Scarlett Johansson: "Trying To Find McCain’s Youthful Core Group Is Going To Be Challenging"

Politico chatted with buxom 23-year-old actress Scarlett Johansson. In addition to offering the above, derisive quote about the youth vote and McCain, Johansson talked about trading emails with Senator Barack Obama, whom she has supported for years. She's joined him on the campaign trail, liaised with Teal Baker, done PSA's and made cold calls. But the most intriguing tidbit we came away with is that Scarlett and Barack traded emails on the banality of Charlie Gibson and George "Chihuahua" Stephanopoulos' line of questioning at that fateful debate. From Politico:

"She e-mailed him after some of the Democratic debates, offering her thoughts on his messages and performance. 'After the silliness of the last ABC debate,' she says of the highly criticized event co-hosted by Charles Gibson and George Stephanopoulos, she wrote to congratulate him on 'holding his ground.'

"His replies have been thoughtful, she says, more than a brief line or two; on the ABC debate, he responded that the questioning was 'difficult' and he was being pounded on 'one silly question after another.'"

That's how we like to imagine the DC-Hollywood connect that is "Obansson," laughing at the squares.
