Scarlett Johansson has spoken out about her face being used in sex videos — stating “it’s just a matter of time” before anyone’s face can be superimposed onto anyone else’s body. 

The industry, known as deep-fakes, has seen many Hollywood producers talk about the dangers taking place when someone can impersonate a voice and simply impose a celebrities face onto their own.

Actor and comedian, Jordan Peele, created a video that showed Barack Obama insulting President Donald Trump, calling him a “dips***”, on camera when in actual fact it was Jordan himself impersonating Barack’s voice and using some easily accessible software.

Scarlett spoke with the Washington Post, and said, “Nothing can stop someone from cutting and pasting my image or anyone else’s onto a different body and making it look as eerily realistic as desired… the fact is that trying to protect yourself from the Internet and its depravity is basically a lost cause… the internet is a vast wormhole of darkness that eats itself.” — you have to admit, she’s got a point.

She continued to say that it may be too late for women to completely protect themselves from the “virtually lawless [online] abyss,”.

This technology can be useful, especially in the film-making industry, for example, if someone cast in a film passes away, their face can be superimposed to patch up any missing scenes — this was done in Furious 7 after Paul Walker died.

Has the Internet gone too far?
