'''Scarlett Johansson''' (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress of Danish and Jewish descent. She started acting at a young age, debuting in ''Film/{{North}}'', then later got attention for roles in ''Film/TheHorseWhisperer'' and ''ComicBook/GhostWorld''. She then broke through in 2003 with both ''Film/LostInTranslation'' (which she won a BAFTA for) and the adaptation of ''Film/GirlWithAPearlEarring''. She has developed a close working relationship with Creator/WoodyAllen, appearing in major roles in three of his films. She also won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2010 revival of ''Theatre/AViewFromTheBridge''. She's also ComicBook/BlackWidow in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse.

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 Music/TheJesusAndMaryChain to sing backing vocals on "Just Like Honey." She then proceeded to make an album full of DreamPop covers of Music/TomWaits songs, and managed to bring ''Music/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]]).

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 Creator/KevinBacon, who stars in the short) can see it on the DVD as an extra. She was 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), but production was delayed (see the next paragraph for the most likely reason). She's set to direct an Creator/EllieGoulding concert for American Express in November 2015.

She was married to RyanReynolds between 2008 and 2011, and in November 2012, began dating French advertising executive Roman Dauriac. In September 2014, Scarlett gave birth to a daughter, Rose Dorothy, and she and Dauriac married on October 1, 2014 in Philipsburg, Montana. They divide their time between homes in New York City and Paris.

!!Provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: As Black Widow, obviously, but see also ''Lucy''.
** PintSizedPowerhouse: Given she's only 5' 3" (1,6 m)... and since the Avengers are all OneHeadTaller (even the average-sized Robert Downey Jr. and Jeremy Renner), makes Black Widow's feats more impressive.
* TheCastShowoff: Can, and will, burst into song at every chance. Even in ''TheOtherBoleynGirl''. {{Lampshaded}} in ''Film/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 ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie,'' Samantha in ''Film/{{Her}}'', and various characters on ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''.
* DawsonCasting: Inverted. She was seventeen when making ''Film/LostInTranslation''. Her character is a college graduate.
* DeadpanSnarker
* 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.
* FakeRussian: As Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow.
* FanService: See ''Film/LostInTranslation'', ''Film/IronMan2'', ''Film/HesJustNotThatIntoYou'', ''Film/TheSpirit'' and ''Film/TheAvengers''. Not to mention the PantyShot in ''Film/ThePerfectScore''.
** And then there's ''Film/UnderTheSkin,'' which according to [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/race/telluride-under-skin-starring-scarlett-618843 at least one reviewer]] may wind up becoming BestKnownForTheFanservice.
* GenderFlip: The character she voices in ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'' is Kaa, who was originally male in both the Rudyard Kipling book and the animated Disney movie.
* GoingCommando: According to her, the SpyCatsuit for ''The Avengers'' was so tight, she ended up having to do this to be comfortable.
* 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''.
* ThoseTwoActors:
** Starred with Creator/ChrisEvans in six films: ''Film/ThePerfectScore'', ''Film/TheNannyDiaries'', ''Film/TheAvengers'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', and ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''.
** She also made two movies with Creator/EvaMendes, ''My Brother The Pig'' and ''Film/TheSpirit''.
** She turns up alongside Creator/SamuelLJackson fairly frequently, too. ''Film/TheSpirit'' and ''Film/TheAvengers'', for starters.
* VocalDissonance: Has a surprisingly deep and husky voice.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Apparently, she insisted on going topless in ''Film/TheIsland'' but director Michael Bay wouldn't let her.
