We love seeing Scarlett Johanssonkick ass as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the actress caught our attention long before that. ET first met 13-year-old Scarlett back in 1998 to talk about her newest project, The Horse Whisperer.

In the movie, Scarlett plays Grace, a young girl injured in a tragic horseback riding accident, who learns how to get back in the saddle with the help of a horse expert, played by Robert Redford.

Though Scarlett played a skilled horseback rider, she admitted at the time that she had no training prior to taking on the movie.

“I didn't know what I was doing and I was very unsure of myself,” Johansson told ET. “After taking many lessons and working with the wranglers, I became obsessed with it -- so it's a new thing for me, I'm excited.”

The movie was shot in beautiful Montana, the same state where she would marry her now-husband Romain Dauriac on Oct. 1, 2014.

“I could see having a vacation home there,” said Johansson of Montana. “Maybe someday I will have a home there and get to spend more time there.”
