Scarlett Johansson is highest-grossing actress of all time

By Tribute on July 1, 2016 | 11 Comments

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Johansson has made history.

The Avengers star has grossed $3.3 billion at the box office at the age of 31, making her the youngest actress to appear on Box Office Mojo’s list of the highest-grossing actors and actresses.

Box Office Mojo ranks Scarlett Johansson 10th on their list. Her co-star Robert Downey Jr. comes in at number five having grossed around $4 billion. The number one spot goes to Harrison Ford, whose films have made roughly $5 billion at the box office.

Both Robert and Scarlett share The Avengers as their highest-grossing film, while Harrison Ford’s highest-grossing film is (unsurprisingly) Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Cameron Diaz is the second-highest grossing actress. She has grossed $3 billion and is 19th on the list. Her highest grossing film is Shrek 2.

Are you happy for Scarlett, or are you more concerned about the lack of women on the list? Let us know in the comments below. ~ Yanis Khamsi

    I just don’t see the attraction. Personality wise she seems to be an okay actor, but she’s not that pretty really.

    Ford really hit his stride with Cowboys & Aliens.

    Johansson’s films have grossed 3.3 billion at the box office. Will this silence the shrill caw of the feminists? You bet your ass it won’t!

    And neither it should Bob71….

    Something should, Kris.

    At least it wasn’t Jennifer Lawrence who set the record!

    You do know what century this is right Bob? Are you the missing link??

    I am well aware of what year it is, Kris; and if anything, I represent an advancement in evolution. Your insult is not only puerile, it’s decades old. Get with the modern age or seek out the nearest tarpit.

    Huh. And people wonder why women like myself don’t identify as “feminist.” Modern feminism clings to an identity based on victimization and an ideology seeded in misandry. Feminism, having hit a wall, is stuck in a mire of its own making. It is no longer needed (at least in the western world.)

    I know how you feel, Ellie; I feel the same. But there’s a national energy crisis that demands we all rise above our private, selfish interests…

    Your easy Bob…..
