Name: Scarlett Johansson
Birth Date: November 22, 1984
Birth Place: New York City, USA
| Born in New
York City on November 22nd, 1984, Scarlett Johansson
is the youngest of four siblings -- she has
an older brother and sister, as well as a twin
brother. As might be expected of an acting prodigy,
Scarlett had an unusually early interest in
performing: she wanted to be an actress since
age 3, and was acting professionally when she
was only 8 years old. After taking classes at
the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute for Young
People, Scarlett made her stage debut in the
early 1990s in the off-Broadway production of
Sophistry, alongside Ethan Hawke.
Scarlett Johansson's first film role came in
1994's North, starring Elijah Wood, another
child star survivor. The following year she
played Sean Connery's daughter in the thriller
Just Cause, and then in 1996, she appeared in
If Lucy Fell and Manny & Lo. For the latter
film, Scarlett was nominated for an Independent
Spirit Award for Best Actress in 1997. That
year she added Fall and Home Alone 3 to her
burgeoning list of credits.
In 1998, Scarlett's career reached new heights.
Cast as Grace MacLean, a young girl who suffers
a tragic equestrian accident in The Horse Whisperer,
Scarlett was generally acknowledged as the most
promising part of an otherwise unenthusiastically-received
film. The 13-year-old actress picked up a Hollywood
Reporter YoungStar Award for her work. Ironically,
Scarlett was given an "introducing..."
credit in The Horse Whisperer, even though she
already had a half-dozen movies under her belt
The next year she turned heads once again in
a provocative role in the Coen brothers' The
Man Who Wasn't There. Also in 2001, Scarlett
starred in An American Rhapsody, a Hungarian
film about a girl who escapes from behind the
iron curtain in the 1950s. Such serious fare
was offset in 2002, with Scarlett's turn in
the B-monster movie, Eight Legged Freaks.
But 2003 would prove to be Scarlett's most successful
year yet. She starred in Sofia Coppola's Lost
in Translation as a young girl staying in Japan,
who befriends a washed-up American actor, played
by Bill Murray. Scarlett followed Lost in Translation
with Girl with a Pearl Earring, in which she
played the title role; a struggling servant
girl who becomes drawn into the world of Dutch
painter Johannes Vermeer. Both roles landed
Scarlett Best Actress Golden Globe nominations
in 2004, as well as a Best Actress BAFTA Award
(British Academy of Film and Television Arts)
for Lost in Translation.
With the 2004 teen comedy The Perfect Score,
Johansson has demonstrated once more that she
can take on lighter fare as well as serious
roles. But she's used to dichotomy: Scarlett
divides her time between New York, where her
father lives, and Los Angeles, where her mother
looks after her business interests.
Oscar winning director Woody Allen is intimidated
by Scarlett Johansson and says she is 'sexually
Allen says it is impossible to concentrate when
Johansson is around, reports contactmusic.com.
He says, 'It's very hard to be extra witty around
a sexually overwhelming, beautiful young woman
who is wittier than you are. Any time I say
anything amusing, Scarlett tops me.'
Director Woody Allen says he thinks Scarlett
Johansson is "sexually overwhelming."
The two met and hit it off well on the set of
their latest movie 'Match Point'. Johansson
adds that she was surprised to find that Allen
is 'actually very sweet, thoughtful and romantic,
in his own strange way'.
Johansson, who also stars as a student journalist
working at a university paper in Allen's forthcoming
comedy Scoop, said she thinks of Allen the way
Marilyn Monroe thought of Billy Wilder.
"It's our shtick,¡± she explained,
adding Allen was "actually very sweet and
thoughtful and romantic, in his own strange
