Scarlett Johansson responds to sexist questions!
“Is that inappropriate?”
You are a shining example of our culture’s sense of entitlement to women’s bodies.
props to scarlett for calling it out honestly
Remember the time she asked why the boys got all “the really cool thought-provoking questions’ and she got the ‘rabbit food question’
and i stood up and clapped for her for calling it out
Unless the interviewee initiates this topic…..don’t go there. It’s rude. :/
It’s not even that it’s rude, it’s just sexist plain and simple. This guy thought it was totally a-okay to ask about what Scarlett was wearing under her clothes. Why would he think that’s appropriate? Because society conditions us to believe a woman’s body is not her own. It can be ogled and twisted, and dissected all for the male gaze without any consent given by her. The guy even tries to defend himself by saying “hey it’s not like I asked if you wore lace panties or anything” like way to miss the entire fucking point dude.
You just shouldn’t be asking what’s underneath her costume. Period. It’s none of your business. And none of the guys get asked this question even though Chris and Jeremy also wore extremely tight costumes as well. It’s because Scar is a woman and therefore her body isn’t her own. Or at least that’s what this guy (and many others) seem to believe.
Between this and Anne Hathaways comebacks regarding similar interview questions, I am so happy to see starlets putting their foot down and letting interviewers know this isn’t ok.
I wish I could find it, but it reminds me of an interview that Scarlett had with Natalie Portman about “The Other Bolyn Girl” where the director made some sexist crack about women being overemotional or having periods on the set or something… and they totally verbally backhanded him in front of everyone, it was amazing.
^ I would dearly love to see that interview.
