Stephen Dorff Says He 'Felt Bad' About 'S--t Talking' Scarlett Johansson and 'Black Widow'

Stephen Dorff is walking back some of the comments he made about Scarlett Johansson and Black Widow.

Earlier this month, the 47-year-old actor was asked about how he chooses roles and told the Independent, “I still hunt out the good sh*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!”

Stephen spoke with TMZ outside a restaurant in Los Angeles on Monday (July 27) and explained what he meant by some of the comments.

“Oh, I love Scarlett, I think that was taken a little bit out of context, but she’s a great actress,” he told the outlet.

He added that he’s “not a fan” of movies like Black Widow, but said, “I love Scarlett, though. I heard she’s gonna be a mom, so I wish her the best, and she’s an old friend of mine so I felt bad about that comment.”

Stephen also revealed that he hasn’t seen Black Widow yet.

“I don’t really go to those movies,” he explained. “I liked Iron Man, I like when they go a little darker, I love the Joker, I’m looking forward to the new Batman, Matt Reeves’ film.”

“I think that guy in England got me in a moment where I was just s–t talking a little bit and I felt a little bad by it,” he said. “It happens sometimes.”

He discussed the new remake of Blade and addressed whether he would appear in the movie.

“Oh, I don’t think so. That was a long time ago,” he said, before wishing Mahershala Ali good luck on the reboot.

“We did True Detective together and he’s an amazing actor,” he said.

When asked about whether he’d heard from Scarlett after his comments, he said, ““I have, and I sent her a little note. I’m sure she’s been in a situation similar.”
