Today was the official Walk of Fame Star Ceremony for the talented Scarlett Johansson! Her career has spanned 18 years during which she started with some meaty, risky roles (an amazing job in Woody Allen’s ‘Scoop’ as well as Sofia Coppola’s ‘Lost In Translation’) to her rise in what will probably be a mainstream box office hit with ‘Avengers.’
An excited crowd of celebrities and regulars alike gathered on Hollywood Boulevard to celebrate Scarjo’s career, just across from our office! Check out these cool pics that our awesome driver Xochitl (pronounced So-Chee – yes she is as bodacious as her name sounds!) for taking these pics:
Jeremy Renner, her ‘Avengers’ co star made a speech and joked that it was “tremendously awful to work with” Scarjo. So many people came to wish her well, she must be fun to work with! Scarlett has also made her mark in real theater too, something few actors have the chops to do! A few more details about Scarjo’s career and upcoming films from the Walk of Fame reps who put these cool Star Ceremonies together:
Four-time Golden Globe nominee and BAFTA winner Scarlett Johansson, has proven to be one of Hollywood’s most talented young actresses. She won a Tony in 2010 for her Broadway debut in the Arthur Miller play “A View from a Bridge” opposite Liev Schreiber. She was most recently seen in the Cameron Crowe film “We Bought A Zoo” opposite Matt Damon and in the box office hit “Iron Man 2.” Next up, she will portray Janet Leigh in the film, “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” opposite Anthony Hopkins. Soon afterward, she is slated to begin production on the film, “Don Jon’s Addiction,” written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
You can also watch a video of the whole ceremony at the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame site. Cool!
