Despite Johansson’s stature in the industry, her role in ‘Asteroid City’ comprises only brief appearances within the approximately 100-minute runtime.

Johansson’s disclosed salary for ‘Asteroid City’ amounted to $4,000 weekly. Considering the film’s two-month shooting schedule, her total earnings from the project reached approximately $36,000. This figure is notably lower than her usual earnings as one of Hollywood’s leading actresses.

In addition to her revelations about ‘Asteroid City,’ Johansson has been embroiled in a legal dispute with Disney regarding the release of another film, ‘Black Widow.’


The disagreement stemmed from a contractual agreement between Johansson and Disney, linking her salary to the box-office performance of ‘Black Widow.’
