Scarlett Johansson hosted a fundraiser for 2013 NYC mayoral candidate Scott Stringer last night at Manhattan's Maritime Hotel. Stringer is currently the Manhattan borough president, and has been a longtime friend of Scarlett and the Johansson family. Yesterday was just the latest example of Scarlett throwing her political weight behind Stringer. She also hosted a Scott Stringer event at the Plaza Hotel with her brother Hunter back in Oct. 2011.
Aside from the politicking, Scarlett and boyfriend Nate Naylor have been finding time to hang out. They reportedly spent a recent PDA-filled night at East Village bar Cabin Down Below. The fun with family and friends comes ahead of Scarlett's press tour for The Avengers. The blockbuster, in which Scarlett reprises her role as Black Widow, is out in the US on May 4.
