There are a lot of problems in this world (like pollution and world hunger), but those things pale in comparison to the massive dilemma Scarlett Johansson is facing nowadays. I didn’t think it was possible, but Hollywood has deemed the actress too attractive for her own good. No seriously, it’s an issue that is even affecting her career. First, director David Fincher admitted to not giving Scarlett the lead female role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo because she was too pretty, and now the author of her current movie adaption Under The Skin, is sharing similar concerns.
A source told The Sun that the author of the book-turned-movie, Michael Faber, isn’t pleased the blonde beauty was given the lead role of Laura, since she’s described in the book as being a rather dumpy-looking character. According to the source, Faber doesn’t believe Scarlett can successfully transform into such an unappealing figure and thinks she’s “too attractive” for the part. It’s unsure at this time if his opinion is strong enough to get Scarlett fired, but since the movie is based off of his book, he may have a great deal of influence over this project. I guess being beautiful really does have its drawbacks.
