Scarlett Johansson recently broke up the boys’ club when she cracked the top ten of highest-grossing actors of all time this year.

According to Box Office Mojo, the 31-year-old is the only female actor in the top 10 and the youngest by 20 years, the Guardian reported.

With her films making over $3.3 billion in the US alone, the Lucy star has been placed above Matt Damon, Liam Neeson and Will Smith.

Johansson grabbed the 10th spot on the list, while Cameron Diaz, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts and Elizabeth Banks secured the 19th, 26th, 29th, 30th and 31st positions, respectively.
