlett was a guest on Dax Shepard’s show where she explained that at the beginning of her career, she was considered older than she was, so she didn’t get the roles she wanted.
– Somehow I became objectified and closed in this way, I felt like I wasn’t getting offers for the jobs I wanted to do. I remember thinking that people probably think that I am 40 years old – said Johansson.
– Because everyone thought I was older and I had been acting for longer, I somehow slipped into that strange hypersexualized area – she said and added that the situation is still more favorable for young actresses today.
– Now I see younger actors in their twenties and it seems to me that they are allowed to try different things. A new time has come. Fortunately, we’re not allowed to deal with the other actors anymore, are we? People are much more dynamic – she said.
Johansson rose to fame at the age of 17 with her role as Charlotte in Sofia Coppola’s 2003 film Lost in Translation, and began acting as a child.
