SCARLETT JOHANSSON- BODY SHAMING
Body Shaming is humiliating, with often painful and long-term consequences its victims, tearing down self-respect and perpetuating the harmful idea that our unique physical appearances should be compared to airbrushed notions of perfect. In actual really a matter is our character and humanity. While body shaming, in itself, is not a crime, there are circumstances in which invading one’s privacy to accomplish it can be and we shouldn’t tolerate that. Body size has always been a huge issue for women in Hollywood and Bollywood and every day trashy magazine and websites are discussing who is too fat, too skinny and gaining weight. We should not be judgmental regarding any body type or size if someone is fat doesn’t judge her for her body size because person humanity is matter, not her body. The same happened with Scarlett Johansson.
Scarlett Johansson is an America actress and singer. She was among the world’s highest paid actress from 2014 to 2016. She born and raised in Manhattan, New York city, she aspired to be an actress from a young age, and first appeared on stage in an off-Broadway play as a child.
Scarlett Johansson said about body shaming that people are obsessed with weight and curves. I have my own standard of how I like to look. I’m a healthy person and take care of myself. She has repeatedly had a conversation about how frustrating it is viewed in term of her body or weight, and while I’m sure that is true for every actress in Hollywood, she seems to be one of the rare ones who refuse to respond to it other than to say that it is ridiculous.
Scarlett Johansson wrote an article also about weight issues that since dedicating I to getting into “superhero shape,” several articles regarding my weight have been brought to my attention. Claims have been made that I’ve been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I’ve never met and I’m someone who has always publicity advocated for a healthy body image and the idea that the media would maintain that I have lost an impossible amount of weight by someone sort of crash diet or miracle workout is ludicrous. I believe it is reckless and dangerous of these publications to sell this type of story and it is great to get tips on how to lead a healthier lifestyle, but I don’t want some imaginary account of “How She Did it!” I get into and stay in shape by eating a proper diet and maintaining a healthy amount of exercise. The press should be held accountable for the false ideals they sell to their readers regarding body image. Media should raise the awareness about the dangers of eating disorders and body shape.
We need to stop this at this very moment, and we can do that by making people who shame others realise how this affects life of those who go through this and how dangerous it is for their minds and bodies both to be body shamed just because they don’t land into the definition of beauty and perfection set by the society.
