Scarlett Johansson would be more than happy to enter politics

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actress says it would be her privelege to be able to run for public office.

The 32-year-old actress, who has a two-year-old Rose with her estranged husband Romain Dauriac, says she would consider entering politics when her daughter is older, reported Femalefirst.

"Hopefully I can protest peacefully. I'd rather not go to jail. If it means running for public office at some point I would consider that.

"It would be a pleasure, a privilege to be able to run for public office. I've always imagined that you could be most effective that way, if you had the constitution for it," told Event magazine.

"Right now I'm still running after a mini-me. The few times I've been to the Correspondents' Dinner and seen how global politics work, I've seen that all these dealings that affect the whole world happen in small rooms. It's not too dissimilar to the industry I'm familiar with," she adds.

Earlier this year, the actress gave a passionate speech at an anti-Trump rally, where she spoke about the need for family-planning clinics and her own personal experiences with them as a teenager.
