The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honors actress Scarlett Johansson with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. in front of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, 6931 Hollywood Boulevard.

"We are thrilled to honor an actress who has graced the screen and stage since she was eight years old. Over the past 18 years Scarlett has matured into a recognized cinematic presence with an impressive body of work," stated Ana Martinez, Hollywood Walk of Fame Producer.



Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model and singer. Johansson began acting during childhood, after her mother started taking her to auditions. She made her film debut at nine years old, as John Ritter's daughter in the 1994 fantasy comedy North. Following minor roles in the 1995 film Just Cause, as the daughter of Sean Connery and Kate Capshaw, and If Lucy Fell in 1996, she played the role of Amanda in Manny & Lo (1996). Her performance in Manny & Lo garnered a nomination for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Lead Female, and positive reviews, one noting, "[the film] grows on you, largely because of the charm of ... Scarlett Johansson", while San Francisco Chronicle critic Mick LaSalle commentated on her "peaceful aura", and wrote, "If she can get through puberty with that aura undisturbed, she could become an important actress." Johansson made her film debut in North and was later nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in Manny & Lo. She rose to further prominence with her roles in The Horse Whisperer and Ghost World. She transitioned to adult roles with her performances in Girl with a Pearl Earring and Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation, for which she won a BAFTA award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Both films earned her Golden Globe Award nominations.
A role in A Love Song for Bobby Long earned Johannson a third Golden Globe for Best Actress nomination. Johansson garnered another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress with her role in Woody Allen's Match Point. She went on to star in two further Allen movies: Scoop and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Johansson has appeared in other successful films, such as Christopher Nolan's The Prestige. Johansson plays popular Marvel comic book character Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff in the films Iron Man 2 and The Avengers.
The 2010 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge gave Johannson some of her best reviews for her acting, and she received a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play. On May 20, 2008, Johansson debuted as a vocalist on her first album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, which comprises mostly cover versions of Tom Waits songs. Her second album, Break Up, with Pete Yorn, was released in September 2009.
Johansson is a Global Ambassador for the aid and development agency, Oxfam.
