Scarlett Ingrid Johansson born November 22, 1984 is an American actress and singer. She has been the world’s highest-paid actress since 2018 and has made multiple appearances in the Forbes Celebrity 100. Her films have grossed over $14.3 billion worldwide, making Johansson the third-highest-grossing box office star of all time. She is the recipient of numerous accolades, including a Tony Award and a British Academy Film Award.

Born and raised in Manhattan, New York City, Johansson aspired to be an actress from a young age and first appeared on stage in an Off-Broadway play as a child. She made her film debut in the fantasy comedy North (1994), and gained early recognition for her roles in Manny & Lo (1996), The Horse Whisperer (1998), and Ghost World (2001). Johansson shifted to adult roles in 2003 with her performances in Lost in Translation, which won her a BAFTA Award for Best Actress, and Girl with a Pearl Earring. She was nominated for Golden Globe Awards for these films, and for playing an estranged teenager in the drama A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004), and a seductress in the psychological thriller Match Point (2005). Other works during this period include the mystery thriller The Prestige (2006) and the comedy-drama Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), and the albums Anywhere I Lay My Head (2008) and Break Up (2009), both of which charted on the Billboard 200.

In 2010, Johansson debuted on Broadway in a revival of A View from the Bridge, which won her a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress, and began portraying Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man 2. She voiced an intelligent computer operating system in the drama Her (2013) and a python in the adventure film The Jungle Book (2016), and starred as an alien in Under the Skin (2013) and a woman with psychokinetic abilities in Lucy (2014), both science fiction films. In 2019, she received praise for playing a single mother in Nazi Germany in the satire Jojo Rabbit and an actress going through a divorce in the comedy-drama Marriage Story.

As a public figure, Johansson is a Hollywood sex symbol. She is a prominent brand endorser and supports various charities. She was married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011, and to French businessman Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a child, from 2014 to 2017.
