Why is Scarlett Johansson Famous

Scarlett Johansson is a famous actress. She’s played varied roles and won awards, but her first big break came playing opposite Robert Redford in “The Horse Whisperer.”

Scarlett Johansson Brief History

This beautiful model and actress have become a household name for both her acting chops and her beauty.

As of 2018, she was also listed as the world’s highest-paid actress! With multiple nominations and awards, Scarlett Johansson made it clear she was here to stay and wouldn’t be a flash in the pan.

With a list of movies the length of my arm, she proved she was also cut out for Broadway and earned a Tony while at it. She was married twice and is the mother to one. One husband was the popular Ryan Reynolds, though he didn’t father her child.

While she’d played in multiple different roles, it was her turn in The Horse Whisperer that truly set her star soaring. Unfortunately, a string of small movies after that didn’t do her any favors.

Though, as she grew into an adult, things changed. Soon she was cast in movies like Girl with a Pearl Earring, worked with Woody Allen, and Lost in Translation. She was suddenly seen as this massively versatile actress, and the rest is history.

She’s become part of the Marvel franchise of movies and became a fan favorite. Her role as the Black Widow put her into Avenger movies and kept her on the screen.

She’s strived for a musical career and released a few albums along the way, but never met critical success as she had with her movies.
