Scarlett Johansson (November 22, 1984-) is an American-born actress of Danish descent. She started acting at a young age, including a debut in ''Film/{{North}}'' (hey, she was [[PayingTheirDues Paying Her Dues]]), then later got attention for roles in ''Film/TheHorseWhisperer'' and ''GhostWorld''. She then broke through in 2003 with the film adaptation of the book ''Film/GirlWithAPearlEarring'', and ''Film/LostInTranslation''; she won a BAFTA for the latter. She is Jewish and has developed a close working relationship with Creator/WoodyAllen, appearing in major roles in three of his films.

Today, she is considered one of the most beautiful actresses in UsefulNotes/{{Hollywood}}, with her almost-exotic face, gorgeous eyes, her voice, and her huge... [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail tracts of land]]. She also won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2010 revival of ''Theatre/AViewFromTheBridge''.

Scarlett also has a music career goin' on. She first gained attention from indie kids for appearing onstage during the first concert of a reunited TheJesusAndMaryChain to sing backing vocals on "Just Like Honey." She then proceeded to make an album full of DreamPop covers of TomWaits songs, and managed to bring ''DavidBowie'' to sing on one of the songs. She also appears on the compilation album ''[[http://www.amazon.com/Unexpected-Dreams-Songs-From-Stars/dp/B000EHQ8IC/ref=sr_1_8?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1339924784&sr=1-8&keywords=scarlett+johansson Unexpected Dreams: Songs From the Stars]]'' and on the song soundtrack for ''Film/HesJustNotThatIntoYou''; she's also performed the Oscar-nominated "Before My Time" for ''Chasing Ice'' (in which she doesn't appear) and "The Moon Song" with Creator/JoaquinPhoenix for ''Film/{{Her}}'' (in which she ''does'' appear... [[CelebrityVoiceActor sort of]]).

She's also ComicBook/BlackWidow in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.

Scarlett's directorial debut - unlike that of her [[TheOtherBoleynGirl one-time]] co-star Creator/NataliePortman - was cut from the anthology film ''New York, I Love You''; but fans of Miss Johansson (and KevinBacon, who stars in the short) can see it on the DVD as an extra. She's set to make her feature directing bow in 2014 with an adaptation of Truman Capote's ''Summer Crossing'' (as with the aforementioned short, she also scripted).

She was married to RyanReynolds between 2008 and 2011.

!!Provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: As Black Widow, obviously, but see also ''Lucy''.
* TheCastShowoff: Can, and will, burst into song at every chance. Even in ''TheOtherBoleynGirl''. {{Lampshaded}} in ''HesJustNotThatIntoYou'' [[spoiler:in that, although we get to see her singing in one of the final scenes, we don't actually ''hear'' it (although her song is on the soundtrack album)]].
* CelebrityVoiceActor: She's lent her husky tones to Mindy in ''TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie,'' Samantha in ''Film/{{Her}}'', and various characters on ''Series/RobotChicken''.
* DawsonCasting: Inverted. She was seventeen when making ''Film/LostInTranslation''. Her character is a college graduate.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Music/KatyPerry and [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Lois Griffin]] are among those who love her.
* FakeBrit:
** In ''Film/ThePrestige'' and ''The Other Boleyn Girl''.
** Although two of her three Creator/WoodyAllen films are set in London, she plays an American in all three.
** In-story in ''Film/UnderTheSkin''; she plays an alien who pretends to be a British woman.
* FanService: See ''LostInTranslation'', ''Film/IronMan2'', ''HesJustNotThatIntoYou'', ''Film/TheSpirit'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''. Not to mention the PantyShot in ''ThePerfectScore''.

* MsFanservice
* NoExportForYou: Unusually for Scarlett (and for Creator/WoodyAllen), ''Scoop'' didn't get a British theatrical or DVD release, going straight to '''television''' (''A Love Song For Bobby Long'' is the only other film with Johansson in recent memory not to get cinema release - or any other kind of release - in the UK).
* TheOtherMarty: To Samantha Morton in ''Film/{{Her}}''.
* PlatonicLifePartners: With Creator/ChrisEvans. She has stated in interviews that her close friendship with him contributed very much to their onscreen chemistry in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''.
