Five Things You Didn’t Know about Scarlett Johansson

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" - UK Film Premiere - Red Carpet Arrivals

Scarlett Johansson is one of the most-famous actresses in the world. Her fame is just as much a product of her beauty icon status as it is her acting portfolio. ScarJo has been in close to 40 movies with some of those roles earning her recognition for her efforts. At 29, she’s been in the industry since she was 8-years old and there are no signs of her slowing down any time soon. Those are the basics of Johansson. Something else you might know about her acting career is that she’s been nominated for a Golden Globe Award four times without winning.  How about some things you might not know about ScarJo?

Home Alone 3?

Scarlett’s big break came in the 1998 film The Horse Whisperer directed by Robert Redford. Her performance earned her award for Most Promising Actress. However, right before she featured in that film she joined the Home Alone franchise in a small role as Molly Pruitt. Sadly, Home Alone 3 was the worst Home Alone movie of the bunch and Macauley Culkin wasn’t in it.

She’s the Inspiration behind Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed a Girl’

What you may not know is that aside from her own small music career (she’s released two albums), she was the inspiration behind one of Katy Perry’s most-famous songs. ‘I Kissed a Girl’ was written after Perry became fixated on ScarJo’s lips. That works.

She Helps Her Friends With Dermatology Advice

It’s easy to think that beauty just comes natural to Johansson. That’s not necessarily true. She’s had a host of skin issues to deal with and has spent hours watching documentaries on dermatology. She’s well-versed in the subject and offers advice to her friends in need. Another little interesting fact is she washes her face with apple cider vinegar to prevent pimples.

Lindsay Lohan Beat Her Out

If you were to look at the career projections for Lindsay Lohan (28) and Scarlett Johansson (29) you’d probably think they’d be in vastly different positions today. Lohan beat out ScarJo for a major role in the 1998 movie Parent Trap, which became a wild success for Lohan. Despite the loss, Scarlett has rebounded nicely hasn’t she?

Twin Brother Hunter

ScarJo has an older sister, two older brothers, and a twin brother Hunter. Hunter is three minutes younger than her. Of those three minutes, ScarJo said in an interview they were “the best three minutes of her life” jokingly, of course. Hunter appeared alongside her in the movie Manny & Lo in 1998.
