Scarlett Johansson thinks Hillary Clinton would be a “step forward” for America, if not for Johansson’s own career. In Harper’s Bazaar U.K., Johansson gave Clinton her endorsement, if and when she runs. “I think Hillary Clinton would make a wonderful president. I think we could only benefit from having someone in office who has been a mother,” she said. “Women have a different perspective and appreciation of humanity because of that maternal instinct.” All this love, despite her rep’s statement that (contrary to rumors) Johansson has never even been approached about Rodham, the upcoming HRC biopic! “I come from a very politically active family,” she told the magazine. True, it’s not like she just pipes up about politics when there’s a role in it. She was a big Obama supporter, and also stumps for comptroller-hopeful Scott Stringer, with whom her grandmother fought for affordable housing.
