I’m so tired of hearing casting directors ask if I have a sore throat #Scarlet

Johansson began acting during childhood, after her mother started taking her to auditions. She made her professional acting debut at the age of eight in the off-Broadway production of “Sophistry” with Ethan Hawke, at New York’s Playwrights Horizons. She would audition for commercials but took rejection so hard her mother began limiting her to film tryouts. She made her film debut at the age of nine, as John Ritter’s character’s daughter in the fantasy comedy North (1994). Following minor roles in Just Cause (1995), as the daughter of Sean Connery and Kate Capshaw’s character, and If Lucy Fell (1996), she played the role of Amanda in Manny & Lo (1996). 

Here are some amusing facts about this lovely lady. 

Shortly after Lost in Translation (2003) was released, she said she had a connection to older men and could not see herself dating anyone under 30. True to her word, she had a relationship with actor Benicio Del Toro, who is 17 years her senior.

Scarlett’s mother, Melanie Sloan, who is from the Bronx, is from an Ashkenazi Jewish family (from Poland, Belarus and Russia). Scarlett’s father, Karsten Johansson, is Danish (his own paternal grandfather was Swedish, while his other family is Danish).

Applied to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts for the fall 2003 semester, but was not accepted. The rejection allowed her to focus on her career, which blossomed soon after.

She is three minutes older than her twin brother Hunter Johansson. She says these three minutes are the most important in her life.

Ranked #9 in the 2005 FHM list of “100 Sexiest Women in the World”. And was also the highest ranking new entry to the list.

Director Sofia Coppola directed both Scarlett and her boyfriend Josh Hartnett, but not in the same movie. Scarlett was in Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003) and Hartnett starred in The Virgin Suicides (1999). 

The Looney Tunes Show (2011) created a character called Starlet Johansson in The Looney Tunes Show: Casa de Calma (2011) who resembles her.

Very close friends with her co-star, Chris Evans, with whom she has appeared in nine films: The Perfect Score (2004), The Nanny Diaries (2007), The Avengers (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).

Scarlett is the 12th person to be nominated for two Oscars in the acting category the same year, none of them won both, seven of them won at least one and five of them lost both. All five who lost are actresses. Scarlett is one of the five.
