Scarlett Johansson Speaks Out About AI Generated Porn Using Her Image

Scarlett Johansson is speaking out against “deepfake” porn, after her image and likeness was used in pornographic content without her consent.

The 34-year-old actress’ face has been cut and pasted using artificial-intelligence software to create convincingly lifelike videos numerous times and it’s not just happening to her – it’s happening to women who aren’t famous too.

“Clearly this doesn’t affect me as much because people assume it’s not actually me in a porno, however demeaning it is,” Scarlett told The Washington Post.

She continued, “I think it’s a useless pursuit, legally, mostly because the internet is a vast wormhole of darkness that eats itself. There are far more disturbing things on the dark web than this, sadly. I think it’s up to an individual to fight for their own right to the their image, claim damages, etc…It’s a fruitless pursuit for me but a different situation than someone who loses a job over their image being used like that.”

Scarlett added that women must take great care “to protect their identities and personal content,” which can at times “is basically a lost cause.”

“The Internet is just another place where sex sells and vulnerable people are preyed upon. And any low level hacker can steal a password and steal and identity. It’s just a matter of time before any one person is targeted,” Scarlett said.
