Bam, pow, ka-ching!
Scarlett Johansson has officially earned more money than any other movie actress at the box office. That’s an impressive feat for her resume.
According to Box Office Mojo’s calculations, the A-lister is now 10th on the site’s top grossing film stars in Hollywood, with a total revenue of USD3.3 billion domestically, throughout the duration of her career.
At 31, Johansson is the youngest movie star and the only female in the top 10 elite group. The actress has appeared as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in 5 Marvel blockbuster hits (“Iron Man 2”, “The Avengers”, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, and the recent “Captain America: Civil War“). She was also the voice of Kaa in “The Jungle Book” and starred in “Hail, Caesar!” earlier this year.
The movie star is currently leaps and bounds ahead of her fellow actresses. The next highest grossing female actress is Cameron Diaz, who stands at No. 19, followed by Helena Bonham Carter (No. 26), Cate Blanchett (No. 29), Julia Roberts (No. 30), Elizabeth Banks (No. 31), Emma Watson (No. 32), and Anne Hathaway (No. 50).
Johansson also recently spoke about Hollywood’s gender wage gap, saying, “I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage … I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”
