Scarlett Johansson wasn’t all THAT happy about making movie history


Scarlett Johansson recently made movie history by becoming the highest grossing actress of all time, but it looks like the Lost in Translation star wasn't as overjoyed as people might have expected.

While both the viewing public and many in the movie industry celebrated Scarlett's inclusion in the top ten highest grossing actors and actresses of all time, the 31-year-old star focussed her attention on the fact she was the ONLY female in the top ten.

With stars like Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson and Morgan Freeman beating Scarlett to a higher place on the list, the actress felt dismayed that she wasn't surrounded by more female stars in the top ten.

"It's kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category," she said while attending the Gene Siskel Film Centre's annual gala in Chicago.

Instead of celebrating her position in the chart compiled by Box Office Mojo, Scarlett lamented the lack of female presence, saying "That was a little bit of a surprise to me."

Previously commenting on the impact she has made on the movie industry, the Jungle Book star said: "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 has reportedly pulled in a whopping €3.3 billion in the box office over the course of her career.
