Scarlett Johansson: From Child Actress To Hollywood Superstar

Scarlett Johansson’s ascension to A-list status was cemented with a lingering close-up of her shapely, pink panty-clad derriére in the opening scene of the Oscar-winning film Lost in Translation.

Long before her revealing close-up, the striking blonde got her big break at age 11 in the indie film Manny & Lo, which earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination and the lead role in Robert Redford’s The Horse Whisperer in 1998. Since then, Johansson has continued to make her mark on the silver screen as Woody Allen’s latest muse and Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive.
