Scarlett Johansson Says Hollywood Actresses Are Still ‘Underpaid’

Serving as the star and the executive producer of Marvel’s upcoming Black Widow, actress Scarlett Johansson revealed in an interview that she is still fighting against a supposed pay-gap problem in Hollywood. Hollywood actresses apparently routinely get paid less than their male co-stars, which many attribute to sexism.

In a sit down with Glamour to promote her new film releasing this weekend, Johansson spoke on behalf of women in the business, and how her time as a child actor showed her how much she was being underpaid for her services.

“As a woman, you have to be [your own ally] all the time,” said Johansson. “Because we are underminded and underserved and under-appreciated and underpaid – you have to be your own ally.”

After collecting $56 million in 2019 alone, the Marvel actress has amassed a total net worth of $159 million. Scarlett is set to make an additional $25 million with the release of her new comic book movie.

Unaware of her own privilege, Johansson uses her platform — similar to MCU actors, such as Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo and others — to further a narrative within Hollywood regarding discrimination against women and other minority groups.

By appeasing the woke mob, the actress hopes to make up for her own checkered history with the woke mob, a mob whose sentiments she often claims to support. Johansson has been the butt of jokes around Hollywood, PC Twitter and the media for “whitewashing” characters and for accepting roles that could otherwise go to talented, small-time thespians.

After being cast as the lead character in Ghost in the Shell, a remake based on an original Japanese anime, Johansson was called out for whitewashing the role originally written for a Japanese protagonist.

She was also cast to play a transgender male, but Johansson eventually withdrew from the project after receiving backlash for approaching the project as a cisgender woman.

Defending her job and acknowledging the responsibilities of becoming a chameleon on screen, ScarJo enraged critics with her response: “You know, as an actor, I should be allowed to play any person, or any tree or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job.”

  1. Here is an idea – stop casting all these people and use lesser known actors OR just go full CGI. That day is coming at some point anyway, so just like the checker at Wal-Mart has almost completely been replaced by self-checkout machines so too will these Hollywood actors.

  2. She is a beautiful woman with a great body but what a vapid, woke asshole. Hollywood hasn’t made a decent movie in a long time. I know I’m dating myself but the days of cool actors like Steve McQueen, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Gene Hackman, Robert Duvall, and their ilk is way gone. Pussys like Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo is what’s left. Sad.

  3. A third rate actress, who also happens to be the highest paid woman, is whining about being underpaid.

    Maybe Creepy Joe can send poor Scarlet a stimmy. I wouldn’t want her to go all Letrell Sprewell and claim she can’t feed her family while making millions of dollars.

    Hollywood can move to Communist China along with the NBA.

  4. They get paid exactly what they are worth and willing to accept. Just like anyone who signs a contract. If you’re getting less than what you think you are worth, renegotiate at the next opportunity, or get a better agent. It’s really not complicated.

  5. Since when does being insanely rich, famous, with every luxury in life anyone could dream of produce such stupid ingratitude? The immense absence of self awareness of these elites is pathetic and offensive. Call the freakin whambulance. Says a lot about what’s wrong here: Lack of humility and gratitude.
