The Black Widow depicter in Marvel Cinematic Universe is the only female in the top 10 highest-grossing movie stars of all time.
Scarlett Johansson has landed on the list of ten top-grossing movie stars of all time. On June 29, the list of Hollywood’s top-grossing actors was updated by Box Office Mojo. Johansson is tenth on the list with $3.33 billion domestically. The 31-year-old actress is also the youngest on the list by 20 years.
“Johansson has perfectly and seamlessly balanced her impressive career with indie films,” movie business analyst Paul Dergarabedian told TheWrap, “Working with noted filmmakers like Luc Besson, Christopher Nolan, the Coen Brothers and Woody Allen and she tops it off by starring in major Marvel powered box office blockbusters and other popular films, most recently ‘The Jungle Book’. Add it all up and Johansson’s career diversification plan has delivered huge overall returns at the box office and thus catapults her to among the highest grossing stars working today.”
The first place on the list is taken by Harrison Ford with $4.9 billion. The 73-year-old actor latest project is “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Next on the list is Samuel L. Jackson with $4.7 billion. He took part in “The Avengers” as Nick Fury.
