Scarlett Johansson Gets ‘Walk Of Fame’ Star
Johansson, who is also known for roles in “The Prestige” and “Lost in Translation,” was dressed in a 50s bombshell look, with a curve-hugging black and white dress, red peep-toe pumps, and a Hollywood classic coiffed updo.
The 27-year-old actress is the 2,470th recipient of the award, and will have her name displayed along with other Hollywood greats.
She was joined at the unveiling, which took place in front of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard, by “The Avengers” co-stars Jeremy Renner and Clark Gregg, as well as her mother Melanie Sloan, and grandmother Dorothy Sloan.
Along with posing for pictures with her star, Scarlett Johansson also signed autographs for fans. Ana Martinez, Hollywood Walk of Fame, and producer of the accolade said in her speech to the crowd that:
“We are thrilled to honor an actress who has graced the screen and stage since she was 8 years old. Over the past 18 years Scarlett has matured into a recognized cinematic presence with an impressive body of work.”
Included in that body of work is Scarlett’s independently produced film “Under The Skin” and her portrayal of Maggie the Cat in the Broadway production of Tennessee Williams’s Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. When asked her thoughts about the Broadway casting, the actress confided:
“I cannot wait absolutely to get to it. I’m exhilarated, I’m terrified, but I think in a good way.”
Scarlett Johansson is also set to play Janet Leigh in the film, “Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho” opposite Anthony Hopkins, who now bears more than a passing resemblance to Alfred Hitchcock.
