Shrugging off ridiculous rumors that she and boyfriend Ryan Reynolds are engaged, Scarlett Johansson told the Associated Press that her intentions lie with another famous fella — presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

"I’m engaged to Barack Obama," she joked in an interview following her return from Kuwait, where she’d been visiting U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East. "My heart belongs to Barack. That is who I am currently, finally, engaged to."

Earlier this week, Scarlett’s rep spoke to OK! in an attempt to put a stop to the Ryan Reynolds rumors, saying there was "no truth" to a NY Daily News item claiming the couple were making plans to walk down the aisle.
