Washington, January 14 (ANI): Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she would turn to direction as soon as she begins to age and face the threat of being replaced by budding beauties.

The Girl with a Pearl Earring actress said that she had already drawn plans to secure herself against the ”ageist” Hollywood trend.

“It’’s hard to be a 24-year-old actor and not be typecast. A lot of roles are either for a sexy person or a Juno-type character, Contactmusic quoted her as telling America’’s Harper’’s Bazaar magazine.

“That ageism makes the actress fearful for her future, making her consider another path within the industry.

There is some weird ageist quality in Hollywood, perhaps that’’s why I lean more toward directing and development.

“That’’s probably the direction I”ll take; I can”t keep up this face forever, you know, she added. (ANI)
