Scarlett Johansson Just Became The Highest Grossing Actress of All Time

Scarlett Johansson is crushing records left and right.

The “Avengers” star has just been dubbed the highest grossing female film actress of all time, coming in at number 10 in Box Office Mojo’s list of Hollywood’s highest grossing actors.

Tipped over by the Marvel superhero blockbusters, Johansson, 31, has seen her films gross over $3.3 billion, is the only woman in the top 10 list and is 20 years younger than her male counterparts. Not bad at all!

The next closest woman on the list is Cameron Diaz, who came in at number 19, Helena Bonham Carter at 26 and Julia Roberts at 30. And topping the list was Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford, with a whopping gross of $4.8 billion.

For her upcoming projects, Johansson will carry on solo for her own Black Widow movie, as well as an R-rated female-centric comedy “Rock That Body,” and a biopic of Zelda Fitzgerald, “Great Gatsby” F. Scott Fitzgerald author’s wife.
