Scarlett Johansson named ‘top grossing’ actor by Forbes

image010Scarlett Johansson has been named as the top grossing actor of 2016 by Forbes magazine.
Her movies, including Captain America: Civil War and the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar!, earned $1.2bn (£978m) globally over the past 12 months.
Johansson’s Marvel co-stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr tied for second place with $1.15bn (£938m) each.
Last year, the list was topped by Chris Pratt while, in 2014, Jennifer Lawrence took the top honours.
Forbes curates the annual list by adding up global ticket sales using data from analysis site Box Office Mojo.
Animated movies, where only actors’ voices were used, are not included and only top-billed performances are counted.
Johansson is joined in the top five by two other actresses – Australian Margot Robbie, who starred in the successful yet critically mauled Suicide Squad, which grossed $746m ($609m) worldwide, and Amy Adams.
