Scarlett Johansson is too sexy for some roles

Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson claims her good looks and sex appeal have cost her film roles. The 27-year-old actress is considered to be one of the world's most beautiful women and although she is flattered to be considered a sex symbol she claims her gorgeous face and figure have resulted in her losing out artistically. When discussing if she has lost out on roles because she is sexy, she said: "That has happened to me before, yeah. That's always an unfortunate thing to figure out, 'Why can't you see?!' For me, I would imagine when casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definitely not sexy." The We Bought A Zoo star - who was previously married to Ryan Reynolds - does work hard to maintain her enviable figure and avoids meat and dairy products to stay slender. However, Scarlett isn't as strict as some Hollywood actresses with her diet and is happy to indulge in a few glasses of wine now and again. She said: "I live a relatively healthy lifestyle, I think. I'm not overly strict. I like to go out and enjoy myself and drink a couple of glasses of wine and stay out late occasionally and eat a slice of cake. I work out and eat well most of the time and try to get some rest. [I eat] lots of kale. I try to stay away from meat and dairy and foods like that."

    I just don’t see her appeal. But if casting directors think she’s sexy and good looking, and they’re looking for someone who isn’t, then of course they’re not going to cast her. They wouldn’t cast a plain jane in a role that’s for a bombshell, either. If Scarlett doesn’t understand that after all her years in the business then maybe she’s not all that bright. Oh wait, she filed for divorce from Ryan Reynolds. That proves she’s an idiot.

    “avoids meat and dairy products to stay slender”

    Does she really imply that? It seemed like she was trying to say that those types of foods in excess might be unhealthy.

    Big boobs and lips is the appeal

    By looking at this pic or any movie she was in, she was terrible and also not that appealing.

    Ha sexy?!!!!! No kidding?!!! It probably meant the producer/ directors are saying that she is too dimb to play in some of movies!!!

    She’s breathtakingly beautiful. Just like the average person isn’t a huge pile of muscles, actors who are that built probably can’t get roles of a character who is supposed to look like the everyday man. I can imagine that is what it would be like in this situation too.

    She’s one of the ugliest women I’ve ever seen. She’s survived on hype alone.

    its actually quite hilarious, how people are leaving comments saying she is unintelligent or ugly because we all know that is a load of crap! I mean the girl owned the role of black widow and actually made me think it was the black widow i grew up reading about. Also someone claimed she was unintelligent because she divorced Ryan Reynolds … um have you seen Scarlett? She was always way to hot for him and can do much better also unlike some idiots she does not stay with someone just because they look “hot”.
