Move over, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, as Scarlet Johansson has just stolen your nickname. The ‘Avengers’ star has been crowned the highest grossing actress of all time, as her movies have made over $3.3 billion dollars!
Her name is Scarlett, but she’s made a lot of green. Scarlett Johansson, 31, has won awards and broken records with her wide range of films. Now, the gorgeous and talented star of classics like Lost In Translation, Under the Skin, and The Avengers movies has been crowned the queen of the box office!
Scarlett’s movies have made a jaw-dropping $3.3 billion dollars of domestic revenue, according to Box Office Mojo. WOW. It’s no surprise then that she was named the highest grossing actress of all time. She’s actually in the top 10 of most moneymaking actors in history, coming in at the 10th spot.
Scarlett and her 3.3 billion hammers just shattered another glass ceiling. The next female on the list is Cameron Diaz, 43, who charts at number 19. Helena Bonham Carter, 50, is at No. 26, while positions 29-32 are occupied by Cate Blanchett, 47, Julia Roberts, 48, Elizabeth Banks, 42, and Emma Watson, 26. Considering Scarlett is only 31-years-old, it’s safe to say she’s going to rack up an extra billion or two before she retires.
The other stars on the Top 10 include a list of such Hollywood legends that have been acting for longer than Scarlett has been alive. Harrison Ford, 73, Morgan Freeman, 79, Tom Hanks, 59, Eddie Murphy, 55, Tom Cruise, 53, Michael Caine, 83, and Johnny Depp, 53, are on the list. Two of Scarlett’s Avengers co-stars are also there – Samuel L. Jackson, 67, and Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., 51.
Now that Scarlett has broken down another barrier, she’s ready for other women to crack the Top 10 list. “I think ever woman has [been underpaid],” Scarlett said while discussing the gender pay gay in Hollywood with Cosmopolitan magazine. While she acknowledges she “make(s) a really good living,” she said that women making as much as men for equal work still remains a “part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”
Congratulations to Scarlett for making the Top 10 list. HollywoodLifers, are you surprised that Scarlett Johansson is the highest grossing actress in history? Which one of her movies is your favorite?
