Scarlett Johansson was born in November 22, 1984. She is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North (1994). Johansson subsequently starred in Manny & Lo in 1996, and garnered further acclaim and prominence with roles in The Horse Whisperer (1998) and Ghost World (2001). She shifted to adult roles with her performances in Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003) and Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003), for which she won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Her subsequent films included A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004), Woody Allen’s Match Point (2005), The Island (2005), The Black Dahlia (2006), The Prestige (2006), The Other Boleyn Girl (2008), Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), He’s Just Not That Into You (2009), Don Jon (2013), Her (2013), Under the Skin (2013), and Lucy (2014). Since 2010, Johansson has also portrayed the Marvel Comics character Natasha Romanoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play for her performance in the 2010 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. As a singer, Johansson has released two albums, Anywhere I Lay My Head and Break Up.

Johansson is considered one of Hollywood’s modern sex symbols, and has frequently appeared in published lists of the sexiest women in the world, including when she was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in both 2006 and 2013 (the only woman to be chosen for the title twice), and the “Sexiest Celebrity” by Playboy magazine in 2007. As of July 2016, she is the highest-grossing actress of all time in North America, and tenth overall, with her films making over $3.3 billion. Most of her box office success is attributed to her portrayal of Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In 2015, Johansson played the Black Widow in Avengers: Age of Ultron, alongside the original cast of the first Avengers film. A mixture of close-ups, concealing costumes, stunt doubles and visual effects were used to help hide Johansson’s pregnancy during filming.

On January 5, 2015, Variety announced that Johannson signed on to play the lead role in a film adaptation of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, which will be directed by Rupert Sanders and produced by Avi Arad and Steven Paul. The casting of Johansson for the film was met with criticism from many fans and critics, calling the choice “whitewashing”. A petition was created in the effort to have Johansson removed from the project.

Johansson again reprised her role as Black Widow in Captain America: Civil War, released in May 2016. In 2016, she was cast as The Major in Ghost In The Shell which came in March 2017.
