During her time filming Marvel’s “Iron Man 2,” Scarlett Johansson, who portrayed Black Widow, expressed her love for voiceover work. She shared that she has previously worked on projects where she only provided her voice and found it interesting to rely solely on that aspect of her acting abilities. Johansson explained that as an actor, your voice is just as important as your physical appearance, and losing one of those elements can make everything more intense. Furthermore, she finds voice work fascinating because it allows her to experiment with different inflections and nuances in her vocal performance. When asked if she or her husband (Colin Jost) were musical, Johansson mentioned that she has a strong voice and enjoys singing around the house. However, she admitted that Jost is tone deaf but still enjoys singing. In high school, he even performed in “Fiddler on the Roof” multiple times.
