Scarlett Johansson appeared at the Democratic National Convention in support of President Obama. That doesn’t mean she was going to tell other people who to vote for, though.

“In 2008, less than half of all eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 24 voted,” she said. “Young America, why are we only speaking with half our voice when so many issues at stake here, directly affect us? You know who I’m voting for. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for. I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”

She continued, “Over the last two days, we’ve been reminded of something that perhaps we forgot: what has been accomplished, and what is at stake. Whether we can get health care, afford college, be guaranteed equal pay — all at risk. And that’s why I’m here today — to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”
