Box office sensation! Scarlett has OFFICIALLY made movie history

by

While discussion surrounding the gender pay gap continues to rage in Hollywood, it's easy to become disillusioned by the whole damn thing.

With that in mind, it's refreshing to see that despite the inequality so regularly highlighted in the movie industry, female stars are still kicking ass at the box office, and being recognised for it too.

Step forward Scarlett Johansson who has just been named as the highest-grossing actress OF ALL TIME.

In a report compiled by Box Office Mojo, it has been established that 31-year-old Scarlett has raked in a staggering $3.3 BILLION since making her first foray onto the silver screen in the 90s.

According to Vogue, Scarlett, who starred in Lost in Translation, The Jungle Book and The Girl with the Pearl Earring to name but three,  is the only female star – not to mention the youngest – to feature in the report's top ten.

Scarlett previously commented on the gender pay gap which was again brought to the fore again recently when word got out that Jennifer Lawrence was being paid less than her male co-stars.

"I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I'm proud to be an actress who's making as much as many of my male peers at this stage."

Scarlett, you're killing it.
