Scarlett Johansson is by far one of the biggest A-list stars in the entertainment industry. It doesn’t matter if she is starring in one of the year’s hottest movies or not: people will pay attention to her no matter what. There are plenty of reasons why she’s got name recognition all over the world. She’s beautiful, she’s talented and she’s mysterious. She has become a household name and she is only 33 years old. One of the reasons why people want to know everything there is to know about someone like Scarlett is because she doesn’t reveal many details about her personal life. In fact, she’s very private. Even though she often makes headlines about the places she goes and the people she dates, she’s not the kind of person who kisses and tells.
With that being said, though, Scarlett does spend a whole lot of money keeping her luxurious life under the radar, too. The Hollywood actress is considered one of the highest-paid actors in the celebrity world. She likes to make her money on all the finer things in life, if you know what we mean. With that being said, here are 15 things that Scarlett Johansson loves to spend her Hollywood paychecks on.
15 Flying Around To Exciting Locations
According to reports, Scarlett Johansson’s estimated net worth sits at a whopping $100 million dollars. But surely, anyone who has been following her career these last few years knows that Scarlett is worth every penny, if not more. After all, she’s starred in some great movies during her career, including (and not limited to), Lost In Translation, Her, The Avengers, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Iron Man and so many more.
Now, Scarlett might not look like one of those actresses that likes to spend their paychecks on designer clothes, shoes and accessories but trust us when we say that she is a big spender. I mean, the paparazzi might not catch her flying off on her private jet all the time, but that doesn’t mean she doesn't do it. In fact, it’s the only way she gets from Point A to Point B.
14 Her Swanky Los Angeles Home
A girl in Los Angeles has to have the right kind of crib, especially if she is looking for a fairly easy commute to the movie studios and wants that great, priceless view of the Hollywood Hills (actually, who are we kidding? Everything in Hollywood costs more than what you pay for your monthly mortgage). According to reports, Scarlett dropped $4 million dollars on a fancy home in the ultra trendy Los Angeles neighborhood called Los Feliz. It was a newly remodelled home that she and her ex-husband Romain Dauriac purchased together.
One description of the home said, "Built in the 1940s, the four-bedroom house sits on almost an acre of land and boasts four full and two half bathrooms, a step-down living room with a marble fireplace, a kitchen featuring a center island with marble-and-quartz countertops and a balcony in the master bedroom with a view of the Hollywood sign.”
13 Her Enormous Hamptons Home
When you are a huge A-list star like Scarlett Johansson, one home is simply not enough. Scarlett knows how to invest in her real estate! Reports also say that the A-lister bought a home in the Hamptons back in 2014. Life is good when you’ve got two homes on two different coasts, right? She put down $2.2 million dollars on the 1.4-acre mansion and spread.
According to the Hollywood reporters, the four bedroom home has an “open floor plan space includes decks that expand the living space outside, along with a master suite featuring its own private balcony and fireplace. There are also three additional guest rooms each with their own balcony.” If you ask us, the place sounds like a great crib to throw some major summertime parties.
12 She Pays A Whole Lot Of Money To Keep Her Privacy
Scarlett has a toddler daughter, but you wouldn’t know that. That’s because unlike other celebrities, she doesn't walk past the paparazzi everyday hoping that they’ll pay attention to her. And unlike other celebrities, she doesn’t share photos of her daughter on social media. In fact, she keeps her well hidden from the public altogether.
It’s without a doubt that Scarlett spends a lot of money to keep her private life private. And we're pretty sure that it’s not always easy. After all, Scarlett is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and a household name in most countries. But if there’s one thing that she does right (even if she has to pay for it), it’s keeping her family life under the radar. Kudos to her for doing what’s best for her daughter.
11 She Will Drop A Lot Of Cash To Keep Her Secret Dates As Private As Possible
People today are very cynical and can be quite critical, especially with tools like social media. They need to bring other people down. Never before did we need to see movie stars taking out their garbage, but we can now thanks to tabloid magazines and reality television. But all of a sudden, it's front-page news and trying to figure out who's dating whom, and all that stuff. Who cares?
Just recently Scarlett was linked to Saturday Night Live star Colin Jolt. The two have been making it no secret that they are into each other and have been spotted getting close at restaurants and bars all across New York City. Yes, Colin is successful at what he does, but you can’t help but wonder who is picking up the tab at all of their dates. That, and who insists on going on all these dates to begin with!
10 Her Many Expensive Trips To France Add Up To A Lot
While Scarlett was still married to her ex-husband Romain Dauriac, she would spend a lot of time traveling back and forth between Los Angeles and his native France. As a matter of fact, Scarlett also did a lot of shopping while she lived in France, too. With her luxurious private jet and her lavish traveling habits, it’s no doubt that she spent a whopping amount of money for her transatlantic flights.
Scarlett tried to shop incognito while in Paris, but it never worked out for her. The paparazzi always managed to catch her one way or another. In fact, the French paparazzi seemed more interested her than the ones she deals with Stateside. Scarlett once said, “I value my privacy and my personal life – and I certainly don't exploit my personal life. There's no such thing as an aura of mystery anymore. It doesn't exist. That's a thing of the past.”
9 She Gets Her Haircuts Only From The Best Hair Salons In Beverly Hills
Scarlett Johansson gets a lot of attention for her hair. We know that. But if there’s one thing that Scarlett Johansson has made controversial, it’s also her hair. In fact, it’s safe to say that the blonde beauty has tried every haircut in the book. We’ve seen her with long her, with super short hair, with red hair, with buzzed hair and so much in between. The girl loves to experiment and it shows.
Of course, those haircuts don’t come cheap. As a Hollywood star, she knows that she needs to look good at all times, even when she least expects it. That’s why she goes to the best hair salons that Beverly Hills has to offer to look picture perfect at all times. And according to Scarlett, the money she spends on her hair is worth every penny.
8 Maintaining Her Flawless Skin With Expensive Products
Scarlett Johansson has the best skin in Hollywood. Okay, we don’t know that as a fact but we also can’t remember the last time she was spotted with a pimple or a blemish in public. Plus, she was once the face of Dolce and Gabbana makeup. Her skin is one of her best features and also the reason why she stars in so many ad campaigns, too.
As we all know, you need to work in order to have good skin. For some it comes natural, for others, it doesn't. And Scarlett understands that she often gets more attention for her appearance than her actual work. For her, it’s disheartening but also part of her daily life. She once said, “You work hard making independent films for fourteen years and you get voted best [chest].”
7 Her Expensive Haute Couture Style
Whenever Scarlett is on the red carpet, she almost automatically makes the Best Dressed list. Her couture style is mostly hits rather than misses. She also has a lot of fun with fashion and it shows. She loves dressing up for the cameras, her fans, and the entire industry for that matter.
Scarlett once explained it this way, “I once heard that women dress for women – not for men – and I think that has some truth to it. Men, what do they know? They don't know if you gain or lose five pounds. They're oblivious to those kinds of things. A lot of men will say 'I like you just as you are.' And you're like 'But I'm bloated!' If they're attracted to you, they're attracted to you.”
6 She Likes Her Private Jets
When you’re someone like Scarlett Johansson, you can’t get away with buying a ticket on a commercial flight. Could you imagine the look on everyone’s faces if they realized that Scarlett was on the same JFK to LAX flight as them? It would cause a situation, and not the pleasant kind either. That’s why stars like Scarlett prefer to travel around the world in the comfort of a luxury jet instead. Not only do they get to avoid all of the bad service that comes with flying commercial, but they also get to do it with style and ease.
And trust us when we say that Scarlett can definitely afford this kind of lifestyle and especially with her net worth. Considering how private she is, Scarlett also wants to make sure that her family rides in style with her, too.
5 She Takes Many Luxurious Vacations
If Scarlett Johansson is not making movies on location, going on secret dates in the Hamptons or getting off to Paris for shopping sprees, there’s a good chance that you’ll find her frolicking in the sun in Cabos San Lucas. Just like so many other stars, Scarlett often likes to retreat south of the border for her luxurious vacations. And who can blame her? Cabo is like a beach playground for Hollywood stars.
Also, Scarlett doesn’t take anything for granted. She knows she has a good life and doesn’t make any excuses for it, either. She’s worked for everything that she has achieved, both personally and professionally. She once said, “You think that your life is going to be one way, and then, for various reasons or whatever, it doesn't work out.”
4 Enhancing Her Appearance
Let’s make one thing very clear here: Scarlett is a beautiful woman. There’s no denying it. But according to the actress, she wants to put her money where her mouth is, quite literally. She says that she’s open to having enhancements done in the future.
As a matter of fact, Scarlett once said, “I definitely believe in [enhancements]. I don’t want to look like an old hag.” Of course, it can be argued that Scarlett may be one of a few actresses in Hollywood that shouldn’t mess with the features she was born with and that’s because she doesn’t have to. The woman is drop dead gorgeous. Leave your looks the way they are, Scarlett. You might not want to be an old hag, but we doubt that you want to look like a caricature of your old self!
3 She Likes To Donate A Lot To Different Charities
Just like many other Hollywood stars, Scarlett Johansson is a very charitable person. She loves to give back whenever she can. According to reports, Scarlett is involved with a number of charity organizations including Aid Still Required, Feeding America, Not On Our Watch, the American Humane Society, Cancer Research UK and so many more. Plus, she’s also served as an ambassador for Oxfam for eight years.
Scarlett also puts her money where her mouth is. If she says something, you better believe it that she will follow up with it. She once said, “I'm not telling people where to give money, but if there is to be a spotlight shed on me, then I'd like to direct that spotlight onto causes I think are worthy or onto interesting, progressive figures.”
2 She Likes To Splurge On Dates
As we know, Scarlett Johansson loves to have fun. You see it on her face whenever she’s out and about. And apparently, she’s no cheap date either. Back in 2008 it was reported that one lucky bidder spent $40,000 to win a date with the blonde beauty. Wow! The bidding started at a mere $1 but skyrocketed to $40,000 in less than ten days. We knew that Scarlett was a hot commodity, but apparently the woman is on fire!
The lucky man who went on a date with Scarlett was from the U.K. He got to accompany the actress for the red carpet premiere of her film, He’s Just Not That Into You. Scarlett was dating Ryan Reynolds at the time, but luckily he didn’t show any signs of jealousy (at least not to our knowledge!) When you’re dating a girl like Scarlett, it’s doubtful that you would want to share! She also likes to go all out when it comes to her private dates.
1 One Of The Highest Paid Actresses In Hollywood Has A Lot Of Cash To Save
For years now Scarlett Johansson has been on the top of her game. Even when her movies don’t bank as much as the studios would hope for, she still cashes in on whopping checks that help pay for her extravagant lifestyle. Back in 2016, Scarlett made $17.5 million dollars for her controversial role in the movie, Ghost In The Shell. If you’ve never heard of the movie, don’t worry, as we’re sure you’re not the only person. The film ended up being one of the biggest box office bombs that year.
And honestly, with the exception of the Avengers franchise, Scarlett hasn’t had a hit film in years, yet she’s still raking in plenty of dough. It must be nice to get paid well, regardless of how well your movies will be. As a result, she has plenty of money to save for her family.
