The two-time cross Oscar nominee said that she`s "going to have opinions about things since that is exactly who I am''.

American actress Scarlett Johansson recently had a thoughtful conversation about her past controversies, and recollected the `humiliating` feeling she had when the indiscretions ` (came) out publicly.`

As per People Magazine, in an interview with U.K. magazine `The Gentlewoman,` the 36-year-old actor quipped that she has "made a profession out of" her missteps. The two-time cross Oscar nominee said that she`s "going to have opinions about things since that is exactly who I am."

She added, "I mean, everyone has a hard time admitting when they`re wrong about stuff, and for all of that to come out publicly, it can be embarrassing."

As detailed by People Magazine, the `Lucy` star has recently been under the fire her role in `Ghost in the Shell `(which many felt should`ve gone to an Asian actor), her comments about being "allowed to play any person" amid backlash for her casting as a transgender character, and her defence of Woody Allen, with whom she has collaborated multiple times.

Johansson told the magazine, "Wow, I was really off mark there,` or, `I wasn`t looking at the big picture,` or, `I was inconsiderate. I`m also a person."The `Dark Widow` star recently disclosed to Marie Claire that it wasn`t her expectation to take her `Phantom in the Shell` job away from an Asian actor saying in 2017, "Variety is significant in Hollywood, and I could never need to feel like I was playing a character that was hostile."

"Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive." "Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that -- the weight of such a big property on my shoulders," she added."
