Creator: Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson (November 22, 1984-) is an American actress of Danish and Jewish descent. She started acting at a young age, debuting in North, then later got attention for roles in The Horse Whisperer and Ghost World. She then broke through in 2003 with both Lost in Translation (which she won a BAFTA for) and the adaptation of Girl with a Pearl Earring. She has developed a close working relationship with Woody Allen, appearing in major roles in three of his films. She also won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2010 revival of A View from the Bridge. She's also Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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 The Jesus and Mary Chain to sing backing vocals on "Just Like Honey." She then proceeded to make an album full of Dream Pop covers of Tom Waits songs, and managed to bring David Bowie to sing on one of the songs. She also appears on the compilation album Unexpected Dreams: Songs From the Stars and on the song soundtrack for He's Just Not That Into You; she's also performed the Oscar-nominated "Before My Time" for Chasing Ice (in which she doesn't appear) and "The Moon Song" with Joaquin Phoenix for Her (in which she does appear...sort of).

Scarlett's directorial debut, unlike that of her one-time co-star Natalie Portman, was cut from the anthology film New York, I Love You; but fans of Miss Johansson (and Kevin Bacon, 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 Ryan Reynolds between 2008 and 2011, and in 2014, became the mother of daughter Rose via her second husband Romain Dauriac.

She is now attached to star in a Hollywood adaptation of ''Ghost in the Shell''. Asian-Americans and anime fans are rather unhappy that yet another white person got cast in a clearly Asian role.

Her Films Include:


  • Anywhere I Lay My Head (2008)
  • Break Up (with Pete Yorn) (2009)
