Johansson’s range on screen is also impressive.
She scores whether she’s playing a superhero in summer blockbusters like “The Avengers and “Iron Man 2,” or more delectable roles in indie films like “Vicky Christina Barcelona” and “Hitchcock.”
She can also play more wholesome roles like her turn in “We Bought a Zoo,” and shows off her comedic flair in her most recent role as a gum-cracking jersey girl in the romantic comedy, “Don Jon,” with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

She’s also one of Hollywood’s more understated sex sirens. She’s never posed nude in a movie, although some nude “selfies” surfaced in 2011 that were unearthed by a hacker, who was later arrested and convicted.
She said the photos were only meant for then-husband Ryan Reynolds. She took them in a hotel room during a long period of separation while both were working.
“There’s nothing wrong with that,” she said at the time. “It’s not like I was shooting a porno… Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.” she said.
She divorced Reynolds the same year and saw her life turned upside down in the tabloids. “Of course it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you,” she said.
She’s been quietly dating French journalist Romain Dauriac, and revealed her engagement just last month.
She was also stunning last month in an Altier Versace gown at the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new idie movie “Under the Skin.” She plays an alien, another off-beat indie role, the kind she seems to relish.
But the 28-year-old actress, who almost spilled out of her off-the-shoulder black dress at the Festival, talks about how she has to hustle to stay on top of her game in Hollywood.
“I gotta hustle,” she says. “I’m a twenty-eight-year-old woman in the movie business. Pretty soon the roles you’re offered all become mothers. Then they just sort of stop.
“I have to hedge against that with work — theater, producing, this thing with Esquire,” she says.
Johansson has a long way to go before she hits that plateau. This is the second time she’s been honored by the magazine. She also won the title in 2006.
