| Entertainment

Well, at least Scarlett Johansson had a great 2016!

The actress has been named the top-grossing star of 2016 by Forbes, citing her draw of $1.2 billion in global ticketing sales, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Johansson reprised her role as Black Widow for Captain America: Civil War, which was the top-grossing movie of the year at the worldwife box office. She also had a role in Hail, Caesar!, a film written and directed by the Coen brothers.

Civil War allowed stars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. to come in behind Johansson on the list, as well, tying for second place with $1.15 billion.

To calculate the rankings, Forbes added up the global tickets sales for top actors' movies using data from Box Office Mojo. The calculations didn't include animated movies and only included top-billing stars who had significant screen time.

Ryan Reynolds, Ben Afflect and Rogue One's Felicity Jones made the list too.
