Scarlett Johansson named highest grossing actress
Johansson made history by raking in $3.3 billion (£2,9 billion) at the domestic box office over the course of her career. According to Box Office Mojo, this makes her the 10th highest earning actor, male or female, in Hollywood. At 31, this also makes her the youngest person to be in the top 10 and the highest grossing female actress.
Earlier this year she stated: "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.”
Johansson is known for playing Black Widow in five Marvel movies, starred in Hail, Ceasar! and most recently voiced Kaa in The Jungle Book.
