Scarlett Johansson and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken out about rumors of a feud between them on the set of “Iron Man 2,” and discussed their feelings about being done with Marvel movies. Both actresses appeared in the 2010 film, with Johansson making her debut as the character Black Widow.
Rumors of a feud between Johansson and Paltrow began circulating after Paltrow seemingly forgot that she had appeared in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” during an interview. Some speculated that this was a deliberate slight towards Johansson and other female Marvel stars.
However, in a recent joint interview with Vanity Fair, Johansson and Paltrow denied any feud between them, with Johansson stating that “There’s always been a lot of female solidarity on set…It’s just great to work with other women.” Paltrow echoed these sentiments, saying that “I adore Scarlett. I would do anything with her.”
Both actresses also discussed their feelings about being done with Marvel movies, with Johansson stating that “that chapter is over” for her, and Paltrow saying that “I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point.” However, both actresses expressed gratitude for their time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Johansson describing it as “a fantastic experience” and Paltrow calling it “such a fulfilling decade of work.”
The interview offers a rare glimpse into the lives and perspectives of two of Hollywood’s most prominent actresses, as well as their experiences working in the highly competitive and lucrative world of Marvel movies. While rumors of a feud between Johansson and Paltrow may have made headlines in the past, this interview shows that the reality is far more positive, with both actresses expressing respect and admiration for one another.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand and evolve, it remains to be seen what the future holds for both Johansson and Paltrow. However, their comments in this interview suggest that whatever comes next, they will continue to approach their work with professionalism, dedication, and a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunities they have had.
