Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson apparently never had a crush on Barack Obama. Or at least in the way some media outlets have made it out to be.

In fact, the actress believes all the attention surrounding her recent comments about an email relationship with the Democratic presidential hopeful reeks of "extreme sexism."

"I kept thinking to myself, 'God, if this was just, like, Kal Penn or George Clooney or any of the other [Obama] surrogates or supporters...there wouldn't be [any] question about it," she tells the Associated Press. "Nobody would even talk about it."

Perhaps. But then again, that Kumar guy never claimed to have had a "personal dialogue" with the Illinois senator, only to have him say that he had replied to just one email which had been forwarded to him by an assistant.

Whatever the case may be, ScarJo, take heart in knowing that we would definitely return your emails, however many. We’re here if you need us.
