Scarlett Johansson Supports President Obama in Charlotte
Making her support known, Scarlett Johansson spoke for President Barack Obama on Thursday night (September 6), as she took to the stage to address Democratic Nationa Convention-goers in Charlotte, NC on Thursday (September 6).
Ms. Johansson was seen wearing rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag as she spoke of the struggles her family had growing up in New York City, living in lower-to-middle class housing.
The 27-year-old actress and model expressed how much government-based programs, such as Planned Parenthood and Medicaid, helped her family and friends.
Scarlett made clear she was not at the convention on behalf of Hollywood, but rather on behalf of women, “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.”
The blonde beauty expressed concerned at low turnout among the youth vote in the past, but expressed hope for increased support saying, "I'm not going to tell you who to vote for, I'm here to ask you to commit to vote."
