Scarlett Johansson finds being a woman actor difficultAugust 18th, 2008 - 7:52 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Aug 18 (ANI): American actress Scarlett Johansson has revealed that as a woman, she finds it more difficult to succeed in the movie industry.
Johansson, who has called the industry as “vain”, declared that it is “harder for women”.
“Acting is definitely harder for women. Women kind of wilt as men sort of achieve as they get older, like wine or whatever. It’’s like, ”Oh, she’’s past her prime and she can”t play a sex symbol.” It’’s just a preconceived notion about women in general and particularly in this industry. It’’s a very vain, vain industry,” China Daily reported her as saying.
The ”Vicky Cristina Barcelona” actress, who released her debut solo album ”Anywhere I Lay My Head” earlier this year, also revealed her plans for the future.
“I would love to do another album. It was fantastic to not only live with that music that I love every day but to work with such wonderful musicians. It’’s like a whole little creative commune we had,” she revealed to Britain’’s Hello! magazine.
Right now, I would like to focus on developing something to direct. I have wanted to direct since I was 12. I remember making ”The Horse Whisperer” and thinking, ”I want that guy’’s job!”” she added. (ANI)
