Scarlett Johansson: the best photos of the beginnings of a unique actress

Few girl actresses have passed into adolescence without losing their minds or creating a scandal as Scarlett Johansson did in her day (New York, 1984). Some say it is due to her reserved nature, self-assurance, and above-average intelligence that has been praised even by Woody Allen. Because with that strawberry face and a body full of curves, any other woman in her skin would have ended up like a broken toy. She does not. At 36 she is not only an extremely beautiful performer. It is also one of the most creditworthy in Hollywood. Her name on the bill is synonymous with success and when she raises her voice, even if she doesn’t always say what people expect, she is always respected. That Scarlett is today one of the main figures in this eventful industry is due to her mother, Melanie Sloan, a Russian-born film producer, whose obsession with the industry turned on her daughter since she was little. Even his name is from a movie by gone With the Wind. She explains it like this: “I was lucky and, although I was involved in different typical teenage situations, I was able to be very discreet. He didn’t have a flashy lifestyle either, maybe that helped. “

Let’s review those early years as an actress. The first time he appeared on the big screen, he was 10 years old. It was in the movie A boy named North, a children’s comedy starring Bruce Willis and Elijah Wood that garnered six nominations for the Razzie Awards, the dreaded accolades that highlight the worst jobs of the year. At 12 he got his first leading role in Manny and Lo, an orphan drama that passed without pain or glory, and a year later was part of the poster of Home alone 3, an infumable sequel. From there he landed in the tear film The man who whispered to the horses, signed by Robert Redford, and later co-starred with Thora Birch in the independent film Ghost World that put her on the map. The awards were taken by his partner, but she was up to the task. 2003 was the year of his takeoff with two films that earned him his first Golden Globe nominations: The girl of the pearl, alongside Colin Firth, and Lost in Translationby Sofía Coppola. For the latter he won the BAFTA. He was not yet 19.

Under the spotlight and in full view, Scarlett has grown up and worked with almost all the great directors (Woody Allen, Brian de Palma, Christopher Nolan …) and has starred in cult films such as Under the skin, Her O Isle of dogs. But he has also managed to combine his indie career with big blockbusters in the service of Marvel. She debuted in the role of Black Widow in 2010 with Iron Man. Repeated in The avengerss (2012), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Captain Marvel (2019) and Avengers: Endgame (2019). And this Friday, July 9, Black widow, the first film starring her famous character, Natasha Romanoff, after 11 years devoted to the cause. Do not expect the resurrection of the Russian spy, but the journey to the past through the life of a woman that Scarlett herself defines as a feminist: “This film reflects what is happening in relation to the Time’s Up movement and the #MeeToo. It would be a shame if we didn’t address those things. It has been important for Cate Shortland (the director) to make a film about women helping other women who are in a difficult situation to lift themselves up. Someone asked me if Natasha was a feminist. Of course it is, obviously.

With a fortune valued at 140 million euros, thanks in part to these latest commercial film titles, Johansson has also starred in two films last year for which he has won two Oscar nominations for the first time in his career: Story of a marriage, with Adam Driver, and Jojo Rabbit, under the command of Taika Waititi. It is clear that the actress does not lose ground when it comes to quality cinema. And while, there it continues to look palm heart without anyone coughing it. By the way, Esquire has twice named her the sexiest woman in the world. Yes, we have good taste. And when someone reminds her, she, smarter than hunger, answers: “Yes, I am the first woman to get it twice because, at 28, I had to take advantage of those opportunities, right?”
