Scarlett Johansson (November 22, 1984-) is an American-born actress of Danish descent. She started acting at a young age, including a debut in North (hey, she was Paying Her Dues), then later got attention for roles in The Horse Whisperer and Ghost World. She then broke through in 2003 with the film adaptation of the book Girl with a Pearl Earring, and Lost in Translation; she won a BAFTA for the latter. She is Jewish and has developed a close working relationship with Woody Allen, appearing in major roles in three of his films.Today, she is considered one of the most beautiful actresses in Hollywood, with her almost-exotic face, gorgeous eyes, her voice, and her huge... tracts of land. She also won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2010 revival of A View from the Bridge.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).She's also Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.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.
