Scarlett Johansson isn’t a president’s daughter. She just plays one on “Saturday Night Live.” But one day, she could be on someone’s ballot.

“I’ve always been interested in local politics,” she told Michael Strahan in an interview. “Right now I think with my young daughter, and also as my career is going right, it’s not the right time. But eventually, maybe if my daughter was older and I could totally focus myself on something like that, I think it could be interesting.”

Just in case you’re curious about her wanting to emulate her fave candidate in 2016, Hillary Clinton, Johansson will be just eligible to run for president in 2020. She’s 32 now — and turns 35 in November 2019.

The actress who once bought a Los Angeles home with then husband Ryan Reynolds for $2.8 million is called one of Hollywood’s highest-grossing actresses of all time, “with her films making over $3.6 billion,” says Wikipedia. “In 2016, she added another $1.2 billion to that box office record, being the highest grossing actor of the year.”

A chunk of that change would help launch her political career when daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac (with Romain Dauriac, whom she recently divorced) is older than her current 2.
