Actress Scarlett Johansson said at the Women in the World New York Summit Thursday that she would not rule out a future political run.
Asked by Ariana Huffington if she was “thinking of running for office,” Johansson would not commit to a definitive answer.
“I don’t know,” Johansson said. “I’ve always been interested in local politics. I think that’s where you make the most effective changes in your community.”
“I would never rule anything out,” Johansson added.
However, Johansson said that she would not run “for a long time,” given her current career and family status.
Huffington proposed the idea of Johansson serving as Mayor of New York.
“It would be great,” Johansson said. “I would like to see more affordable housing in New York City, and I’d like to see a greener city.”
Huffington voiced her support for a possible political candidate in Johansson, saying, “If you decide to run for anything, all these women here, we would put on our pussy hats and campaign for you.”
Johansson gave a speech at the January Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
