Scarlett Johansson in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”

Scarlett Johansson is one of the more rare female actresses of Young Hollywood, namely because she’s a deadly double act of beauty and talent. And despite her unique look and ravishing voice, it’s her incredible talent and maturity that makes her stand out among the other upcoming bombshells in the industry. Born in New York in 1984, Scarlett had aspirations to be an actor since age three, and was already acting professionally five years later when she enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute for Young People. Scarlett’s child star work isn’t very well known, but the stars she performed with are, including Elijah Wood and Sean Connery. She was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award at the age of thirteen, but it was her appearance in the Robert Redford-directed “The Horse Whisperer” one year later that earned her the credit she deserved.

Scarlett has really pushed her way on to the red carpet since then, thanks mostly to the numerous independent features she has been a part of over the past five years. Her first major indie had the blossoming actress sharing the screen with Thora Birch in 2000 with the graphic-novel-adapted “Ghost World,” before taking the time to indulge in a little camp with the B-movie horror flick “Eight Legged Freaks.” But it was in 2003 when Scarlett experienced her greatest success with dual Golden Globe nominations for her roles in Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation” and “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” This set to become one of the future stars of Hollywood as we expected, and she was able to do it while avoiding a Michael Bay picture that could have killed her reputation.

Scarlett’s Sexiest Roles

Every Scarlett fan rejoiced with the release of “Under the Skin” in 2014. Scarlett’s epic, full frontal (and back and side) nude scene easily qualifies as her sexiest role as she showed off her beautiful curves. She’s obviously looked amazing in countless other movies as well. We loved her in “Vicky Christina Barcelona” (see the link below).

Scarlett Says

On her voice:
“I’m so tired of hearing casting directors ask if I have a sore throat. The people who have told me that my voice is distinctive, it’s unusual, those people have always been close to my heart.”

On fast food:
“I don’t go to McDonald’s anymore. After I saw ‘Super Size Me’… no way!”
