Not surprised to read this. I saw a lot of outcry about the casting. she didn't want another Ghost in the Shell on her hands.

That's so stupid that people are/were upset about her in this role. You don't have to BE the thing you are portraying. It's called acting. All these people bitching about it should be thankful she was willing to take the role. Having a huge star like Johansson in the film would give it much more publicity and get what I assume is an important story for the trans community out to more people.

I like that.


I agree, but I also don't. Hollywood has this nasty habit of overlooking very capable people for roles that they would be more suited for, for these huge list actors/actresses. ScarJo probably got MORE backlash, because she literally just did ghost in the shell, which should've been an asian role.

Hollywood whitewashing is a real thing, and so this kind of extends. That being said, I also don't agree with casting people based on their physical appearances, so...... tomato tomato
