Even your most eagle-eyed followers won't be able to tell you're actually posing with a strikingly lifelike wax figure of the pouty-lipped starlet at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square. Johansson is the newest addition to Madame Tussauds stunning collection of icons from the worlds of entertainment, sports, and politics and is currently on view now.

It's the first time Johansson has been immortalized by Madame Tussauds—which has locations around the world—and it's fitting the debut takes place in the actress's hometown of New York City.

Her figure wears an off-the-shoulder, fitted bodice gown recalling her Costume Institute Gala dress from 2012. The result is a stunning replication and a testiment to the skilled artisans that bring Madame Tussauds' figures to life.

"In addition to the four weeks it took to create the dress alone," according to Tussauds, "studio artists spent months painstakingly recreating Johansson’s look: each strand of hair was placed by hand, her tattoos meticulously replicated and her eye color perfectly matched."

The star of Lost in Translation, Vicky Christina Barcelona and The Avengers joins a long line of living legends and beauties past from Marilyn Monroe to Madonna to Miley Cyrus.

And as temperatures continue to rise in NYC this summer, one thing is certain: ScarJo has only made the city hotter.
