Scarlett Johansson is not only a BAFTA-winning and a Golden Globe-nominated actress, she is also one of the most beautiful and sexiest women on the planet.
Over the course of Johansson's career so far, we have seen her in plenty of memorable sexy scenes. Consequently, I have decided to make a collection of ScarJo's hottest on-screen performances and moments. Without further ado, here they are — enjoy!
Charlotte in Lost in Translation (2003)
Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation (2003) was the film that turned Johansson into a star. This films sees an unlikely but intense connection spring up between Scarlett Johannson's Charlotte and Bill Murray's Bob.
Pursy Will in A Love Song for Bobby Long (2004)
In her next role, Johannson played a plucky and headstrong young woman trying to restore balance to her life in the face of tragedy. Scarlett obviously did not invent sideboob, but as seen in the clip above, she certainly perfected it.
Nola Rice in Match Point (2005)
Here is how director Woody Allen described Johansson during the filming of Match Point (2005):
"It is very hard to be extra witty around a sexually overwhelming, beautiful young woman who is wittier than you are."
Jordan Two Delta / Sarah Jordan in The Island (2005)
This futuristic flick sees Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson uncover a conspiracy around 'the Island', the only place left in the world where you can actually live a life. In amongst the chaos and conspiracy, Ewan and Scarlett managing to do some — umm — living of their own.
Kay Lake in The Black Dahlia (2006)
Johansson smouldered in this neo-noir crime thriller about LA's most famous unsolved murder case.
Annie Braddock in The Nanny Diaries (2007)
Black Widow and Captain America engaging in an awkward conversation?! Yes, please! Not only that, we get to witness The Return of The Pink Panties — albeit a slightly jazzier pair than the ones we saw in Lost in Translation!
Cristina in Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008)
Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) is one of the sexiest movies of all time, and Scarlett's performance in the film is a big reason for that. Scarlett plays a sexually adventurous young woman who becomes ensnared with seductive painter Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem) — and his equally seductive partner, Maria Elena (Penelope Cruz).
Silken Floss in The Spirit (2008)
In 2008's The Spirit, Johannson got to sink her teeth into a bad-girl role, playing the dastardly accomplice to Samuel L. Jackson's The Octopus. We got to say: Silken Floss has got to be the hottest scientist ever!
Anna in He's Just Not That Into You (2009)
Scarlett Johannson plays your typical homewrecker in this romantic movie — but when she looks this good, we can't help but root for her. Trust us girl: he's definitely into you!
Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in Iron Man 2 (2010)
Johansson made Black Widow the sexiest heroine in cinema. It will be interesting to see whether Gal Gadot can change that, but she's certainly up against some stiff competition.
Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in The Avengers (2012)
The ability of Scarlett Johansson to shine in fight scenes (and look incredible in them) has played a huge part in the success of the MCU.
Barbara Sugarman in Don Jon (2013)
In Don Jon (2013) Scarlett proved that the Jersey accent can be sexy... extremely sexy. She rocked several incredible bodycon dresses in this movie, and seduced Joseph Gordon Levitt's porn-addicted Don Jon with ease.
The Female in Under The Skin (2013)
Under The Skin (2013) is an extremely underrated film. It deals with issues of race and immigration, as well as gender and feminist themes and also gives us a chance to completely appreciate ScarJo's beauty, as well as her acting prowess.
So, there you have it, folks! She may smoulder every time she's on screen, but this list also proves that she's one of the most effervescent and versatile actresses in Hollywood today.
