As we previously announced. Scarlett attended yesterday to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte (North Carolina). You can watch the video of her speech clicking here and here you have some extracts:

“I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”

Johansson, dressed in rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag, spoke of growing up in a struggling middle-class family in New York City and living in a housing development for lower-middle-class families. Her family depended on benefits for school transport and food, she said, and some of her friends still depend on Planned Parenthood and Medicaid.

“That’s why I’m here today, to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”

“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”

This week, Oxfam Ambassador Actress Scarlett Johansson visited Kenya to see the devastating impact of the drought in East Africa. More than 13 million people are at risk because of a severe drought that has hit parts of Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia. In Somalia, the crisis has escalated to a famine.

She visited the Dadaab refugee camp, where tens of thousands of Somali refugees have arrived:

“The scale of poverty in Dadaab is overwhelming,” said Johansson. “I met countless women like Hawa, a local community leader, who lamented the seemingly endless struggle of the Somali people, as refugees of war and starvation and now left to suffer everyday life with the very barest of essentials.

She also visited the Turkana region of northern Kenya, where communities suffer from chronic droughts that have destroyed their lives and livelihoods.

“This is a longterm and escalating crisis exacerbated by political conflict, famine and drought that can no longer be ignored. Over half the Somalis that have died are children; an entire generation lost. This is no longer an issue that can only garner some attention, some of the time. Extreme action must be taken by the global community now.”

An Oxfam Ambassador since 2004, Scarlett visited the region to see Oxfam’s life-saving work. Oxfam aims to reach 3.5 million people with emergency relief, as well as helping with long-standing threats to livelihoods and building the resilience of the communities where it works.

The sad news Tuesday of Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ divorce conjures a lot of questions, like who gets the New York apartment, the L.A. home, maybe custody of the favorite frozen-yogurt joint. But what about The Whale?

Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson A several-ton orca looms over the Reynolds-Johansson split, in the form of a documentary narrated by Reynolds and executive produced by both actors. The film follows Luna, a killer whale separated from his pod near British Columbia — not far from where Johansson and Reynolds wed in a secret ceremony in September 2008.

“We have no reason to believe that their passion and commitment to this project will waver as a result of any changes in their personal lives,” a producer for the film told the Ministry in an e-mail.
