Scarlett Johansson Jokes She Has ‘Made a Career Out of’ Past Controversies: I Was ‘Off Mark’

"Everyone has a hard time admitting when they're wrong about stuff, and for all of that to come out publicly, it can be embarrassing," Scarlett Johansson told The Gentlewoman

Scarlett Johansson is reflecting on her past controversies, remembering the “embarrassing” feeling she had when the gaffes “[came] out publicly.”

In a new conversation with U.K. magazine The Gentlewoman, the 36-year-old actress joked that she has “made a career out of” her missteps.

 

 

And while she’s “going to have opinions about things, because that’s just who I am,” the two-time Oscar nominee also said, “I mean, everyone has a hard time admitting when they’re wrong about stuff, and for all of that to come out publicly, it can be embarrassing.”

 

 

Johansson has previously been under fire for her role in Ghost in the Shell (which many felt should’ve gone to an Asian actress), her comments about being “allowed to play any person” amid backlash for her casting as a transgender character, and her defense of Woody Allen, with whom she has collaborated multiple times.

 

 

“To have the experience of, ‘Wow, I was really off mark there,’ or, ‘I wasn’t looking at the big picture,’ or, ‘I was inconsiderate,’ ” Johansson told the magazine. “I’m also a person.”
