Scarlett Johansson Hits Back At Tony Award Critics
In a new controversy that surrounded the Hollywood beauty, Scarlett Johansson has slammed the critics who claimed that she won the popular Tony Award because of her Hollywood fame. The beauty insisted that she is a hard working person and the award is the recognition of it.
Johansson, 25 also added that she is very upset with the claims and called the allegations as ‘frustrating’.
The actress quoted, "A lot of my friends who are struggling actors are going through the same thing. But I can't apologise for it. I have worked my a*s off to get to where I am so I understand that struggle.”
"For me, it's more about hiring the right person for the job. If somebody is cast because they are a name but they're not right for the job, well, it's very frustrating," she added.
The American actress made her film debut in the 1994 film ‘North’ and was later nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in 1996's ‘Manny & Lo’. Johansson rose to fame with her roles in 1998's ‘The Horse Whisperer’ and 2001's ‘Ghost World’.
