Scarlett Johansson appeared on Tuesday’s “Good Morning America,” where she discussed her new movie Ghost in the Shell. Watch the full “GMA” interview below!

The actress sat down for a one-on-one interview with Michael Strahan on the morning show about the upcoming sci-fi thriller, based on a Japanese animated classic about a cyber-enchanted crime fighter. “You’re always kicking butt, you’re always saving the world,” Strahan said. “Somebody’s got to,” Johansson joked.

The actress went on to talk about the criticism surrounding her casting for the movie, with some claiming her character should be played by an Asian actress. “This character is living a very unique experience, she is a human brain in an entirely machine body, she is essentially identity-less,” the actress said. “I would never attempt to play a person of a different race. Hopefully any question that comes up of my casting will hopefully be answered by audiences when they see the film.”

Johansson, who gave an emotional speech at the Women’s March in January, then spoke about her passion for women’s rights. “I’m not afraid to say what I feel is right just because I think I might face criticism, or some people might not like me. If fighting for women’s rights, if that will mean some people don’t want to buy a ticket to see Ghost In A Shell, then I’m okay with that.” Watch the full “GMA” interview below, in which Johansson also discusses the next Avengers movie.
