Scarlette Johnson Latest Glamorous Pictures Gallery
Scarlett Johansson is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. Johansson subsequently starred in Manny & Lo in 1996, and garnered further acclaim and prominence with roles in The Horse Whisperer and Ghost World.
She is a native New Yorker, born on November 22, 1984, to Karsten Johansson, a Danish architect, and Melanie Johansson, a homemaker who would one day become her famous daughter’s manager. Scarlett and her twin brother, Hunter (who is younger by three minutes), have an older sister, Vanessa, who is also an actress, and an older brother Adrian. When Scarlett was about seven a friend of her mother’s suggested that the young Johanssons would be perfect for commercials, so Melanie packed up the whole family and took them on the round of casting calls. For Johansson it was a completely overwhelming experience. “It was like being in a beauty pageant,” she told Polly Vernon of the Guardian Unlimited. “The other moms were really scary, and it was awful.”
But the tough little New Yorker was not discouraged even when casting agents expressed interest in her brother Adrian and not her because Johansson knew that, more than anything else, she wanted to be an actress. “I have always been a big ham,” she went on to tell Vernon. “It’s like I hopped out of the womb and said: I will perform!” In fact, even before auditioning for commercials, Johansson would put on shows for her family and charge them each a dollar to watch. The budding actress’s career was officially launched in 1993.
