"And Tony [Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr] even refers to her as something like that at one point. What does he say? 'I want some'."Yeah, and at one point calls her a piece of meat and maybe at that time that actually felt like a compliment. You know what I mean?"

She added that her self-worth was "probably measured against that type of comment" - about her physical appearance - back then, but that she had grown to understand her own self-worth better since becoming a mother.image copyrightimage caption

Johansson said young girls were now "getting a much more positive message""I'm more accepting of myself, I think.

"Now people, young girls, are getting a much more positive message, but it's been incredible to be a part of that shift and be able to come out the other side and be a part of that old story, but also progress," she added."Evolve. I think it's pretty cool."

Why is she critising role that made her millions? Didn't criticise paycheck then is she handing it back now ? Ffs Bore off the. This is like Jesus saying the Bible is 'Hyper' Religious. As she’s almost middle-aged now, and a bit saggy, she’s now demanding only ‘character’ roles. Well, I'm sure she could have turned down the part. Perhaps it was the money though... 🙄

Yet male actors will often be half naked... After being paid. Yawn Then return the money you made from it. The woke will kill the Joy in everything. The character is called black widow clues in the name 🤷‍♀️🕷
