Progressives are taking aim at famed actress Scarlett Johansson for denouncing the prominent role political correctness plays in Hollywood.

In an interview with As If magazine, the 34-year-old actress lamented changes in the film industry from her time as child actress until now, which culminated in being on the receiving end of PC outrage after accepting the role of a transgender person for the film “Rub & Tub.”

“You know, as an actor I should be allowed to play any person, or any tree, or any animal because that is my job and the requirements of my job,” Johansson explained, according to the Daily Mail. “I feel like it’s a trend in my business and it needs to happen for various social reasons, yet there are times it does get uncomfortable when it affects the art because I feel art should be free of restrictions.”

Johansson then took direct aim at political correctness.

“I think society would be more connected if we just allowed others to have their own feelings and not expect everyone to feel the way we do,” she said.

After outrage, Johansson later removed herself from “Rub & Tub.” However, it wasn’t the first time she was criticized for accepting a film role. She was also bashed for playing the lead role in “Ghost in the Shell,” a Japanese-based sci-fi film.

Progressives on social media mocked and ridiculed the actress.

    What a bunch of bullies. I respect Johansson for having the nerve to say that. She had to know exactly how those perverted morons would take it, and that they’d go after her for it.

    She’s 100% correct. Acting is just that … acting. You have to be able to play any type of characters. I’ve seen plenty of gay actors play straight parts so all it’s doing is putting them in gay parts and removing them from others. They’ve shot themselves in the foot on this one.

    What comes to my mind is the wonderful job Tom Hanks did in the Philadelphia Story. Did anyone shame/bully him?

    Good to know she has a mind of her own, instead of following the usual Hollywood P.C. zombies,

    If some folks in Hollywood were not outraged about something at least weekly, we would never hear from them again. Being a “star” is not the same as it was 25 years ago.
