Johansson's Film Career
Scarlett Johansson started her acting career at a very young age. She began acting in movies in the film North and her big break as a child came when she got a part in the movie The Horse Whisperer. This film helped move her along the road to becoming the star she is today. Scarlett Johansson became a household name as she appeared in more films throughout her teen years. She was nominated for and won many awards for her parts in the movies. Many critics said that she was one of the best parts to watch in a few of the shows. It soon became apparent that Scarlett Johansson would not just be a child star who fizzled out shortly after becoming an adult. You knew she would not have to be starring in broad form insurance commercials in her thirties just to make some extra money. She would become a huge star in no time at all.
Her talent would soon propel her into a very adult role that would be her coming of age movie. When Scarlett Johansson had the female lead in the movie Lost in Translation she was only eighteen years old. Many times in the industry someone who is older will play a much younger character. Most times the younger actors are not mature enough to handle the directions and so an older person is just easier to work with. This was not the case with Scarlett Johansson. Her maturity and professionalism impressed everyone and made the character all the more convincing. Although she was playing someone who would be well out of college, you could not tell that she herself could still possibly be in high school.
A Woody Relationship
There is no bigger fan of Scarlett Johansson than Woody Allen. He has made Scarlett Johansson his muse many times in the last decade. She has starred in quite a few of his movies including Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Although not all of the movies were huge box office hits, most of the roles were a success for her. Critics have not always liked the characters she has played in his films, but this does not seem to be a problem for the happy pair. Most people would agree that an Allen movie starring Scarlett Johansson is at least worth the price of admission.
Although Scarlett Johansson started her career at a very young age, she has continued to be a force to be reckoned with when it comes to acting. She did not let the fame go to her head and get caught up in the craziness that has been the down fall of so many other child stars. Between her beauty and her talent she is sure to remain a favorite of many and therefore a hit in the theaters.
