Did she really say this?

It absolutely boggles the mind as to why these Hollywood folks cannot seem to keep their mouths shut.

SCARLETT JOHANSSON has slammed US PRESIDENT GEORGE W BUSH for his staunch conservative views on sex, criticising the Republican for being too unrealistic in his opinions on the topic. The LOST IN TRANSLATION movie star last month (10OCT06) boasted about being so "socially aware" she gets tested for HIV twice a year. A staunch Christian, Bush is vehemently anti-abortion and is seeking to have the operation made illegal in all US states. During his time as Governor of Texas, Bush overhauled the state's sex education system and high school students were taught abstinence was the only way to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Johansson says, "We are supposed to be liberated in America but if our President had his way, we wouldn't be educated about sex at all. "Every woman would have six children and we wouldn't be able to have abortions."

A couple of questions-

Does Scarlett really believe that since she gets herself tested twice a year for HIV really mean that she will not get the disease?

Other than abstinence- what other way absolutely 100% guarantees that a person will not get a sexually transmitted disease?

Who the heck is Scarlett Johansson, and do we really care what she has to say? :/ The Hollyweird types just keep getting farther and farther from reality. But people still "idolize" them....for what purpose, I have NO idea! sigh...

See LOST IN TRANSLATION and THE GIRL WITH THE PEARL EARRING. Great actress who as an American citizen has a right to speak out on her government just like you or I. It only gets in the paper because of her celebrity.

Not that much different than any First Lady who uses her position to promote her cause or Miss America who does the same.

The problem most people have with a Hollywood celeb doing it is that 9 times out of 10, it is a liberal position being advocated. One notable exception, Magnum PI, Tom Selleck, taking a stand in favor of the right to bear arms.
