Check out this brand new article, where Scarlett talks about her recent “engagement”, USO tour and Heath Ledger’s death.

I know it is a little off-topic but I’d also like to take the moment to acknowledge the passing of this great actor. Heath has always been one of my favorites and his death has left me devastated. What a terrible loss. My heart truly goes out to his family, friends and colleagues. Rest in peace, Heath… You will be greatly missed.

Scarlett Johansson returned from the Persian Gulf with a whole lot of soldiers’ trinkets and a delusion of her own engagement — to Barack Obama.

“I am engaged … to Barack Obama,” Johansson joked in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. “My heart belongs to Barack, and that is who I am currently, finally, engaged to. Yes.”

Johansson, who showed her support for the Democratic presidential candidate at the Iowa caucus earlier this month, was really just deflecting a question about rumors she might be engaged (to actor-beau Ryan Reynolds).

The 23-year-old actress talked about the warm welcome she received while visiting troops stationed in the Persian Gulf last week. Johansson dropped by U.S. bases in Kuwait on Jan. 17 and Jan. 18 as part of a USO tour in which she met about 3,500 men and women in uniform.

“Everybody that I met there was so incredibly friendly and polite and genuine and generous,” she said. “They were so, so sweet. I mean, I was just amazed.”

Johansson said some people ripped patches off their jackets as gifts and handed her challenge coins from their military units. One Marine offered up his St. Christopher medal. Another starstruck guy gushed: “You made my whole deployment!”

Johansson has a full plate for 2008, with the release of films including The Other Boleyn Girl and He’s Just Not That Into You, as well as the arrival of her debut album on May 20.

The disc, called “Anywhere I Lay My Head,” features Tom Waits cover songs and one original track. “It was a really, really sort of inspired process to make this CD, and it was something I’d never done before,” said Johansson, who said the album has a dreamy, ethereal quality.

On a far more serious note: Johansson was still speechless Thursday over the death of fellow actor Heath Ledger, who was found dead Tuesday in his Manhattan apartment.

“I’m really just so very shocked,” she said. “He was an incredibly sweet, kindhearted and enthusiastic person. And, you know, he loved his daughter — I mean, that was like the light of his life. It’s just a terrible loss.”

Man, the comment Scarlett says about Obama makes her sound so stupid.

Hell, celebrities and their lame endorsements of politics is the main reason why I’m not voting. I hate Republicans and Democrats. They’re both full of shit.

You should really think things through before you say them.
This is a serious matter in regards to our next President.
Stick to what you know, or go back to school and study History.
Also, you might want to check and see what the canidates “stand” for and want for our future…….we need a little more than “nice”.

I think I don’t understand the first reaction. So because you’re a woman you have to vote for a woman? I thought
people voted for a person’s ideas/program, not for his/her gender. If I did understand your reaction, why did you write ‘Choose wisely’?
Great that ScarJo has got a clear opinion about politics and very nice of her to visit these brave young men in the Persian Gulf! I’m sorry if I typed some faults. English is not my motherlanguage.

I think politicians should get votes from people about how people see then as seen politicians, and not through having celebrity endorsements.

I remember that she was in campagnie for John Kerry, now for Barrack; ok it’s good, but I don’t want she involved in politics or something you know
