Scarlett Johansson returned from the Persian Gulf with a whole lot of soldiersâ€™ trinkets and a delusion of her own engagement â€” to Barack Obama.
The sexy actress joked, â€œI am engaged … to Barack Obama. My heart belongs to Barack, and that is who I am currently, finally, engaged to. Yes.â€
The actress, who showed support to presidential candidate, was just preventing a question about engagement rumors with Ryan Reynolds.
The 23-year-old actress also revealed on warm welcome while visiting troops last week, saying, â€œEverybody that I met there was so incredibly friendly and polite and genuine and generous. They were so, so sweet. I mean, I was just amazed.â€
Scarlett Johansson has films to be released such as â€œThe Other Boleyn Girlâ€ and â€œHeâ€™s Just Not That Into You,â€ as well as the arrival of her debut album on May 20.
Her album â€œAnywhere I Lay My Head,â€ features Tom Waits cover songs and one original track. The actress said, â€œIt was a really, really sort of inspired process to make this CD, and it was something Iâ€™d never done before.â€
On the death of fellow actor Heath Ledger, she added, â€œIâ€™m really just so very shocked. He was an incredibly sweet, kindhearted and enthusiastic person. And, you know, he loved his daughter â€” I mean, that was like the light of his life. Itâ€™s just a terrible loss.â€
