Actress Scarlett Johansson revealed she would be open to running for public office in the future in an interview Wednesday.
In a conversation with Good Morning America‘s Michael Strahan, the 32-year-old Avengers star said she has been “interested” in local politics for some time, but family commitments and her film career have kept her plenty busy.
“I’ve always, like I said, been interested in local politics,” the actress said. “Right now, I think with my young daughter and also the way my career is going right now … it’s just not the right time. But eventually, maybe when my daughter is older and I can totally focus myself on something like that, I think it could be interesting.”
The Ghost in the Shell star said she makes no apologies for supporting liberal policies that might offend her potential audience: “I’m not afraid to say what I feel is right, just because I think that I’m going to face criticism, or some people might not like me.”
