Scarlett Johansson has proven time and again that she is an unstoppable force in the world of entertainment. With numerous big-screen projects lined up, including "Hail, Caesar!", "Jungle Book", another "Captain America" film, and "Ghost in the Shell", along with recently becoming a mother, it's remarkable how she manages to juggle it all. This is prepared by SSP.

Off-screen, there are still many interesting things we don't know about her, beyond her impressive filmography. Did you know that Scarlett Johansson is not just an actress but also a kazoo player? Yes, she indeed has talents beyond the silver screen. Let's delve into some fascinating facts about ScarJo that will leave you awe-struck.

1. Early Beginnings

Johansson embarked on her acting journey at the tender age of eight, appearing in a skit on the Conan O’Brien show in 1995. A decade later, she graced his show once again, this time as a Golden Globe-nominated star.

2. Near Misses

Scarlett has had both wise choices and fortunate breaks throughout her career. She once auditioned for Lindsay Lohan's dual role in "The Parent Trap", successfully sidestepping that particular career path. Furthermore, she turned down forgettable roles in films like "Mission: Impossible III" and "Superman Returns", which allowed her to make smarter career moves later on.

3. Hidden Talent

Not only does Johansson possess a captivating voice, but she has also explored her singing abilities. Despite not dominating the Billboard charts, she auditioned for Andrew Lloyd Webber's West End revival of "The Sound Of Music" and recorded an album of smoky Tom Waits covers. Her track "Before My Time" for the docuseries "Chasing Ice" even earned an Oscar nomination.

4. Surprising Crushes

While Scarlet Johansson is celebrated as a Hollywood sensation and often honored as the "Sexiest Woman", her taste in men holds some surprises. During her younger years, she had a crush on pop prince David Bowie and has openly admitted she doesn't date anyone under 30. She also shared her admiration for Barack Obama. However, her biggest crush was reserved for David Hasselhoff during their collaboration on "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie".

5. Scarlett and Katy

Johansson inadvertently played a role in Katy Perry's breakout hit "I Kissed A Girl". Inspired by Scarlett's lips, Perry wrote the song. When informed of this, Johansson humorously expressed her desire for a cut of the success. Perhaps a friendly kiss between them could put an end to any potential legal disputes.

6. Comfortable in Her Own Skin

Scarlett has never shied away from onscreen nudity, displaying her body with confidence. From the unnerving scenes in "Under The Skin" to a brief flash in "He's Just Not That Into You", she embraces nudity when it serves a purpose in storytelling. A prime example of her comfort in her own skin was her relaxed reaction to a reporter playfully honking her bosom at the 2006 Golden Globes.

7. Venturing into Directing

Alongside her acting prowess, Johansson has stepped behind the camera as well. Although her first short film, "These Vagabond Shoes", ended up being relegated to a DVD extra, she will mark her full directorial debut this year by adapting Truman Capote's first novel, "Summer Crossing".

8. Love for Tattoos

Known for her stunning looks, Johansson also adorns her body with tattoos. She currently sports four known tattoos, including a horseshoe design with the words "Lucky You" on her ribcage, a small circular sunset stamp on her left arm, a hidden charm bracelet design that reads "I Heart NY" on her right wrist, and an ankle tattoo featuring two interlinked circles and the letter 'A'. Each tattoo holds special significance to Scarlett, though she prefers to keep those details private.

9. A Philanthropist at Heart

Early in her career, Scarlet actively engaged with charitable causes. Despite controversy surrounding her involvement with an Israeli-run company conflicting with her role as an Oxfam ambassador, she has backed 27 charities, donated over 2,000 pairs of shoes to Soles4Souls, and participated in aid work in Kenya and Rwanda. She even offered herself as a date to the highest bidder on eBay, with the proceeds going to charity.

10. Cherishing Privacy

Scarlett Johansson cherishes her privacy and prefers to keep her personal life out of the spotlight. While the media occasionally makes it difficult, she enjoys the simple pleasures of life, such as going to the cinema. In fact, Scarlett has admitted to dressing up as a man, complete with a fake mustache, to watch movies incognito, and even going to the extent of using the men's restrooms.
