When you think of actresses in big movies, who’ve won lots of awards, with long careers, you would probably think one of them would be the highest grossing actress of all time. Most people would probably go with a Sandra Bullock, or a Meryl Streep or Susan Sarandon. But it’s 31 year old Scarlett Johansson who beats them all out according to Box Office Mojo.

Box Office Mojo released their list yesterday, exploring the top actors and actresses who have made more money at the box office than anyone else. Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp top the actors list, which would be easily guessed by even the most casual of movie fans. Scarlett Johansson on the other hand wouldn’t probably be in most people’s top five list for actresses, let alone the top of the list.

Over all, Johansson ranks number 10 on the list, with fellow female celebrities Cameron Diaz sitting at 19, followed by Helena Bonham Carter at 26, Cate Blanchett at 29, Julia Roberts at 30, Elizabeth Banks at 31, Emma Watson at 32 and Anne Hathaway at 50. Johansson also earns the distinction of being the youngest actor in the top ten.

If you take a look at Johansson’s career it’s not overly surprising she is at the top of the list though. After all she’s been in five Marvel films, including the two Avenger’s movies that rank in the ten highest grossing movies of all time. She’s also starred in such hit movies as this year’s The Jungle Book, We Bought A Zoo, He’s Just Not That into You and Lucy.
