Senator Barack Obama this week denied that he had a running e-mail relationship with Scarlett Johansson. "You'd imagine that someone like the senator who is constantly traveling and constantly 'on' — how can he return these personal e-mails?" the actress told the website Politico a couple of weeks ago. "But he does."
"She sent one e-mail to Reggie, who forwarded it to me," Obama said matter-of-factly, referring to his personal assistant, Reggie Love. "I write saying, 'Thank you Scarlett for doing what you do,' and suddenly we have this 'e-mail relationship'." BURN!
Scarlett, an ardent Obama supporter, had also gushed: "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.”
