15 Scarlett Johansson Facts That Will Make You Love Her Even More
Scarlett Johansson is entrancing, smart and cool. Here are 15 facts that are going to take that love for the ScarJo and kick it up a notch.
“Manny And Lo”
Her big break came in the movie “North” but then she soon was in “Manny And Lo” in 1996. Yeah, this ain’t her first time at the rodeo.
She’s released two albums, “Anywhere I Lay My Head” and “Break Up.” “Break Up” is a collab with Pete Yorn, which makes sense since that’s her music manager’s brother.
She’s been voted as the world’s sexiest woman alive twice by Esquire. She’s the only woman to have won twice, both in 2006 and again in 2013.
Growing Up Artistic
Her family is artistic in nature; father Karsten Johansson, is an architect and her mother, Melanie Sloan, is a producer and self-titled “film buff.” Mom Melanie took her to all her auditions when she was first starting out.
People petitioned to get her removed from the project “Ghost In The Shell,” claiming it whitewashed the source material.
8 Was Great
She made her off-Broadway debut opposite Ethan Hawke in “Sophistry.” By 2010, she had won a Tony for Best Performance of a Featured Actress In A Play.
Don’t Call Her ScarJo
She hates the nickname, and calls it “flippant.”
Too Much For Woody
Woody Allen called Johansson “sexually overwhelming” while shooting “Match Point.”
In 2005, she helped raise money for charity Oxfam, with a bidder coughing up 20,000 pounds on an eBay auction to get a hair and makeup treatment, tickets, and a 20 minute “date” with Scarlett on the way to the “He’s Just Not That Into You” premiere.
A Little Of Both
What does she celebrate on the holidays? Well, while she identifies as Jewish, she says that she actually celebrates a little of both Christmas and Hanukkah.
10 Years In Jail
Hacking and publishing nude phone pics of Scarlett got Christopher Chaney 10 years in jail in 2011. The FBI helped catch the criminal.
A View From The Bridge
While this is a screen capture from film “An American Rhapsody” by Eva Gardos, the phrase “A View From The Bridge” means a lot to Scarlett. It’s how she won her Tony award in 2010.
Bank On “Lucy”
She made serious bank for the movie “Lucy.” The Luc Besson hit grossed $458 million, ten times its budget of $40 million. #ReasonsWhyShesAList
Many Faced Girl
Johansson has been the face for many brands: Calvin Klein, L’Oréal, Louis Vuitton, Mango, Dolce & Gabbana, Moët & Chandon, even Sodastream.
She’s Gaga For Nolan
She said of working with Christopher Nolan on “The Prestige,” “I loved working with [him]. He’s incredibly focused and driven and involved, and really involved in the performance in every aspect. He’s incredible to watch.” Well, we’re sure he thinks the same of this entrancing lady! Kudos, ScarJo– oops!–Scarlett.
