Scarlett Johansson openness About some of her early roles.
During a conversation on the “Table for Two” podcast on Tuesday, Johansson I described how I felt While filming her 2003 films Lost in Translation and Girl with a Pearl Earring when she was still a teenager.
“It was kind of my transition into my career as an adult,” Johansson said, adding that she “had a really hard time doing Lost in Translation.”
She explained: “I kind of became like a creator, sort of, and I think that’s part of — little girls like that are really objectified, and that’s just a fact. I did ‘Lost in Translation’ and ‘The Girl with a Pearl Earring’ and by that point, it was I’m 18 and 19 years old, and I had become my womanhood and learned my desires and sexuality.”
She adds that for a while she felt “stuck” in one place in her career.
“I think it was because of this path that I was kind of off, I really got stuck,” she said. “I was kind of predisposed, in a way, to be this what you call a bombshell type actor.”
Johansson said her agent Brian Lord helped her turn things around.
“It would be easy to sit in front of someone in that situation and go, ‘This works, why would you change it?'” the actress said of her career change with Lorde. “But for that kind of bomb, you know, that ignites bright and fast and then it’s done and you don’t have a chance after that.”
