Pretty awesome news, right? Here’s to hoping Scarlett continues to maintain the very fine balance between quality and quantity.
VOGUE – Leave it to ScarJo to break up the boy’s club: The Avengers actress is now the 10th highest grossing movie star of all time. The rest of the top 10 is—you guessed it!—made up of male actors, which means that Scarlett Johansson may be the first female to earn a spot on the coveted list.
While her films’ earnings ($3.3 billion) trail behind her male colleagues, the 31-year-old actress is significantly younger than the rest (the list is comprised of Hollywood’s elder statesmen, including Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, and Tom Hanks). While Johansson’s newfound top-10 status is worth celebrating, the male-to-female breakdown is still terribly lopsided; Cameron Diaz, who came in at number 19, is Johansson’s closest competitor.
Last year, Jennifer Lawrence earned the top spot as Hollywood’s highest-paid actress, raking in $52 million pretax over 12 months. Johansson came in as the runner-up, earning $16 million less than Lawrence. Let’s hope the scales continue to tip in the coming year. Here’s to (relative) progress!
At long last, we have our first photos of Scarlett at an event this year! She has of course been very busy over the past few months with the filming of Ghost in the Shell in New Zealand and Hong Kong–so it’s nice to see her again, and looking as beautiful as ever. She was in attendance at the event on Monday night in her beloved New York City, which celebrated the life and career of Tony Bennett-who was awared The Entertainment Icon Award.

I have added screen captures from the Blu-ray edition of Hail, Caesar! to the gallery–including bonus features. Unfortunately, Scarlett’s role in the film is very small (she has just two scenes), so if you’re thinking of watching it solely for her, you’ll probably be a little underwhelmed by the size of her part. However, she is very funny and memorable as DeeAnna Moran, once again proving that she’s very capable of portraying comedic characters (she looks great doing it, too).
