[tps_footer]Scarlett Johansson is certainly one of Hollywood’s more beautiful women. However, apart from her scintillating red carpet appearances, jaw-dropping performances and adorable personality; she is also a very smart and insightful woman who is in touch with what’s really going on in the world. She definitely packs a punch in her movies, but even more so with her opinions.
According to her, the manner in which celebrities are ‘victimised’ by social media these days is inherently disturbing. Scarlett who first started her stint in movies with the minor role in ‘Home Alone’ went on to say that the way the media works has completely changed in the last few years and now A-Listers and celebrities have become a common target for the internet. This kind of strong scrutiny was never a part of the celebrity culture when she was growing up and was a teenager and she still cannot seem to wrap her head around it.
“I remember watching Macaulay Culkin dealing with (the media), but it was because he had that Shirley Temple effect (and) he was making so much money. That was a very unusual situation. “I was in the generation of Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman, a little bit younger, but none of us were dealing with that, the way young stars are (today). Watching it snowball into what it has become today, it’s so disturbing,” she said in an interview.
She also went on to add that she makes extra efforts to keep her private life with her husband and child under wraps as much as possible. Well, we’d always love to see more of Johansson but she sure has a point![/tps_footer]
