Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson paced forward talking about her fresh casting disputes in a discussion where she revolving on the present socially mindful ‘trend’ filling through Hollywood and asked whether radical perfection should notify casting results.
The ‘Black Widow’ star told artist David Salle in an interview for As If magazine, “You know, as an actor I should be allowed to play any person, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job”.
Johansson further added, “I feel like it’s a trend in my business and it needs to happen for many social reasons, yet there are times it does get uncomfortable when it affects the art because I feel art should be free of boundaries.”
The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ star disclosed her concern about the culture, she said, “I think society would be more connected if we just allowed others to have their own feelings and not expect everyone to feel the way we do.”
The actor has been entangled in a number of casting debates, being cast to play both a traditionally Japanese character and a trans man in recent years.
For the unversed, in 2018, Scarlett had to remove from playing a transgender in the mob drama ‘Rub & Tub’ after widespread criticism. She was rejected from playing real-life transmasculine man, Dante “Tex” Gill.
