Although they have taken a long time, the Marvel studios finally gave the green light to the Black Widow solo film, the character that Scarlett Johansson plays for years for the ‘The Avengers’ franchise. Certainly, Hollywood is showing a different attitude towards its actresses. Johansson wanted to extend himself in an interview for Hollywood Reporter about how the industry's treatment has changed today, as he notices a big difference between the scripts offered to him now and those given him a decade or two ago.

Scarlett acknowledged that he regrets having played so many "hypersexualized" characters in his acting past, although, he says, the fault has not been his alone. He assures that now the environment is different: "I feel that when I was a 20-year-old girl I was pigeonholed in a certain type of paper, very hypersexualized," he explained.


He alludes to the fact that times have changed, so no one before questioned his interpretations, either of a naive girl or of the other woman of the protagonist, because "hypersexualization was naturalized," he says. And that would have hurt her, since for years she was trying to interpret other types of characters, but she did not achieve it so easily. That caused Scarlett Johansson to even plan to leave the world of interpretation until, suddenly, he was offered the opportunity to star in Arthur Miller's Panorama from the Bridge play, and that desire vanished.

“That made me start to see differently the way I worked and all the other options there were for me. The theater does not put those limits on you, ”said the actress who won a Tony Award for that performance. "Of course I was terrified, but also released because the night of the premiere I felt for the first time that I had been given the opportunity to change the narrative of my life," said Scarlett Johansson, who this year premieres two films with which I could win prizes: the drama 'Story of a marriage' and the comedy Jojo Rabbit.
