Forget what you know: Scarlett Johansson is the world’s highest-grossing actress of all time, and the 10th highest grossing actor.
According to Box Office Mojo, the 31-year-old’s films have grossed more than any other woman, the heftiest being Marvel’s The Avengers ranking in at more than $600,000,000.
Placing second on the list of females is Cameron Diaz at number 19 while Michael Caine, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, Eddie Murphy, Robert Downey, Jr., Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Harrison Ford inhabit the 9 positions above Johansson.
The Avengers franchise and subsequent Marvel films notwithstanding, Disney’s live-action Jungle Book is the second highest-grossing project of Johansson’s career, despite the fact that her “appearance” (a voice-over for the hypnotizing Kaa) was relatively brief.
Still, this is a huge milestone in Johansson’s career.
