Celebrated actress Scarlett Johansson, who is popularly known as 'Black Widow', courtesy Avengers, says she finds praise on her beauty extremely flattering. She feels like it denotes limitation.
She says beauty is something that is one important characteristic of a woman and it really feels confining when it is labeled under certain terms.
"I think perhaps people at some point in the industry would have had a certain idea of my physical capability - sort of like a trap. And there was this label put on me as this bombshell," Johansson said in a statement.
She said that she feels it quite flattering when someone calls her 'sexy.'
"I think while it's been flattering to be someone who is sexy, there's something very confining about that. It implies that your strength comes from your sexuality," said the 31-year-old actress.
While talking about her experience being in the entertainment industry, the actress said that she had experienced enough in her 20-year--long career. Her strength comes from the ups and down she has faced in her career.
"I've been in this industry for over 20 years. My experience has been that with every risk, there's a loss and gain. You hope that you learn something. I get a lot of power from taking risks and bracing myself for the outcome." Johansson added.
