Scarlett Ingrid Johansson, as she turns 34 today (22 November 2018), keeps us awestruck over how beauty and talent can be juggled with ease. Her talent speaks for herself on screen and it feels like age permanently fails to catch up with her. Such is the timelessness of Scarlett Johansson who is an American actress and singer. She is the world’s highest-paid actress who has made appearances in the Forbes Celebrity 100 magazine, not once, but multiple times.
On her birthday, let’s all rewind and glimpse over the best characters of Scarlett Johansson that we have seen so far.
The Daring Charlotte In Lost In Translation

This Oscar-winning film portrays Johansson’s character as Charlotte who wanders around Tokyo aimlessly while her husband (Giovanni Ribisi) works as a photographer. She befriends aging actor Bob (Bill Murray), and they embark on a journey of camaraderie and ultimately forms a bond between themselves that is unbreakable. Charlotte graced Johansson with BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations and it is still considered by many to be one of her most memorable and moving performances to date.

The historical drama based on Vermeer’s famous painting presents Johansson as Griet, a maid who is in charge of cleaning the painter’s studio. The character of Griet experiences class struggle and explores forbidden love, and Johansson’s restrained performance hiked her versatility as an actress by considerable notches.
The Adventurous Cristina In Vicky Cristina Barcelona

In this romantic comedy-drama, we witness a happy go lucky Johansson playing the role of Cristina, a spontaneous and carefree young woman who with her friend Vicky, spends the summer in Spain. Both women get involved in an illicit love affair with Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem). With the introduction of Antonio’s ex-wife, the story takes a new turn and we see the characters of Vicky and Cristina find out their individual definition of romance and life. Johansson’s girl next door character in the movie was much appreciated by movie critics.
The Invincible Lucy In Lucy

The fun action that this movie portrays is a no-brainer and Lucy, the character played by Johansson, from a normal being transforms into a psychokinetic butt-kicking woman who is out for vengeance. Johansson’s role as Lucy has earned her the title of female terminator and she has successfully delivered an insanely entertaining performance.
Johansson made bold career choices, appearing in Oscar-winning movies to dramatic period pieces as well as edgy romantic comedies. Here’s wishing the versatile diva, a very Happy Birthday!
