Barrack Obama put recent reports suggesting that he was in regular touch over e-mail with actress Scarlett Johansson in perspective saying that he responded to a single email from her thanking her for her support.
"She sent one email to [my assistant] Reggie [Love], who forwarded it to me," he said. "I write saying, 'thank you Scarlett for doing what you do,' and suddenly we have this email relationship."
Obama clarified that Johansson does not have his personal e-mail address.
Earlier this month Johansson told Politico.com that she finds it "amazing" that Barack Obama has the time to answer her adoring e-mails.
"I feel like I'm supporting someone, and having a personal dialogue with them, and it's amazing," added Johansson.
Her statements had been interpreted to suggest that she was regularly exchanging e-mails with the Presumptive Democratic Party Presidential candidate.
Johansson, 23, an ardent supporter of Obama, has campaigned tirelessly for him and appeared in his celebrity-packed Yes We Can Internet music video.
"My heart belongs to Barack," she joked with Associated Press reporter in January. "I am engaged to Barack Obama."
Johansson's twin brother Hunter works on the Obama campaign.

"I want to be a Bond Girl and film a love scene with Daniel Craig after he's rescued me," the Sun quoted her as saying. "I would be drowning, wearing a bikini with a gun in a sachet, and he would dive in and get me that would be really sexy," she said.

"But I would just say to him, 'Look honey, I've got to do this'," she added.

Amy Winehouse might be suffering from tuberculosis as she's reportedly been coughing up blood and suffering a severe chest infection, it has emerged.
The 24-year-old has suffered further weight loss and a loss of appetite - all symptoms of the deadly disease. Winehouse also has an irregular heartbeat and doctors have put her on a drip as they try to get her off her drug addiction.
"Amy is in a bad way. Doctors are still struggling to control her heartbeat but the chest condition has been really worrying them," The Sun quoted a friend, as saying.
"She'd been been suffering horrible coughing fits and hurling up blood for a while but refused to be examined. Doctors now believe it is tuberculosis and are doing more tests to be certain," the friend added.
The 'Rehab' singer collapsed at her home in Camden, North London, on June 16 and was rushed to a clinic by dad Mitch. Doctors were trying to discover if the collapse is related to a seizure she suffered last August when she was hospitalised after a huge drug binge.
"Things sound really bad, but at least now they have found something specific it will be easier to keep her in hospital and free from drugs," a source said. "The word tuberculosis might frighten her into getting herself well. It certainly should do. "She needs to realise she will die if she she doesn't clean up her act," the source added.

The former glamour models 32GG bust helped her cement her place as the queen of mens magazines, but now that shes had them reduced he doesnt mind.
“No, because I am the first man that gets to be with three different women but the same woman and it’s not classed as cheating,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
“She had them big, then reduced them and now when she decides to have them done again, that’ll be three different woman being the same woman and that’s great - it’s like she gets younger every time.”
The Mysterious Girl singer also admitted that he wasnt about to move to the US even though he and Price have been promoting their TV show - Katie and Peter overseas.
“I love America and they’ve been nice to us, but I said to Kate, ‘if I was to move anywhere it would be Australia’,” he said.
“Why would we want to be to America? We’ve got England’s that so good to us, and yes, things could all go pear-shaped tomorrow, but part of chasing a dream, is not chasing America.”

Celebs like Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears and Heather Mills are excessively condemned by the media because of their sex, according to a female academic.
Kirsty Fairclough of the University of Salford will argue at a conference on June 25th that female image has been undervalued through tabloid journalism and paparazzi photography.
Giving the examples of Winehouse and Spears, whose troubled lives have been heavily publicised in the media, she will argue that female celebrities are "routinely condemned for their perceived excessive lifestyles and their disregard for the apparent rules of femininity through extreme diets or weight gain, drug abuse, supposed lack of fashion sense, and an 'unfeminine' need for fame and attention".
According to Fairclough, there is a "paradox" in society's views of women in the limelight. "On one hand female celebrities crave freedom, but on the other hand they still pander to conservative ideas of sexuality through what's been called 'raunch culture'," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"Women are routinely condemned for their behaviour in the media but this isn't just misogyny the bitching culture tends to be about women against women. It's a real step backwards. "The media circus may have reached saturation point with Britney Spears, but I predict it will get worse with other celebrities before it gets better," she added.

In an interview with Fabulous magazine, the actress revealed about her work out regime and the hoopla surrounding her image.
"I don't like working out. I occasionally do Pilates, but the most exercise I get is when I'm out shopping. The amount I do probably burns 2,000 calories a day!" News Of The world quoted Hilton, as saying.
The 27-year-old insists that she is not a dumb blonde; in fact, she has actually a good sense of humour.
She said: "People don't know the real me. I have a good sense of humour and I'm always making my friends laugh. In The Simple Life, I played a dumb blonde, but it's not really me.
"I get really shy when I make public speeches and my cheeks go red, which I hate. I wish I was more confrontational but I can never challenge someone, even if I'm really upset. "I believe in karma and try to treat people the way I want to be treated. I think that what you put into the world will come back to you."

Kim Kardashian is probably more famous for her rear end than for her reality show, especially since former best bud Paris Hilton recently made some not-so-nice comments about her cellulite on a Vegas radio program.
But rather than hiding her comely curves and figure flaws, Kardashian allowed cameras to get up close as she underwent a non-invasive cellulite treatment for an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
"Every girl has cellulite, so why not?" she said. "I wish I'd done it more than once to see the effects."
While so many starlets are uncomfortable being branded as sex symbols, Kardashian totally embraces her public persona and has no plans to alter her image.
"I'm so flattered that I'm considered sexy; I love it," she told Pop Tarts. "I also love that people consider me a role model. I am a normal girl; we all make mistakes but learn so much along the journey of life that it all makes us stronger — that's what I live by."
Well, we're not sure how normal Kimmy K. is, given that she is paid tens of thousands just to turn up at a party. Speaking of which, she has something she wants to set straight.
Glamour model Katie Price is set to sell her implants on the Internet.
Talking to Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins on their Sunday Night Project the busty model revealed that she is selling her boobs on eBay for 1million pounds, reports the Mirror.

While she is all set to give birth to twins, Angelina Jolie has admitted that she never really wanted to have biological children at all.
However, the actress claims that it was her love for partner Brad Pitt that made her change her mind.

But she changed her mind after falling for Pitt after meeting on the set of 2005 movie 'Mr and Mrs Smith'.

She added: "But that changes when you meet someone you love and so your family changes in direction. That was my big surprise."
The celebrity couple have three adopted children: Maddox, 6; Pax, 4, and Zahara, 3, as well as biological daughter Shiloh, 2.

Sex and the City," the long-awaited romantic comedy based on the HBO series of the same name, opened in the top spot at the box office in North America with better-than-expected weekend sales of $55.7 million, distributor Warner Bros. Pictures said on Sunday.
Coming to theaters four years after they ended their six-season run on the small screen, Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker) and pals unleashed a frenzy among the show's fans, who organized "girls' nights out" to catch up with their heroines' exploits.
Going into the weekend, the Time Warner Inc-owned studio had expected the film to earn $25 million to $35 million for the three-day period.
The picture crushed "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," which observers had assumed would whip up a second weekend in first place. Instead, the Paramount Pictures adventure was a distant No. 2 with $46.0 million; it has earned $216.9 million since opening on May 22.
The Rogue Pictures horror film "The Strangers" kicked off at No. 3 with $20.7 million, also surpassing predictions.
Paramount is a unit of Viacom Inc. Rogue is a unit of General Electric Co's NBC Universal.
