Scarlett Johansson, Interview Magazine

Patrick Demarchelier/Interview

Beauty and brains? She's the total package!

Scarlett Johansson proved in the latest issue of Interview magazine that she's not just another pretty face, she's got smarts on her side, too.

The actress shared her SAT score with the fashion publication and explained she didn't do as well as she would've liked.

"I think the way it worked when I took them was that they were out of 1,600, so maybe you'd get a 1,240 if you were a smarty pants," she explained. "I got a 1,080, which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn't answer half of the math questions."

But it looks like ScarJo's career trajectory took off with great success without any help from her test scores.

The actress explained that even at an early age, she knew she wanted to be a performer despite running into a few obstacles along the way.

"There was someone in my older brother's class who was doing some commercials and theaters, so my mom took me to that kid's agent because I loved musicals," she recalled.

"They didn't want me though. I was devastated. I thought it was the end of my career…and that's when I realized that by crying I could get whatever I wanted," she said laughing.

She also shared how her voice got in the way of a few acting opportunities as a child.

"I was always terrible at commercials because my voice was so deep. At the age of 9, I sounded like a whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking fool," she added. "[I] wasn't going to sell Jell-O with that voice."

But look at her now!
