Scarlett Johansson Highest Grossing ActressA recent report has revealed a new queen of the domestic box office: Scarlett Johansson is officially Hollywood's highest-grossing actress of all time.

That superlative comes straight from the folks at Box Office Mojo, which tabulated the gross box office take of all movies made by individual actors in Hollywood. Johansson is officially the 10th-highest grossing star ever, male or female, and leads the rest of her actress peers with a whopping $3.33 billion in total box office earnings over the course of 37 films. (That's an average of more than $90 million per movie.)

Unsurprisingly, much of that haul comes from the actress's Marvel-affiliated role as Black Widow in the "Avengers" series and its interconnected MCU properties, like the "Captain America" flicks. Her biggest-earning film remains 2012's "The Avengers," which has raked in $623.4 million domestically. (All of Box Office Mojo's numbers for this particular list are domestic figures.)

The next-highest actress on the list is Cameron Diaz, who comes it at number 19 with an impressive $3.03 billion total gross, averaging just over $89 million per flick. She's followed by Helena Bonham Carter at number 26 ($2.82 billion), Cate Blanchett at number 29 ($2.81 billion), and Julia Roberts at number 30 ($2.73 billion).

The top 10 highest-grossing actors -- male and female -- are:

1. Harrison Ford: $4.872 billion
2. Samuel L. Jackson: $4.647 billion
3. Morgan Freeman: $4.434 bullion
4. Tom Hanks: $4.341 billion
5. Robert Downey Jr.: $3.944 billion
6. Eddie Murphy: $3.81 billion
7. Tom Cruise: $3.587 billion
8. Johnny Depp: $3.367 billion
9. Michael Caine: $3.342 billion
10. Scarlett Johansson: $3.333 billion
