Scarlett Johansson Hates Her Thighs — is This Conversation Really Necessary From a '10 Most Fascinating People' Interview?
When a woman with one of the best figures in the industry doesn't like her body, there's little hope that body shaming is going to die out anytime soon. Barbara Walters interviewed Scarlett Johnasson, and, surprisingly, the curvy actress isn't too impressed with her body.
As part of her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014 interview, Johnansson admitted she doesn't like her thighs, or her midsection. She admitted to body insecurity, and confessed that she thinks her body is just "okay." Whoa, there, ScarJo. You're consistently on the best beach bodies lists, men jaw-drop when they see you on screen, and you JUST had a baby! Give yourself a little more credit, here.
Now, in all fairness, just because she's a celebrity doesn't make her any less female, and most women are insecure about their bodies. Part of me empathizes with her, like it's kind of cool that she's relatable and down-to-earth, but on the other hand, enough with the body hate. As a celebrity, you're given a platform, and it should be used to spread positivity when possible. But the real question is — how is any conversation even remotely related to this relevant for a 10 Most Fascinating People interview? Because if this kind of gossip is what gets you on the list, that's a pretty sad reflection on our culture this year.
And for the record — her body is pretty banging.
