Happy Birthday Scarlett Johansson! The actress, famous for her roles in Lost in Translation, Matchpoint and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, turns 27 years old on Tuesday.

Johansson, a four-time Golden Globe award nominee, has had quite the year, both in her professional and personal life.

For several weeks, her nude photo scandal was the talk of the town, after a hacker stole pictures from her cell phone and published them on the internet. The same hacker has also been accused of hacking into the e-mail accounts of Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.

Just because you're in the spotlight, or just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy . . . if that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong, Johansson told CNN in September.

Johansson later revealed to Vanity Fair that the personal photos were intended for Ryan Reynolds, when they were married. (The couple's divorce was finalized in July).

They were sent to my husband . . . there's nothing wrong with that. It's not like I was shooting a porno. Although there's nothing wrong with that either, Johansson told the magazine in November.

With the scandal now behind her, Johansson has plenty of professional work to look forward to.

Johansson is currently on location in Scotland working on the big screen adaptation of Michel Faber's novel Under the Skin,

This past summer, she wrapped an intense shoot for The Avengers, due in May 2012. Johansson's next theatrical release is the family-friendly drama We Bought a Zoo with Matt Damon.

And just last week, it was announced that Johansson will be switching over to the role of director. The New York native is set to direct an adaptation of Truman Capote's Summer Crossing. According to several reports, Johansson will not be appearing in the film.
