Fake Scarlett Johansson Quotes
The Scarlett Johansson quote below was posted on a fake Facebook account with the image below from an old Vanity Fair photoshoot and atrributed to Scarlett Johansson. While there is no evidence that these were Johansson’s words the post went viral and inspired thousands of women. They are very powerful words and worth sharing.
47. “Behind the glamour, behind the makeup, behind all those flashy clothes, there’s an ordinary girl who just happens to have an extraordinary job. I have seen young girls follow celebrities and try to be one of them. They try to attain perfection, have the perfect body, perfect skin tone. They aren’t fully aware of the fact that behind the looks there are a lot of designers, makeup artists, and photoshop/video editing. Their whole sense of beauty is flawed. There is no good to looking good if you are conscious all the time about how you look. You should be carefree. Love the real you. The way you are so that even if you are without makeup, you can look into the mirror and with a big smile embrace your imperfections. Just imagine if you don’t even love yourself how do you expect anyone to love you. So first and foremost learn to love yourself by being who you are and not what the world wants you to be. All you need to do is have a great heart and be compassionate towards others. I hope you spread the message and let the world know that you value inner beauty more than the outer appearance.” – Scarlett Johansson
