Scarlett Johansson has taken the crown as Hollywood's highest-grossing actress ever.

A website called Box Office Mojo, which tracks how much money movies make, lists Johansson as the top-earning actress . It says her films have made more than $3.3 billion. Cameron Diaz is the second-highest-grossing actress, at just over $3 billion.

Johansson's status on the list is, no doubt, helped by her recurring role as Black Widow in the Avengers series and other Marvel blockbusters, including this year's Captain America: Civil War.

Despite being top among actresses, Johansson sits in just 10th place overall. Box Office Mojo lists Harrison Ford as the all-time champion. It says his movies have earned nearly $4.9 billion in theatres.
