Scarlet Johansson Goes Off On President, Other Issues

by at . Comments

It's not enough for Scarlett Johansson to be the Sexiest Woman Alive. The actress is going for the title of Most Outspoken, as well.

She recently blasted President George W. Bush for his anti-abortion opinions, saying:

"We're supposed to be liberated in America, but if our president had his way, we wouldn't be educated about sex at all. Every woman would have six children and we wouldn't be able to have abortions."

Bush, of course, had no comment because he was busy ogling pictures of Matt Lauer.

Johansson wasn't finished with her critiques. She seemingly leveled criticism at Bono, Brangelina and other charitable stars.

"You're always going to have people who hop on the bandwagon when something is hip," Scarlett said. "The important thing to remember is that women and children in Africa need help and that has nothing to do with my career."

From there, the Lost In Translation star insisted the movie industry was too obsessed with the weight of their leading ladies. We just hope Kate Bosworth was listening.

"It is obvious to me that there is an overwhelming amount of women, of actors I look at, and they're too thin for my taste," Johansson said. "There's mass genocide, starvation and epidemics but people don't want to talk about those things - they just want to talk about who eats what for lunch. Who cares? I think all Americans are obsessed with weight and it's wrong."

We think that was the quote, at least. But we're not sure. We were busy writing about how thin Nicole Richie is.
