The 4,000 square-foot property is said to have 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a swimming pool, an elevated brick patio, a cabana house, and an exciting yet relaxing view of the Hudson River.
The LA House
It was around 2014, back when she’s still married to Romain Dauriac when Scarlett purchased a property in LA for the amount of $3.88 million. The purchase was discreetly made to avoid attention. According to Architectural Digest, the 3,500 square foot house contains 4 bedrooms, 2 half bathrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a fireplace, a fitted walk-in closet, a step-out balcony, a built-in grill, small outside dining area, a cabana, a large pool, and an 8-person spa.

Scarlett Johansson’s Cars
The actress is not known to drive around luxurious cars but that doesn’t mean she won’t have any taste in her vehicle’s quality. Scarlett is mostly seen driving her Toyota Prius ($25,000) regularly. She also has 2 more cars in her space: a $55,000 Mercedes E-Class and a $50,000 BMW Z4.

Aside from being an ambassador for Oxfam, she has also donated a huge amount of money to other welfare organizations such as Feeding America, Not On Our Watch, American Humane Society, Aid Still Required, and Cancer Research UK.
The Black Widow Appearance
Being branded as one of the most beautiful faces in entertainment and considered one of the sex symbols within Hollywood doesn’t come cheap. Johansson is pretty much open on how she maintains her attractiveness and doesn’t shy away from spending a lot on it. An example of her skin-care product favorite is Dolce & Gabbana. On the other hand, her hair is also styled by famous hair-stylers in Beverly Hills.
Her Award-Winning Outfits
When you’re one of the highest-paid celebrities out there, one of the many things important to you is your wardrobe and Scarlett has proven many times that she can turn heads every time she walks on a red carpet. Her fashion records consist of names like Valentino and Oscar de la Renta.
Born on November 22, 1984, in the New York City borough of Manhattan, Scarlett Ingrid Johansson is the daughter of Melanie Sloan (a producer) and Karsten Olaf Johansson (an architect from Denmark). Her grandfather on the paternal side is Ejner Bainkamp Johansson (an art historian, screenwriter, and film director). Her parents divorced when she was still 13 years old.
She had a twin brother named Hunter, which she brings with her in some of the events she attended. Her older sister is named Vanessa (an actress) and her older brother’s name is Adrian. She also has an older half-brother (from her dad’s first marriage) named Christian. Scarlett is both a Danish and an American citizen.
Her eye color is green while her hair is a natural brunette. She stands at 5-foot-3 and weighing 57 kg. Scarlett’s body is described to be voluptuous with measurements of 36-25-36 (varies).
Scarlett has been linked to several gentlemen throughout her career. With her natural charm, it’s something inevitable. Here are some of the most memorable men in Johansson’s life:
Scarlett and Ryan Reynolds
The two began dating in 2007 and got married in September 2008. They kept everything private as much as possible until it was announced that the couple separated in December of 2010. Johansson told Vogue: “It was horrible. Of course, it’s horrible. It was devastating. It really throws you. You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn’t work out.”
Scarlett and Romain Dauriac
After her brief dating history with Sean Penn, Scarlett began dating this French journalist named Romain Dauriac. They were engaged in 2013 and were blessed with a daughter in 2014 whom they named Rose. The pair got married in October of that same year. Sadly, their marriage was legally ended in September 2017.
“We remain close friends and co-parents with a shared commitment to raising our daughter in a loving and compassionate environment.”
Scarlett and Colin Jost
The actress met the SNL comedian back in 2006 when she once hosted the show. In 2017, rumors erupted about the two after they were seen kissing at a Saturday Night Live afterparty. Last May 2019, the actress’s publicist confirmed that the couple were engaged.
She started her career at a young age and according to IMDB, she has a total of 67 acting credits under her name. We’re going to have a rundown on some of her most memorable roles in recent years:
Don Jon: Barbara
Being one of Hollywood’s sex symbols means something, and that was highlighted in this 2013 romance comedy-drama directed by the lead star himself, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. She plays the character of Barbara, a blonde looking for romance similar to what she sees in the movies. Although there’s no depth in the character, Johansson’s effective acting makes the film entertaining to watch.
Although we haven’t seen Scarlett in this, it was her voice that delivered so much impact in Theodore and towards the viewers. Phoenix’s acting greatness is greatly accompanied by the welcoming charm of “Her”.
Jojo Rabbit: Rosie Betzler
In this 2019 war satire drama directed by Taika Waititi, Scarlett plays a German political activist at the time of the Nazi reign. She showed us the heaviness a mother could bear to protect her child who sees Hitler as some sort of hero. It was that mother-and-child bond that broke the hearts of many audiences.
Under the Skin: Laura
This 2013 Sci-Fi drama explores the other edge of extra-terrestrial invasion in a most grounded yet effective approach in film history. The extended silence in the film adds to the creepiness of the vibe brought by the story. Furthermore, it was Johansson’s believable performance, the communication through action, that gives the chills represented by the character.
Marriage Story: Nicole Barber
This 2019 drama romance film is what gave Scarlett her second Academy Awards nomination. She stars alongside Adam Driver in a story that revolves around a couple and their struggle to deal with an on-going divorce discussion. Her nomination didn’t come by surprise considering that a lot of viewers were moved by her sincere performance.
Lost in Translation: Charlotte
Who could ever forget this 2003 romance drama film directed by Sofia Coppola? Scarlett plays a young woman accompanying her boyfriend on a work tour but was left mostly alone in a hotel. She embodied a natural young lady who’s trapped in her love only to meet Bob (Bill Murray), a guy she didn’t expect to get along with. Although the ending scene was a bit puzzling for viewers, it still gave us the feeling of the right love at the wrong time. A total cinematic treasure.
Marvel Cinematic Universe: Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow
The character we should never forget to include is also one of the reasons why her career is now skyrocketing. Scarlett wasn’t the first choice for the role but Emily Blunt until she bailed out of the role and our lady got it.
“The best call you can receive is after you are rejected for something and then you get it. You appreciate it more. I’ve basically made a career out of being the second choice.”
Despite having a stunt double, Scarlett was also required by Marvel to train for combat. Her diet is also on strict supervision so she can be fit whenever her scenes are to be shot.
She first played the role back in 2008 for Iron Man and since then, her character became a favorite despite not having any superpowers but just plain over-the-top fighting skills. Her final outing as the character (so far) is for the film Black Widow which is not set to release by next year.
Don’t Call Her ScarJo!
Just don’t. Despite this moniker being popular among fans and the media, the actress just doesn’t want to be called that. “I associate that name with, like, pop stars. It sounds tacky. It’s lazy and flippant. There’s something insulting about it.” – the actress told Glamour.
