“This year (2011) I’ve learned a lot about patience and tolerance,” said Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, 27, citing her ultimate Christmas wish that “2012 brings a re-election for President Obama.”

Speaking at the premier of her latest film, “We Bought a Zoo,” the actress said her only Christmas wish was Obama's re-election. She added that she hoped the American public would vote him back for a second term, when the U.S. goes to the polls next year.

Johansson also spoke to HollywoodLife about her perfect plan for a holiday.

Sleeping, I'm going to be sleeping through the holidays. I'm looking forward to a long winter's nap!” she said.

The actress, who divorced husband, Ryan Reynolds, in July, said she had been “really fortunate”, despite the turbulence and disturbing incidents in her personal and professional life.

“I've found that I had, even in times of crisis, a lot of love around me, and people have come out of all different dark corners to support me. That's been a really beautiful thing,” she said in an interview on the Today Show.
