Bodacious, courageous, vivacious…it can only be Scarlett Johansson! While she grew up with “little money”, her film buff mother took young Scarlett to many commercial and film auditions, where she eventually landed a role in North in 1994. Despite a promising start with praise for her “peaceful aura”, her breakthrough performance only came seven years later in dark comedy, Ghost World.
From this point, the teenager’s film career sky-rocketed as she transitioned to adult roles with films like The Girl with the Pearl Earring and Vicky Christina Barcelona, taking her only a decade to land a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
Over this time, the sultry actress has made regular appearances in sex symbol lists from Maxim, Playboy, GQ, Men’s Health and FHM, the only woman to be chosen twice for the title of “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire. While a high-grossing Hollywood darling, Johansson’s had her share of controversy. She was the victim of a cell phone hack in 2013, which exposed several nude photos of the actress intended for then-husband, Ryan Reynolds. She was the first celebrity to endorse Sodastream, which conflicted with her charity work for Oxfam, who opposed her lucrative deal with the Israeli-based company.
Johansson’s worked with many legendary Hollywood directors including: Woody Allen, Brian De Palma, Luc Besson, Christopher Nolan, Spike Jonze, Joss Whedon and the Coen brothers. While she’s never garnered an Academy Award nomination, she’s received four nominations for Golden Globes and lauded with critical acclaim for her performances in Lost in Translation, Match Point, Don Jon, Under the Skin, Her and recurring roles as ‘Black Widow’ in the Avengers series. She’s had to get used to skin-tight outfits, including the translucent cat suit in the spellbinding live-action adaptation of the anime classic, Ghost in the Shell. Armed with star quality, talent and sex appeal, there certainly is something about Scarlett.
