Scarlett Johansson Exudes ‘Swagger’ in Cosmo

Scarlett Johansson has been one of the more politically active actresses in Hollywood. She supported John Kerry’s presidential bid in 2004 and was a big supporter of President Obama in 2008 and 2012. In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, she slams GOP plans to defund Planned Parenthood. She says it’s ‘nuts!’

Growing up, Scarlett says she used Planned Parenthood services herself. ‘All my girlfriends did—not just for birth control but for Pap smears and breast exams, she says.

Despite her success on the big screen, the 31-year-old actress says she’s had her down moments as well. “Long, long ago, I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable…but, like, so attractively unavailable. You have to get to your breaking point… rock bottom is the moment when you’re like, ‘I’ve lost myself,” she says.

‘Why am I standing outside this bar at 1:30 in the morning texting while my friends are inside? Or taking a taxi to see him at some ungodly hour? This isn’t me.’ That is the moment you’ve gotta cut it off. Otherwise, it will keep coming back, suck your blood,” she tells the magazine.

Johansson says there is one hot button issue she feels a little awkward about when it comes to speaking out–equal pay. ‘There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole… I am very fortunate, I make a really good living, and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage…,’ she says.

‘I think every woman has [been underpaid], but unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general,’ she adds.
