3 min read

In a recent online advertisement, actress Scarlett Johansson slapped a legal notice on an online app for using her name without her permission to promote the service they offer.

A 22-second advertisement was posted on the X/Twitter network on October 28 featuring Scarlett using an app that uses artificial intelligence to generate images, called Lisa AI: 90s Yearbook & Avatar, to create a video.

Variety reportedly reviewed the online ad, which showed a clip of the actress from the set of 2020’s Black Widow, which was accompanied by a quote from her.

There is an advertisement in which a likeness of the actress is seen saying, “Hey guys, what’s up?” (What’s up, dudes?) My name is Scarlett, and I would like you to come with me to see my new movie.”

There is no limit to what can be done with avatars. Besides creating images with your AI videos, you can also create images with texts. In the voice of fake Scarlett, she advised that you should not miss the event.

In a statement to the outlet, Scarlett’s representative said that the actress wasn’t a spokesperson for the app and did not agree to the use of her name and image.

It has also been reported that the attorney for the Marvel actress, Kevin Yorn, has also spoken with Variety, saying, “We don’t take these matters lightly.”

The lawyer for Scarlett assured me that, according to her usual course of action in these circumstances, all legal remedies that she would have at her disposal would be pursued, according to him.

As for celebrity likenesses being used without the consent of the celebrity, this is not the first time that this has been reported.

As a part of Tom Hanks’ warning to his fans, Tom Hanks sent out a tweet warning them to be careful: “Beware! There is nothing I can do about it. I don’t have anything to do with it.”
