Scarlett Johansson has just been named as the top box-office actress of all time, but she says she was both happy and also a little “disappointed” about it.
"It's exciting to be the only woman in the category…It's kind of disappointing, actually, to be the only woman in this category,” she told Extra at the Gene Siskel Film Centre’s annual gala in Chicago. “That was a little bit of a surprise to me."
Scarjo, 31, came in 10th place with a $3.3 billion gross from 37 movies. Ahead of her were male actors Samuel L Jackson, Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freedman, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Murphy and Michael Caine.
The actress told Cosmo at the beginning of the year that "it feels a little obnoxious" for her to weigh in on the wage discrepancy debate within Hollywood and stated that gender equality is a larger issue, as "it's part of a larger conversation about feminism in general".
