Obama hoopla caused by
sexism, says Scarlett


Remember when Scarlett Johansson told everyone about her e-mail "relationship" with Barack Obama, causing ripples of excitement in both Hollywood and political circles? The actress now insists that "extreme sexism" was responsible for the hubbub. "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] questions about it," she tells the Associated Press. "Nobody would even talk about it." That may be true, but George and Kal weren't talking to the media about their e-mail exchanges with the presidential candidate, were they, Scarlett?
