In the mid-2000s, when gossip stories about twenty-something actresses behaving badly dominated headlines, Scarlett Johansson was nowhere to be found. Johansson was certainly one of the most respected actresses of her generation, having made an impact in a number of roles as intriguing young muses to older men in crisis, but she preferred to limit her dramatic behavior to movie screens. For her physical allure and intelligence, the born-and-bred New Yorker was courted by creative filmmakers like Robert Redford, who gave her a breakout role in "The Horse Whisperer" (1998), the Coen Brothers, Frank Miller and Woody Allen, who cast her in his late-career hits "Match Point" (2005) and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008). Johansson's translucent skin, curvy figure and flair for distant melancholy made her well-suited for period dramas like "Girl with the Pearl Earring" (2003) and "The Other Boleyn Girl" (2008), but the versatile actress also connected with young adult audiences for personifying the complex modern woman in films like "Ghost World" (2001) and "Lost in Translation" (2003). Johansson's number of intellectual pursuits outside of Hollywood also suggested that the poised performer would still be going strong when others her age had long since burnt out.

Bonus Trivia


Describing her desire for a show business career, a three-year old Johansson reportedly told her mother that she "had a fire in [her] brain to act."


"I'm the kind of person that doesn't put up with bullsh*t. Does that make me uncommonly mature? I don't know. I think you mature with experiences, and how other people view you and your maturity really depends upon when you have those experiences. I think I was born with a great awareness of my surroundings and an awareness of other people. I know when I really connect with somebody and I know when I feel like I've known somebody before. And I absolutely know what it feels like to meet an old soul, to know an old soul. Maybe years from now, when I'm having my midlife crisis and need to find myself, I'll search deep down inside and find that old soul of mine and dust it off. But for now I'm enjoying getting to know all about my young soul." – Johansson on her perceived maturity to Interview magazine, July 2001


"I don't plan on selling out. I mean, it's nice getting a dinner reservation ahead of other people, but when it comes down to it, the most important thing to me is the actual work." – Johansson to Movieline's Hollywood Life, Feb. 2004


Johansson was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2004.


"People just don't type cast me. I've played so many different roles, from a high school student, to a wife, to a 17th-century Dutch maid, to trailer trash. For a while, I thought I might get typecast as the bitter, shitty teenager who's always sarcastic, but luckily that was a fear that was never a reality." – Johansson to Empire, March 2005


"I feel so fortunate to be able to work with directors whose movies my mother waited on line for two hours to see. Here I am, 20 years old, getting to work with all these people who are an inspiration to my generation and the generation before." – Johansson quoted to Interview, Nov. 2005


Johansson topped FHM magazine's list of the "100 Sexiest Women in the World" in April 2006.


"I can't stand those articles where people spill their life story. After a while I feel like I know more about them than their best friend does, and that's weird." – Johansson to InStyle magazine, Oct. 2006


In 2007 Johansson was named Woman of the Year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals.


"I actually started acting because I wanted to be in musicals when I was a little girl. That's where my dream career was going to be when I was 8 years old, like the young Cosette in 'Les Miserables.' Then I started making films and I never ended up doing musical theater. Of course, by the time I turned 13, I kind of buried that part of myself." – Johansson to, Aug. 27, 2007


On Sept. 14, 2011, naked photos taken by Johansson with a mobile phone were published on several Web sites. The actress contacted the FBI over the phone hacking. The alleged hacker, Christopher Chaney from Florida, was arrested by the FBI in October 2011. Johansson revealed in the December 2011 issue of Vanity Fair that she had taken the photos three years ago for her then-husband Ryan Reynolds. Chaney was sentenced to ten years in prison.


"I always feel I'm going to wind up as Erich von Stroheim to her Norma Desmond, as her chauffeur, writing her imaginary fan letters so her ego doesn't get deflated. I'll say I directed her in pictures when she was this international goddess, and now I'm just happy to be able to drive her car." – Woody Allen, who directed Johansson in "Match Point" (2005), "Scoop" (2006), and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008), quoted in Vanity Fair, December 2011


"I'm waiting for him to write my 'Citizen Kane.'" – Johansson on Woody Allen, quoted in Vanity Fair, December 2011
