Johansson Snubs Teen Typecasting

Jan 14, 2005 | 12:49pm EST

Rising star Scarlett Johansson considers herself lucky she's had the chance to play such a wide variety of roles in her short acting career--because so many teenage stars get typecast.

The 20-year-old Lost in Translation beauty has managed to steer clear of the usual adolescent film genres--and she is grateful.

Johansson says, "I've played so many different roles, from a high school student to a wife, to a 17th century Dutch maid, to trailer trash.

"For a while, I thought I might get typecast as the bitter, sh**ty teenager who's always sarcastic, but luckily that fear was never a reality."
