Scarlett Johansson: Curvy Women are Super-Sexualized

Scarlett Johansson has said that her "bombshell" persona is a result of the way curvy women are portrayed.
The actress, who stars as Janet Leigh in upcoming biopic Hitchcock, appeared in a photo shoot for Elle UK's February issue and spoke out about how her figure has earned her a reputation.


She said: "I think any woman who is curvy and wears a gown to an event is, like, super-sexualised."
Johansson said despite her age, her shape earned her comments in the media from the outset of her career.
"I mean, at the time I was 18, 19. I was young," she explained. "I've always been curvy. It runs in the family. "Throw on an evening frock and it's like all of a sudden you have boobs and everyone is like, 'Bombshell!'"

She added: "Instantly it was 'The new Marilyn'.

The 28-year-old also spoke of her marriage to Ryan Reynolds, which lasted two years from 2008 to 2010, saying she enjoyed the experience but the concept was not important to her.

She said: "I got married when I was young and it was incredibly romantic and I liked being married, actually. But it is different.

"To me, being in a functioning relationship doesn't mean you have to be married. I never think about marriage.

During her relationship with Reynolds, Johansson's phone was hacked and private photographs were circulated online, something she called a "crazy time".

"I had some problems in my family and publicly, my relationship - all that stuff. It was like, 'Oh man, what next?'

"But life has ebbs and flows, don't you think?" she added.

I'm pretty sure they're trolling.

Yeah idts, they've been actually telling people to 'shut up' etc when people complain about genuinely offensive stuff and in their comments on this same page they are mocking people that call out offensive stuff.

Well yeah, that's what I mean. They wanted some reaction.

ETA: sry I misread your comment. What I meant was they're probably being a jerk to get a reaction. Idk if they really feel that way or not but I don't think they're saying those things for the sake of discussion. I don't think I've ever seen a non-trolly comment from them, they've just been more extreme (aka bored) lately.
