Scarlett Johansson Sadly Feels She Was Pigeonholed in Bombshell Roles Because of Her Curvy Figure: “I never think about my character being sexy”

Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has showcased her acting talent in many films over the years. From critically acclaimed performances in Match Point to her swashbuckling stint in Marvel, the star has proved that she has what it takes to be in the big leagues.

But the Black Widow star hasn’t always felt that her physical presence deserved more importance than her talent. Johansson has openly spoken about wanting to be known as a character actor rather than a bombshell which sometimes has eluded her owing to being typecast due to her body structure.

Scarlett Johansson Did Not Want To Be A S*x Symbol

Scarlett Johansson’s beauty and arresting physical persona are the envy of many. The actor who is blessed with a perfect face and body, has had men swooning over her and women desperate to look like her. The star though, did not feel that her looks and physique were an advantage. Johansson spoke of the problems of being stereotyped for being a conventional beauty with a curvy body and the roles she got because of it.
“I wanted to be a character actor. Those are the actors I mostly admire. I think women that are curvy can be pigeonholed in that bombshell thing. It’s not like I actively look for sexy roles. It’s not a requirement that my character be pretty and delicate.”

The Vicky Christina Barcelona star went on to confess that she wasn’t against doing a s*xy role if it was organically written into the script and the character but had an issue if her looks dictated the kind of roles she was offered.

Scarlett Johansson Talked About The Problem Of Fame

Being a celebrity comes with its perks and challenges. With the fandom and adulation on one side, the lack of privacy on the other side poses a problem for stars. Scarlett Johansson who is well aware of both extremes, confessed that being a recognizable face comes with its share of problems. Speaking of people’s unempathetic behavior, Johansson said,
“ I’m constantly surprised by how rude people are. You’ll be having an intimate dinner with a friend and there’s somebody on the table behind with a cameraphone pointing at your face. I think, “I would never take a photo of someone without asking.”
