One of Johansson’s earliest film roles was as Grace MacLean, a teen injured in an accident with her horse, in “The Horse Whisperer” opposite Robert Redford.  (Elliot Marks / Touchstone)
It was her performance in “Ghost World” (left, with Thora Birch) that really got people’s attention. Johansson played Rebecca, a high school grad preparing for the next stage of her life in the comic book-based film. (Tracy Bennett / United Artists Films)
Johansson followed “Ghost World” with the much-adored Sofia Coppola flick “Lost in Translation,” co-starring Bill Murray. Her performance as Charlotte, a recent college graduate questioning her marriage while in Japan with her husband, yielded a Golden Globe nomination.  (Yoshio Sato / Focus Features)
Johansson’s turn as the shy Griet, a servant at the home of painter Johannes Vermeer who becomes the subject of one of his commissioned paintings, earned her another Golden Globe nomination.  (Jaap Buitendijk / Lions Gate Films)
Johansson earned her third Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of Pursy Will, a young woman who returns home after the death of her estranged mother, in “A Love Song for Bobby Long.” (Ron Phillips / Lions Gate Films)

After Johansson starred in two Woody Allen films, “Match Point” and “Scoop” (here, with Hugh Jackman, left, and Allen), many speculated that she was his new muse.  (Clive Coote / Focus Features)
Scarlett is often cited by men’s magazines as one of the sexiest women alive. It was Vanity Fair, however, that finally convinced Scarlett to bare all. She posed with a nude Keira Knightley and a clothed Tom Ford on the cover of the magazine. (Annie Leibovitz / Associated Press)
Scarlett is well-known for her husky speaking voice, but few know her for her singing voice. She earned indie-cred by singing with Jesus and Mary Chain at Coachella, and in May 2008 she released her debut album, “Anywhere I Lay My Head.” (Brea Souders / Rhino Records)
Johansson, again working with Woody Allen, plays Cristina, an American who visits Barcelona with her friend Vicky where they meet artist Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem).

In Spike Jonze’s “Her,” the actress lent her sultry voice to the character Samantha, an intelligent operating system that Joaquin Phoenix’s character falls in love with. (Warner Bros. Pictures)
Johansson sued French writer Gregoire Delacourt because his novel “La première chose qu’on regard” includes a character who is a look-a-like model for the star. A French judge ruled the book is defamatory but dismissed her claim that it fraudulently exploited her image, celebrity and name. (AFP/Getty Images)
Johansson added another nonhuman role to her resume as the alien seductress in “Under the Skin.” (Toronto Film Festival )
Johansson turned superhuman for the film “Lucy,” where she plays a drug mule who is accidentally dosed by the drug she is to transport, which activates enhanced physical and mental abilities.  (Universal Pictures)
