Once upon a time, Scarlett Johansson dreamed of being cast as a Disney princess. She waited in her tower, but no talking mice, dancing furniture, fairy godmothers, blandly handsome princes, or Hollywood casting agents came to her rescue. Instead, at age 32, she's still waiting -- and now, her 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy is waiting, too.
"My daughter is still young," Johansson told the New York Times's Turning Points magazine. "Right now I think we both share the dream that I will someday be a Disney princess, but it's probably not going to happen. I've been asking for that job for the past 20 years, and nobody has booked me."
Come on, Disney! At least let her voice an animated princess, if not a live-action one -- although Disney is doing live-action everything now, so there should be plenty of opportunities. She just voiced Kaa in "The Jungle Book," so maybe that was her foot in the Disney door.
At the moment, Johansson will have to settle for being Hollywood's highest-grossing actress of all time, earning more than $3.3 billion for film studios. That's mostly thanks to her role as Black Widow in Marvel's Cinematic Universe, but also from the dozens of major and indie films she's made since her first role in 1994's "North" and breakout in 1998's "The Horse Whisperer."
She's next voicing Ash in Illumination Entertainment's animated movie "Sing," then playing The Major in "Ghost in the Shell." And then maybe Disney will finally find her a crown.
