Known for her sultry voice and stunning good looks, Scarlett Johansson is a talented actress whose credits date back to her childhood. As one of Hollywood’s top leading ladies, she’s commanded roles on the silver screen, television and Broadway.
Scarlett Johansson’s birthday is Nov. 22, and the “Rough Night” star will turn 33. From “The Horse Whisperer” to “Ghost in a Shell,” Johansson has worked her way up to reign as one of wealthiest women in Hollywood. In honor of her birthday, learn how Johansson became one of the highest-paid women in Hollywood.
Scarlett Johansson Net Worth: $100 Million
Scarlett Johansson earned the No. 1 spot on Forbes’ Top Grossing Actors of 2016 list, generating a total of $1.2 billion at box offices worldwide. No stranger to topping charts, she also ranked No. 2 on Forbes’ list of the World’s Highest-Paid Actresses 2015, bringing in $35.5 million for the year.
Johansson was paid nearly $20 million for her work as the Black Widow in 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and Forbes cited her earnings at $17.5 million for the 2017 film “Ghost in the Shell.” The publication revealed her standard pay rate is more than $10 million per film. This has boosted her net worth to $100 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Movies aren’t Johansson’s only source of income. She has also earned an undisclosed amount of money from Dolce & Gabbana and SodaStream endorsements, according to Forbes. The latter actually cost the actress her longtime role as an Oxfam ambassador; she stepped down from the position in 2014 over a difference in opinion with the group over SodaStream’s West Bank factory.
Regarding Scarlet Johansson’s house, it’s fitting for a Hollywood starlet. In 2015, the actress purchased a $3.88 million, 3,500-square-foot home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz, reported Variety. Also included in her real estate portfolio is a $2.2 million custom-built 3,500-square-foot home in the Amagansett area of New York’s ritzy beachside community, the Hamptons.
Scarlett Johansson: Black Widow and Other Career Highlights
Johansson began acting in commercials at age 7, but quickly decided she’d prefer to be on the big screen. She started taking acting classes on weekends and landed a part in the off-Broadway production “Sophistry” — opposite Ethan Hawke — by age 8. Her big break came at age 13 when she gained worldwide notoriety for her critically acclaimed performance in “The Horse Whisperer.”
Johansson solidified herself as a superstar with her starring role in 2003’s “Lost in Translation.” This earned her a Golden Globe nomination for best comedic actress. That same year, she earned another Golden Globe nod for her work in the “Girl with the Pearl Earring.”
Since then, several other Scarlett Johansson movies have turned into major box office hits, such as “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: Civil War” and “The Jungle Book.”
Johansson’s talents extend to the stage, where she has starred in two Broadway plays — “A View From the Bridge” in 2010 and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” in 2013. Her performance in “A View From the Bridge” landed her a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play.
