ScarJo vs. AI: Hollywood's Latest Drama Queen Takes on the Tech Bros

Well, well, well. If it isn't Hollywood's Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson, coming out swinging against the AI overlords. Who would've thought that the actress who played an AI in "Her" would end up fighting one in real life? Oh, the irony is thicker than Thor's biceps.

So, ScarJo's got her panties in a twist because OpenAI allegedly tried to recreate her sultry voice without so much as a "pretty please with a cherry on top." The nerve of these tech bros, thinking they can just sample celebrity voices like they're at a Costco tasting booth.

Our girl Scarlett is now on a crusade, crying about how "vulnerable" we all are to AI misuse. Yeah, because that keeps the average Joe up at night - worrying about an AI stealing their non-existent million-dollar voice. Get real, ScarJo.

But wait, there's more! OpenAI's big cheese, Sam Altman, dared approach Johansson to voice their ChatGPT 4.0 system. She declined for "personal reasons." Was the paycheck not big enough? Or maybe she was worried the AI would do a better job acting than her. Ouch.

Now, Altman's backpedalling faster than a politician caught in a scandal, claiming the voice isn't actually hers. Sure, buddy. And I'm the Queen of England.

Meanwhile, Channing Tatum, Scarlett's co-star in their new flick "Fly Me To The Moon" (which sounds about as exciting as watching paint dry), is worried about AI taking people's jobs. I hate to break it to you, Channing, but an AI could probably replicate your acting skills with its circuits tied behind its back.

Let's be real here. While Scarlett's out here championing "individual rights," the rest of us are just trying to figure out how to get our Alexa to understand our pizza order. Talk about first-world problems.

In the grand scheme of things, is an AI mimicking Scarlett Johansson's voice the hill we want to die on? With all the problems in the world, this feels as pressing as a debate over which Hemsworth's brother is the hottest.

But hey, at least it's giving ScarJo something to talk about other than her next Marvel paycheck. Because God forbid we focus on actual acting talent instead of AI voice clones.

So, buckle up, folks. The AI apocalypse is apparently upon us, and it sounds suspiciously like Scarlett Johansson. Hide your voices, hide your likeness, and for the love of all that is holy, don't let the AI near your Marvel contract negotiations.
