Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, who is well known for her part in the “Avengers: Endgame” has recently made a shocking announcement saying that she feels the Democratic Party is “broken in a lot of ways” and “damaged from these past several years.”
During an interview on Thursday, Johansson says she needs to do a “little soul searching” before she makes her decision on who to vote for in 2020.
“Although now is certainly the time to back someone,” she told Variety. “I think I have to do a little soul searching. I think the Democratic Party is broken in a lot of ways and just damaged from these past several years. For me, if there was one candidate that I felt we could all unite behind, certainly that would be the candidate that I would back.”
“They’re out there, certainly. I mean it’s been a strange few weeks,” she continued. “I think it was clear and then it became sort of unclear.”
When it came to her feelings towards Joe Biden, Johansson said “I don’t know,” and when it came to her feelings on the recent sexual harassment allegations against him, she responded with “I’m not sure.”
She was then asked if she had any plans for taking up politics in her future. “I think the greatest way to effect change is in local politics,” she explained. “Maybe at some point in the distant future, I will feel that calling, but I just haven’t.”
Just like most Hollywood celebrities, Johansson voted for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary is the right candidate for right now,” Scarlett said to Variety. “I think she’s got a lot of integrity. She’s got a lot of stamina. She’s a very clever politician, and that’s actually important to me. Maybe it’s because I have a daughter now.”
Johansson has been frequently involved with politics in the past. Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
At the 2012 DNC, the actress extolled the importance of government-funded services like Medicaid and abortion-conglomerate Planned Parenthood. “We went to public schools and depended on programs for school transport and lunches, as did most of my friends,” she said of her childhood. “My girlfriends from high school to this day still depend on Planned Parenthood and often Medicaid for important health care services.”Johansson saw her star power slightly slip in 2017 when both films in which she headlined – “Ghost in the Shell” and “Rough Night” – failed to attract audiences and critical acclaim. Leading up to the release of “Ghost in the Shell,” Johansson actually said that audiences who disagree with her politics should stay home rather than a buy a ticket.
“If fighting, you know, for women’s rights, for women’s reproductive rights, and you know, in support of Planned Parenthood, if that’s going to, you know, mean that some people don’t want to buy a ticket to see ‘Ghost in the Shell’, then … I’m OK with that,” she told “Good Morning America.”
