Scarlett Johansson: “I have to be free to choose the role and play any person, animal or tree”

The actress said that “the art should be free” of the restrictions imposed by the “trend” on political correctness – and caused a flurry of criticism.

Scarlett Johansson spoke about the impact of public opinion on film making and casting in an interview with As If magazine According to the actress, political correctness has rightly become a trend in cinema, but sometimes this leads to limitations that should not exist in art.

Being an actress, I have to be free to choose a role — and play any person, tree or animal, because that is my job.

It seems to me that political correctness has become a trend in cinema, and this should have happened due to various social factors. However, when [political correctness] begins to influence the artistic intent, then it becomes inappropriate – because art, in my opinion, should be free from limitations.Scarlett Johanssonactress

Scarlett Johansson also stressed that “society will become more cohesive and united if it does not tell people how to feel.”

The words of the actress caused a squall of criticism on social networks – users reproached Scarlett Johansson for selfishness and hypocrisy, since in 2018 she abandoned the role of transgender in the film Rub and Tug after a negative reaction from the LGBT community.

Then the actress explained her rejection of the role by saying that her appointment “was insensitive” towards transgender people.

Scarlett Johansson has not learned anything. I absolutely will NOT watch “The Black Widow” and other films with her participation.

Let me remind you that Scarlett Johansson – the highest paid actress in 2018, who earned 40.5 million dollars. And while she wants to take away the role of Asian actors, transgender and other minority representatives?
