Scarlett Johansson quickly became a Twitter meme after her recent interview defending her often controversial acting roles.
Throughout her prolific career, Johansson has come under fire multiple times for taking roles written for minority actors. In the movie "Ghost in the Shell" she played Major Motoko Kusanagi, an Asian woman. Soon after, Johansson was also cast as a trans man in Rub & Tug, but she ultimately declined the role after major backlash.
Now, in a recent interview with AS IF, Johansson addressed the critiques she's received for these roles, and where she stands on the conversation around whitewashing and straight-washing.
