** FLASHBACK 2008 **

Remember when Scarlett Johansson gushed about her e-relationship with Barack Obama:

“You’d imagine that someone like the senator who is constantly traveling and constantly ‘on’ — how can he return these personal e-mails? But he does.

“And in his off-time I know he also calls people who have donated the minimum to thank them. Nobody sees it. Nobody talks about it, but it’s incredible. I feel like I’m supporting someone, and having a personal dialogue with them. And it’s amazing … I am engaged to Barack Obama. My heart belongs to Barack.”

She even said that Obama responded to one e-mail about a debate, noting it was “one silly question after another.”

Barack Obama Feeling The Need To Address The Weird Relationship

“She sent one e-mail to Reggie [Love], who forwarded it to me. I write saying, ‘Thank you, Scarlett, for doing what you do.’ And suddenly we have this e-mail relationship.”

Scarlett Johansson Replied

“”I’m banned from using my email now. The media won’t allow that … I kept thinking to myself, ‘God, if this was just like … George Clooney or any of the other [Obama] surrogates or supporters … there wouldn’t be [any] question about it. Nobody would even talk about it … It seemed to me to be like a product of extreme sexism.”
