Scarlett Johansson was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on May 2nd in front of Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum on Hollywood Boulevard. Scarlett was honored for her accomplishments in film and had her mother Melanie Sloan and grandmother Dorothy Sloan in attendance.
Also in attendance for the occasion was Scarlett’s “Avengers” co-star Jeremy Renner. He spoke at the ceremony and joked, “Working with her was tremendous…ly awful. For six months, she continuously threw me around, beat me, stepped on me and wiped the floor with my dignity and self-respect every day – all with a smile on her face. Now, finally, I get to step on you, sweetheart.”
Scarlett said of the ceremony, “I was totally thrilled, of course, because I feel very nostalgic about that kind of thing. It’s a wonderful tradition, and I felt like I finally made it. I really did! I was like, ‘Wow! I’ve been in the industry for twenty years, and I’ve worked since I was a kid.’ It felt like a big milestone.”
Afterward she thanked Jeremy for being her “knight in shining armor” and said that her mother and her grandmother for “inspiring me to be a strong, modern, independent woman. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel like the luckiest person in the world to have the job that I love.”
Congratulations to Scarlett on her achievement!
