Scarlett Johansson becomes the only actress to make it to the top 10 list of the highest grossing actor.

Being an evil fighting bad-ass Avenger has to have its perks. Other than being one of the most loved characters of all time, Scarlett Johansson has also now become the highest grossing actress of all time.

She is the only actress to be in the top 10 of the Highest Grossing Actors list with her making over $3.3bn in the US alone. The 31 years old actress is 20 years younger than any of her fellow actors in the Top 10 list according to Box Office Mojo.

Her role as the Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in addition to her role as Lucy in the movie of the same title with $126.7 million along with this year’s Captain America Civil War with $404.3 million and The Jungle Book with $358.4 million have led her to claim her spot in the Top 10. 

She is the only female actress that is in the list. Her closest competition is Cameron Diaz at no. 19. That goes down the list all the way to Helena Bonham Carter at 26, Cate Blanchett at 29 and Julia Roberts at 30, Elizabeth Banks 31, Emma Watson coming in at 32 while Anne Hathaway, comes in at 50. Scarlett’s net gross also places her over the actors such as Matt Damon, Liam Neeson and Will Smith.

Harrison Ford managed to get the number one spot over Samuel L. Jackson with his Star Wars payday last year. Other actors joining Scarlett on the Top 10 list include, Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp and Michael Caine. 

Scarlett has been a part of addressing the wage gap between male and female actors. She said that she is earning well and she could not apply the criticism on her own experience.

Scarlett will be seen in more movies soon. Her upcoming films include a voice role in animated comedy Sing, more action in anime adaptation Ghost in the Shell and comedy Rock That Body. She’s also set to star in her own standalone Black Widow film for Marvel as well as a biopic of Zelda Fitzgerald.
