Scarlett Johansson, 34, is one of the most popular actresses today, and the number of her fans is growing every day. She’s definitely someone to be fond of – and these facts will make fall in love with her even more tenderly.
1. Rejected for beauty
When Scarlett was auditioning for The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, she was rejected for the weirdest reason: “too beautiful”.
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan
When girls are often infatuated with Disney princesses and cute animals like kittens, little Scarlett’s tastes were more specific: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was her favorite show, and she rarely missed a new episode.
3. Adult Disney fan
Today, Scarlett seems to be catching up with what she missed back then: she adores the movie Frozen and celebrated her 20th birthday in Disneyland.
4. Muse to amuse artists…
The actress has inspired many for fan arts and fiction. For example, an Italian painter Francesco Clemente pictured her as Queen of Swords in his Tarot deck.
5. …and musicians
There have been many theories about who inspired beautiful Katy Perry for her hit “I Kissed a Girl”. As the singer confessed, she was looking through a Steppin’ Out issue and happened across an interview with Johansson; Perry told her boyfriend she’d make out with the actress if she came in at the moment.
6. Cordial philanthropist
Charity and social activism are significant parts of Scarlett Johansson’s life. She donated $5 million to children in hospitals along with her Avengers colleagues when Endgame was announced; other projects include the Time’s Up movement and fundraising for the Hurricane Maria victims.
7. Music talent
Scarlett’s singing abilities are no less impressive than her drama skills. In 2013, she performed “Before My Time” for the Chasing Ice movie and received the Academy Awards nomination for Best Original Song.
8. Dog person
The actress has three fur kids: a cat Trooper, a chihuahua Maggie, and a dachshund- chihuahua mix Pancake. She is not one of those owners who allow their pets anything, but her love for them is deep and mutual.
9. Captain America’s friend
Natasha Romanoff and Steve Rogers are good friends in the superhero franchise, and so are the actors. Before the project, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans collaborated in The Perfect Score and The Nanny Diaries.
10. Nickname? No, thanks
The media often nickname the artist ScarJo, but she keeps saying she hates it for its rough, violent sounding.
