Scarlett Johansson May Run for Office, Isn't Concerned About Boycotts
During a "Good Morning America" interview with Michael Strahan, actress Scarlett Johansson said she would not rule out working in politics in the future.
Johansson, who is currently promoting her new film "Ghost in the Shell," has been vocal in her liberal, anti-President Trump political views.
She even spoke at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. in January, to address issues of women health and inequality.
"I'm not afraid to say what I feel is right, just because I think that I'm going to face criticism, or some people might not like me," she told Strahan. "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 a Shell,' then ... I'm OK with that."
Johansson explained that she comes from a "politically vocal family," and she believes it's important to stand up for what she believes is right.
"I've always, like I said, been interested in local politics," she said. "Right now, I think with my young daughter and also the way my career is going right now ... it's just not the right time. But eventually, maybe when my daughter is older and I can totally focus myself on something like that, I think it could be interesting."
