Scarlett Johansson To Speak at Democratic Convention – CNN have claimed that they have a list of the speakers at tonight’s Democratic Convention and they include Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
The actresses are unlikely to follow Clint Eastwood’s example at the Republican Convention when he decided to spend some time talking to an empty chair.
Johansson and Portman are also likely to be joined by Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and The Foo Fighters.
Johansson is well-known for being a strong supporter of President Obama and has even said that she has regularly corresponded with him by e-mail.
It is no coincidence that the two parties have such contrasting celebrities speaking on their behalf as the Democrats are keen to pick up plenty of younger voters and women.
Other celebrities linked in with this week’s Democrat event are Will.i.am, James Taylor, Jessica Alba, Marc Anthony and Mary J. Blige.
Johansson was recently seen on a break in Paris with her advertising director boyfriend Nate Naylor.
Vanity Fair has just broken the story that Scarlett was on the Tom Cruise “wife audition’ list in 2004 as well as fellow actress Lindsay Lohan. It was originally thought that the pair were meeting up with Cruise and his team for a possible role in one of the Mission Impossible films but Vanity Fair are saying that the audition was for a very different role indeed.
