“In social networks, I am often thanked for the excellent acting in the film ‘Black Widow’,” she said, adding that her followers always ask if she had ever spoken with her or if the actor knows that she exists.
She first came to know about her features, which are similar to that of the actor, when she was around 12 years old when some classmates made comments about it.
“I was really taken aback,” she said. “I’ve known I look like her for a while, but I didn’t really think anything of it.”
She wants to live her own life and not that of the actor despite being seen wearing the costume of the “Avengers” character for TikTok videos.
