Scarlett Johansson and why she’s an achiever through and through!
Scarlett Johansson was not born into a family which had a lot of money. She was the daughter of Melanie Sloan and Karsten Johansson. It was her mother who was a film enthusiast, and who put her into acting school at a very young age. Johansson was then taken to various auditions by her mother, and her first ever acting role came when she was nine. In 1994, she played a part in the movie North, which was a fantasy-based comedy. Her transition into adulthood came with Lost in Translation, and Girl with a Pearl Earring. Both these movies were made in 2003, and both saw the emergence of Scarlett Johansson as an actor, and as a woman. She got very good critical acclaim for both movies, and she managed to win the BAFTA as well as the Boston Society Film Critics Award for the former movie.
Scarlett Johansson went on to do many movies after that, and she not only grew as an actor, but also as a sex-symbol and as a woman who managed to charm and stun many men into silence. Woody Allen himself had commented that her presence in awe-worthy because of her strange mix of sexuality and witticism. She did Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Christina Barcelona for Woody Allen, and she went on to do a few super-hero movies as well. She played the famed Marvel character, the Black Widow, both in Iron-Man 2 and The Avengers. Her performance in The Other Boleyn Girl as well as Match Point, was very widely appreciated.
Scarlett Johansson is today, one of the biggest names in Hollywood, but what makes her truly appealing is her innate sense of being a very normal person, who is capable of loving, learning, falling and hurting. Scarlett Johansson is nothing like what you would expect a typical Hollywood Diva to be. Instead of staying cooped up somewhere, she loves to travel all over the world, instead of having an unapproachable air about herself, Johansson looks like she is completely grounded and very cordial. She has had many ups and downs in her personal life, but she is the kind of woman who has managed to take it all in her stride. She has talked about her personal life, but at the same time, she has respected her personal relationships and has therefore not divulged more than required.
Of late, her divorce from Ryan Reynolds has been the talk of town. The two had met in 2007, and by 2008, they got married. They purchased a house together in Los Angeles, and things were going great until the separation was announced in 2010. The divorce got finalized in 2011. This might have left Johansson broken and hurt, but instead of drawing unnecessary media attention towards herself, she decided to get up and walk away from the situation in order to re-build herself.
Johansson is now busy filming for new movies, and despite being the kind of person who is constantly in danger of being shelved off as a sex-symbol, and nothing more, Scarlett Johansson has proven herself and her talent time and again, only to emerge as a true fighter and an achiever.
