Name: Scarlett Ingrid Johansson
Born: November 22nd, 1984
Born in New York City (as most of the greats are!) Scarlett showed a great ability for acting right from childhood. Throughout her days as a young girl, she often scored roles in plays and enjoyed acting any chance she could do it. Her big break came in 1994 when she stated in the movie North as Laura Nelson. There was a bit of a dry spell, but four years later Scarlett gained global recognition for her role in the movie The Horse Whisperer. After this one it was all uphill for this stunning actress.
After the Horse Whisperer came Ghost World in 2001, Lost in Translation in 2003, Girl with a Pearl Earring in 2003, Mission Impossible III in 2006 and The Island in 2005. Her more current work includes Iron Man 2 and He’s Just Not That Into You by Drew Barrymore’s production company. She is currently filming Hitchcock, slated for release sometime in 2013 and her next movie, Under the Skin, is in its post production stages. There is certainly no shortage of work for Scarlett and therefore, no shortage of funds. The most current numbers on her net worth is $35 million. Rumour has it that she is now paid $5 million per movie and this makes her one of Hollywood’s top paid actresses.
So how much is $35 million really?
If someone with $35 million dollars was so inclined, they could feed a lot of people with nearly 35 million hard shell tacos from Taco Bell. Cut that in half to add a drink for each taco and you have approx enough food to feed 18 million people lunch! That would require a long table, though. A table to seat 18 million guests would need to be about 7 000 km (4 400 miles) long. That might be a problem because if the table went from New York to Los Angeles half the guests would still have to stand. She might not have any money left, but that would still be one loud party! Although it would take 3 hours for the sound to travel from one end of the table to the other. Making meaningful conversation a bit tricky.
Toilet paper is something we all take for granted. It never ceases to amaze me how much we pay for something that we flush down the toilet. For $35 million, she could have 7 million six pack of Scott’s brand tissue paper. That would last a lifetime for several hundred people! If Charmin is what you prefer (it is softer after all), we can knock that number down to about 6 million six packs of tissue. Either way, bathrooms across the world would be set for life!
