ChatGPT voice mode is accused of resembling Scarlett Johansson, OpenAI and I respond

Last week, OpenAI launched a large model update for GPT-4o and brought voice functionality, but this feature caused some controversy. Some community users said that the Sky voice sounded too similar to Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson.

OpenAI issued a response, stating that the five voices (Breeze, Cove, Ember, Juniper and Sky) are all from cooperating voice actors, and Sky's voice does not deliberately imitate Scarlett Johansson. OpenAI is currently deactivating Sky Voice to resolve related issues.

OpenAI stated that they began casting for ChatGPT voices in May 2023 and received more than 400 samples before finally selecting the current 5 voices.

Johnson herself responded to this, stating that in September last year, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman invited her to voice ChatGPT, but she declined the invitation. After discovering that Sky's voice resembled his own, Johnson asked a lawyer to write to OpenAI, and OpenAI reluctantly agreed to remove the "Sky" language.

It is worth mentioning that Scarlett Johansson once voiced an AI assistant in the science fiction movie "Her". After the release of GPT-4o, Altman posted the word "her" on social platforms, which may refer to It's this movie.
