13 years earlier, she gained recognition for her role as cynical outcast Rebecca Doppelmeyer in the 2001 black comedy film Ghost World.

Based on the 1993-1997 comic book of the same name by Daniel Clowes that you can buy on Amazon, the cult film premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival in 2001 when Scarlett Johansson was 16 years old.

Filming wrapped in May 2000 when she was just 15. Born on November 22, 1984, in Manhattan, New York, Scarlett turned 16 on November 22, 2000.

“I didn’t find out until after I hired her that Scarlett Johansson was only 15 years old. Which means you can only work her half as much as an adult, making shooting difficult,” director Terry Zwigoff told Vanity Fair in an interview.

“They got along really well. Instant friendship. Of course, Scarlett at age 15 had the poise of someone much older. I felt that both of them could have huge careers, either as movie stars or character actresses” he added about lead actresses Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson.

“I was rather surprised that Thora didn’t do much after that, but I always thought Scarlett was a unique, eccentric person, and right for that part. She auditioned via tape from New York and didn’t seem like a bratty little kid auditioning in Beverly Hills for a TV show.”

The world’s highest-paid actress in 2018 and 2019, she secretly married Frenchman Romain Dauriac in Philipsburg, Montana, in October 2014 after the birth of their daughter, Rose Dorothy.

Dauriac and Johansson divorced in September 2017. Scarlett was previously married to Ryan Reynolds, who is currently married to Blake Lively.
