It’s good to be Scarlett Johansson. The actress, who was just named the highest-grossing actress of all time, also received the Renaissance Award at the Gene Siskel Film Center's annual gala in Chicago.

When “Extra” caught up with the “Captain America” star, who looked stunning in a blue Oscar de la Renta dress, she said she was both happy and disappointed about the highest-grossing achievement, as she trailed behind nine actors.

She explained, “It's exciting to be the only woman in the category,” while noting, “it is kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category, that was a little bit of a surprise to me.”

The 31-year-old also opened up about being a working mom in Hollywood, saying it isn’t easy. “If somebody has the magic recipe for making being a working mom easy, let me know… working moms two thumbs up.”

She loves spending time with her 22-month-old daughter Rose, even when it involves changing dirty diapers. Scarlett said with a smile, “It's my absolute greatest joy to change dirty diapers.” She revealed her technique for getting it done, “I usually try to have something on hand to be distracting, a toy, a song, never works by the way, my daughter still hates it, she hates it.”0
