Scarlett Johansson Named Hollywood’s Highest-Grossing Actress of All Time

Scarlett Johansson is queen of the box office.

The actress’ movies, which include the “Avengers” franchise, have raked in a record-breaking $3.3 billion at the North American box office, according to Box Office Mojo.

The tracking site ranks Johansson 10th overall, beating out male stars like Robert De Niro, Matt Damon and action-movie favorites Bruce Willis and Liam Neeson.

This year alone, her films “The Jungle Book” and “Captain America: Civil War” have grossed $358.4 million and $404.3 million respectively at the domestic box office. Her highest grossing movie is “The Avengers,” which is also the fifth highest grossing movie of all time in the United States, with $623.4 million.

At 31, she is the youngest actor appearing in the top 10, but she’s also the only woman. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Johansson spoke about the Hollywood gender wage gap.

“There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole,” Johansson told the magazine. “I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage… I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”

The next highest grossing actress is Cameron Diaz, who comes in at the 19th spot on the list. Her movies, which include the highly successful “Shrek” franchise, have grossed $3 billion, not far behind Johansson.

Harrison Ford holds the top spot. His movies add up to $4.8 billion with the most recent “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as his most lucrative film.

Next up, Johansson will star in the anime adaptation of “Ghost in a Shell,” which has already received criticism for white-washed casting. She’ll also star in “Rock that Body.” Both are set for 2017.
