Johansson Hollywood's top-grossing actress

Associated Press Associated Press 30/06/2016

Scarlett Johansson has taken the crown as Hollywood's highest-grossing actress ever.

A website called Box Office Mojo that tracks how much money movies make lists Johansson as the top-earning actress.

It says her films have made more than $US3.3 billion ($A4.43 billion). Cameron Diaz is the second-highest-grossing actress, at just over $US3 billion.

Johansson's status on the list is no doubt helped by her recurring role as Black Widow in the Avengers series and other Marvel blockbusters, including this year's Captain America: Civil War.

Despite being tops among actresses, Johansson sits in just 10th place overall. Box Office Mojo lists Harrison Ford as the all-time champion.

It says his movies have earned nearly $US4.9 billion in cinemas.
