Though she’s known for her chic sense of style, Scarlett Johansson still finds herself a target of sartorial scrutiny every so often. And at the 2018 Met Gala, the actress’ choice of dress landed her in particularly hot water. However, the Avengers star didn’t bow down to popular opinion and instead came back with a thoughtful response.
Born in New York in 1984, Johansson spent much of her early life acting in film and television. And roles in the likes of 1997 family comedy Home Alone 3 and 1998’s The Horse Whisperer saw her prove her skills in her chosen field. But it wouldn’t be until Lost in Translation hit theaters in 2003 that Johansson would become a well-known name in Hollywood.
Cast as the young and yearning Charlotte, Johansson – only 17 when the film was made – lit up the screen. And the actress’ performance landed her honors from the British Academy Film Awards and the Los Angeles Film Critics Association. Moreover, it signaled her breakthrough as a star in her own right.
