Scarlett Johansson is open about being “groomed” to be a “bombshell” actor from a young age

Scarlett Johansson has spoken openly about being “nursed” into a bombshell actress early on in her career.

In a new interview, the Black widow star spoke about how she was typecast from the start of her career.

“I did Lost in translation and Girl with a Pearl Earring and at that point I was 18, 19 and I was coming into my own femininity and learning my own desirability and sexuality,” she said.

The 38-year-old continued, “I was kind of primed to be what you would call a bombshell actor.”

“I was playing the other woman and the object of desire and suddenly found myself cornered in this place. I couldn’t get out of there,” explained Johansson.

“It was around that time that I met Bryan [Lourd]’ the actor said, referring to her longtime agent for helping her break out of the ‘bombing’ path.

“[Bryan] thrives on assembling great creatives and empowering people to do great work. And he just got it,” Johansson said during a career-focused conversation with Bruce Bozzi, published on his new podcast Monday. Table for two with Bruce Bozzi.

“It was an interesting, weird mystery to be in, but it was really about working on it and trying to find a place in different projects and working in great ensembles,” the actor explained.
