Scarlett was announced the highest grossing actress of all time 

The 31-year-old, who is also notably younger than the actors in the top ten list, has spoken about her box office success, telling People magazine: "There's something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole.

"I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I'm proud to be an actress who's making as much as many of my male peers at this stage. I think every woman has been underpaid, but unless I'm addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It's part of a larger conversation about feminism in general."


Scarlett is well-known for her role as Black Widow in the Avengers franchise
