t's almost a decade since Scarlett Johansson became a major star thanks to Sofia Coppola's "Lost In Translation," and the actress continues to confound expectations; her diverse pick of roles of late has included a Cameron Crowe rom-com, superhero epic "The Avengers," playing Janet Leigh in "Hitchcock" and, coming up, playing a cannibalistic alien in Jonathan Glazer's "Under The Skin." And now she's taking another curve; she' s going to direct.

It's hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson is only 27 years old. The actress carries herself with the air and beauty of an old-school movie star, but has the wit and wisdom of your favorite drinking buddy. What she's accomplished so far on the big screen is impressive, and what's more exciting is that we're only at the beginning of what is likely be a long, varied and fascinating career. A testament to how diverse she has become can be seen in her next trio of movies -- Cameron Crowe's holiday crowd-pleaser "We Bought A Zoo"; the geek fave "The Avengers" and Jonathan Glazer's sci-fi indie "Under The Skin" -- but as she reveals to Vanity Fair in a recent profile, the material comes first.
