Scarlett Johansson has managed to be in the spotlight be it for her successful acting career, her dating life, and for her bold statements. The Marvel star is known for keeping her views straight on whatever she feels about being in the glamorous world.

Celebrity life is never an easy thing as it looks to everyone. They are constantly in the spotlight and followed by paparazzi. There have been incidents of paparazzi following a celebrity vehicle to get a mere shot of them. The idea of people following sounds scary, and celebrities go through it almost every day.

Johansson, known for her bold statement, has revealed she hates paparazzi after a scary incident occurred with her. In 2019, the Lost in Translation star had a scary run-in with the paps after exiting a Jimmy Kimmel Live taping. The 38-year-old revealed she became frightened because she thought the paparazzi were tailing her car dangerously.

In an interview with USA Today, the Asteroid City actress revealed,

“Five cars full of men with blacked-out windows who were running red lights and putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk so they could follow me to find out where I was staying and subsequently stalk me and my young daughter for the duration of my stay. … All of this is perfectly legal.”

Johansson later cited the example of Princess Diana’s death as the worst-case scenario example of the lawless and criminal actions paparazzi engage in to obtain images and information about celebrities.

The Black Widow star told USA Today,

“Until paparazzi are considered by the law for the criminal stalkers they are, it’s just a waiting game before another person gets seriously injured or killed, like Princess Diana.”

It might seem like being a celebrity is all fun and games, until the paparazzi comes into the picture, and Scarlett Johansson is frightened that the cashing of paps might again lead to some celebrity’s death.

Over the years, Scarlett Johansson has graced the silver screens with performances ranging from independent films to action-packed blockbusters. Her talent hasn’t gone unnoticed. She has received recognition from the British Academy Film in addition to the Tony Award, demonstrating her appeal on a global scale.

The Lucy actor started acting at the age of nine. She made her debut with the film North in 1994. However, her future in the industry was not a smooth walk. She faced many challenges, and one of them was being typecast by the industry at the age of 18. 

Johansson struggled to break out of the stereotype of the seductive seductress after her high-profile roles in Girl With the Pearl Earring and Lost in Translation. She managed to break it by taking the role of Black Widow in the MCU. 

The character Black Widow became one of the pillars of the MCU. It helped the 38-year-old rise to prominence in the industry. Her collaborations in critically acclaimed films like Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit further solidified her standing in Hollywood.
