Actor Stephen Dorff described films like Black Widow, ‘garbage’ and said that he is ’embarrassed’ for Scarlett Johansson as she has to appear in it.
The latest installment in the long-running Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Widow, will be released in some markets on July 9. In the US, it will also be made available for an additional fee on Disney+. Dorff has said that he still holds out for good films. He was earmarked for stardom in the 90s.
Stephen told The Independent, “I still hunt out the good s**t because I don’t want to be in Black Widow.” “It looks like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game. I’m embarrassed for those people. I’m embarrassed for Scarlett! I’m sure she got paid five, seven million bucks, but I’m embarrassed for her. I don’t want to be in those movies. I really don’t. I’ll find that kid director that’s gonna be the next Kubrick and I’ll act for him instead.”
He further added, “I don’t like playing things too safe.” “To me, Hollywood’s always too safe. When I’ve needed money, sure, I’ve done a couple of weeks on a movie that I didn’t wanna do. See, I like money too because I like to buy things and I like art and real estate.”
Stephen Dorff has appeared in films such as Space Truckers and Blade. In 2010, he made a comeback of sorts with Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere. The actor also starred in the third season of HBO’s True Detective. While Scarlett Johansson will bid farewell to the MCU with Black Widow, co-starring Florence Pugh, Rachel Weisz, and David Harbour and directed by Cate Shortland. Scarlett has played the character since 2010’s Iron Man 2, making her among the highest-paid female actors in the world.
