Scarlett Johansson, who has been described by The Times as a “reluctant sex symbol,” can be easily found on any list of attractive Hollywood stars. The first woman to be crowned Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive” twice, Johansson has also been featured as one of People’s “Most Beautiful” multiple times throughout her career.
She’s undeniably gorgeous, sure — but if you think Johansson achieved international superstar success by relying on her appearance, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Johansson has proved time and time again that she’s a force to be reckoned with. The Avengers: Infinity War star expertly tackled Marvel’s physically demanding Black Widow role with skill and confidence.
She broke our hearts with only the sound of her voice in Her. And don’t forget her critically acclaimed performance in Lost in Translation
There’s a lot to be learned about Johansson from her incredible career — most importantly, perhaps, is that the multitalented star is so much more than a pretty face.
There’s no question that Scarlett Johansson is blessed with some seriously killer genes — and not just in the looks department. Believe it or not, the mega-talent comes from a family of — you guessed it — mega talents.
The daughter of an architect and an aspiring actress, Johansson and her three siblings were raised in a home where cinema was a staple. Her mother, Melanie Sloan, fed the children a steady diet of classic films.
