Scarlett Johansson has been making waves in Hollywood with her beauty and her talent. She’ll pretty much be known to fans as Black Widow from “The Avengers,” until her next big hit. She’s not afraid to take on all kinds of interesting roles to broaden her horizon like The Major in “Ghost In The Shell.” But there’s more to this gifted actress than just looks. She has talent that goes beyond the big screen.
