Scarlett Johansson, who began her acting career in the 1994 film North at the young age of 9, has since become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand stars. As a result, it’s no surprise that her fans on social media regularly share photos of the Marvel alum. One of the latest photos to circulate online shows the actress wearing a beautiful gold mini-dress, looking nothing short of stunning. This outtake is from a 2019 advertising campaign for the renowned beauty brand, Lux, where Scarlett Johansson featured in numerous print and digital ads for their Japanese market. Fresh Film’s Dennis Leupold, who photographed the actress during the shoot, later released a series of both behind-the-scenes and candid shots from the campaign.
The media has often portrayed Scarlett Johansson as a sex symbol, however, the actress has expressed discomfort with this label in a recent appearance on the Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi podcast. Johansson revealed that she felt groomed into becoming a “bombshell” actor during the early stages of her career, after landing roles in Lost in Translation, Girl with the Pearl Earring, and Match Point. Unfortunately, these roles resulted in Johansson being typecast as the object of male desire, which made it difficult for her to break out of that mold. Despite feeling cornered, Johansson continued to cultivate her star power within the industry.
Scarlett Johansson has acknowledged that her Sex symbol image has had its benefits, but also its drawbacks. The actress revealed that such roles tend to burn out quickly, leaving little room for further opportunities. Despite not hating the job security her looks have provided, Johansson has worked hard to secure roles in different projects and ensemble movies. Even when cast as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, Johansson felt the character was over-Sexualized and underdeveloped. She worked with Jon Favreau and Kevin Feige to give Natasha Romanoff a more progressive outlook. However, there have been times when Johansson’s constant hyper-Sexualization led her to think her career was coming to an end. On a recent episode of the Armchair Expert podcast, Johansson admitted that there weren’t many offers for the projects she wanted to take on, making her feel undesirable. Nevertheless, her career is still going strong, with her next project being Asteroid City, a romantic comedy-drama directed, written, and produced by Wes Anderson. The movie, set in 1955, follows students and parents who attend a Junior Stargazer convention in a fictional American desert town where world-changing events disrupt the itinerary. The film, featuring Johansson, will be released on June 23.
