Born: November 22, 1984, New York City, New York - USA

Scarlett Johansson is an American actress, model, and singer.

She made her film debut in “North” (1994) and was later nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in “Manny & Lo” (1996), garnering further acclaim and prominence with roles in “The Horse Whisperer” (1998) and “Ghost World” (2001).

She shifted to adult roles with her performances in “Girl with a Pearl Earring” (2003) and Sofia Coppola's “Lost in Translation” (2003), for which she won a BAFTA award for Best Actress in a Leading Role; both films earned her Golden Globe Award nominations as well.

A role in “A Love Song for Bobby Long” (2004) earned Johansson her third Golden Globe for Best Actress nomination. Johansson garnered another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Woody Allen's “Match Point” (2005).

She has played the Marvel comic book character Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff in “Iron Man 2” (2010), “The Avengers” (2012), and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014) and reprised the role in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015). In 2018, she will star in “Avengers: Infinity War”.

The 2010 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's “A View From the Bridge” won Johansson the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play.

As a singer, Johansson has released two albums, Anywhere I Lay My Head and Break Up.

Johansson is considered one of Hollywood's modern sex symbols, and has frequently appeared in published lists of the sexiest women in the world, most notably when she was named the “Sexiest Woman Alive” by Esquire magazine in both 2006 and 2013 (the only woman to be chosen for the title twice), and the “Sexiest Celebrity” by Playboy magazine in 2007.

Johansson was born in New York City. Her father, Karsten Johansson, is a Danish-born architect, and her paternal grandfather, Ejner Johansson, was a screenwriter and director. Her mother, Melanie Sloan, a producer, comes from an Ashkenazi Jewish family from the Bronx.

Johansson has an older sister, Vanessa, who is an actress; an older brother, Adrian; a twin brother, Hunter (who appeared in the film Manny & Lo with Scarlett); and a half-brother, Christian, from her father's re-marriage.

The actress was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds and recently announced her separation from second husband Romain Dauriac. Johanssen and Dauriac have one daughter together, Rose Dorothy Dauriac.
