Author: ARAB NEWSTue, 2017-03-28 03:00ID: 1490645178690850300LOS ANGELES: Actress Scarlett Johansson feels ‘icky’ talking personally about the gender pay gap in Hollywood. The “Ghost in the Shell” star is one of the highest grossing actresses in the industry.“There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole,” Johansson told The Observer newspaper.Johansson is known for her work in films like “Captain America: Civil War,” “Lucy,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 2” and “Chef.”During a UK TV interview, the actress went on to discuss equality between the sexes in film, and took another shot at America’s new president Donald Trump.Speaking about the global marches on the day of his inauguration, she said: “It’s important to know the women’s march was not against Trump it was basically a march for women to highlight that we are a very strong force to be reckoned with.“I think people in general can sometimes forget that their rights are not given, you have to fight for and continue to protect for the rights to your body and equal fair pay and they are important to highlight.”Johansson filed for divorce from husband Romain Dauriac in a New York City court earlier this month, saying the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
