Scarlett Johansson Becomes One Of The Very Few Nollywood Individuals Investing In Digital Vault Software Service


Actor Scarlett Johansson has been involved in setting a new record alongside a group of other celebrities and venture capital firms with a $620m investment in digital vault software service 1Password. The series C round, concluded last week, is thought to be the biggest in Canada and values the company at $6.8 billion.

Joining Johansson are X-Men and Avengers stars Ryan Reynolds and Robert Downey Jr, as well as Pharrell Williams and Rita Wilson. Other celebrity investors include Ashton Kutcher, Trevor Noah, Justin Timberlake, Chris Evans and Matthew McConaughey.

1Password offers consumers and businesses an online storage space for passwords, software licences and other sensitive information, with fees beginning at $2.99 a month. It claims to have 15 million users.

Johansson, 37, has a net worth of $165m, according to wealth-tracking website Celebrity Net Worth.


She was the highest paid actress in 2018 and 2019, at $40.5m and $56m respectively. The nine Marvel films earned her a total of $95m in fees and profits, according to Yahoo! Finance, with $20m coming from Black Widow alone.
Johansson is also sought after by fashion and luxury brands, making between $10m and $20m annually from endorsements. She has worked with the likes of L’Oreal, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Mango, Calvin Klein and Moet & Chandon.

She has a sizeable real-estate portfolio worth about $20m and has properties in New York and Los Angeles.

Her Manhattan penthouse has been on the market for more than 18 months. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is now available for $1.86m, after initially listing for $2.3m, according to The New York Post.
