There might not be a more desirable celebrity in Hollywood than Scarlett Johansson. She’s not only incredibly beautiful but as you’ll learn throughout our list she has several qualities that make it all the more shocking that she is currently single.
And with no other guys on the horizon, that means that one of the sexiest women of all-time (and if you deny that, you won’t by the end of our list) is also enjoying the single life.
Below we have 15 photos that will make you glad Scarlett is single, whether it’s showing off her various acting talents (including a role on broadway), showing off her body for various magazines or at the beach or some unconventional reasons like the fact that she owns a popcorn shop we’re sure it won’t be long before more guys come calling.
15. This Is How She’d Look First Thing In The Morning
Scarlett Johansson looks absolutely stunning when she is ready for a night on the town or the red carpet and is wearing tons of makeup, but that doesn’t mean she needs it to look amazing!
The above photo was taken back in 2014 for Vanity Fair and features a makeup-free Johansson and helps solidify that Johansson would also look beautiful when she rolls out of her bed in the morning.
Johansson was one of the several celebrities photographed by Chuck Close, who commended the stars saying
“They have to give up a great deal of vanity in order to do it. And it takes a real act of generosity and faith on the part of the subject to go with it and to give me their image without having any control over what’s gonna happen.”
14. She Was 2006 Esquire Woman Of The Year
Scarlett Johansson may be one of the biggest sex symbols in 2017, something that was also clearly the case back in 2006 when she was named Esquire’s “sexiest woman in the world”. You need to hope you think your partner is the most beautiful woman, but Scarlett literally has the award to prove it!
To make the award all the more exciting, it led to an unforgettable photo shoot. Perhaps that’s why they also picked her as the sexiest woman in 2013 as well!
Back in 2006 however, Scarlett was open about the fact that there is more to her than just her body saying in an interview,
13. She Loves Animals!
You ready to really fall for Scarlett? Not only is she incredibly beautiful and talented, but she’s also a huge animal lover. I’m sure you can already picture you and Scarlett taking a cute dog out for a stroll in the park on a regular basis. Not to mention if you already have an animal, you’ve got yourself an excellent icebreaker (you know as opposed to stammering all over yourself and trying not to stare).

Scarlett got up close and personal with several animals in the 2011 movie We Bought a Zoo. When interviewed, Scarlett mentioned that she grew up with several cats and currently had a dog.
12. She’s Comfortable Being Hilarious
When it comes to qualities that a woman can have that helps them stand out, being funny is definitely something that is going to be important for several men. Thankfully there is little denying that Johansson doesn’t have a comedic bone in her body.
Need any proof? How about the fact that she has hosted Saturday Night Live 5 times (one of 17 celebrities to host it that many times, and one of only 4 women) including very recently on March 11th.
11. She Owns Her Own YummyPop Store
Can you imagine hanging out with Scarlett Johansson and then she pulls out some of the delicious gourmet popcorn Yummy Pop?
That could be a very real reality as Johansson has opened up her own Yummy Pop store, the only kicker? It’s in Paris! Though it’s not like she can’t afford to fly you out there.
Johansson spent a solid portion of her short-lived marriage with Romain Dauriac in Paris, a decision she called the best of her life (the move, probably not the relationship)!
As an added bonus, the above photo which was taken in December is the last photo of the two together in public. Something tells me that Romain probably isn’t quite the popcorn fan that he was when they were together.
10. You Guys Could Go Running Together
If you were going to be getting close to Johansson on a regular basis, you can imagine that you may feel a great deal of pressure to make sure you are also staying in excellent shape. After all, she isn’t going to be able to kick the amount of ass she needs to in several of her movie roles if she isn’t able to rock some cardio in her real life.
Thankfully as proof enough with the above photos, Johansson is no stranger to rocking out in yoga pants.
When talking about her daily routine in March, Johansson explained,
“Getting up, going to the gym, eating clean and working a long day and then going to bed and sleeping well and getting up and doing it again the next day. You kind of fall into this routine.”
9. Beach Season Just Got More Fun
You wouldn’t be the only person who is reading this list and cannot wait for beach season to be in full effect. One of the best reasons is not only do you get to go and lounge in the sun but so do some of the best looking celebrities in Hollywood and you better believe the paparazzi is going to be on-hand to catch every moment.
And are you really surprised that one of the best looking celebrities of all-time also looks good when she gets her tan on? Of course not, but we’re also sure you aren’t hating on us sharing the photo with you.
The above photo was taken when Scarlett was hanging out on a beach in Hawaii with her then-boyfriend. Something tells us that probably wasn’t the only time that week that he suggested the hang out in swimsuits!
8. She’s An Avenger
You have to admit one of the most intriguing topics of conversation that would happen on a “first date” with Scarlett Johansson is her work alongside the Avengers. After all, there might not be a more desirable franchise to be a part of, and there might not be a better-looking superhero than Johansson. We’re sure you wouldn’t be alone in hoping that she brings the outfit to the bedroom, but make sure to not get too handsy as she can clearly kick some (on-screen) ass!
The only downside of dating an Avenger is you can imagine Johansson will spend hundreds of hours over the next few years working on and promoting the movies, especially if she ends up potentially getting her own standalone film; which Robert Downey Jr. also touches on below.
7. She’s Taken Some Intimate Photos
When it comes to the lady that you are trying to woo, or perhaps currently courting one of the elements that may make them all the more appealing is the sending of intimate photos back and forth.
You can hopefully assume that those photos are only going to stay between the two of you, but if you’re a celebrity you definitely don’t have that type of guarantee. Johansson knows this well enough as her intimate photos were hacked and released on the internet several years ago.
6. Her First Photo As A Single Woman
When it comes to the above photo, the context is just as important as the sexy nature of it. The photo was taken back in February and marked the first time that Johansson stepped out in front of the cameras after announcing her and her husband Romain had been separated since summer.
The two officially filed for divorce on March 7th, 2016.
This isn’t the first time that Johansson has gone through the divorce proceedings, previously divorcing Ryan Reynolds but we’re sure that doesn’t make it any easier.
Shortly following her split with Romain, Johansson also sat down with Playboy magazine and admitted that she doesn’t believe monogamy is natural; though does also say she could never imagine being in an open relationship.
5. She Was Also 2013 Esquire Sexiest Woman
Do you want some proof that Scarlett is probably going to age gracefully? How about the fact that she took home the title of the sexiest woman in the world (at least according to Esquire) for the 2nd time. And considering you probably thought she already looked gorgeous above when we showed her in 2006 (feel free to go double check), it’s clear that they didn’t make a mistake (nor really have any other choice!) but to give her the title again.
She also marks the only woman to win the “coveted title” on two separate occasions and if you remember the drill from above, that means you get another photo from a steamy photoshoot!
4. She’s In The Jungle Book!
Did you grow up loving the movie The Jungle Book? You definitely wouldn’t be the only one, which is why when Jon Favreau set out to make a live-action version in 2016 he knew the stakes were high. Which is why he brought in some powerhouse actors, including Scarlett Johansson who voiced Kaa.
When asked why he chose to switch Kaa from a male character to a female for the movie, Favreau explained that he felt there were too many males in the series already and wanted to diversify things.
Audiences clearly bought in, with the movie earning close to $1 billion at the box office and also helped prove that as amazing as Johansson is to look at, we definitely don’t mind listening to her voice either.
3. How Amazing She Looks On Broadway
In 2010, Scarlett Johansson had one of her biggest breaks when she appeared in Iron Man 2 but that year she was also turning heads with her fantastic portrayal in the broadway show A View From the Bridge. In fact, she was so good, she took home a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play.
While some critics bashed Johansson, saying that she was undeserving of her Tony win and fame she shot back in an interview
“A lot of my friends who are struggling actors are going through the same thing. But, I can’t apologize for it. I have worked my ass off to get to where I am so I understand that struggle.”
2. Who Her Co-Stars Are
If we’re going to paint some imaginary situation where Scarlett Johansson is single and you’re actually making a move on her, can you imagine how awesome it would be to be hanging out and be all “Yo babe, you wanna call up the Avengers to come over for a pool party?”
RDJ clearly has high praise for Scarlett, including saying in an interview but also made sure to give praise for Paltrow’s performance as Pepper Potts,
“To me, the Iron Man franchise would never have taken off without (Gwyneth) Paltrow. There’s something about her that grounded the story. She’s not your typical lady in a superhero movie, and then by Iron Man 3 she’s swallowing serums and putting on suits and kicking (butt) and all that stuff. It would be kind of more appropriate for a character that already was like a Black Widow (to lead a movie). It just seems like whatever Scarlett does people want to go see it.”
We’re sure he’s not wrong that a standalone Black Widow movie would be well-received. If DC has success with Wonder Woman, you can expect it to have an impact on if Scarlett will get her shot at a solo film.
1. She Looks Amazing When Singing
You’re probably used to seeing Johansson steal the show on the big screen, but the above photo should also help make it clear that she also looks amazing when rocking out on stage.
Johansson has had various runs in the music business including releasing her own album entitled Anywhere I Lay My Head back in 2008 to mixed reviews. She also worked with Pete Yorn for the 2009 album Break Up.
Johansson also formed the all-girl band “The Singles” back in 2015, saying “The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls,. I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.”
Sadly Johansson didn’t realize that “The Singles” was the name of another band which had been around for 16 years and she was quickly ordered to cease and desist using the band name.
We’re sure Johansson wishes she could have solved that problem with the Avengers!
