Scarlett Johansson called first daughter Ivanka Trump's actions "cowardly" and "baffling" Thursday during an interview with Arianna Huffington at the Women in the World Summit in New York. Johansson said she has not been impressed with the first daughter's performance in her father's administration until now.

Johansson's reaction followed Ivanka's interview with CBS This Morning host Gayle King where she addressed the idea about her being "complicit" with President Donald Trump's policies.

"If being complicit is wanting to ... be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit," Ivanka said during her interview. "I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing."

"I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job, and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be," she added.

Referring to Ivanka's comments, Johansson said: "I've been thinking a lot about Ivanka Trump actually, very recently. I'm sure you saw the interview she did with Gayle King yesterday. It was kind of baffling, I have to say, really baffling."

"You can't have it both ways, right? If you take a job as a public advocate, then you must advocate publicly, right?" she continued.

Johansson earlier last month mimicked Ivanka on an episode of "Saturday Night Live" (SNL) in a parody of a perfume ad for America's first daughter's new fragrance that was sarcastically titled "Complicit." The spoof also spoke about how the first daughter has been complicit to her father's policies and did not do anything about them.

"(Ivanka) said…she felt that the greatest change she would make would be behind closed doors and nobody would actually know that she had made this change," Johansson went on to explain her disappointment with Ivanka during her interview. "How old-fashioned, this idea that behind a great man is a great woman. You can't appear to be concerned that someone is going to think that you are b----y, or a powerful woman. Screw that, it is so old fashioned and it is so uninspired and actually really cowardly."

"I was just so disappointed by that interview that she gave," Johansson said referring to Ivanka's CBS interview and expressed her disappointment.
