Scarlett Johannson is one of the top actresses in the world — but can she tell why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch? If so, she’ll probably make a movie about it. From her early childhood as a small-time actress to her blooming teen indie years to her formative 20s when she became the kick-butt action star of some of the better movies of the decade, to the late 2010s when she started moving behind the camera, Johansson has been one of the preeminent forces in Hollywood for a long, long time — so let’s look at some of the weird stuff she’s done, odd shops she’s owned, and ways our version of the ScarJo experience could’ve been a lot different – more problematic, for instance, or … with a lot more singing. 

Here are 15 facts about one of the Founding Avengers, one of the world’s highest-paid actresses, and the nerd’s older sister in Eight Legged Freaks – you remember, the giant Them movie but instead of ants it had spiders, and instead of a plot it had an ostrich farm. Hey, Scarlett, when are you making a remake of Eight Legged Freaks? Sixteen Legged Freaks, maybe? Make Tom Holland get in on that.
