Scarlett Johansson named highest-grossing female film star of all time

By WITW Staff on June 30, 2016

Scarlett Johansson has been named as the 10th highest-grossing movie star of all time, according to Box Office Mojo, and is the only woman to appear in the top 10 on the list. The 31-year-old has appeared in films that have pulled in $3.3 billion across her career in the U.S. alone, and she’s managed all that in spite of being a good 20 years younger than her top-10 peers.

Johansson is trailed by heavy hitters Matt Damon and Will Smith, and way outplayed the closest woman on the list, Cameron Diaz, who came in at number 19. Helena Bonham Carter, 50, is number 26; Cate Blanchett, 47, appears at 29, and 48-year-old Julia Roberts comes in at 30.

2016 has seen Johansson star in two box-office hits: Captain America: Civil War and The Jungle Book.
