Scarlett Johansson is making history, you guys.
The Avengers star has been named the highest grossing actress of all time by Box Office Mojo.
According to the site, the 31-year-old’s work has garnered an impressive domestic box office revenue of $3.3 billion dollars.
Not only is Johansson the only female in the top ten on the prestigious list—and she’s in the tenth spot, it should be noted—but she’s the youngest actor named.
Harrison Ford, Samuel L. Jackson, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Robert Downey Jr., Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise,Michael Caine and Johnny Depp all round out the rest of the high-ranking celebs.
The second-highest grossing female on the list is none other than Cameron Diaz, who comes in at 19, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Banks,Emma Watson and Anne Hathaway (who are numbers 26, 29, 30, 31, 32 and 50, respectively).
Johansson, who starred in The Jungle Book, Hail, Caesar! andCaptainAmerica: Civil War this year, previously spoke about the gender pay gap in Hollywood in her interview withCosmopolitan.
“There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole. I am very fortunate, I make a really good living and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage.”
She added, “I think every woman has [been underpaid]. But unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general.”
