Chris Evans & Jeremy Renner Call Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow 'Slut' & 'Whore' (Video)

Chris Evans & Jeremy Renner Call Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow 'Slut' & 'Whore' (Video)

UPDATE: Jeremy and Chris have both issued apology statements.

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are in a bit of hot water for an Avengers: Age of Ultron interview they gave to DigitalSpy, where they call Scarlett Johansson‘s Black Widow character a “slut” and “whore.”

“She’s a slut,” Jeremy says first about the character, causing Chris to burst into laughter. “I was gonna say something along that line,” Chris says through his hysterics. “She’s a complete whore!” he adds.

Since the video was released, there’s been a ton of backlash as those words are considered very taboo against women.

    jeremy renner: that slut!!…haha manly stuff!…please don’t tell anyone I suck dick.

  • frikibabe

    Scarlett will probably defend now women’s rights

  • dalovelee

    Sadly for Johansson she will have to take the high road and dismiss their banter. OK we get it, they are huge stars and can get away with saying sexist dung…but this is the same sexist woman-hating conversations male actors producers have behind the scenes. Do they realize when the slut shame the character people associate Johansson with that character.

    it was only a joke…a funny one actully!

  • tia maria

    it was clearly a joke plus some women even use those words to shame other women or their friends but nobody says anything about it.They are referring to a fictional character not Scarlett who plays Black Widow in the film.

    You know what? These guys are role models to many young kids, so they should have thought about saying such things before making a “joke” (which was ANYTHING but funny, btw). Steve Rogers and Clint Barton would be disappointed.

    “bend over luna let me and my friends stick it in you while your dad watches and you squeal like the slut you are”…………LUNA JESUS IT WAS JUST A JOKE!! Humor is the default excuse. It’s a joke to you until it affects you.

  • Arx

    Here we go with all the feminist… It was a joke. I hate how everyone gets offended by everything people say. I call my friend a slut all the time in a jokingly way, even-though she is far from that.

    i understand why they said it , also i think so too, black widow in one movie she seems that she is in love with hawkeye and in other movie she is flirting with steve and in this one for the trailers it seems that she is now flirting with bruce, so for me is funny why they said it

  • Lee

    Irresponsible, like Letterman joke, and both not even funny….

  • Lola

    I’d expect that from Renner but not from Evans, I’m upset.

  • Michele V

    Oh god, as always, people making something out of nothing. And I speak as somebody who supports women’s rights.

  • FerCat

    The character is modeled that way. She did try to use her body to seduce a god in the previous movie.

    Didn’t people complain about how women in comics are drawn like sluts and whores. They just happen to agree.

  • Bea

    Of course they meant it as a joke (it wasn’t funny, but whatever). But it’s one thing to say that between them, and another to say such things in an interview. Different contexts, different impact. I’m disappointed, and I hope they at least apologise.

  • Bea

    Just because she has her tactics, it doesn’t make her a slut. If a man tried the same thing on a woman, would you call him a slut, too?

    You wouldn’t, because that’s considered ‘normal’.

    Besides, her suit is just as tight and form-fitting as Cap’s suit. A bit of a double standard there, no?

  • Emistris

    I think that people just got it wrong…that was just a joke about black widow, they were talking about the character NOT the actress! People should think before judging!

  • FerCat

    ‘would you call him a slut, too?’
    Um, no. He’d be called a manwhore. And are you using the spiderwoman argument to support ‘sluttish’ modeling of female characters?

    It was mocking the question – both of them have defended her in the past from sexist comments. how many times do you think they’ve been asked that question on the press tour? how many times do you think they’ve gotten bored of it. they were mockign the question by giving the answer they knew the interviewer wanted – that Nat is only a sexy sidekick. it wasn’t at all serious.

  • Tom James

    The Black Widow character in the comics sleeps with men for money. She’s a spy and that is part of her job. She goes undercover…literally!

  • Louis XV

    Calm down double standards, you call Miley Cyrus, Madonna and many others singer “whore” or “slut” and they were joking, so?? Get over it, Black Widow is not even a real person. Stop doing drama of nothing!!

  • Violet

    People went overboard as usual

  • OilTycoon

    Have you ever been on a press junket? It’s a day of meeting and greeting dozens of reporters who come in and toss 100 different questions at you. Get over yourselves. Why are kids watching filler boring interviews anyhow? Censorship police much?

  • OilTycoon

    Wow. You are truly a Portlandia retard(sorry I called you a retard, are you gonna tweet about it and cry?)

  • OilTycoon

    What is so dirty about the word anyhow? What happened to the n word and owning that word? If you want to sleep around and be promiscuous, then you should own up to being a slut. What else do you call women or men who sleep around? Sounds like a bunch of loose women are just upset that they are being targeted. You can really tell which women are the biggest sluts based on their reaction.

  • OilTycoon

    Lol burn Did you use your tears to masturbate yourself to sleep last night?
