5 Things You Didn't Know About Scarlett Johansson!

Johansson addressed the backlash in a recent interview. "Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive," she said. "Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders."And as for Sanders, he is standing by his decision. "I was flattered and honored that she would be in this film," he said. "I think, certainly people who were around the original anime have been vehemently in support of her because she's incredible and there are very few like her." That's for sure. Here, five things you may not have known about Scarlett Johansson.

1. Johansson is considering running for office some day.Lest you forget, the actress showed her support for Barack Obama throughout both of his presidential campaigns, and was also behind Hillary Clinton during the 2017 race. More recently, she took to marching and speaking at events like the Women's March in January. "I've always been interested in local politics," Johansson said in an interview on Thursday. "Right now, I think with my young daughter, and also as my career is going right now, it's not the right time." Johansson continued: "But eventually, maybe if my daughter was older and I could totally focus myself on something like that, I think it could be interesting." In the meantime, Johansson has no qualms about lampooning the First Daughter, as she did earlier this month for her stint hosting Saturday Night Live in an impersonation that rivaled Alec Baldwin's as the Donald.
