LOS ANGELES, June 30 (UPI) — Scarlett Johansson has been named the highest grossing actress of all time.

The feat revealed by Box Office Mojo, reveals that Johansson’s films have collectively amassed over $3.3 billion at the North American box office.

This places Johansson at No. 10 on the top ten list of highest grossing Hollywood performers led by Harrison Ford, whose film’s have earned $4.8 billion domestically over his long career.

The 31-year-old has starred in 37 films including her time as Black Widow in Marvel’s lucrative¬†“Avengers” series which recently brought in $404.3 million and counting from “Captain America: Civil War”. Johansson also starred in Disney’s Jungle Book reboot which brought in $358.4 million.

The next actress following Johansson on the list is Cameron Diaz at No. 19 whose collective total equals just above $3 billion.

In May, Johansson discussed her earnings and the gender wage gap in Hollywood during an interview with Cosmopolitan stating, “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.”

Johansson is next set to star in Paramount’s upcoming adaption of popular anime, “Ghost in the Shell.”
